Heya playa, are you on Snapchat? Is your crush on Snapchat? Do you want to know how to talk to your crush on Snapchat? Well I’m going to give you a few step by step strategies on how to use Snapchat the right way when talking to your crush. So make sure to watch the entire video to see how each and every single strategy plays into the other to help you get closer to your crush on Snapchat.
Snapchat is one of the biggest apps out there being used by teens just like yourself, and the same goes with Facebook and Instagram, Snapchat is going to be premiere platform that you use to communicate with your friends and your crush. One of the first challenges that you may run into is getting your crush to add you back on Snapchat.
Sometimes people have private profiles and it’s hard to connect with them. I’m going to say though that the easiest way to get someone to add you back on Snapchat is to simply go up to them and ask them “Hey, are you on Snapchat? What’s your username?”.
Most of the time they’ll tell you, but if your crush is someone that you rarely talk to or never talk to, the best thing is to follow them and to check out their stories. At first I didn’t think stories were a big deal but they actually are. You can find out what your crush is doing every single day so you can find an opening to talk to them. Chances are they’re posting pictures and videos of them doing things with friends, hanging out at home or just being silly which is a great way for you to figure out where to insert yourself into the conversation.
The one piece of advice that I share with everyone when it comes to all types of social media is to look at what your crush is posting and to find a way to start a conversation around something they posted or to ask them a question about it. And the beauty of Snapchat is that the amount of content that they’re posting is ten-fold, meaning there are tons of opportunities for you to start talking to them. Once you find the right thing to snap them about, go ahead and do it and start getting that Snapstreak going.
For those of you who don’t know what a Snapstreak is, it’s when you send pictures and videos back and forth to a person every single day and neither of you break the chain. The key here is, the more snaps you send, the more they respond, the longer your streak goes and the closer you get to your crush. What makes Snapchat a different kind of communication tool is that the less polished and simpler your messages look, the better.
You can send pictures and videos of you just sitting there making a silly face and that’s perfectly acceptable content to send to someone. Not to mention, it makes it that much easier to send someone a message with a face that’s like bleh. If you find yourself running out of things to talk about, check out their most recent stories, ask them a question about it, rinse and repeat. All these little steps are meant to help you build a stronger connection with your crush.
Because the last thing you want to do is just confess how you feel or ask them out on the spot. I have videos going a little more in depth on both of those topics but the last thing you want to do is tell someone how you feel and instead show them how you feel. If you’re thinking about adding your crush and then sending them a gigantic paragraph explaining how much you like them, I totally advise against that.
And if you plan on adding them just to say “hey, will you go out with me?”, that’s another thing I’d advise against. The last thing you want to do is put them on the spot, make them feel nervous and force them to give you an answer when they’re not really sure how they feel yet. Another important thing to remember is just like how I’m telling you to watch their stories, create and craft interesting stories for them to check out as well.
Think about it like this, which person do you think would have an easier time talking to their crush on Snapchat? The person who’s posting cool stuff to their stories or the person who just kind of lurks. Think of your stories as a way to paint your own picture. Now I don’t advise lying or making things up just to look cool, be yourself, put yourself out there and add your own personality to the mix.
And as a side note, you can actually view who is watching your stories which means that if you see your crush is watching your stories every single day, you know you’re making progress. Once you’ve build a connection with them, how do you get to the make or break moment? How do you ask them out on Snapchat? Well, here’s my strategy that I would follow. Instead of just saying something like, Instead of just, Instead of just saying something like hey, you want to go out, Instead of just saying something like “hey you want to go out sometime?”.
Get creative and invite them to be part of your world. Record a video as you walk past the park, send them beach emojis, or take a quick picture of a movie poster and ask them, hey I want to check this out, do you want to come with me? Setting up plans that revolve around and event or activity ensures that you’re inviting them to do something that’s going to be fun. Plus you take away the whole mental gymnastics they have to play when they ask themselves, “What why are they asking me? Do they like me?” and then on top of that “Well, when we hang out, what are we going to do?”.
Ideally, I’d recommend asking them out after you’ve built that type of connection with them on Snapchat. And perhaps the best way to ask someone out is always going to be in person.

For those of you who want a boyfriend or girlfriend that you can talk to on Snapchat, and that you probably aren’t going to see in person, having a Snapstreak to go back and forth is a great way to keep a fun lasting relationship going, without having to date in real life technically.
But as cool and engaging as it may seem to talk to your crush on Snapchat, nothing will beat approaching them in person and talking to them there.
