Texting is a critical part of dating. The problem is I see a lot of people misuse it.
They’ll send essay-long messages about their day and how work is going, and what they ate for breakfast on Tuesday.
Newsflash: texting is not for long, in-depth conversations.
Save those for when you see the guy in person!
Here’s what texting is great for:
- Building desire
- Making him miss you and want to see you IRL
So, here are 5 cute texts to send a guy that are guaranteed to make him miss you.
- Send him a picture of you with someone else doing something epic!
Now, you don’t want to send a photo of you with another guy on a date. Send him a picture of you with a friend doing something fun, like hiking a crazy-tall mountain or the moment before you sky-dive out of an airplane!
This will demonstrate your value because you’re showing him you have a full, awesome life without him, and that’s guaranteed to make him work harder to be a part of it.
- “I was just thinking back to when…”
This could be a memory of a date you went on or some other experience you shared. Just make sure it was super fun or romantic.
What this will do is illicit an emotional response in him of that exact moment in time, make him smile and miss you.
- Stop texting him so much!
Okay, so I know this isn’t exactly a text, but if you want a man to miss you, it’s important to give him a chance to!
What’s the best way to do that?
Be doing so many cool things that you don’t have time to always be texting him.
Little Love Step #5 of my Little Love Steps is all about pacing the progression of your connections.
If this is hard for you, put your phone on do not disturb, or hide it in a drawer, along with those choc chip cookies.
- “I’m wearing something right now that I think you’d like…”
Men are visual creatures. The second he reads this text, his mind will catapult into overdrive:
What is she wearing?
Dress, skirt, heels, bikini, underwear, nothing?
Am I going to get a cheeky photo?
Tip: don’t send this if you’ve only gone on one date because that’s probably a little too much too soon. This is more appropriate if you’re at Little Love Step #5 or beyond.
- “I bet my weekend beat your weekend!”
If you haven’t spoken to a guy for a couple of weeks, send him this text. It will show him you’ve had an awesome weekend, make him wonder what you’ve been up to, and help you rekindle the connection and have some light-hearted banter.
If he’s anything like me, he will immediately text you back saying, “no way your weekend beat my weekend!!
