Can’t go outside the house or have cute but super awkward eye contacts with our crush and just randomly (read: deliberately) bump into them every once in a while so instead we do these cringy and desperate things to get them to notice us.
Watching a show that is way out of our genre because since they’ve watched it, so ab toh dekhna padega!
So what if you’re not into knowing about the mentality of criminals? Usne mind hunter dekha hai so you have to watch. Aur ussi TV show ki memes stories pe share karengey ab. Isi bahane conversation initiate toh hogi. Hogi na? ;-;
Faking your playlists and other pop culture preferences just to get them to like you. Dil se bura lagta hai, apne upar pity feel hota hai but kya kare, we are hopeless, awkward and desperate for love. Oh so she likes kpop? mujhse bada kpop fan thodi hai koi is duniya mei.
Now that we have a crush, our stories are not our stories anymore, stories are for our crush. Everything that goes on our feed or story has to potentially impress them or get them to reply to it.
Clickbait 101, baby.
Scrolling through all 623 views to see their cute thumbnail :’) aur agar woh na dikhe toh saare mehnat waste. Parso phir try karengey :-;
Accchaaaaaaa new assignment mila hai aaj office/college/ school me. Let me just go home and do mine so I can help my crush later with his. Or even better I’ll do their assignment first so they can go chill with their friends.
They’ll think I am so nice haina? so helpful <3 <3
*Meanwhile my brain chanting chaep chaep chaep in the bg*
Waiting for their birthday to initiate a conversation because that day is the only day when sliding into DMs isn’t out of context and creepy.
Protip: bday pe wo busy honge aur zyada attention nahi denge. text them the next day! not only you’ll get attention but you can also ask them what they did on their birthday. Werks 10/10!
When they share a three year old meme on their stories that you have seen at least 23 times but you still send HAHAHAH along with 5 laughing emojis in hope they thinks your humor level matches w them and they instantly fall in love with you.
Yep, never happens.
Checking their horoscope when you check yours and mentally preparing notes on when is the exactly right time to approach your them because all that the planets and stars care about is you having a perfect love story, hainaaa.
Flames bhi nikaal lete hai, just in case :))))
Googling how to get our crush to notice us and actually implementing those 13 steps that pop up in wikihow because we are that desperate.
Watching YouTube videos on the same is just next level dedication ok and I know for a fact we have all done it at some point,
Basically we can do everything other than telling them directly about how we actually feel like a normal functioning person and find out if they are interested or not so we can stop embarrassing ourselves:))
