Is it correct to use the phrasal verb "speed up" in this sentence:
"Telling me that she was texting the other guy on the phone was just a creative way to speed up my confession (that I love her)".

I want to say that she made me confess my love to her earlier than I intended to, made things happen quicker than they were destined.
Which other verbs can I use? "to rush" for example?

    The original phrasing sounds natural and is understandable. "To rush my confession" would be suitable.

    You could say "to nudge/push or encourage," though obviously the meaning is slightly different.
