The easiest way to lose a date with the girl you’ve been eyeing is to send her the wrong text. You should know with so many texting apps available, texting has just been upgraded to be an ‘art’, just like flirting and seduction. If underdone, it doesn’t pay, and neither does overdoing it. It’s a familiar situation with most of us – we send a text, and wait for a reply that never comes. If you’re this guy too, this is for you – STOP making these 21 big texting mistakes:
1. Stop overanalyzing every text message
Giving a little thought before texting a girl is fine but beating yourself up to come up with the perfect line is futile. Girls prefer spontaneous guys. Just live in the moment, text the first thing that comes to your mind. If you guys can connect at that level, good; otherwise, move on for your best.
Too much texting can make you come across as a needy and desperate person. Only when you’ve reached far in a relationship can you experiment with long poems. But, believe us, until then your texts are most likely to work if they are short.
This is the biggest mistake guys can make while texting girls. Talk as much as is natural, but never try to beat around the bush, only to keep her entangled in chatting. If she senses desperation, it’s goodbye my friend.
You met a girl, you both hit it off in seconds and enjoyed each other’s company and you ended up exchanging numbers. It’s alright that you send her the first text, but don’t send another text before she replies.
If you guys are gelling along well, don’t waste time in asking her out. If you don’t, she’ll get the feeling you’re not serious enough. She could also stop replying to your texts. Be clear about your intentions and communicate them openly, before it’s too late.
One trait that every girl wants in her guy is someone who loves to have fun. Someone who can make her smile, crack jokes and keep her happy. So stop nagging on texts. No sad stories, no being a cry-baby!
Got a date with her? Make sure you communicate the right time and place of meeting on text. Keep her updated about where you’ve reached and keep asking her about her location. That way, she’ll feel welcomed and cared for.
You need to engage her emotionally through texts. Good morning, good night is never enough! Unless you don’t share interesting things, she’ll never be able to connect. With so many good texting apps, you can be creative. Send her a dubsmash video of yourself. Send her pictures of places you’re visiting. Send her songs. Ask for the same things in return and build a connection.
Don’t ever build a routine. Many of us get into the habit of asking, ‘What did you have for lunch?’, ‘What’s for dinner?’ and so on… These questions hardly convey your interest in the person. They just bring you out as ‘boring’.
