To connect with a crush, humor is almost always a great idea. Laughter can reduce her stress, boost her mood, and ultimately, bring you two closer together. With texting, you can actually think through what you want to say, plus, you get to brighten her day from afar. Down below, we’ve pulled together a list of text ideas that will cause your crush to LOL -- literally!

1

Pickup lines

Download Article

  1. Text her a silly pickup line. To amuse your crush, an ultra-cheesy, flirtatious line can definitely do the trick. No one expects to unlock a device and have a humorous, complimentary message waiting, which is exactly what makes these texts so funny! Take a moment to consider whether your text’s recipient will feel comfortable with your corny, unserious advances. Next, consider using one of the examples below.[1]

    • “Are you a loan? ‘Cause you’ve got my interest. 😇💵”
    • “What’s your Instagram? My parents said I should follow my dreams. 😴 ”
    • “Do you believe in love at first sight? Because I can walk by again. 😻😽”

Dad jokes

Download Article

  1. Send along a simple, dad-approved joke. Dad jokes are known for their goofiness and predictability. Whether it’s because they’re actually funny, or because they’re so far from it, these jokes are a comedic staple. They’re also super easy to deliver via text! Try sending your crush one of these options below.

    • “What do you call a factory that makes okay products? A satisfactory. 🏭”
    • “I don’t trust stairs. They’re always up to something. 😂😂”
    • “I asked my dog to solve two minus two. He didn’t say anything. 🐶”

3

Randomness

Download Article

  1. Text a random fact or detail of your day to make a girl giggle. Humor is all about taking people by surprise in a fun, comfortable way! If your crush looks at her phone and finds a completely random message from you, this could definitely be worthy of a laugh.[2]

    • Try sending a surprising fact without context, like, “Did you know that cows have regional accents? 🐄”
    • Or, go with this hilarious piece of trivia, “You know, in Switzerland it’s illegal to own just one guinea pig. 🐹”
    • Send over a funny comment without warning, like, “I wonder how Ariel’s hair was always dry immediately after she came out of the ocean in The Little Mermaid. 🤔”

Song or movie lines

Download Article

  1. Text her song lyrics or movie quotes that sound like they could be real messages. Pick something that both of you have heard or seen. At first, she’ll probably be a bit confused. But when she realizes you’ve played a little prank, she’ll be surprised and hopefully amused! She may even join in, responding to your message with the next lyric or quote.

    • Start a faux-dramatic convo with some well-known Adele lyrics, “Hello. It’s me. I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet.”
    • If she’s a Napoleon Dynamite fan, you could quote the movie’s hero by responding with, “Whatever I feel like I wanna do, gosh!” when they ask what you’re doing on a given day.
    • And of course, Carly Rae Jepson lyrics make for a classic text prank. Start with, simply, “Hey, I just met you. And this is crazy…” Wait for her to respond before you finish the super famous chorus!

5

Callbacks

Download Article

  1. Reference a topic or joke from earlier in the conversation. This strategy, referred to as a callback, will take a little attention to detail and strategic thinking. By suddenly bringing back an old topic, you’ll surprise your crush and bond over the shared experience. Simply put, a callback can be cause for serious, side-splitting laughter.

    • If your conversation has referenced a movie/TV show protagonist, say something like, “I bet [character’s name] wouldn’t have this problem.” This would work well after mentioning a small challenge in your day, like stepping in gum.
    • If she mentions a musician she adores, you could reference the artist jokingly later on like this, “I’m pretty good at basketball. In fact, I’m sort of like the [musician’s name] of basketball.”

Inside jokes

Download Article

  1. Reference an inside joke to make your crush laugh. Remember that time the two of you absolutely lost it over something silly? You can use this special, outside information to be funny in your current conversation. Consider whether or not you and your texting partner have ongoing inside jokes that you could reference through text.

    • If not, reflect on a moment that the two of you laughed your heads off together. This could be the start of an inside joke!
    • Choose a detail of that experience and find a way to reference it in conversation. If she’s seen you take a comical trip down the stairs, for instance, try sending a photo of some steps in front of you. Include a message like, “Oh no, it’s my nemesis! The stairs!”

7

Exaggerations

Download Article

  1. Send a text that exaggerates your situation or the person your texting’s situation. Your silly overstatement will come as a surprise, and hopefully, draw out a laugh from your crush. So, say she comments on the cold weather. You could say, “I know. I just saw the abominable snowman walking down 4th street, and he was shivering!” Obviously this is untrue, but the image is funny![3]

    • Or, say she’s tired and messages that she wants to go home and sleep. You could follow up with, “Totally. I’m pretty sure the bags under my eyes could be seen from space today.”

Personal anecdotes

Download Article

  1. Draw inspiration from your goofy life experiences. Sticking to your real life can add extra depth to the best jokes. Brainstorm some of your stories that have gotten big laughs in the past. [4]

    • Like the previous step describes, you could even try exaggerating details throughout your story to make for a hilariously dramatic retelling of a past event.
    • If you’re having trouble deciding what stories are worth telling, reflect on some of your first-time experiences or moments that’ve had surprising challenges.
    • This could be anything from your first day at work to your failed attempts to learn Russian.

9

Funny news

Download Article

  1. Send over an outlandish, hilarious news headline to make her laugh out loud. Sure, most of the news you’ll see during a given week is serious and decidedly unfunny, but that’s not always the case! Search “funny news headlines” and choose one that makes you laugh.

    • Crack her up with snapshots of silly headlines, like, “Cows lose their jobs as milk prices continue to drop.”
  2. Advertisem*nt

Impressions

Download Article

  1. Record and send your best impression. Especially to people who know you well, this could be an absolute crackup. Whether you’ve got a super realistic impression in your repertoire or one that’s so bad it’s funny, this may get a big laugh from your crush. You could even try addressing her personally in your chosen famous voice.

    • Send a message saying, “Hello, have a good day!” in Scooby’s voice from Scooby Doo.
    • Send a message in the voice of Lilo and Stich’s Stich saying, “Hope you crush it at work today!”

11

TikToks and tweets

Download Article

  1. Send a link to a TikTok or tweet that made you laugh out loud. For people close to you, it’s a pretty safe bet that what makes you laugh could make them laugh, too. Plus, by going with a viral video or tweet, you’re certain to have a well-endorsed, comedic hit on your hands. As a bonus, choose something that you know will really suit the person you’re sending the link to.[5]

    • If you know your crush likes slapstick humor, choose a funny video of someone slipping on ice.
    • If she’s completely obsessed with cats, select a silly video of a kitten stealing its owner’s food.
    • Remember, messages that contain positive comments help to communicate effectively.[6]
    • Let them convey enthusiasm and warmth.[7]
    • Keep them lighthearted and fun.[8]
