As the wise Nicki Minaj once said, "It go down in the DM." Sure, a double-tap on your crush's latest Instagram post or a like on their Facebook or Twitter updates might put you on that person's radar. But if you really want to make your interest known, sliding into the DMs is the way to go. The question, of course, is what exactly you should say (and no, I don't recommend a simple, "Hey"). If you want to get a convo going, then I've got some flirty questions to DM your crush that will definitely let you get your flirt on.
Here is a just a brief collection of the recent DMs I've received on Insta that wouldn't have worked even if I wasn't in a relationship: "Msg me back pls." "Marry me." "💝💘💕💖😻." And my personal favorite: "I want to get you pregnant." #NOPE. Sending a direct message to your crush might feel like a risk, but it can actually work if that DM is just the right amount of flirty (rather than, you know, something that might make your crush block you for life). Here are a few coy questions to pose to that cutie to get the ball rolling.
