Flirty text messages are no different. See, a big problem some people have is prolonging a conversation way past its sell-by date. We should have exited a long time ago, but we kept it going until it died a horrible, awkward death.
Things got so bad that we even brought up our morbid fear of death! What were we thinking?!
It’s okay, though, because I’ve got the answers to your problem. In this article, I’m going to show you how to time your exit to perfection so that you flaunt your sass and leave your partner wanting more.
First things first, though …
With Flirty Text Messages Timing Is Everything
If a conversation looks like it’s about to die and you can’t think of any way to revive it, don’t revive it. Don’t even try. Just use your exit strategy and get the heck out of there.
If you try to revive a clearly dead conversation, you’ll inevitably say something silly that you’ll later regret. Moreover, it will make you look a tad desperate, and worse still … what if they don’t reply?
It’s super-duper important that you always end on a high. If a conversation is about to die but things haven’t gotten awkward yet, end it there.
Likewise, if you’ve told some amazing jokes and your partner can’t stop giggling, consider ending it there before the humor dries up and you say something awkward and terribly unfunny.
If you can time your exit to perfection, you won’t outstay your welcome, you’ll leave your partner with positive memories, and you’ll leave ‘em wanting more. Moreover, they’ll eventually say “you’re always leaving!”, and this is exactly what you want. It means they want more of you!
Here are some sassy exit strategies and flirty text messages for ending your next conversation.
1. You’re Busy
You know what happens when you’re glued to your phone and reply instantly? Your partner gets the impression there is nothing else going on in your life. Instead, you’ve got all the time in the world to text them back and – as long as they’re up for it – you’re more than happy to keep texting all day long.
That hardly makes you look intriguing! In fact, it makes you look predictable, mundane and a bit boring…
And a bit needy.
Even if you aren’t busy, don’t be afraid of making it look like you are. Tell them you’ve got stuff to do, places to go and people (not hotties) to see.
2. Tease Them!
Are you really going to tell them you’ve just disrobed, got totally naked and are about to use your new extra-soapy soap in the shower and therefore can’t text them for another 20 minutes?
Are you seriously going to tell them you’ve just arrived in a dressing room with lots of new lingerie and are about to try it on but won’t be able to text until you get home because your phone is about to die?
And are you FOR REAL going to tell them you’ve just come home soaking wet from the rain but have gotta go now to get naked and do stuff?
YES, YOU DARN WELL ARE.
Teasing like this is a bit cruel, but it’s oh so sexy and exciting. It’s arguably the best exit strategy you’ve got if you want to keep them begging/salivating for more.
And, hey, it totally works.
3. End with a Question
The worry we have when we leave a convo is that it might be hard to start a new one up, especially if it all ends a bit flat. Where do we go from there? This is why it’s a good idea to pin your entire exit strategy on a question.
Try as much as possible to make it related to the conversation you’ve just had, but if that’s not going to work, then say something like, “Hey, I meant to ask you this earlier but …” and then end with “Let me know next time we talk.”
They might respond there and then, but don’t get tempted to reply back right away. Save it until tomorrow so that you’ve got an excuse to resume contact.
These are the best sassy exit strategies when you need to end your next text conversation. Remember, timing is everything. None of these flirty text messages will work if the conversation has already died, which is why it’s important to exit either during a peak in the convo, or during a moment when you can tell the conversation is on the verge of dying. Good luck!
