- Here are some text examples to send him to hook you:
1) Keep it short-and-sweet.
No one wants a novel when texting because they’re on their phones constantly scrolling through other messages.
If you want to text someone for more than two sentences, ask them first if they have time before starting.
This way you can avoid coming off as needy or too eager without worrying about being left hanging waiting for an answer back.
Texting is not something people do all day long like phone calls are so don’t waste their time by making them respond in an hour or so when they could have been doing something else.
2) Emojis are your friend!
They’re small, playful, and can really help convey what you’re feeling when words just aren’t enough.
Face with tears of joy is one of the most popular emojis that mean happiness–don’t be afraid to use them!
They can also help you avoid the awkward “I miss you” or “I’m thinking of you moment” that can happen when a conversation goes silent.
It’s up to you whether you want to overdo it on emojis, but they’re mostly used in fun and aren’t meant for serious conversations.
3) Show some skin (in your texts)!
When someone finds you attractive or finds something funny/sweet about you, it’s likely they’ll screenshot your text conversation and save it.
If they do this, don’t get mad; instead show off your good side by keeping the conversation flirty over text–you might get more than you bargained for 😉
Remember, it’s all in the way you present yourself and what you say. If you come across as someone who is only interested in a physical relationship, he’ll likely lose interest fast.
4) Save the sarcasm.
Some people have a hard time figuring out when someone is being sarcastic, so save it for when you know they might be able to tell as well as for your inside jokes with your friends.
Sarcasm can come off as mean, spiteful or even rude if not used properly and this could cause problems in your relationship down the road if just starting one over text!
5) Don’t ask questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no.
Texting is meant to start a conversation and keep it going–asking questions like “Where are you?” or “What are you doing?” can make texting feel more like work than fun.
Try something like “It’s sunny outside, what are you going to do today?” which gives them the opportunity to talk about their day and what they’re looking forward to.
You can also make a silly observation about your surroundings and ask them what they think.
6) End on a high note!
There’s nothing worse than having to reply to someone over and over again because you don’t want the conversation to die down, only for it to never end up going anywhere.
Try ending with something like “talk soon” or “I’m going to go now but I had a lot of fun talking with you!” This way if they want to keep chatting, they can always follow up with you later.
Remember that most people are busy, so try not to be offended if someone seems short in their replies-they might have just been caught off guard or is overwhelmed at the moment .
Texting is meant for having fun and expressing yourself in a way that’s casual, not too serious and definitely not boring!
Have fun with it and you’ll see your conversations flourish by following the tips above.
Remember to be confident, flirty and straightforward if you want someone to actually want to spend time texting you. Then once you’ve gotten comfortable, send them a naked picture for good measure
6) Pay attention to the tone of their replies.
If they reply with short, one-word answers or seem disinterested in your conversation, it might be time to move on.
No one wants to feel like they’re being talked down to or that their conversation isn’t worth the other person’s time.
7) Double check your spelling and grammar!
This one should be a no-brainer, but typos can really change the meaning of what you’re trying to say.
If you’re trying to come across as flirty and fun, a typo can turn that into something else entirely. This is true for any type of text, not just over text.
If you’re going to include emojis in your conversation, make sure they don’t change the tone or meaning of what you’re trying to say!
4) Be playful!
This one goes hand-in-hand with keeping things short and sweet. If you can make him laugh or even just smile over text, he’s definitely hooked.
Teasing each other is always a good way to keep the banter going and show that you’re paying attention to what he’s saying.
Try not to be too harsh with your jokes, but make sure they’re funny enough so that he’ll want to reply back. You need to play it just right so you don’t come across as rude.
Send him a cute little text about anything you’re doing and he’s not there to enjoy it, and he’ll be grateful.
5) Be interesting!
No one wants to text with someone who just drones on and on about their day or what they’re doing.
If you can make your conversations more interesting, he’ll be more likely to want to text you back.
Some ways to do this is by telling stories, sharing insights or even asking him questions about himself that he wouldn’t normally get the chance to answer.
Make sure that you actually listen to what he has to say as well and don’t just use him as a sounding board!
Here are some text examples to send him to hook you:
“I’m so happy it’s Friday, I’ve had the worst day. It was so hot outside I almost fainted in my cube.”
“I just left work and I’m heading home, thinking about what we could do this weekend-What are your plans?”
“Hey! What are you up to? Just got back from the gym, feeling exhausted!”
“It’s raining cats and dogs outside right now; you should come over 🙂 ” (If he replies with something like “okay sure,” then he is obviously interested in seeing you.)
Note: Make sure that all of these examples make sense in the context of a conversation. If they don’t seem to fit, then it’s best to just stick with something simple like “hi” or “what’s up?”
3) Keep your texts short and sweet!
This is one of the most important things to remember when trying to make a guy want you over text. No one wants to read a long novel in their inbox, especially if they’re not invested in the conversation.
Try to keep your texts down to around 3-5 sentences so that he doesn’t lose interest and so you don’t end up going anywhere.
There you have it!
These 7 tips will make your guy want you over text and you’ll be able to ask him out the next time you see him.
Keep these things in mind and watch as your hook rate goes through the roof! Good luck, ladies.
Note: Try not to sound too crazy or high maintenance; guys hate those kinds of girls. You can have a little bit of a diva attitude but don’t go overboard with it.
Also, try asking questions about his personal life so that he feels like you’re interested in getting to know him more.
That way he’ll keep wanting more! And for even more help, click here .
