Ah, young love. There’s nothing like it!
Remember the days when you didn’t have Tinder or texting or Facebook or eHarmony or Snapchat or ANYTHING remotely helpful? It was just you, the boy you liked, and a landline phone. That was it. Hope you have his phone number.
It was wildly stressful having a crush in the ’90s. And frankly it still is. Maybe try using some of these ’90s “flirting” tactics in your love life today and see if they help!
1. You seriously considered a full makeover.
If 90s movies taught us anything, it’s that outer beauty is the only thing boys care about. Better make sure that crimped hair is juuuuuust right.
2. You wrote out “Mrs. (crush’s name) to see if it sounded natural.
If it didn’t flow, he wasn’t the one. And if all your notebooks weren’t covered in his name, then you obviously didn’t care about him that much.
3. If you were brave, you passed notes with your crush.
“Do you think this class is boring? Check “no” for no, check “yes” for I’m in love with you let’s get married.”
4. If you were already friends with your crush, you dropped subtle hints.
Okay, so they were about as subtle as a gun. “OMG my friend said this TOTALLY funny thing the other day. She said you and I would make a cute couple HAHAHA isn’t that totally heinous? Unless you’re into it.”
