First of all I would like to congratulate you for finding a guy who you are interested in and scoring his phone number. Now you have to do everything to keep your relationship interesting. And one of the ways to do this is by texting.
At first glance, texting might seem something trivial but it can also be a major way to determine whether your relationship will go forward or not. It will also help you in scoring you your first date. But how to text a guy you just met?
What To Text A Guy You Just Met
While texting can fetch you your first date, if done wrong, it can also mess it up. You don’t want that to happen? So how do you make sure that you don’t mess it up when texting a guy you just met? Let me give you a few tips on how to text a guy and impress him.
Don’t Wait To Text Him
If you are interested in him, then never wait to text him first. If you wait longer to text him, he will start thinking that you are not interested in him. According to dating experts, it is better if you text him on the same day or the next day. But don’t show yourself as a desperate woman.
Another reason not to delay is that even he could be waiting for your text. If both of you are waiting for each other to text first, then your relationship may die even before it starts. So take the bold step and text him first. He might even respect and appreciate your confidence.
But remember to keep your text short and to-the-point. If your texts are vague, then you might not get the response that you are waiting for.
“I really enjoyed today. We should go out again sometime.”
This clearly shows that you are interested in him and any doubts that the guy might have about you will be cleared. It will also give the guy green signal to set up future dates.
Do not bore the guy by asking him irrelevant questions like “what is your height and weight?” or make him feel like he is being interviewed. Don’t be lazy and just text him ‘hi’. If you want to impress him, then you need to be different than others. You have to show him that you are not a boring person. Always have positive vibes whenever you are texting him.
If you have a good sense of humor, then try to make him laugh. You can check this blog post for text examples on how to make him smile that will help you keep him interested.
No one likes a person who is fake. Never try to alter your personality to impress him. Sure, you might be successful in pleasing him via text by being someone you are not, but when he meets you and finds out your true self, it will have a very bad impact on your relationship.’
So always be yourself and maintain your real version of you. While you shouldn’t lie about yourself, you should also not give out too much information about yourself since you are just getting to know each other and since you also have to make sure that he is not a fake one. Keep things light and answer only those questions that you are comfortable with.
Be bold enough to make plans with him. If you always keep him hanging, then he might also start losing interest. While texting is a just a way to getting to know each other, meeting in person is the first real step towards starting a relationship. So, if you like him then don’t be afraid to show your interest and let him know that you want to meet him again.
“Hey Ted, shall we go watch a movie this weekend? Ticket’s on me ;).”
If you make him wait longer, then he will start thinking you are not interested. At the same time don’t be always available for him. He might start thinking you don’t have a life at all. Try to end a conversation as soon as it starts getting interesting. Keep him wanting for more. Just politely let him know that you are busy with some work so that you don’t project yourself as a desperate person.
Don’t Text Late At Night
While there are some do’s and don’ts if you want to text a guy at night, try to avoid texting a guy you just met. Don’t pester the guy day and night. Give him some space to process all his feelings. And if he is giving short replies, then don’t get worried and bombard him with text messages. Guys are usually slow in understanding their feelings. Wait for atleast 24 hrs before you send him a follow up text.
Limit Your Texts
It is very important to get to know each other before you get into a relationship. But never do all of that via text. Don’t get too excited and share all your information through text. If you do that, you will not have anything to talk about when you meet. Keep your texts limited to basic things and set up your date. You can always text him later if you are not satisfied.
