Right now, we’re all relying on Tinder, texting, and FaceTime to connect with our crushes. Thumbs are atrophying and voices are hoarse, but that’s not going to stop us from trying to create a spark or keep the flame burning.
When keeping a situationship grooving, you can expect lulls in the convo, awkward pauses, or just generally not knowing exactly what to say as your mind spirals. Is it normal to text them every second of your new daily schedule? What did they mean when they said “yup?” In order to help combat all the (second) guessing and confusion, why not start a game of “Would You Rather?” It may sound like a cop out (it’s not, everyone loves this game and so should you), but these simple questions can get the conversation flowing and help you get to know someone better. Start with this exhaustive list of chin-scratchers.
