How to flirt with text messaging? 8 Flirting tips
Now, when just about everyone has a mobile phone, flirting has never been easier. Flirting by text is fun, easy and, when it needs to be, it can be perfectly discrete. Just a simple text message can say so much in just a few short seconds. Be sure to get your message right, you can’t take it back again, so here are our eight tips on how to flirt with text messaging:
1. Keep it simple
One of the simplest tips on how to flirt with text messaging is – keep it simple! A text should be short and to the point. Keep it light, keep it fun and remember the aim is to get a response and ultimately to talk to the recipient of your text in person.
2. Don’t worry about all the punctuation
You can tell the text ‘virgin’ by the way that their texts read, it’s like a formal letter. In flirty texting less is more, and you don’t need all the proper punctuation and formal grammar to get your message across. Don’t take your texts too seriously. Be playful and improvise.
3. Be ready to continue the conversation
There are no hard and fast rules about how long you take to respond to a text and we do live in the age of instant communication. Turn your flirty text into a conversation by responding quickly and raising the stakes a little with each reply. But don’t worry if you can’t reply immediately, it’s not a race!
4. Make sure you send it to the right person! LOL
Another important tip on how to flirt with text messaging is – make sure that you send it to the right person. Double check before you press send! It already happened to me to write: ‘Hey darling, we go out tonight?!’, and I sent it to the accountant, instead of sending it to my friend. Luckily the accountant had a sense of humor. 🙂 You wouldn’t be the first person to have sent a flirty text to the wrong number.
5. Don’t be impatient
Another tip on how to flirt with text messaging is – don’t show yourself impatient. If you don’t get a reply straightway, then don’t panic and don’t do what they call a double text. The other person could just be busy and, if you keep texting, it won’t be flirty, it can become annoying. Be aware!
6. Getting flirty
If you want to get into the ‘naughty’ zone with your text messaging, subtlety is the name of the game and a hint is far more seductive, than a blunt comment when you start to get personal. Build up slowly to the playful and flirty text and be sure that it could always be taken in fun, just in case you have misjudged the person.
7. Think before you send
One of the great benefits of a text messaging is that you get time to think about what you want to say. Take your time, you have only a few words to make it count, but with a bit of thought, you can make it witty, seductive and provoke the response that you want.
8. Don’t worry about the texting shorthand
Don’t worry, if you don’t know your ‘LOL’ from your ‘CU 2nite’, you don’t need to be a texting expert to flirt, just use your own words and have fun!
