That is why I have compiled a list of the 5 ways you can let him know you like him through one of the most difficult mediums to decipher………… text message. Get ready, girls, I am about to show you how to put it all on the line, without even doing so.
Ask Specific Questions
“How was your day?…… Yeah good, wbu……..?” That right there is the most boring, generic text you can ever share with someone, let alone the guy you are crushing on when you want him to know it. You should avoid this at all costs and instead ask really specific questions in a fun way.
To do this, just ask him which he prefers out of two completely different things, like Italian or Chinese (food of course), The Weeknd or Harry Stiles, chocolate or strawberry… Not only is this a super fun and cute way to flirt with him, but it also hints on you want to know more. This will definitely get him thinking you might have a little interest in him.
Keep Your Emoji Game Strong
Now I know some people hate emojis (can’t understand why), but hey, our great, great, great, great ancestors used to flirt in cave paintings, right? So why can’t we? I am a strong believer that the more emojis the better, and these little beauties are the perfect tool to drop some hints to that guy you’re always texting.
Throw in some kiss or wink face emoji at the end of every text. Do use your common sense with this though – nothing like a kiss face emoji at the end of a text explaining how your great aunty just died. I normally have 2 to 3 emojis as a bars minimum in all my texts, and they’re always on the cheeky side. It’s the perfect way of letting him know you like him without having to even say (or type) that much.
What Are Your Plans?
This is a consistent question that you should be throwing out there at least once a week if you’re serious about a guy. Unlike “How was your day“, this line pushes you toward the ultimate goal of hanging out with him!
When you let him know that you are interested in his plans, he will definitely pick up that you want to be involved. Be warned: don’t go crazy with this. It should only be used once a week, normally closer to the weekend, and once he has told you of his plans for spending Friday night with his mum for her birthday, don’t take that as an invite to rock up with a sponge cake.
As much as I hate to say it, all good things must come to an end, including the conversation (textsation) you are having with your unsuspecting crush. But, hey, this is the perfect time to really drop a hint that you like him. Instead of just saying the generic “See ya later” or “Talk soon“, be a bit more creative and let him know that you want him thinking about you, text him something like
“You better tell me how you go with that job proposal (wink face emoji)“ or “Don’t forget to tag me in a photo of your puppy“. Anything that lets him know you want to speak again, no matter how random it is, will get him thinking.
Turn A Text Into A Call
The ultimate way to get a guy to know you like him is to turn a text message into a phone call. Now, this takes some balls (from both you and him), and it really depends on where you guys are at in the flirting department.
If you are serious about him knowing you like him and want to find out if he feels the same, then this is the way to do it. Just simply ask him to call you and tell you about it (in a non-pathetic way, of course) or you could say, “I saw the funniest thing at work“ then just say “Can’t explain it over text“ (but make sure you actually have something halfway funny to say).
Basically, anything that is too long or complicated to explain over text is the perfect bait to get him to call you, and once he knows you want him to call, then he will know what’s up…And if he is half the man he pretends to be over text, he should have no issue picking up the phone for a call.
Are You Ready To Let Him Know You Like Him?
There you have it, ladies: my 5 tips to let him know you like him via text. Now remember that good things come to those who wait, so be patient, drop little hints like the ones above in your texts, and he will eventually pick up that you have a thing for him.
Another option is to just be honest and tell him you like him! I know us girls often feel like it comes across as desperate and the guy should do the chasing, but hey, it’s nearly 2024…
