You don’t always have to be so forward or aggressive in your approach to getting your man to like you; most especially not when you’re just starting out as a couple. You want to keep things casual, but you also want him to know that you’re serious about him and that you want him to take you seriously as well. You’ve been dating for quite a bit, and you know that he’s a great guy who is worth holding on to. You both have great chemistry, and it’s always a good time whenever you’re together. You are off to a great start, but you want to keep the ball rolling and you want to make use of every tool that is at your disposal.
And in this modern age that means one thing: texting. Texting can make or break early relationships. There’s no denying that. It’s the modern age and if you refuse to adapt to the times, you’re going to get left behind. It’s important that your texting game is on point if you want to give your relationship the best shot at surviving. And if you feel like you’re lost with him when it comes to texting, then this article is absolutely perfect for you. You want to get him to like you and stay interested in you; but you also don’t want to be coming off as aggressive and imposing. You don’t want to be pressuring him too much to the point that you scare him away.
But you also don’t want to be so cold so as to make him believe that you’re really not as into the relationship as you are. It’s a fine line that you’re going to have to learn to walk on. The most important thing you need to remember at this point is that you have to be yourself. The moment that you start to act fake, he’s going to notice. He doesn’t want someone who is patronizing him. He doesn’t want a girl who doesn’t feel safe about being her true self when she’s around him. So, if you feel like a lot of the items on this list just aren’t consistent with your personality, you don’t have to use them. Or you can tweak them to make them your own.
What’s most important here is that YOU believe what you’re texting him. It’s the only way to get him to believe it as well. And don’t worry if you’re not too good with words or writing. You don’t have to write like Oscar Wilde in order to get him to fall for you. Here are a few very simple and yet cute text messages that you can send him to get him to like you in a very wholesome and healthy manner.
1. “Hi. I had a great time with you last night.”
Let him know that you always enjoy spending time with him; and that you’re looking forward to whatever time you spend together in the future.
2. “You looked so handsome with what you wore today.”
Show him your appreciation for the effort that he puts into his looks. Make sure that you really prove to him that you’re paying attention.
3. “Can you tell me where I can have my car’s engine checked?”
This is a great text to send to make him feel needed and important in your life. Turn to him for advice on supposedly “manly” things.
4. “Do you want to come over and help me put up my shelf?”
This is another great way to make him feel like you really need him in your life. Ask him for some help with handy chores around the house. Beef his ego up a little bit.
5. “I got tickets for us to see the game this weekend.”
Show him that you’re always thinking of him; and that you are willing to get into the stuff that he’s into – like sports.
6. “(Insert friend’s name here) is asking me to invite you to her birthday party this weekend as my plus-one. You up for it?”
It’s a very casual way of letting him know that you want to start integrating him into your social life.
7. “I’m walking my dog this afternoon. Want to tag along?”
And of course, he’s going to have to meet your dogs eventually, right?
8. “I can’t stop thinking about you late at night.”
This might be a little provocative, but it’s safe to send him these texts when you start to get deeper into the relationship.
9. “I lost sleep because I couldn’t stop thinking about our kiss.”
Let him know that you can’t wait to kiss him again. Show him how crazy you are about his lips.
10. “Your arms and abs are driving me absolutely crazy.”
And of course, compliment him on the work that he’s been putting in the gym. Let him know that his efforts don’t go unnoticed.
