Thanks to whoever invented cell phones and the 'means' of texting through it! Texting is a good way to communicate with someone you know or do not know. Reason - majority of people just love texting and eagerly wait for that beep from their cell phone! Moreover, a cell phone is one device people always carry around with them, so you don't have to worry about the person not seeing your message. The situation now is that you have a crush on someone, in your office or may be in your college, school or locality, and want to get friendly with him or her.
Conversing with someone you do not know well enough is not difficult at all, and you just need to be a little careful. After all, you don't want to spoil the whole affair, and end everything even before you become friends with that person. Thus, your texts should convey light flirting and more friendliness. There are plenty of means available and texting is a way that has the power to make things work! You can flirt over text, convey anything important and blah blah.
If you are finding it difficult to start a conversation, do not worry, it is not some impossible task. If you are not a texting expert, you have to keep in mind some important dos and don'ts, that have been thoroughly covered in the coming paragraphs.
Here, I assume, you have your crush's cell phone number and the other person may or may not have your number (this doesn't matter, the point is 'you' starting a conversation). The next obvious step you want to take is initiating the 'talk over text'; read further to know how you should do it.
Best Ways of Starting a Conversation With Your Crush
There are plenty of ways through which you can start a conversation over text. But wait, do not pick up your phone in a hurry and type whatever comes to your mind. Your message should be such that your crush should be compelled to text you back. And then you should take the best effort to keep the conversation going for long (smiling, eh?). I have compiled below some good ways to start the conversation (and keeping it going!).
Use Birthdays to Break the Ice
You need not be told this - you cannot text anyone out of the blue. Just imagine, what would you think when you get a text from a person you have seen in your neighborhood, but have never interacted with? Thus it would be a lot better if you choose the occasion or day with care.
To start a conversation with anyone, especially the person you like, over text you should wait for the right opportunity. There is no best way to start a conversation with someone than that person's birthday. Send a beautiful and caring birthday message and wait for the reply. Take a look at the sample conversation.

Through Compliments
Girls love compliments and boys also love compliments, well all of us love being complimented! You like that person, so you definitely come up with some compliments for that person. This can be a great way to start a texting conversation. Think! What compliment would work for your crush. For example, if you are a boy and your crush is a serious and academic type, compliment her about her academic achievements. If she is a chirpy girl obsessed with her looks, give her compliments about her looks. Same goes for guys too. The following samples will help you better.

A: Hiii. this is A. you looked fundoo today! I loved your new tattoo...its osm
B: Thnx for the compliment A!
A: Well frm whr did u gt it done?

Tips & Traps
  1. Never show you are desperate for communication. You will be rejected outright!
  2. Keep emoticons to a minimum for the first few texts. This is because, use of too many smileys conveys over interest to the other person.
  3. As a first text, do not send over the top compliments or messages that convey flirting. You will be looked down upon as a 'despo'.
  4. If your crush replies, ask something else, and keep the conversation going. End the conversation with a sweet message like great chatting with you, have a nice week, etc.
  5. You can send some interesting messages to your crush over the next few days and if you get some idea that he or she is interested you can ask them out for a personal meeting.
These were some of the best ways to start a conversation with the person who interests you. As you must have noticed that everything depends on the situation, keep yourself updated about the happenings in your crush's life and then plan your text accordingly. But also remember you have to take a step forward too. Texting is just a way to begin the conversation and you would only come to know the person better when you meet him or her in person. Till then, all the best and happy texting!
