Filed under Opinion

First, your dream date must know that you exist. I recommend ‘unfollowing’ and then ‘refollowing’ them on twitter so that they remember you’re alive. If you feel like your crush still has no idea who you are, feel free to favorite a few of their older tweets to jog their memory (and boost their ego!) If you don’t...
