In the age of flirting over the internet, sending GIFs and memes are basically the equivalent of love poems. If you don't have funny GIFs to text your crush, you need to get some pronto. GIFs step in when you don't have the words to do your feelings justice. They're also a unique way to express something that makes you stand out from the crowd — and that's why you need to make sure that your GIFs are not only funny, but also unique. Because let's be real: Just like it's a big turn-off to hear the same sentiment expressed a million and a half times, it's also boring to keep recycling the same content.
When you're looking for some funny GIFs to send your crush, three hard and fast rules apply: babies, puppies, and Mr. Bean. All make amazing GIF content, and all are basically certified to put a smile on your crush's face. But if you want to branch out from the basics, I've composed a list that includes the very most primo, funny, and adorable GIF content for every occasion. Because when you don't know what to say, there's a GIF that can do all the talking for you.
