You never want to be overdoing it with the emojis. Yes, a well-placed emoji can indeed add a lot of life, character, and color to a text message. But you still want your words to be the highlight of the show here. Don’t be flooding your text messages with emojis all of the time. It can be very off-putting.
Instead: Tell him about something interesting that happened to you on that day.
Bring up something interesting that is happening to you in real-time. You want to be able to give him these kinds of updates so that he feels like he’s in the loop. He is always going to want to be a part of your life in some exclusive capacity. This is the way for you to do it. Give him first-hand updates.
4. Mistake: Engaging in sarcasm while texting.
Sarcasm can be perfect if it works out for you. However, it can backfire massively when you’re texting. It’s tough to convey sarcasm through a text message.
Instead: Bring up a funny memory of the two of you.
This is always an excellent way to establish a sense of intimacy and camaraderie between the two of you. When you can show that you have an intimate history by bringing these memories up, then you make him more comfortable with you. Nostalgia can be a potent tool when used correctly.
5. Mistake: Making him wait too long before you reply.
You shouldn’t be playing these kinds of games with him anymore. If you portray yourself as someone who is just too hard to get, then he is going to become disinterested and discouraged. You have to show him that you are just as enthusiastic and as eager as he is about the prospect of the two of you getting together.
Instead: Express an interest in something he loves.
Always try to express a deep interest in the things that he is most passionate about. It’s going to let him know that you care about what makes up his personality as a human being. And it’s going to give you something to really talk about. It’s going to be able to keep him engaged and active in your conversation.
