Using memes to make a girl smile

Memes are perfect for texting girls because they keep the mood light and playful.  Since they incorporate pictures, they can often convey exactly what you want to get across with more punch and humor than an ordinary text message to a girl.

Perhaps the best part of using memes to text a girl is that they don’t have to be relevant to anything – you can just send one out of the blue as a little gift to brighten up her day.  A spontaneous surprise like that will get her interested in you and thinking about you in a good way for sure.

Finding memes that will make a girl laugh is easy as there are plenty of great sites that have them (not to mention some good ones probably pop up on your Facebook page all the time).  Just make a point to save the funny ones you see so you have them in the chamber ready to go, and you’ll be able to get a girl to smile and think you’re funny at a moment’s notice.

Create attraction with a girl through role play

Women tend to be very imaginative and have a great time indulging in role-play.  It takes a girl out of the mundane day-to-day life and puts her in the middle of a fun, interesting adventure.  Women want a man who can lead them on this adventure.  And even though it’s not real, that shared experience will cause her to feel closer to you and therefore get her more attracted to you.  Meanwhile, the positive emotions you’ve generated in her will also get the girl to like you that much more.

To start bantering with a girl using role-play, simply assign a role to yourself and to her.  Some examples of how to banter with a girl through role-play include pretending you’re husband and wife (who are potentially heading for divorce), travel buddies, a rock star and his groupie… or anything else that comes to mind.

A key part of how to banter with a girl through role-play is to give her something fun and interesting to do in her role.  Then, be as descriptive as you can when setting the scene.  Introduce a conflict or obstacle for you to overcome together.  Give it some life and most importantly – have fun with it.  Make yourself smile and you’ll be able to get her smiling along, too.

Make a girl smile by smiling first

A common mistake men make when texting girls is not using emoticons.  But a smiley face, winking face, or any other emoticon can dramatically improve the tone to your text to a girl.  And simply seeing that smiley face (and from there imagining your smiling face) can be enough to activate her mirror neurons and get the girl smiling, too.

An additional advantage in using emoticons when texting girls is that emoticons make your mood and intentions clear.  You don’t want her guessing what your emotion behind the text was because that gives her mind a chance to wander to a dark place (she may assume you were angry, annoyed, etc.).  By allowing her to see the mood behind the text, she has no reason to second guess your attitude and you can avoid disastrous miscommunication when texting girls.

Use humor and confidence to build attraction

If you want to make a girl laugh and show a woman confidence in the same text, a great thing to do is to make fun of yourself.  Laughing at yourself shows you’re not worried about your self-image and that you are relaxed and confident with women.

Plus, making fun of yourself creates a safe environment for the two of you to communicate.  A woman wants a man that allows her to let loose and be herself.  When you make fun of yourself, you lead the way and show her that she doesn’t need to be perfect because you’re not perfect either.   It allows her to lower her guard and feel more comfortable opening up to you.   And that kind of comfort is vital in getting a woman attracted to you.

When making fun of yourself, don’t be self-deprecating and negative.  Keep it light and playful.  For instance, here’s an example on how to make a girl smile over text by making fun of yourself.  Saying something like “Okey Dokey little pokey (yeah, I’m a dork like that)” pokes fun at yourself, but in a fun, light-hearted way.

How to stand out from others guys when texting a girl

Nicknames are a fun way to personalize your text messages to women.  If there’s any nickname that came up during your interaction, include it in your text to the girl as that will make the message more fun and personal.  If she doesn’t have a nickname yet, you can always make one up as you’re writing the girl a text message.

Now the best nicknames to use for a girl are going to be the ones that are personal to her – ones that reflect her personality and the dynamic that existed between the two of you.  Be sure to keep it fun, positive and playful (and make sure it’s something a girl would want to be called).

To get you started, here are some examples of nicknames for women that have worked well in the past.  For girls that have a nerdy side, “nerdball” would fit great.   If there was a lot of sexual tension between the two of you when you met, then “sex kitten” could be a good one.  If she had a lot of energy and attitude, “sassy pants” might be appropriate.  If she’s little, maybe go with “midget ninja”.  If you want something more generic, “little miss pretty face” can be a great nickname to use for a girl.

Once he realized attraction was something he could learn, Brian spent way too much of his free time studying and practicing everything he could find on the subject. He stumbled across The Art of Charm podcast and eventually signed up for an AoC bootcamp. Excited by the progress he's made in his own life since the program, he decided to start writing for AoC to help other guys do the same. By writing about interpersonal dynamics, he’s finally able to put that psychology degree to good use.
