If you are asking the internet how to impress your crush, chances are you want to do something GRAND. Or, this is probably the first time you are crushing really bad on someone, and you have no clue how to go about it. Or is it something else?
Because I don’t want to give you a generic answer and get away with it, really. The problem with generic answers is that they often end up doing no good to anyone else.
Having said that, I am going to answer this age-old question based on the two situations I have mentioned above – either you have got it bad for the first time in your life, or you are planning to do something grand.
Plus, it is also my area of expertise, considering I have been on over a hundred dates before I became a relationship writer with five years of experience under my belt!
Now that I have established my situation and the premises on which I am going to set my blog let’s get started. (It’s getting late, and what if someone randomly ends up impressing your crush instead?)
How To Impress Your Crush?
So, how to impress your crush? What’s that one big Grand gesture that you can do to impress your crush?
And embarrassing your crush publicly is not the solution – jeez, guys, calm down; you are not getting married; you guys are just getting started! So, forget about rose petals, flowery decorations, and fluffy words.
Instead, here’s what you can do to impress your crush and make it grand at the same time!
1. Help, Support, Motivate!
Sometimes, all you need to do is be there for someone – you don’t have to buy them the most expensive thing out there. You just need to be there by them on difficult days – and that’s grand even when others tell you it’s not enough.
Trust me on this one! If you really, really, really want to impress someone, you need to be there for them on all days – come rain, hell, or storm, they should know they can count on you.
At the end of the day, what are you even doing if you are not supporting them through thick and thin? It starts casually, sure, but what about the bad days – you can’t just disappear on their bad days!
2. Friend Without Benefits:
I am just going to add up to the point mentioned above. You have to understand that you cannot seek a friendship with your crush because there are some ‘benefits’ associated with the same.
Of course, you have friends – do these friendships have anything at all to do with benefits, or are you guys friends irrespective of any benefits? We all make friends irrespective of any benefits, and it’s fine if you are crushing on someone. Try to become their friend first, and no, not because there is something subtly sexual about it.
Don’t let your crush know from the very beginning that you are crushing on them. Instead, try to win their trust, become their friend, and let it happen organically. It is so much easier to impress them with your friendship than anything else.
That way, you can do anything GRAND, like a surprise birthday party, which is not difficult to do.
If you are not their friend, how will you even do anything grand for them in the first place? You can’t – it’s practically impossible. The best solution you have is to be their friend, win their trust, and find out what is grand for them – and then one day, just wing it!
3. Pop Culture Is Your Only Solution:🎸
Now, don’t underestimate the power of popular culture – I’ll tell you why!
You need something to bond with, right? If there are no commonalities, then what are you guys even going to talk about? You can’t keep crushing on someone just because they are pretty or handsome. You can impress them when you find out about their likes or dislikes, and the best way to go about it is to start with pop culture.
So, they are a Marvel fan – you just need to organize a Marvel night and invite a few friends over. Get everything they like – from their favorite Marvel films to their favorite snacks, get hold of everything.
And this is also why you need to be friends with them before you start dating them. This is because, if you are not friends with each other, how can you invite them over in the first place? Or how will you actually do something grand for them if you don’t know what their interests, likes, dislikes, etc., are?
4. Write Them A Love Letter:💌
Now, this is a tale as old as time – you write them a love letter! Love letters are perhaps the most romantic thing you can send your crush. Of course, you don’t have to make it cringy, awkward, or even embarrassing.
You can just keep it short, sweet, and simple. Plus, if you have a knack for writing, then even better. Maybe come with a small poem for your crush? You can even leave it on their desk and wait for them to be surprised.
Of course, if you have not established a familiar relationship with your crush, then please don’t send them love letters because that’s not really cool. I mean, I wouldn’t enjoy receiving love letters from someone I don’t know – yes, you are crushing on me. But I didn’t even know you existed.
In that case, it is extremely creepy to receive letters from strangers. That is precisely why you should send cute love notes once you have established some familiarity with your crush.
And It’s A Wrap!
Now, you have a fair idea about how to impress your crush. The trick is to become their friend, but don’t even step into the friend zone. Because once you are in the friend zone, it is very difficult to come out of it. So, just be careful when you are treating the friend-to-date boundaries.
And do let us know how it works out for you – all the best!
