    Your crush will appreciate your willingness to hear him out. “I don’t understand how women’s minds work, so I want to talk to a woman about it,” a guy in his 20s said. It’s preferable to talk in person, but some guys feel more at ease texting. Let your crush choose how he wants to communicate.

  • 2. Smile at your crush and encourage him. Tell him he doesn’t look like himself when he frowns.

    Flatter your crush by telling him he’s emotionally mature, because he can now relate to other people’s pain through his own experience. “This is true.
