Greenberg confirms what many of us already know: More than likely, your crush is into you if they carry on the conversation and respond without too much of a lag time. (But if you're already there, here's how to kick the conversation up a notch.)While we're arguably more in control of and confident about our sexuality than ever, there's still so much we don't know about female arousal.So this month, we're exploring everything you want and need to know about how women get turned on now.First off, you need to suss out whether or not your crush is at least mildly interested in you before you blow up their phone."You know your crush is receptive to flirting if he or she is responsive," says Barbara Greenberg Ph D, a clinical psychologist who specializes in family and relationship issues.

But you're also slyly suggesting that you're proud to be involved with — or almost involved with — the cutie in question.
"Why it works: It might go without saying, but be sure to send this one along with a perfectly curated selfie.
For those of you trying to steer a platonic friendship in a more flirtatious direction, this works best dropped into the middle of a regular conversation.
This way, you can start establishing a stronger emotional connection and find out all the important things you have in common."Just worked out, ready to hit the showers!
