Now, on the flip side, we’ve got torpe—it’s like that moment when you accidentally trip on your own shoelace while trying to make an entrance. Yep, torpe is all about those awkwardly adorable vibes when you’re crushing so hard, you forget how to adult around your crush. 

We know that navigating the world of crushes can be as confusing as deciding which filter to use on your latest Instagram post. So, let’s dive into the ultimate guide on how to tell if your crush has rizz or if they’re totally torpe when it comes to matters of the heart.

Let’s say you’re at a party and your crush walks in. What would they do?

Rizz: If they effortlessly glide through the crowd, engaging everyone in conversation and leaving a trail of giggles in their wake, girl, you’ve got yourself a dose of rizz right there! 

Torpe: If your crush stumbles over their words, forgets how to make eye contact, and spills their drink, it might be a classic torpe move. But hey, we’ve all been there—even the hottest of hot can freeze up when faced with their crush.

The Social Media Swagger

Ah, social media—the virtual playground where rizz and torpe tendencies shine through. 

Rizz: If your crush’s online presence is filled with witty captions, charming selfies, and effortlessly cool stories, they’re giving off some major rizz vibes. 

Torpe: If their posts consist of blurry cat photos and cryptic memes that even the most advanced memeologist couldn’t decipher, well, let’s just say they might be leaning towards the torpe end of the spectrum.

The Texting Tango


Now, let’s talk about the digital dance known as texting. 

Rizz: If your crush is a master of timely replies, flirty emojis, and clever wordplay, congratulations, you’ve got a rizz maestro on your hands! 

Torpe: If their responses are one-word wonders or take longer to arrive than your online store packages, it might be a sign that they’re caught in the torpe web. Remember, torpe texting can happen to the best of us, especially when nerves get in the way.

The Wingman Approval

Your BFFs are the ultimate judges of character, right? 

Rizz: If your friends can’t stop raving about how your crush oozes charm, has impeccable style, and could give lessons on how to work a room, then you have scored some major rizz points. 

Torpe: On the other hand, if your pals have that “what’s going on?” look whenever your crush is around, it could be a sign that torpe vibes are lurking nearby. But hey, who needs approval when your heart’s doing the talking?

The Grand Gesture Gambit

We’ve all seen it in movies—the grand gesture that leaves you weak in the knees. 

Rizz: If your crush has a knack for swoon-worthy surprises, heart-fluttering compliments, and making you feel like you’re the star of your own rom-com, they’re definitely channeling their inner rizz. 

Torpe: If their attempts at romance involve accidentally spilling ketchup on their shirt while trying to impress you with their burger-eating skills, don’t be too quick to label them as torpe. Sometimes, the most endearing moments come from genuine efforts, mishaps and all.
