25 Cute Things to Say to Your Crush

My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I like writing articles that help bring people closer together.


There’s something about having a crush on someone that adds a thrill to your day. The adrenaline rush you get when they pass by you while you just cannot muster up the courage to say just exactly how you feel.

Oh, and the anticipation that you feel when you can’t see them, longing for that moment that you can catch a few seconds of that much-needed eye contact with them—that eye contact that lets you know that you really do have a chance with them.

It’s a matter of finding the right timing paired with the perfect things to say, but how do you know what the perfect thing is? Here's how to figure out cute things to say to your crush:

  • Tell the truth: The best thing is to stick with the truth, and avoid telling them something solely because you think they would like to hear it. If they cannot accept you for being yourself and being truthful, chances are, it’s best that you leave them in your fantasy.
  • Be sweet: You won’t get your crush to like you if you are mean to them, even if this is your way of flirting. Be your sweet self and it shouldn’t be a problem! If it is a problem, reread the last tip.
  • Avoid being cheesy: All of those pickup lines that celebrities used toward each other on TV that seemingly worked don’t work. They are cheesy, undesirable, and unoriginal. Just don’t.
  • Be original: Find a way to schmooze your crush in a way that nobody has attempted to schmooze them before. Release your inner schmoozer!
  • Be creative: Sometimes a sweet letter is enough, but sometimes it takes a little more. Just avoid anything that might embarrass your crush, or worse, embarrass yourself!

Now that you know how to think of cute things to say to your crush, what will you say? Surely, you have to say something!

Need some ideas? Here’s a list of cute things to say to your crush:


Compliment Them

Sometimes is just as simple as dropping a compliment. It shows that you notice little things, and it will definitely go noticed!

  1. Your hair is so lustrous and falls perfectly around your beautiful face.
  2. I like your shoes.
  3. You look great in that dress!
  4. I see you got your nails done, they look nice!
  5. Your smile can light up a thousand rooms.
  6. I love your style, you’re so unique.
  7. I saw you dancing at the coffee shop, I love how carefree you dance, like nobody is watching, like nothing else matters in the moment.
  8. You have a very nice voice, I’d love to hear you sing.
  9. I wear mismatched socks, too!
  10. I love the way you style your hair, it’s very becoming!

Ask Them Out

There are times when you hit the moment just perfectly and there presents a small, open window of opportunity to ask your crush out, do it!

  1. I’d love it if you would come with me to see (movie title)!
  2. Would you like to grab a bite to eat for dinner? My treat.
  3. How about we go to the coffee shop Sunday morning and get to know each other.
  4. Do you like to dance? Let’s hit the club!
  5. Would you go with me to watch the sunset? I just want to see the sunset in a more beautiful view.
  6. How about we play a few rounds of mini golf? The night is on me!
  7. I have two concert tickets to see (band name) but nobody to go with, would you like to go with me?
  8. I’d love it if you came for a walk on the beach with me, it’s one of the best places to get to know someone.
  9. Come have dinner, I’m cooking! Bring nothing but an appetite, I’ll take care of the rest.
  10. Oh, you love hockey, too? Why don’t you come to the (team name) game with me this week, I have another ticket!

Pickup Lines

Earlier, I had mentioned pickup lines being a big no-no, but that’s specifically for the cheesy ones. There’s plenty of pickup lines you can use that will win over your crush.

  1. You must be a camera because you make me smile!
  2. Do you bathe in sugar? Because you are very sweet!
  3. You must get a ticket every time you drive because you have fine written all over you!
  4. You are so pretty that I forgot the pickup line I was about to say to you!
  5. I need to call heaven because they lost an angel!

Read More From Pairedlife

When you don’t know someone so well, it’s hard to think of the perfect thing to say to them that won’t scare them away. Play it safe at first to see if or what the boundaries might be. Start by saying something that will make your crush blush!

princess on March 18, 2020:

i told my crush that i liked him and uh. He just stares at me sometimes, and I've only seen him smile twice. He sometimes walks with me in PE and last time during the mile, he watched me run and I was so embarrassed. I honestly don't know what to do anymore. I wish I knew what the hell was going on inside of his head. :)

Juli on February 01, 2020:

my crush stares at me but if i look back he turns away.His friends keep on making jokes each time i pass by.People ask him how he feels and he instantly changes the subject.His friends always call my name but then they say never mind after says "tell her and you will see" people say he likes me but i can't help but feel they are playing with my feelings!A crucial thing i missed out is we used to be super close but once he found out how i truly felt.....EVERYTHING ended!He stutters when he sees me and i can't talk to him! Things need to change I'm hurting inside but i don't know what to say or do.Each time i pluck up enough courage to talk he is either in a bad mood or talking to somebody or someone is there.What do i do?

I like this boy named Dhruevu Patal. But people can him Drew. He is so cute and I can not get the nerve to talk to him. I need some encouraging. Help me please. I am in 6th grade and dont think I should be dating yet. But thats fine. I just want to talk to him and stay in touch. I never said anything to him and I need to think of some thing to say. Can someone tell me what to say. He is on my brothers soccer team so thats how I know him. I want to say " Hey good game, that goal you scored was so awsome. Hey are you going to be to practice on Tuesday. You did not come the last to Tuesdays. And heres a little tip when you are a mid federal you can go in the boxes and score a goal." How does that sound. I see him on Tuesday and Fridays for practice and on Saturdays for games. Tomorrow I am going to talk to him.

tricia on October 17, 2019:

Roland on October 15, 2019:

For all the ladies out there, unless you know he has some feelings for you, don't ask him out. This will, for the most, part end with him saying no. Just give him little signs, flirt a bit. Good luck!

Girl on October 13, 2019:

I have a crush named Brandon...he and I talk mainly over text...a couple weeks ago I told him( over text) that I like him..he said really? oh ok.. Then I told him he didn’t seem to care that I liked him bc he didn’t show that much emotion exact words to that where...” that’s not what I’m saying, I do care, I’m not the person to say eh whatever...I honestly might like you too but kinda wanna talk in person more we try to talk in person at school... it every time we do it gets super awkward....we both freeze and act all!!!

HelperWITHCouples on September 27, 2019:

I need help

WhatShouldIDo? on September 19, 2019:

I have a crush on a guy named Ethan, and I know he doesn't like me. but I'm pretty sure that he knows I like him. What should I do since he's pretty popular and I've never really talked one on one with him.

HendersonS800@ on September 18, 2019:


I’mscaredtoaskherout on September 18, 2019:

I have a crush call besi she is beautiful and we talk a lot but she doesn’t really communicate with me any more and I feel heartbroken she knows how i feel about her. It might sound weird but I’m still in middle school and if I ask her out she’ll probably say know well she like me but she doesn’t talk to me and I wanna just express my feelings with her and be her boy to man to her everything she is the 1 for me

Girl that’s nervous on September 17, 2019:

Kiarra on September 11, 2019:

I really like this guy named Ashton but Iam so scared to tell him. I feel like I have no chance with him and maybe if I ask him out he will say no and then tell all his friends that I asked him out then it will make things awkward between all of us.

Rhys on August 07, 2019:

I would say good day to you, but upon seeing your face i have half a mind to turn heel and head back to bed, in hopes this is but a fever dream. You'll see no Tom Foolery from me, as for Wellington foolery dear sir, well, that is an entirely different matter.

mimiko on July 24, 2019:

Dean.R.P on July 14, 2019:

Hey, so, I just wanted to say, for those of you who aren’t at least in 8th grade. You should probably wait to date. I didn’t, and I honestly regret it, so does all of my friends. So just friendly advice, you shouldn’t.

Sam on June 27, 2019:

I really like this girl named Rylie, she is the most prettiest girl I seen in my days of life, she is one grade above me, but to me that shouldn’t matter, what does matter is that if your ever gonna date is to take care of her with everything you got you. You have to care for her, and love her with almost all your heart, just think of some beautiful and amazing, that’s how I feel about her, I just wanna go up to her and tell her how I feel about her. ❤️

Aubree on June 25, 2019:

Your smile is like a moon, but brighter then anything i could see.

Hopeless romantic 27 on June 17, 2019:

I just want to hold her. I want to fall asleep with her in my arms. I want to watch the sunset from the bed of a truck at the highest point of the tallest mountain. I want to make her laugh and smile. I want to be the one who makes all of her stress go away I want to be able to make her day better just by seeing me because she already does that for me. I want to put my arm around her shoulder as we watch a movie. I want her to fall asleep on my chest so I can just admire how beautiful she is. This what I want, I just don’t know if it’s what she wants.

Stephanie on June 13, 2019:

ersedyeshu on May 28, 2019:

this says not to be cheesy but all it is is cheesy

NUMAI on May 24, 2019:

I think I like him. I want to chat with my crush to get his attention but he's a foreigner. I heard that his age is the same as me and I was so excited about it. He can speak the English and Chinese languages but I can't. I can speak well only my language. My English skill is weak that is too bad to make a conversation with my crush.

Katelynn Hughley on May 23, 2019:

I just don't get it because everything was so good a couple of weeks ago. I don't know if I should continue after him or if I should try and get him to like me or if I should just move on, but I really like him. any thoughts?

xItzVodkaa on January 23, 2019:

So I've been liking this guy.

We've been best friends for an year now, and I like him.

But like three months ago, he started dating my frenemy.

I tried my best to be happy for him but inside I was so depressed.

I've been holding it in ever since until, one day they broke up.

My frenemy who is now my enemy, made up a lame excuse and broke up with him just because she started liking my crush's close friend! He was so depressed...She broke his heart

But now he started moving onto me...I think he likes me back but Im too scared to ask! i was thinking of asking on valentine's day...Someone help me

what should I do? Please tell me what to do......
