My crush and I were texting and we were joking about going on a date…but I’m not sure if we were joking or not. How do I tell?
Texting can be tricky since you can’t really tell what tone
the other person is trying to use. If your crush brought up going on a date in
a joking way, he probably deep down does want to go on a date but doesn’t know
how to just come out and ask you.
Covering things up with jokes and humor is a way to keep things light-hearted and it may also be your crush's way of protecting himself if you weren’t actually interested in dating. Joking around can be fun and flirty, but it also creates confusion.
If you really want to know what this guy is thinking, be up
front about it. Muster up all of your confidence and just ask him, “Were you
actually serious when you mentioned going on a date? It could be fun!” Chances
are he’s into you and will be happy that you took initiative so he didn’t have
If not, no biggie! He may not be ready to date or may just like you as a friend. Either way, this doesn’t mean you can’t keep texting.
