Ready to shoot your shot?

Originally Published: 

If you're single with a taste for romance, you've probably dreamed up the perfect Valentine's Day — complete with a smashing red outfit, delicious food, the perfect soundtrack, and the sex position you'd like your Valentine's Day evening to end in. One potential hiccup could be that you don't have anyone lined up to help you live out this V-Day fantasy. However, if you do have a hottie in mind, you're as good as gold — as long as you send them the right text. If you're in need of flirty texts to send your crush on Valentine's Day this year, then I've got some suggestions that will get the job done.

As Fran Greene, licensed clinical social worker and author of The Secret Rules of Flirting, previously told Elite Daily, flirty texts are the perfect low-pressure way to shoot your shot. "Texting allows you to craft your best flirt without distractions and without the anticipation of seeing an instantaneous reaction," she explained. "You can add, delete, and even get a friend's opinion if you need another set of eyes — all before you hit send."

Here's a little inspo for the digital candy-gram you can send your crush on Valentine's Day.

  • “It’s Feb. 14 and I might as well tell you: I think you’re cute.”
  • “Remember back in high school when you could pay $1 to have a flower delivered to your crush’s desk? I wish I had sent you one.”
  • "I know it's been awhile since we talked, but I’ve been thinking about you lately.”
  • "So, word on the street is that you have a secret admirer... any guesses who it might be? 💌"
  • "Valentine's Day is coming up and I was wondering if you had any plans."
  • "You know, I just can't shake this feeling we're meant to be together."
  • "Roses are red, violets are blue, and I just wanted to let you know, I kinda have a crush on you."
  • “Wait, you’re single? That’s interesting...”
  • “Since neither of us have Valentine’s Day plans, what do you think about grabbing a slice? It’s the best night for people-watching.”
  • “I’m not just saying this because it’s Feb. 14, but you’re pretty great.”

Well, what are you waiting for? There's a V-Day playlist to perfect, outfits to coordinate, date ideas to vet, and food you should decide on eating. Oh, and proceed to send these bad boys to your crush, with any combination of smiley or winky faces, gem-colored hearts, angel emojis, or devil emojis for that extra festive touch.
