If there’s one thing we can all relate to, it’s having a major crush on someone! You feel those nervous butterflies, you get tongue tied, and your palms sweat at the mere mention of their name. We want you to know that you’re NOT alone! We’ve all had those feelings and those awkward moments. But what’s the most important part of interacting with your crush? To be yourself, of course!

We checked in with some of our fave MTV stars to find out how to maintain your cool around your crush. They shared their strategies on how to talk to that special someone when you’re nervous, and they showed us the importance of confidence and authenticity. Whose advice resonated with you the most?
