It doesn’t matter if your crush or sweetie’s phone is smart or not, if you want to snag their attention, you’re the one’s that has to be smart. Translating that into text-talk though isn’t all that easy. gURL’s breaking it down to 101-level with 8 texts you can try to get your sweetie’s attention.
But first things first, let’s lay down two golden rules: Sarcasm is really hard to translate through text, so only the brave and experienced should attempt it. And, a good sense of humor is required. Now, on to the flirtexting:
1. The Impromptu date: “going to Starbucks for a gingerbread latte. wanna come?”
2. Bold and ready: “Whatcha doing tonight?”
3. “I sooo know ur thinking about me. So I thought I would say hi!” is a good way to go if you’ve had a flirty in-person moment.
4. “I really had a great time! Even if u r a little dorky ;)” This one’ll do after a date, but not let it go too much to their head.
5. “Miss me yet? ;)” Perfect for the post-three hour phone conversation.
6. The “Accidental” Blank Text. A simple “Whoops! Sorry! What’s up with you?” follow up to his “?” and the conversation’s started.
7. The “Accidental” Misfire. Send a text to them as if you had really meant it to go to a friend. It could be forward “Didn’t Justin look so hot in that hat today?” or a more mild “It was so cool to hang w Justin lw. i’m really feeling him.”
8. “Hi.” Seriously. Sometimes, the simpler, the better. A smiley wouldn’t hurt either. 🙂
