7 songs that'll inspire you to ask out your crush
Let’s face it—it’s pretty tough to feel 100 percent motivated *all* the time. Although you might know exactly what you want, there might also be a thousand little voices in your head trying to talk you out of going for it. Your workout playlist helps you power through long runs, so why not apply this same idea to romance? Listen to these seven songs for the perfect lyrical pep talk before telling your crush how you really feel.
1. “You Belong With Me” by Taylor Swift
Even if there isn’t another cutie on your crush’s radar (we hope that’s the case!), Taylor’s girl-next-door-turned-GF character is an *awesome* example of what you could gain from taking the ultimate leap of relationship faith while staying true to yourself.
2. “Closer” by Tegan and Sara
Your crush isn’t typical—hence why you’re head-over-heels for them. Turn to this tune to remind yourself that they’ll appreciate you for not wanting to treat them like everyone else.
3. "Naturally" by Selena Gomez & The Scene
When you’re with your crush, the things you do and say never feel forced. Keep this in mind as you try to figure out how to ask them out. Jam out, and the words *will* come to you!
4. "There's Nothing Holding Me Back" by Shawn Mendes
Don’t let those nerves weigh you down! Dance around, sing your heart out and remember that positive vibes go a long way when you’re on the verge of putting yourself out there.
5. “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes
If listening to Hunter doesn’t make you want to wrap your arms around your future sweetie, we don’t know what will. This track will take your flirty feels from fantasy to reality in under four minutes.
6. “Unconditionally” by Katy Perry
Katy’s not just belting out these lyrics because they sound good. Let go of whatever’s holding you back and let your crush know that you can—and will—care about them unconditionally.
7. “Mirrors” by Justin Timberlake
Your crush is like your other half. With a little bit of Justin and a whole lot of confidence, your crush could actually be your other half. You’ve got this, girl!
