7 Flirty Texts to Send Your Scorpio Crush
While many will claim it's the "worst" sign, if you're crushing hard on a Scorpio, you already know all of the reasons those people are wrong. Yes, Scorpios can be moody, emotionally guarded and vengeful, but they're also brilliant, brave and deeply loyal to those they love. If you can crack their tough shells, Scorpios can be some of the best partners in dating. Curious about what to text them to get their attention? We have some flirty ideas to get you started.
1. 'That's one of my favorite stories… I'll tell you more about it the next time we hang out.'
When it comes to guarded Scorpios, you won't want to immediately put everything on the table. It'll take a while for them to open up to you completely, and in the meantime, you might as well keep them intrigued with your own air of mystery. Instead of telling them your life story over text, save the juiciest tales for when you can actually hang out in person. Leave them with a cliffhanger and an excuse to hang out IRL, and form an even stronger connection face-to-face.

2. 'I can always count on you to have a unique perspective. You're different… and I like that.'
Chances are that if you're crushing hard on a Scorpio, you've noticed that they're not quite like any other sign of the zodiac. They think differently, seeing the world from a point of view that many others miss, and if you like that about them, don't be afraid to let them know! Scorpios like to have their intellect noticed and appreciated, and if they have you thinking in a new way, they'll definitely want to hear it.
3. 'Are you into true crime? I need some documentary and podcast recs…'
Scorpios tend to be clever, curious and drawn to the darker mysteries of the world, which is why many of them are big fans of things like horror and true crime. If you're also a fan of these genres, go out on a limb and ask your Scorpio crush if they have any faves for you to check out. You just might get them to open up to you about one of their passions, and once you dig in yourself, you'll have a shared interest to discuss at length.

4. 'What does your schedule look like? If you're not too busy, we should catch up this week.'
Once you've gotten closer to a Scorpio, they'll want you to be open and honest with them, rather than being wishy-washy about what you want. Let them know you're interested in spending time with them, and that you'd love to be a part of their busy schedule. Even if they can't accept at first, this at least puts you on their radar and lets them know you mean business, so you don't have to keep them guessing.
5. 'You seemed a little off today. Are you okay? Always here for you to vent when you're ready—and my lips are sealed.'
Scorpio is a water sign, known for emotionality, moodiness and seclusion. They may seem to have more bad days than most signs, and because they tend to keep their feelings to themselves, they don't often work through them properly. It can take a long time to get through to them and have them become vulnerable with you, but if you show that you're open to hearing them out, you may quickly find the two of you growing closer. Loyalty is also incredibly important to Scorpio, so it'll mean a lot to them if you demonstrate that your lips are sealed and their secrets are safe with you.

6. 'Can I tell you something I've never told anyone else?'
The importance of openness and honesty goes both ways with Scorpio, so if you want to earn their trust, it can be helpful to demonstrate that you trust them with your own secrets. When they're close to someone, they'll want to know your true opinions and how you really feel. Let them into your life, and you may find that soon, they'll be reciprocating the favor.
7. 'You know, I'm really in the mood to be asked out on a date.'
When Scorpio is interested in someone, they're known for being bold, or even aggressive, in pursuing them. If you're pretty sure they might feel about you the way you do about them, match that energy and put yourself out there. If things go well, you'll have a date lined up—but even if they don't, at least you'll know what your crush thinks about you.
