Should I Text Her? 5 Common Mistakes Every Guy Makes

You’re standing at the pinnacle of your career, everything you touch turns to gold—except, perhaps, when it comes to deciphering the cryptic world of dating, especially that age-old question: “Should I text her?” It’s like navigating a labyrinth with no clear exit, isn’t it?

You, a man who strategizes multi-million dollar deals without breaking a sweat, now feel nervous, puzzling over a simple message on a screen. The irony isn’t lost on you. But here’s the twist: Mastering the art of the text could be your secret weapon, transforming those digits into dates with the kind of women you’ve only dreamed of. And mastering the art of the text doesn’t require a master’s degree.

Let’s dive into the dos and don’ts, the when and hows, turning your texting game from a question mark into a definitive strike of success. Because let’s face it, in the digital age of love, how you text is as crucial as what you text.

Key Takeaways:

  • Perseverance Pays Off: Don’t give up too soon; a lack of response doesn’t always signal disinterest.
  • Balance is Key: Avoid over-texting. Maintain a 1:1 message ratio to keep things interesting without appearing needy.
  • Keep It Light: Serious conversations are better had in person. Use texts for fun, engaging interactions.
  • Expand Your Options: Text multiple women to develop a sense of abundance, reducing pressure on any single interaction.
  • Focus on the Goal: Remember, the ultimate aim of texting is to facilitate face-to-face meetings, not endless chat.
  • Avoid Clinginess: Steer clear of messages that convey insecurity or desperation.
  • Craft Irresistible Texts: Use humor and curiosity to craft messages that demand a response.

Mistake 1: Why Quitting Too Soon on Your Texts Limits Your Chances

One mistake guys make when texting girls is giving up too easily. They text a girl, and if they don’t hear anything back (or just get a brief reply) they assume the girl doesn’t like them or she has a boyfriend. But this is often a big mistake.

After all, the reasons a girl doesn’t respond sometimes have nothing to do with whether or not she likes you. For instance, she may be busy, in a bad mood, or is simply unsure of how she wants to respond. The point is you don’t always know what’s going on in a girl’s head, so there’s no point in assuming the worst. Don’t turn something minor into a big deal.

And even if you’re right and she isn’t interested at that moment, that doesn’t mean she won’t change her mind. But if you’re going to get her to change her mind (and get her to start texting you), you’ve got to stay engaged.

The Perfect Follow-up Text After No Response to Reignite the Conversation

Let’s say a girl doesn’t text you back or doesn’t seem that interested. If you want to stay engaged, here’s what you can do. Give her some time (a few days… it can even be weeks) and then re-engage. Like all texts, you want the re-engaging text to the girl to be light, fun, and playful. Also, you’ll have better odds of getting her to respond if you ask a question that compels her to reply.

Altogether, here’s some real-life examples of what a good re-engaging text to a girl may look like:

  • “Did you get abducted by aliens? Because that would be a pretty cool story for our next chat. 🛸”: This text is playful and introduces an element of fun storytelling, inviting her to engage in a light-hearted conversation.
  • “I’ve started taking lessons in mind reading, but I’m not good yet. So, you’ll have to tell me what you’ve been up to instead. 🧠✨”: This message humorously acknowledges the lack of communication while inviting her to share her news.
  • “Rumor has it you’ve gone off on a secret adventure. Should I be jealous of Indiana Jones? 🏜️”: Inject a bit of adventure and mystery into your message, playfully suggesting she’s been up to something exciting.
  • “I’m considering sending a carrier pigeon to check in on you. Thoughts on bird visitors? 🕊️”: A quirky and amusing way to express that you’ve missed hearing from her, without sounding too serious.
  • “Our last conversation is getting lonely in my inbox. How about we give it some company? 📬”: This text is a clever and subtle way to point out the gap in communication while warmly inviting her to resume the conversation.

Keeping this light, fun, playful tone in your texts to a girl will get her smiling and put her in a good mood. If you can get her to smile, you’ll likely get a reply from her soon.

Mistake 2: The Pitfalls of Over-Texting: Finding the Right Balance

Nothing can kill attraction and ruin your chances of seeing a girl again quite like a texting conversation that goes on for too long. It makes a guy look needy and provides no challenge for the girl (which means she may quickly get bored and move on).

To avoid the common mistake guys make of sending a girl too many messages, here are a few simple rules for texting girls that will help you text a girl the right amount:

  • Keep the ratio close to 1:1. Send her as many messages (or fewer) as she sends you. And look to keep them roughly the same length.
  • Cut out needless messages. Don’t text a girl in situations where a response isn’t necessary. For example, you don’t need to reply to her “have a good night!” text if you’re just going to say “you too”. At that point, the conversation is already over. Let it end with her putting the ball in your court and waiting to hear back from you.
  • Keep an abundance mentality. Over-texting a girl tends to be the result of scarcity and neediness. That is, guys feel they need things to go well with her because they are afraid it’s the only opportunity they’ll have with a girl for a long time. To avoid this, you want to have an abundance mentality when talking to women. Simply imagine that you have a hundred other amazing girls that are actively interested in you. This will help you from getting too hung up on that one girl and prevent you from messaging her too much.

Mistake 3: The Key to Not Overthinking Texts

There are a time and place for a serious conversation with a girl, and texting is NOT it. Trying to have a serious conversation over text is exhausting and nobody likes doing it. So keep the serious “let’s-get-to-know-each-other” conversations to live interactions where you can gauge her reaction and interest with eye contact. When texting a girl, you instead want to focus on having fun and keeping it light. And when you’re ready to turn her on over text, we’ve got you covered.

Now, a great way to make sure you keep things light is by using emojis. Lots of guys shy away from emojis and think they’re “girly”. And they are, so keep your emoji use limited to less than hers. If she uses two emojis, you’re allowed to use one. Try to restrict your use of them to messages where it’s important that she not take what you say out of context. She won’t have to guess what your mood is because the emojis convey that for you. As a result, they help you avoid misunderstandings and unnecessary drama.

Mistake 4: Broadening Your Horizons: The Importance of Texting More Women

Are you texting one girl at a time? Then it’s easy to get wrapped up in the “scarcity” mentality mentioned earlier, especially if you think she’s an amazing woman.

Do you want to get out of that mindset for good? Become a master at texting girls by texting a lot of them.

Talking to multiple women helps the abundance mentality develop naturally. Once you have that, you’ll bring a fun, care-free attitude to all your interactions with women. Just doing that makes you more attractive. Plus, with all that practice, you’ll gain an intuitive knowledge of what to text a girl. You’ll transform into a texting master who knows and naturally follows all the rules for texting girls.

Mistake 5: Seeing the Bigger Picture: Strategic Texting for Better Connections

Sometimes guys forget just why they are texting a girl. They get wrapped up in idle chit chat and completely lose track of the big picture. The big picture, of course, is to get the girl to meet up.

Now, this doesn’t mean that texting girls is all logistics and planning. See, the fun, playful texts like the one mentioned earlier still play a role. Fun texts are key to re-establishing that attraction which will make her want to meet up.

But from there, remember that the purpose of your messages is to keep moving the interaction forward. No love story is stagnant. Therefore, your texts to women should be about building attraction and planning to the meet-up. If you don’t have purpose and direction, it’s likely she’ll get bored and her attraction may begin to fade.

Examples of Clingy Texts to Avoid at All Costs

Navigating the nuanced dance of digital communication can often feel like walking a tightrope—especially when it comes to keeping the spark alive without coming off as too eager. In the game of love and text, striking the perfect balance between showing genuine interest and maintaining an air of mystery is crucial. While it’s natural to want to express your enthusiasm, there’s a fine line between being attentively charming and unwittingly clingy. Below, we unveil a list of 10 clingy texts that could unwittingly sabotage your chances before the romance has a chance to bloom. These are the messages a high-value man should steer clear of to ensure that his digital dalliances pave the way for deeper connections, rather than unexpected goodbyes.

  • “Why aren’t you replying? 😢”: Sending this shows insecurity and impatience, suggesting that you’re monitoring her response time a bit too closely.
  • “Did I do something wrong?”: This text can make you appear overly concerned about her opinion and lacking in confidence.
  • “I can’t stop thinking about you.”: While this may seem romantic, saying it too early or too often can come off as obsessive rather than endearing.
  • “You’re my everything.”: Declaring someone as your ‘everything’ after a short period can feel intense and put undue pressure on the budding relationship.
  • “Please, let’s talk. I need you.”: Expressing neediness or desperation for her attention is likely to push her away rather than draw her closer.
  • “Who are you out with?”: Asking her whereabouts or who she’s with comes across as controlling and distrustful.
  • “Can’t you spend more time texting me? 😞”: This suggests that you’re prioritizing your need for communication over her personal time and boundaries.
  • “I saw you read my message. Why aren’t you responding?”: Acknowledging read receipts and questioning her about not responding immediately indicates you’re too focused on her online activity.
  • “We need to talk. I feel like you’re losing interest.”: This prematurely addresses concerns about the relationship’s status in a way that might create problems where there weren’t any.
  • “Remember, you’re mine.”: Possessiveness can be a red flag in any stage of a relationship. This text can come across as overly territorial and may alarm her.

Irresistible Texts: Crafting Messages She Can’t Ignore

Captivating someone’s interest through text messages is an art form, especially in the early stages of a relationship. Crafting the perfect text requires a blend of wit, charm, and authenticity. It’s about striking a balance between being confident and engaging, without coming across as needing her attention. In this section, we give you the top 9 text messages that embody a masculine yet playful and engaging tone. These messages are designed to pique her curiosity and encourage a response, so she can’t wait to text you back.

  • I’ve got good news and bad news… What do you want first?
  • You’ll never guess what celebrity I ran into! She looked just like you…
  • I’m trying to solve a mystery… where do missing socks go after laundry?
  • If you had to choose one song to listen to for the rest of your life, what would it be?
  • I’m planning a bank heist and need a partner-in-crime. What skills do you bring to the table?
  • I’m creating a playlist of songs for imaginary road trips. What’s your go-to song for the road?
  • I’m arguing with my dog about who’s the best superhero. Could use a third opinion. What’s yours?
  • Saw a dessert that’s too outrageous not to share. If desserts were people, this one would be your wild twin!
  • Just saw something that made me think of you. It’s a surprise – I’ll tell you about it when we see each other next.

Cute Random Texts for Her: Use With Caution

In the digital age of romance, sending cute random texts can be the equivalent of a modern-day love letter, offering a spontaneous spark to her day and a smile to her face. These sweet love messages should strike the perfect balance—sweet enough to make her heart flutter, yet confident to reflect your true self. It’s about showing her you’re thinking of her, even amidst a bustling schedule, making her feel special and eager to reply.

Below are some examples to inspire your next message. Make sure there is a clear romantic connection established before using them. Maybe you’ve slept together a few times or gone on several dates and the chemistry is obvious to both of you. Lastly, use them sparingly, maybe once a week. These are not texts you send on a daily basis unless you want her to get bored with you.

  • I hope your day is as amazing as you are
  • Thinking of you is my favorite break from a busy day
  • I’m convinced my dog likes you more than me. Should I be jealous?
  • How does someone as busy as you manage to look so great all the time?
  • Just saw something that made me smile and instantly thought of you. Hope you’re having a nice day, sugar buns.
  • Just passed by our favorite cafe and it reminded me how much I enjoy our conversations. Can’t wait for the next one.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best response to being blown off?

The best response to being blown off is either silence or kindness. Being blown off can feel disappointing and sometimes personal, but the best response is one that maintains your dignity while leaving the door open for future interactions. It’s important to approach the situation with a blend of understanding and self-respect. A response such as, “I know life can get busy, so let me know if you want to try planning something again in the future” strikes the right tone. This type of message shows that you’re understanding and not harboring any hard feelings, which is attractive. It also subtly places the ball in their court, allowing them to reach out when they’re ready, if they choose to. Remember, the right person will make the effort to meet you halfway. In the meantime, focus on activities and connections that bring you joy and fulfillment.

What does it mean when she sends me pictures of herself?

She wants your attention. Women crave validation from men, so if a girl is texting you selfies, she wants to know you find her attractive. Don’t fall for the trap. Either ignore her attempts to get a reaction from you or play it cool. Did she send you a selfie of her in a bikini at the beach? Comment on the nice weather or the surf. Did she send you a selfie of her in front of the mirror before going out with the girls? Comment on the nice rug (pun intended), the size of her bed, or that weird picture on her wall. If you want a girl to think you’re different, then you have to act different. Most guys will drool over a chick the moment she advertises herself. Don’t be a simp.

When you meet girl online dating should you text everyday?

Absolutely not. If you meet a girl via an online dating site or app, she has done nothing to earn your time and attention on a daily basis. Reserve texting for banter and scheduling a meetup. That is when you should talk and get to know each other. If she really wants to get to know you, your limited texting will get her more excited to meet up with you and have a face to face conversation. Consistent communication is key in building a connection, but texting every day can be overwhelming and may create a sense of pressure in the early stages of getting to know each other. It’s essential to strike a balance. Give her space to miss you and anticipate your texts.

Should I text her everyday?

No. When wondering if you should text a girl everyday, it’s crucial to consider the dynamics of your communication. The key lies in balance and understanding her interest level. Texting her every day can seem engaging and make your ego feel good. But it’s important to gauge if the girl is interested in this frequency of communication. Do you notice a lack of enthusiasm in her responses? Or does she only reply after a few hours? Then stop texting. Over-communication can sometimes overwhelm or create pressure, inadvertently pushing her away. It’s often more effective to maintain a sense of mystery and allow space for her to miss you and initiate contact. Remember, quality trumps quantity, and the goal is to foster interest, not inundate her with messages just to get an ego pump.

Should I text a girl ‘How Was Your Day?’

No, especially if you are just getting to know her. The initial conversation is a way to create a playful environment where you get to know each other in an entertaining manner. When you ask “How was your day?” you’re taking information away from her, without providing any information in return. Plus, the woman has to think about how her day was. This puts a lot of pressure on her end. Instead, focus on evoking emotions. A good rule of thumb is to think, “If I received that message, would I laugh?” If your answer is yes, it is most likely a good one to send because it conveys your personality and appeals to emotions.

How do you keep a girl texting you?

The key to keeping a woman texting you is to use playful banter. Text in a lighthearted manner. For example, you can misinterpret what she is saying and turn the dynamics around. Make it seem like she is chasing you. If she says “I love the Matcha Lattes in this coffee shop. You should totally check it out sometime.”, you could say “Whoa, I wanted to get to know each other more before our first date, but I like where your head’s at :)”. Guys get too invested in texting women and try to convince them to go out with them. If you can be that guy who communicates his standards, you will stand out.

Ultimately, you cannot make anyone do anything. You can increase your chances with a woman through these techniques, but her wanting to go out with you or responding to your text messages is not in your control. There are many reasons that may have nothing to do with you for why she might not respond. If things do not work out, don’t take it personally.

How do I text a girl without being needy?

There are two aspects to this: mental and practical. Mentally, develop a mindset of abundance. Generally, when guys act needy, they think the woman they are texting is the only option they will have for a while. Or they are putting her on a pedestal, as if she’s perfect or unattainable. Put yourself in situations where you are constantly meeting women that you might be interested in and talking to them. Then you will know you have other options.

There are also two quick techniques you can use when texting a girl. First, make sure you keep the text ratios around 1:1. That means send her as many texts as she sends you, and keep them around the same length. Secondly, don’t message her unnecessarily. Your texts should either communicate value and be playful or move things forward in terms of logistics.

How do I text a girl without seeming desperate?

If you want to text a girl without seeming desperate, act as if she is one of a hundred girls you’re texting. How would you text a girl if she was just one of many? Would you worry if she didn’t text you back in a couple hours? Would you write long text messages or feel the need to explain yourself? No. You would be short and to the point because you have a life, work to do, and plenty of other girls to talk to.

If you don’t want to seem desperate, keep the text ratio around 1:1. For every text she sends, reply with one. If she sends you a few at a time, reply with one. You want her to invest more in the conversation than you. If you invest more, she’ll think she has a higher sexual market value than you, and that’s an attraction killer. Women date up, and men date down. So if a woman thinks you’re beneath her, she’s out and onto the next guy until she finds a man she can look up to.

What does it mean if a girl takes days to respond?

If it happens once, maybe she got busy. If it’s a consistent pattern, she’s not into you, bro.

What does it mean if she doesn’t text back?

When she doesn’t text you back it typically means she’s busy or isn’t interested. However, it’s important to remember that there are numerous reasons for delayed responses that often have little to do with your connection or her interest in you. Here are some common reasons why she might not be texting back:

  • She’s genuinely busy: Life can get hectic, and sometimes, even if she wants to, she might not have the time to craft a response she feels is thoughtful enough. As a result, she might not say anything and may forget.
  • She’s taking her time: Some people prefer not to rush their responses, especially if they’re interested in someone and want to make sure they say the right thing.
  • She needs space: Everyone has different communication styles. She might need more personal space than you do, which affects how often she texts back. If you’ve been texting a lot, just back off and focus on your life. She’ll come around.
  • She’s unsure about her feelings: If she’s undecided about how she feels, she might delay her response as she tries to figure out her feelings. She may also feel the need to delay her response because if she’s unsure about her feelings, she doesn’t want to make you think she’s super into you by responding quickly.
  • Technical issues: It’s less common, but sometimes messages don’t go through, or phones are lost, broken, or silenced.
  • She’s not as interested: While it’s not the outcome anyone hopes for, it’s possible she may not share the same level of interest, and her lack of response is an indirect way of signaling this.

What’s crucial is how you handle the silence. Avoid jumping to conclusions or bombarding her with messages. Give her some time and space. If after a reasonable period you still haven’t heard back, it’s okay to send a polite, non-confrontational text to check in. If there’s still no response, it may be a sign to move on and focus your attention elsewhere. Remember, a healthy relationship involves mutual interest and communication.

Want to Effortlessly Attract the Girls You Want to Date?

Let’s face it, you’re killing it in your career, but when it comes to charming the socks off a stunning woman, do you feel like you’re just winging it? Imagine this: you walk up to her, hearts racing, palms a bit sweaty, but this time, you’re armed with more than just good looks and ambition.

Featured Snippet: The question “Should I text her?” plagues many, but the answer isn’t as complex as it seems. Yes, text her, but do so wisely. Avoid common pitfalls like over-texting or sending needy messages. Instead, aim for a balanced, engaging approach that piques her interest. Whether you’re rekindling a conversation or keeping the flame alive, the right text can open the door to more meaningful connections. Remember, the goal isn’t just to chat but to eventually take the connection offline into the real world.
