When you’re living a bit of a distance from the girl you like, texting is one of the best ways for you to reach out to her. It allows you to have lighthearted conversations while getting to know each other better without necessarily digging too deep into your personal details. Even if you do choose to get a bit closer, you can do it via text too. But you can’t get anywhere with her if you don’t improve your texting game.
Of course, you think that you don’t need to improve your texting game with her right now because everything seems peachy. Trust us, it’s not, and you might need more work than you think you do. Here are a few tips to help you in that direction.
Open the conversation reasonably and originally
We must admit, some of the pickup lines of the internet are pretty funny. Their wordplay is usually good enough to squeeze a few laughs out of you. But not all girls like these pick up lines because they seem rather unoriginal. So, if you’re starting, be simple, reasonable and original.
Keep your flirting regulated
It’s fine if you want to leave her a compliment every now and then or if you want to make a cute comment that’ll leave her smiling occasionally. But you really cannot overdo it. If you do, you’ll set off an alarm in her head about you and reduce whatever trust she might’ve built with you to shreds. No girl wants to be with a guy who comes off too strong in the beginning.
Ask open-ended questions
An open-ended question is one that prompts a relatively long answer. For example, if you ask, “was your day fine?” she’ll give you a short yes or no. However, if you ask her how her day was, you’ll be leaving room for more details and better conversation.
Come up with interesting topics
The truth is that she probably already has a ton of men texting her already. If she’s cute enough to get your attention, she’s cute enough to get theirs too. If you want to stand yourself out from among them, you should think up truly interesting topics and discuss them. It’s not enough to ask how her day went. Everyone does that already.
Share funny content
Everyone enjoys a good laugh every now and then. Whenever you can, send her a nice picture or video that cracked you up. She’ll respond in the same fashion, and you’ll be on your way to becoming closer to her.
It’s understandable if you have no other option than to text as a means of getting to know a girl better. But, it is absolutely unjustifiable to be inappropriate with the lady just because you’re trying to get closer. So, as you follow these tips, ensure that you balance them with gentlemanliness.
