Should I text him first? This will not sound too clingy na!! You are not sure if has the same feelings for you or not. You just know that he makes your heart flutter and forget all that you just dream to say to him. If you feel your mouth to be parched and choked when he is around you, texting can come to your rescue. Here are 10 things to remember on how to start texting your crush.
