How to text a girl you like


You were lucky enough to get the number of that girl you like. Now it is the time to strategize on the next move.

If your dream girl is okay with you texting her late in the night, then you will need to exploit this option.

  1. Consider when she is free

You will need to avoid texting when she is busy with friends or occupied at work. You will need to ensure that she remains excited about your text rather than getting bugged as you are constantly interfering with her happy moments. Now that you like her and got her digits, you do not have to text her throughout the day.

If you already understand her routine you should only text her when you are sure that she is free to text back. Within a few days of texting her, she should begin to warm up towards you and indulge in some longer conversations during some certain times. After you have figured out the best time for texting her, make sure that you do it every day during that same time.

  • Ask about her week or day. In case you are already aware that there was an important event in her life, you can ask her about how it went down.
  • Make it simple. You can use one sentence to communicate a lot
  • Ensure it is open-ended. Instead of asking her what time she got home from the concert, you can ask her how was the concert. Avoid questions that she can easily answer using one word.

The truth of the matter is that you did not say anything wrong but it is only that you could have overdone it.

You will need to ensure that she reciprocates your feeling rather than just bombarding her with unwelcome texts. Show her that you are interested instead of coming out as annoying, needy or just some plain embarrassing. To avoid coming off too strong, you should:

  • Ensure a steady conversation flow. If you get two response after ten texts, it is not a good signs
  • Avoid texting back immediately. She may get back to you after a day or two, but don’t send the text back to her after 5 minutes as you will seem to be overeager
  • Do not show excessive emotions

There is no better way of doing this than using a pet name. By personalizing the relationship for the two of you, it will help to bring the two of you closer to you.

  1. Avoid flirting always

She may already be aware that you like her, however, this doesn’t mean that you should flirt with her every single minute. All what this will serve to do is to bore her. Instead, you should text her about her daily activities as this will let you know whether she is interested in letting you in to her life.

  1. Avoid being too eager

A major mistake that most dudes make is to sound to be too eager. The funny thing about texting a girl is that it is easy to look overeager even without realizing it. For instance, you can text a girl a number of boring questions while at the same time send some long replies and this can only serve to put her off.

  1. Match her texting vibes

It is advisable to try and find out about her texting vibe and ensure that you match it. For instance, you should avoid using a lot of emotions unless she is using them in her texts. Avoid ending your texts   with xoxo, unless she is also doing the same. With these texting tips, she will be able to appreciate your texts and even warm up to the relationship.
