Avoid Getting Your Number Blocked With These Tips For Text Flirting
I know I have spoken of text flirting before, but it is always good to have a little bit of a refresher on the fundamentals, just in case you have forgotten whether sending that naked crotch shot is a good idea or not…it isn’t!
Text flirting is a great way to get the ball rolling with your crush, without the overwhelming fear of face-to-face rejection. Additionally, there is very little chance that you will stumble over your words like a bumbling idiot. Just double and triple check your text before you send it to make sure you haven’t been screwed by auto correct. Additionally, make sure you check who your text message is going to, you definitely do not want to accidentally sext your mum – it will make for some very awkward family dinners.
- Bold Beginnings – Try to be a little bit original when you get in touch for the first time, ‘Hey, how are you?’ is boring, it is the kind of small talk we hear dozens of times a day. Maybe start with a funny observation or a joke that you recently heard – don’t start with anything too romantic, that is something you want to build up to.
- Ask A Question Or Two – Make the effort to fin out more about them by asking them questions – you will be surprised how far a conversation can go when you ask something like “What is your favourite movie?” When you show a general interest in their likes and dislikes, you demonstrate that you really are interested in them and not just what is in their pants.
- No Text Speak – Thanks to smart phones with proper Qwerty keyboards, there is no reason to talk in annoying text speak – that is something 3 year old girls do when they text each other. Take those ten extra seconds to write out your text properly and check your grammar and spelling mistakes – they can be a right turn off.
- A little Bit of Subtlety – Don’t come on too strong right away, if you want to build a real rapport with someone it has to come gradually. And don’t try to hard to impress them – there is nothing worse than those people who always have to outdo a story with a bigger and better one.
