15 Ways To Actually Start A Texting Conversation With Someone

It is no secret that many of us have a little bit of trouble when it comes to the topic of texting crushes. Or, to be more exact, we all have a little bit of trouble when it comes to actually starting a texting conversation with our crush. Like, think about it–it can be moderately challenging, but ultimately doable, to respond to a text your crush has sent you, as all you really need to do in that situation is keep the conversation going. What’s hard, though, is starting it yourself. You know that a simple “hi” probably won’t suffice, but you also don’t want to get too deep into the minutiae of your own life, which either tends to be scary or boring.

The solution? Just text ’em something like this:


I mean, don’t. But you could, you know?

If I am going to be totally honest here, a texting intro like this probably works just fine as an honest-to-god texting tutorial. If a response is all that you are after, it is easier to get one from a text that says something like “I’m the laughing gnome and you can’t catch me!” or is simply a context-free picture of Shrek’s face, even if that response is just “What?” or “?????”. So, check out these totally foolproof (probably) ways to start a texting conversation with someone with this meme:

1. I mean. Who wouldn’t respond to this?



2. I relate to this…so much:


3. …Cool:



4. I mean, I’d respond. Wouldn’t you?

5. Okay!



6. Nice:

8. Classic:
