Text Flirting is clearly the wave of the flirty future—-or present but learning how to do it right is hard. Have you ever received a flirty text message from your sweetheart and stared back at the screen, wondering what to do next? If you’re new at text flirting, it may be a little scary or awkward at first. But like all things, practice makes perfect, so here’s your big chance to get used to it! Text flirting is simple and fun once you get the hang of it. I’ve written an article with 10 text flirting ideas to try today and I hope you can get some great tips and tricks to try from it! Please keep on reading my article on flirting for some fantastic and cute ideas to try out. Even if you are a pro at flirting by text, you never know! You may pick up some new ideas!
1. BLANK TEXT
I know this text flirting idea sounds a little wacko, but just give it a shot! Send your man a blank text, and then see what happens. He will usually text back and say “I got a blank text from you. What’s up?” This is your opportunity to respond with a casual, “Oh, I didn’t know I sent you a text! My phone must have been missing you :)” From there, the two of you can engage yourselves in sweet talk!
2. SEND A PICTURE
This maybe the oldest trick in the book, but that’s probably because it works so well! Sending your sweetie a picture of you will get him to thinking about you. Make it sweet, crazy, cute or a little sexy, never EVER send nude or partially nude photos of yourself through text. There are too many dangers out there or embarrassing photo scams waiting to happen. A picture of your gorgeous smiling face is enough to satisfy your man!
3. CHEESY PICK-UP LINES
Ya gotta love cheesy pick up lines for text flirting! Whether they are cutesy or silly, they are sure to bring a smile to your significant other’s face. Here’s a few to try: “Hey good lookin’ watcha got cookin’?” “Uh-oh….my heart’s missing! Did you steal it?” “Let’s make like fabric softener and snuggle!” “We go together like peanut butter and jelly!”
4. COMPLIMENT YOUR SWEETHEART
There’s no better way to text flirt than to compliment each other on what you like best. Compliment your man’s good looks, his athletic abilities, his personality features, or what he was wearing earlier in the day. Men love to be adored and admired by women, so heap on the praise! Just don’t overdo it! You don’t want to be too sugary sweet. He might think you are sucking up to him for no good reason!
5. SHORT AND SWEET TEXT FLIRTING
When text flirting, always remember this one little tip. It’s a good idea to keep things short and sweet. Men aren’t usually interested in reading a book, nor do they have the time and patience to sit there and type you a four page response back. So keep your flirting short, sweet and to the point. You can draw it out, texting for hours at a time or even all day-as long as you keep your texts short, you will keep his interest as well!
6. TEXTING VERSUS SEXTING
I’m going to make a quick little point that I’m sure all mothers will agree with me on. I’m not a mother, but I do have siblings. And I think I’m within bounds by stating that minors, especially minors 16 and under, should not be sexting one another. It’s actually illegal in some states now! Sexting versus texting is a broad subject, one with many opinions I’m sure. But the point is, while there may be no harm in flirting by text, there’s a lot of harm in sext flirting and for young minors in particular!
7. SPELL CHECK
If there’s one thing that drives me mental about text flirting, or texting in general, it’s when people don’t know how to spell right. Especially for adults! It’s hard to be in a flirty mood when the grown-up adult person you are texting is sending messages that you have to encode into your computer to understand! It’s one thing when teens do it, but for adults it should be over-ruled. Keep your flirting mature. That will be appealing on its own level!
8. MARRIED COUPLES-TEXT FLIRTING
Here’s an idea about flirting! Married couples should still do it! It helps keep the honey in the honeymoon, and the spark in the love life! This is the one instance where sexting might be appropriate. But that is up to your discretion of course! You can still have fun with good old flirting without the innuendo. And you should! Just because there’s a ring on your hand doesn’t mean you need to let things get boring and predictable. Liven things u with a little text flirting every now and then!
9. PERSONALIZE IT
No matter what you do when text flirting, remember to make it YOU. Keep it personal! Don’t try to say things uncharacteristic of you, you’ll just come off sounding flaky and contrived. You certainly don’t want that! Put some of your own style into your messages. Whether it be crazy, spunky, spontaneous or romantic and poetic, make it uniquely yours. He will appreciate that more than anything.
One really fun thing to do through texting is to create “invitations.” You can invite your sweetheart to do anything through a text and keep it fun and lighthearted. Here’s a few “invitation” ideas to try. “You, me, X factor –My place. Tonight. I’ll cook Be there or be square!” Or
“Let’s do star gazing ….or
Hw abt a pizza today ?
Text flirting isn’t that hard, so don’t let it scare you! You will have fun, and you may be a little bolder then what you are face to face, so you aren’t as shy to give and receive compliments that way.
