We always get awkward around our crushes or prospective boyfriends. We don’t know what to say, what to do - but still want to talk and do something to get their attention! The struggle is way too real. Here are 7 ways you can make the first move without feeling too awkward!
1. Strike a conversation
State something obvious or talk about something you were both part of. For example if it’s a colleague you are crushing on, just start a conversation by saying ‘X is hilarious, still can’t get over that thing he did!’ or ‘It’s really a slow day’. Just something you can both relate to and have in common.
2. Compliment him
Who doesn’t love compliments. Compliment him and be sincere - trust us, honesty will take you a long way.

5. Cues via body language
Give little cues to him. Just touch his arm gently while talking to him. You don’t need to be all out there, but a little friendly touching never hurt.
6. Meet up!
Try asking him/her what they are doing after work or on the weekend - and try to meet up even if it’s in a group. This way he could see your fun side.

Social media can definitely come to your rescue in this situation. See the kind of stuff he likes or follows on FB or Instagram. This just gives you a whole lot of new things to talk about.
