1. Using games like "MASH" to determine whether you would indeed marry them.

5. Writing your crush elaborate letters.

And trying to trick "fate" by trying again immediately after with a different flower, if you didn't get the result you wanted.

11. Frantically forwarding chain messages in the hopes it would mean your crush would ask you out.
