19I just saw ___ and it reminded me of you!
This is a natural way to start a conversation that isn’t cheesy or weird. It’s also a good way to start an inside joke, or start talking about some mutual interests. This can be something that you guys continue to talk about, for instance, a movie you just watched.

The mention of school is casual, while the “hi cutie” kicks things up a notch. It’s an easy way to exploit your classroom connection while expanding your relationship to outside of school.
24When can I see you again?
This puts the ball in his court while giving off strong vibes that you like him. Since you’re saying “can” you’re making it clear that you enjoy hanging out with him. It’s as close as you can get to asking him out without making it explicit.
25I miss you
Let him know you’re thinking about him with this simple gesture. Hopefully, he’ll reply that he’s missing you too! Even if he doesn’t, it lets him know that he’s important to you and you want to be around him.
