Creative Ways to Tell Your Crush You Like Them

You're ready to tell your crush how you feel, huh? We're here for you.

Because we know how agonizing it is to figure out how you're going to tell them, we figured we'd offer up some suggestions.

Scroll below for seven creative ways to tell your crush you like them!

Make Them a Playlist

Whether you send them a mix of love songs or literally spell out that you like them with song titles, sending your crush a playlist is totally thoughtful and clever. Heck, we've even done that work for you by making a playlist you can send them now.


Write Them a Poem

If you really want to show off your creative side, write your crush a little poem. It doesn't have to be elaborate, but it should get the point across. You don't want them to be left confused after reading your heartfelt thoughts.

Send a Personalized Snapchat Story

Telling your crush you like them over social media is a whole lot easier than doing it face to face. Instead of sending them a simple text or casual snap, go all out with a personalized Snapchat message. Get crafty with your approach. You can come up with a short story or send them a string of snaps. The choice is yours! Just make sure you send it to only them and don't post it to your actual story. That would be bad news.


Say It With Food

Not sure what to say? Use food. Send them pizza or a giant cookie that legibly spells out that you have feelings for them and want them to know. The key is to make sure you're around when they get the food so you can see their reaction. You can do it at school, but that's a little risky. Delivering it to their house on your own might be the way to go, unless you've never been to their home before. That'd be creepy to just pop up unannounced.

Send Them on a Scavenger Hunt

This example is so extra, but if you really, really can't contain your feelings for them anymore, it's the way to go. Create a personalized scavenger hunt where finding you is the ultimate goal. You definitely should enlist the help of your friends to make sure this extravagant plan goes off without a hitch.


Create a Meme

Everyone loves a good meme. And if your crush is known for being pretty hilarious, the way to their heart may very well be a meme. Instead of just sending them one, try to create your own. Don't be afraid to ask for help from your friends. And if you really can't come up with anything good, feel free to send them one that already exists.


Just Tell Them

This approach isn't exactly creative, but it is effective. If you really want to know how your crush feels about you, the best thing you can do is straight-up tell them you have feelings for them. You'll get your answer then and there. It might not be what you want to hear, but at least it's the truth.
