Feb. 13 means it's that time of year again: When, despite being single, you're overcome with the heart-wrenching spirit of St. Valentine, so you've still got the perfect red sweater or pink bodycon dress on deck (and a makeup look to match!). And while you may be toasting your best friendships tonight for Galentine's Day, alas, no boo has showed up to be your Valentine. Enter Oloni's Valentine's Day challenge on Twitterto upgrade your love life. The annual challenge comes from the brilliant mind of London-based sex and relationships content creator Oloni.
There's more than one way to smoothly slide into your crush's DMs for Valentine's Day. You can keep it wholesome and cute, and ask them to a night at the movies. Or you can turn up the heat, send that risky text, and be Netflix and chilling in no time. Oloni's solution? Keep it straightforward. The challenge is to message your crush, "I've had a crush on you for some time. Would you like to go on a date with me this Valentine's Day?" And yet, as straightforward as the question is, the answers people are getting back are few and far in-between.
