Let’s face it–the way to a woman’s heart these days is through her cellphone. Texting is important because you want to be the man a woman talks to on a regular basis to ensure that you are always staying on her radar. Women love to text; therefore, knowing how to effectively communicate with them through text messaging is paramount. Here are 5 simple points to remember when texting a girl you’re interested in.
1. Make sure your texts have a purpose
The purpose of your texts to a woman is to keep moving the interaction forward and put a smile on her face. Therefore, your texts to women should be about building attraction and planning to dates. If your texts to a woman don’t have purpose and direction, it’s likely she’ll get bored and her attraction may begin to fade. Write something that will make her feel good, special and sexy when she reads it. Women also love to hear their phones buzz and read texts from guys that are personal, intriguing, and funny. So, using her name (or your nicknames for her) whenever you can along with an inside joke the two of you have will help her recall your connection, making her feel warm and positive toward you.
2. Keep your texts short and concise
Avoid the temptation to tell her about the three days since you last saw her in detail, and instead keep your texts short and straight to the point. Long texts tell her you’re putting a lot of work in–and they also ask her to put a lot of work in reading your text. So, keep things concise and you’ll be more likely to keep her interest.
3. Tease Her
Teasing in your text communication with a woman is an amazing way to keep attraction on fire and will keep her on her toes. It could be making her a compliment and then taking it away, like “You’re a very smart girl…Sometimes!”, or it could be something like “Stop thinking about me, my ears are burning!” She will appreciate your creativity.
4. Use emoticons wisely
Using emoticons while text messaging women is effective because it enables flirting more easily. Emoticons are also efficient at expressing emotions a man wants to convey, and most women find them cute, which works to your benefit. However, using them in every other sentence can be overkill and distracting from what you’re trying to say. So, stick to no more than one emoticon per message.
5. Don’t respond instantly to her texts
Replying with four texts for every one she sends shows you’re too eager and signs of neediness. You shouldn’t over-think it, but go easy and feel out the pace of the conversation. If she takes thirty minutes to respond, just give it a few minutes before messaging her back.
