Great, so you got her number. But what next?
Many guys are unsure of what to say to a girl over text or how to keep a girl interested through texting, but it can be easier than you may think. Here are a few tips on what to talk about when texting a girl you like.
How to start a text conversation with a girl
When texting a girl in the beginning of a relationship, keep the conversation breezy and casual while you’re getting to know each other. While asking her questions about herself is a good start, make it playful and suggest things to do together. If she likes ice cream, offer to take her to a parlour soon. Don’t hold back on the emojis when texting the girl you like either: a smiley face at the end of a message can make a big difference.
Knowing the right time to text your girl
If you really like a girl, it can be tempting to text her all the time, but you run the risk of coming across as a little too keen. Drop her a light-hearted and funny text during the day to make her smile while she’s at work, and then check in again in the evening to see how her day was. However, if you’re making last minute plans or she’s quick replying to your texts then it’s better to respond sooner rather than later or she might think that you’re not interested in her romantically.
How to tell a girl you like her over texting
Girls love it when guys remember the little things. If the girl you like mentioned she was going somewhere or seeing a movie, text her a few days later and ask how it was in a fun, playful way. Not only will this keep the conversation from going stale, but it’s a great way to let the girl know you like her over text without coming on too strongly.
What to talk about when texting a girl
If you’ve made arrangements to meet up with the girl you like over text, make sure you continue texting right up to your date. Just because you’ve made plans doesn’t mean that they’re set in stone: if you suddenly stop texting a girl after setting up a date, she might think you’ve gotten cold feet and don’t actually want to meet up. Texting her prior to your date is also a great way to keep her interested.
Spell check: what not to text a girl
We’ve all been autocorrect victims before, but if you’re trying to impress the girl you like through texting then make sure everything is spelled correctly and makes sense. The odd abbreviation and slang term here and there is fine, but if you constantly text her badly composed messages then she might think that you’re not that invested in talking to her.
So what are you waiting for? Get texting!
