The act of texting a girl for the first time is one which no guy is perfect at. Even those that assume that they’ve got the act of texting a girl for the first time figured out still manage to slip up every now and then. There’s no universal rule on texting a girl for the first time, but there are pointers that can be very helpful in initiating a lively conversation with a lady after texting her for the first time.
We have put some pointers that will apply to a majority of women. You want to be the one whose text is the beginning of a beautiful friendship or relationship not the one whose text gets deleted, remember.
Be sure of why you’re texting her
Texting a girl for the first time can seem like rocket science if the basics are not figured out. The reason for texting her is one of those basics. She’s most definitely going to ask why you’re texting her, and it is better to have a believable and not akward reason prepared.
Keep things simple
The first time you text a girl is not when you’re meant to go all detective on her and begin to ask weird questions. It is the first time you’re texting her, and she will definitely have some reservations. Thus, you should strive to keep it simple and good enough to be the beginning of several conversations.
Be prepared to lead the conversation, especially at the very beginning
A polite salutation that includes “hi” and “how was your day” is as much effort a lot of guys put into the first text they send to a girl, and they expect some special magical force to take charge of the conversation and get them to be friends with the girl. Seeing that there’s no such magical force, conversations that are begun that way die before they even begin.
You should be able to develop content for the conversation you’re hoping to initiate with the first text message before it starts. Add some personality, and ask light personal questions if you already have some personal details about her.
Make her laugh
If there’s a way to find out what she will laugh at before initiating the conversation, you should do that and deploy whatever information you gather. It has been overly proven that girls love guys that can make them laugh, and being that guy will guarantee winning with the first text. If she’s a colleague or someone you have been in their presence in the past, you could talk about a funny scenario which you both witnessed.
Be open to telling her about yourself
Don’t be that guy that asks all the questions and gets short replies from her without inspiring her to want to know more about you. Ensure that you get the conversation to the point where she wants to know about you. Remember not to bombard her with every tiny detail of your life when she begins to ask the questions.
The trick with texting a girl for the first time is to keep to simple and sleek enough for her to want more.
