In a video produced by Cosmopolitan.com, adult men sit on a couch and ask young girls for advice on what to text adult women. Advice ranges from potential buzzkills like “I love you” to “tell her she’s pretty!” or compliment the girl’s hair.

By watching little kids give basic advice, viewers are presumably supposed to learn that everyone is overthinking text messages and that people should just say what they feel whenever they want. Kids just tell it like it is, and maybe more men and women who are dating should embrace their inner child.
