Everyone knows that technology has practically revolutionized the way people go about relationships nowadays. It’s so much easier for us to connect with one another despite the limitations brought about by distance. It is now possible to send messages to people thousands and thousands of miles away in a matter of milliseconds.
So it’s no secret that the phenomenon of texting has helped shape peoples’ relationships all around the world. It has become a vital tool of communication for many couples, and at times, it can either make or break a relationship.
Take the scenario of you casually engaging in sexual relations with a guy. Of course, there is some chemistry there, but you’re not entirely sure if you can elevate your relationship to something beyond sexual encounters. You also don’t want to put yourself in the position of having to ask where you are in the relationship.
Fortunately for you, if you text often, then there are subtle hints and signs that you can heed to know if he’s really interested in you or not. If he’s sending you these kinds of text messages, then he probably wants something more than just sex.
1. Boring everyday texts.
If he’s texting you about him having to do his chores or about that random book he’s currently reading, then you can bet he’s very interested in you. These are all practically useless information, but it’s his subtle way of giving you a glimpse into his life. If all he wanted to be sex, there was no point in revealing any of this to you.
2. Questions asking for advice.
A guy who is only interested in getting you underneath the sheets wouldn’t ever waste time asking you for advice on his problems. In fact, he wouldn’t even allow himself to get personal with you on any level. If he’s asking you for your thoughts and opinions about his life, then he wants something beyond sex.
3. Random texts.
If he’s constantly making an effort to initiate conversations with you even when he’s not asking for sex, then that’s a good sign that he’s very much interested in you. There would be no point in trying to talk to you about random topics of conversation if all he wanted from you was a night in the sack together.
4. Texts that ask for forgiveness.
No girl should ever have to put up with a man who is a constant screw-up. A man who says sorry a hundred times in a week is a man no girl should ever have to endure. However, a man who says sorry sincerely and wholeheartedly is really a man who is after a girl’s heart.
5. Serious and complex texts.
A guy who only wants a casual sexual relationship with you would not bother with engaging in deep and complex conversations with you about life and the universe. If he’s willing to pick your brain about complex issues and is also willing to open his mind up to you, then that means his interests transcend a physical relationship.
6. Good Morning’s texts.
A guy who only wants you for sex would not be sending you texts in the morning. These guys would only make contact with you if they were feeling thirsty for some action in bed. If all he wanted to do was to legitimately wish you a good morning, then that means he cares about you beyond the confines of the bedroom.
7. Texts about TV shows.
You didn’t ask for a play-by-play broadcast of what’s happening on that latest episode of Game of Thrones, but he’s giving you the details anyway. He’s just using it as an excuse to talk to you and bond with you over something. A man who only seeks sex wouldn’t invest the time and effort in making small talk with you.
These just aren’t necessarily the compliments that concern your physical beauty like your great body or flawless skin. If he compliments you about your personality and the way you live your life, then that means he is interested in you beyond your sexual potential.
9. Inquisitive texts.
One of the best ways to know if a man is truly interested in you is when he’s asking you random questions about your life and your personality. If all that was on his mind was your physical body, he really couldn’t care less about what your family is like or what your dreams and aspirations are. If he takes a genuine interest in your life, he wants more than just sex.
10. Funny texts.
There’s no reason a guy would want to make you laugh other than to make you like him. If he is constantly trying to put a smile on your face by texting you funny messages, then it’s likely that he doesn’t just want sex with you.
11. Happy Birthday’ texts.
If all a man asked of you was sex, he wouldn’t even make an effort to remember your birthday, let alone send you a message of greeting. If he texts you to greet you on your birthday, then sex isn’t the only thing on his mind when it comes to you.
