7 texting rules to keep him interested in you



Texting a guy you like is not as simple or as easy as it seems (at least, not when it comes to texting a romantic partner or a guy you like!)…

But, if you follow these 7 texting rules I’ve listed below, you’ll help keep your man engaged and interested.

Let’s begin, shall we?

1. Show him that you have a life and passions outside of him

This is one of the biggest attraction killers when it comes to texting men… if you give your man a sense that he is the centre of your universe, he will lose attraction for you.

Remember, men are naturally hard wired to want to chase women… if you don’t give them a reason to feel that hunger and desire, they will generally lose interest.

2. Try and remain positive all the time!

Once you get to know a guy, it’s easy to let loose and begin complaining more about the negative aspects of your life. There’s nothing wrong with confiding with your man about the things that bother you, but this can also be a real attraction killer.

If you’re constantly telling your guy about how shitty your life is, eventually, he’s going to think that you don’t have any control over your life… or even worse, maybe he’ll feel responsible for how shitty you feel.

3. Don’t just say, “Hey” or “What’s up?”

This is one of the must lacklustre ways to greet someone over text. There are a ton of other things you can do to get his blood pumping in a way that makes him like you more.

Sure, we all feel a bit lazy sometimes… but it doesn’t take that much more effort to sound ten times more attractive. A little effort goes a long way and it gives him something more substantial to reply to.

4. Ask him thoughtful questions

I mean, don’t you like it when a guy asks about your life? It shows you that he cares, right? So show HIM that you also care by asking him thoughtful questions.

Listen to what’s been on his mind most often — it could be something to do with school, work, or even a hobby that he’s really into.

5. Don’t always respond too early or too late

If you respond to his text messages immediately, he’ll feel like you’re too available… but along the same lines, if you don’t respond for a few days, he’ll lose interest because he’ll feel like you’re just not into him anymore.

The key is to sometimes respond in a timely manner, and to sometimes wait a few hours to reply.

6. Let him chase you

Don’t always be the one to initiate a conversation with him… once you know that he’s into you, let him text you first. (Look for these signs that indicate a guy likes you to figure out whether he’s fallen for you.)

This will let him feel like he’s the one chasing you and he’ll like that. Remember, guys want to chase the woman that they’re interested in! So there’s no harm in letting him feel this way.

7. Don’t text him too much…

And at the very least, don’t text him until he responds. This is especially important in the early days of dating.

If you text him way too much, he’ll get the impression that you’re a stage 5 clinger… and this is the least attractive thing you can do when you first meet a guy.
