Ask anyone that has been smitten before, and they’ll tell you that one of the hardest things in the world is talking to your crush.
You probably just don’t know what to say, but you can’t afford to mess up that first conversation. Thankfully, if you’re looking for what to say to your crush, we have a couple of ideas anyone can use.
What to Say to Your Crush: When He’s Your Classmate
01“You look quite handsome/good today.”
This statement is a perfect conversation starter. It works wonderfully because it strokes his ego, and he is forced to respond, thereby furthering the conversation.
You also get to express your admiration, which shows that you’ve been looking at him for a while.
This is another good conversation starter. The subtle prompt allows him to respond, and if he is not too uptight, he will further the conversation.
A question like this also shows that you care about him, which should help him start to notice you.
03“The weather is unusually nice today.”
This always works as a conversation starter. If you find there’s nothing else you can talk about—especially if you don’t know much about this person’s personal life—this is a useful phrase to start with.
It also leads naturally into other discussion topics like weekend plans.

04“Hey, we should really hang out together sometime.”
This line only works if you are bold enough to deliver it with confidence. It makes clear your intentions and demands a response.
He can agree or refuse the suggestion, but the attempt starts a conversation, and you can always steer the discussion in another direction if needed.
05“Could you spare a minute? I need some help with my classwork.”
If you need actual help with classwork, and he is good enough at that particular classwork to offer help, this is the perfect way to start a conversation.
You can always chat more during the homework help session.
06“Have you done something new with your uniform? It looks good!”
This line praises him and offers up a little ego boost, which guarantees that he will respond to your question.
Once you get him talking, you’ll find more opportunities you can leverage to keep the conversation going.

07“Is it me, or was Mrs. Matthews just the best today?”
The best thing about this line is that it doesn’t sound thirsty enough to turn off someone.
It sounds honest, which means it can be an appropriate conversational ice-breaker no matter who you’re talking to. Mrs. Matthews needs to be worth talking about, though.
