I can't speak for everyone, but I have a feeling most people didn't have the sexual confidence of a CW show character in high school. (Thanks for the unrealistic expectations, Gossip Girl.) The actors in Riverdale and Legacies aren't played by real teenagers, and for IRL teens, revealing a crush can be scary AF. Luckily, in those formative years following your high school graduation, you may gain the confidence to finally hit up the hottie who sat behind you in biology. Below, some suggestions for DMs to send your high school crush, so if you're not sure how to shoot your shot, then these can get you started.
Sliding into someone's DMs is intimidating, and it can be even more nerve-wracking when that someone has potentially known you since you had braces (or maybe even longer). Unlike people you meet after high school, your teenage crush likely knows how well you did in school, how popular you were, and how uncoordinated you were in gym class. That shared history can be both a blessing and a curse, but if that doesn't faze you, try shooting your crush one of these DMs. If it doesn't go well, it's not like the whole school will find out, right?
