How to Flirt with a Guy Over Text
- Don’t Wait for Him to Send the First Message
There is no reason for you to wait around for your crush to send you a text if you really like him and want to have a conversation. Stop worrying about coming across as needy. A harmless little text is not going to make you look desperate. Flirting is a two-way street that someone has to initiate. If he really is your crush then there is no reason why you should shy away from being the first one to send a message.
- Use a Fun Opening Line; Avoid the Dull Greeting
You aren’t leaving much of an opportunity for your crush to add to the conversation if you just send a boring “hi” text with a smiley face. Instead, seize the opportunity to make a good first impression by sending a thoughtful first message to him. The best part about using a good opening line is that you will already have the conversation rolling. The idea is to reach out with a specific observation or a thoughtful question.
- Use Well-Placed GIFs and Emojis
A well-timed emoji or GIF can add excitement to the conversation. Make use of these tools to help you express yourself and show your playful, witty side when words just don’t cut it.
- Subtly Play with His Imagination
The best part about flirting with guys over text is that you can play with their imaginations. Try sending an ambiguous message that looks totally innocent at face value. The idea is to put just enough bait out there to get his dirty little mind stimulated.
- Keep Your Cool When Handling Naughty Replies
If you tried tip number 4 then be fully prepared to deal with dirty responses without sounding loose because that can temporarily ruin your image. There is a fine line between being flirty and dirty; respect it. When he goes dirty, you go innocent.
- Make Him Think About Meeting You
Use suggestive language that will lead him to think about meeting you in person. Don’t be too direct and say, “I want to meet you so that I know you’re not a catfish.” Instead, use a less in-your-face, open-ended suggestion like thanks for picking up my FaceTime. We should try to see each other in person sometime.
- Space Out Your Messages So That Your Conversation Lasts Longer
The trick to maintaining the excitement when you’re texting your crush is to span out your messages over a couple of hours, or days even. Don’t use all of your tricks to flirt with him right away. If he takes five or ten minutes to reply, then you should do the same. The idea is to make sure that things don’t happen too fast so that your flirty conversation of five to ten messages can span over a couple of hours. This will heighten the excitement and give him the feeling that chatting with you can never get boring.
- Wait for His Reply Before Sending Another Text
One of the biggest mistakes a girl can make while flirting with her crush is to jump the gun and send a second message before he replies to her previous one. Never hurry. Calmly wait for his response even if it takes hours.
- Compliment Him Frequently
You will have a guy hooked to talking with you if you continuously compliment him. It doesn’t take a lot of effort to boost the male ego. Just stick to the classic ego-boosting compliments that will attract your crush like a magnet.
