Waiting for a crush to ask you out can be agonising, which might explain why many women on Twitter took a challenge to ask their crushes out on Valentine’s Day. Some of the results were hilarious, others ended on a happy note and some awkwardly.
It started when British relationship blogger Oloni urged women on Twitter to make the first move and ask their crushes out on a date as a Valentine’s Day Challenge, something she did even last year. She also asked women to post a screenshot of the conversation online to let others know how it went.
Ladies..who’s ready for the Valentine’s Day challenge this year?
Message your crush “I’ve had a crush on you for some time. Would you like to go on a date with me this Valentine’s Day?”
Tweet me a screen shot of their response to this thread. GO!💕

Many on Twitter messaged their crushes asking them out on a date and put up the screenshots. While some of the messages resulted in a date, for others it was a little embarrassing. Some couples who are already together also took the challenge with amusing results.
Here are some of the reactions that got many talking online.

The blogger had explained last year, why she started the Twitter trend.
“I came up with the idea [for the challenge] by thinking of ways I could push women to be more confident within themselves,” Oloni said. With the challenge, she said she was trying to break the stereotype that girls shouldn’t make the first move.
