So you've been thinking about that special someone.

You know, that one person who makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

You daydream about them.

You like them so much your extremities turn to noodles and your eye kinda twitches when they walk by.

You're just a little *off* around them.

You're just a little *off* around them.

You wanna ask them out, even though you can't quite visualize how it would go...

"Would I break out in hives? WILL MY LEFT ARM START JERKING INVOLUNTARILY?!?!"

...but eventually decide that if you can't stop thinking about them, you just gotta go for it.

'CAUSE LIFE IS ABOUT TAKING RISKS. *hyperventilates a little thinking about it*

So you pick a day to wear your fave outfit. You know, the one that makes you look good.

All of you is #onfleek.

You decide to wait for your crush after class or something. You can feel your heart beating, but like, in your throat.

But you shake off the nerves and go in for the kill.

You ~casually~ approach them like, "Sup?"

Perhaps you get a little choked up at first. But then you make casual conversation.

'Cause you are just ~casually~ talking to a friend (read: the person you dream about at night) on a ~casual~ Tuesday (read: the most important Tuesday of your life) wearing a v ~casual~ attire (read: your most flattering clothes meticulously chosen).

Then you worry you may be talking too much.

Blah blah blah blah blah (crap crap crap, crap!).

So you slow down. And then you worry you're not talking enough.

"How many questions should I ask per minute?"

"How many questions should I ask per minute?"

So at that point, you seize the opportunity, and you're just like, "EH, here's a joke".

*tells what seems like a good joke*

And it works. Your crush actually laughs.

They laugh enough to make you laugh too. *tap-dances internally*

They laugh enough to make you laugh too. *tap-dances internally*

You feel like the emperor of the world.

Thinkstock

YOU ARE UNSTOPPABLE.

So you decide to ride that confidence wave and go ahead and say something along the lines of, "Hey, so, maybe we can get together sometime...?"

Thinkstock

And sure enough, they respond: "SURE."

So you're like, "SAY WHAAAA."
