How To Text A Girl You Like

Guys, the first text that you send to a girl are extremely important, because it's these text help her determine if she wants to be more that just friends with you.

1. Text her within 24 hours of meeting her.

You've heard the old school rule : Guy's should wait 2 - 3 days before contacting a woman but times have changed, and today, that rule is absolutely ridiculous.

And since it's so easy to pick up your phone and send her a few words, she thinks : if he's interested in me, why wouldn't he get in touch with me more quickly? So, send a text within 24 hours, otherwise she'll think you're not interested.

2. Use her name.

Immediately jumping into calling a girl a nickname, can be off putting.

Instead, it's better to start things off somewhere comfortable between formal and casual, so in your first texts simply calling her name is the safest way to go.

3. Remind her of something that happened when when you met.

In your first few texts, you don't want to send her something boring, and unoriginal, like hey, it's Ryan or hey, how are you? Instead, send her something interesting by reminding her of the right that you met, like : “last night was so fun! You're a maniac on the dance floor!”

4. Use proper grammar.

Do you still text like you used to back in high school? You know what I'm talking about : using the number 2 instead of to or using letter “y” instead of why.

Texting with improper grammar is a big turn off to a girl because it shows you're too lazy to do even a simple task like writing out a full word.

It takes less than a second to spell out the word, but it makes all the difference.

5. Text her the same way she texts you.

For an easy way to figure out how to text this girl, look at how she's texting you and how long she's texting you.

Mirroring how she's comfortable texting you, is a great, and safe, way to text her.

6. Text with a purpose.

The whole purpose of texting a girl is to eventually go on a date with her, right? So, don't send random, pointless texts, because if the conversation isn't going anywhere, either she'll lose interest or she'll think you're lost interest.

Instead, send texts that compliment her, entertain her, and keep the conversation going.

7. Make her wait to hear from you.

Because women want a man with better things to do than sit around waiting for her next text, you shouldn't always immediately text her back.

Now, this doesn't mean you should be rude, but give it some time before texting her back.

8. Send her exciting pictures of what you're doing.

A woman wants her man to have a life outside of their relationship and the reason why is simple : it shows that he's someone interesting to be around.

So show her your interest and send her pictures of you doing your manly hobbies.

9. Remember things she tells you about herself.

One of the most important things to a woman is to know that her man is listening to her. It's a simple thing, but it makes her feel appreciated and loved.

Let her know that you hear her by either bringing up something she's mentioned in the past, or by asking questions about something she has said, in order to have a deeper conversation.

10. Show her your good traits instead of telling her them.

Do you like listening to people brag about themselves? Of course you don't and neither do women.

So instead of bragging and telling her those things, show her, by sending her texts like : “I finished my book last week and can't find a new one, any suggestions?”

11. Joke with her, but not inappropriately.

While it's important to show her you have a sense of humor, telling inappropriate jokes will make you looks like a immature, crude man.

What are inappropriate jokes? Avoid anything that racist, sexual, insulting or mean.
