Texting has become integral to the way we communicate, and nowhere more so than in dating. Contrary to popular belief, texts are not only used to organize a time and a place for an activity, but also to banter, tease, and flirt – basically the essentials of any kind of romantic relationship. So, sorry to break it to you, but if you’re behind the times on the texting game, you’d better shape up and get on board.
Make Them Laugh And have Fun!
Men and women alike love to laugh – that’s a given – and if you can make them laugh with just a few flirty texting games, you’re already halfway to making them fall for you.
Luckily for those to whom flirty texting (flexting?) doesn’t came naturally, there are simple games that you can play with that special someone that are easy to get going, fun to play, and make you look like a texting genius in no time flat.
Whether you’re messaging a girl you’ve just met, or you’re spicing up the mobile chemistry between you and your long term boyfriend, these fun, flirty texting games are bound to please everyone, and make you look like a pro.
The Inside Joke
This works particularly well with someone you’ve just met. Pick something that stood out in your mind from your first meeting and turn it into ‘your’ joke.
An easy way to do this is with a nickname. Say her skirt blew up in a gust of wind between the restaurant and the car, causing her some embarrassment – ease the tension and make her laugh by dubbing her “Marilyn”.
Start off a morning text with the nickname Marilyn and she’ll be reminded how much you made her laugh. Having an inside joke makes both participants feel like they’re part of something special.
Would You Rather?
Good for new acquaintances or for some extra fun with your partner, “would you rather” is great because it’s a game that can go anywhere you want it to…
Start off with soft, playful questions, like:
“Would you rather only eat strawberries for the rest of your life, or only eat ice cream?”
You’ll be surprised how quickly flirty texting games can heat up.
Would you rather spend one night with Ryan Gosling, or find true love?
“Would you rather have sex on the kitchen table or in front of the large hallway mirror?”
Take your cues from him or her and be careful not to overstep the mark – let your partner set the pace.
When you first meet someone new, there’s all the excitement of getting to know each other, one little text at a time. Make it even more fun by turning it into something a little more creative.
Start out with:
“We could keep up this pretense of nonchalant interest…”
“But I want to know everything about you – right now”
“Can I have 20 questions?”
Mix the questions up, throwing in funny ones amidst more serious ones to get a well-rounded picture. Family, friends, future hopes and dreams: the only thing that’s out of bounds in this game is exes – don’t even go there!
Fill In The Blanks
More for those comfortable enough with each other to mix teasing and truth without feelings being hurt, this is a fun game to play while you’re on a long bus trip, or if it’s been a while since you’ve been together.
Basically, start out a question about yourself, and leave one important word blank – and let your partner fill it in!
“You really love it when I ….”
“I’m at my cutest after….”
The best thing about this game is that you get them thinking about all the great things you do, how you look, and what they love most about you.
But be warned, a sassy lady won’t be sending only compliments your way, don’t be surprised if you get ‘wash the dishes!’ in response to the first question – but hey, if that’s not love, what is?
Likewise, a sexually charged guy could get pretty graphic when answering: “I’m at my cutest after….”
Never Have I Ever
Thought this was only a drinking game? Think again. This is one of the best flirty texting games you can play – and possibly the best way to get to know someone!
Simply say something that you’ve never done, and find out how different your partner is!
For example – “Never have I ever gone skinny dipping”
If they have done it, you get to ask another question, and if they haven’t, then it’s their turn.
Be creative with your questions, you’ll be surprised with the things your partner has done that you’ve just never thought to ask in a normal conversation!
Flirty Texting Games – Who To Play With?
Flirty texting games are so much fun to play with your girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, or even someone you’ve just met. It’s a great way to get to know someone better, build up some banter, and get an interesting conversation going.
Just remember to keep it short and sweet – even good things turn bad if they go for too long – and always make sure your partner’s into it when you start.
After that, happy texting!
