Book Excerpts: Tips for Texting Girls
There's a lot of information out there that proposes to teach you how to text a girl, but the great majority of it falls flat. Guys post transcripts that don't measure up; or, tout as effective those conversational styles that produce more reactions than results. Thus, you go searching for texting tips but end up with nothing all that useable.
If you've read the advice on texting women you'll find on this site, you know it's both a lot simpler than what you'll find elsewhere... and a lot more focused on generating results for your dating life. We're a lot less concerned with making women like you than we are with making women actually get together with you.
Hence, these tips for texting and this selection from my eBook How to Make Girls Chase: Every Tactic and Technique You Need to Get the Girl(s) of Your Dreams, focused on reviewing the most important things you'll need to know to be truly effective in your text conversations with women.
“Here are the general rules you’ll want to follow for texting:
- Keep texts short. Particularly for text messaging beginners, there is a great temptation to write long, detailed texts. Avoid this temptation as long texts are bad texts. Keep in mind the Law of Least Effort – your communication should be roughly the same length as what she is giving you in return, and ideally will be slightly shorter. She should be investing more time and effort than you if you are to set the frame that she is chasing after you.
- Avoid questions as first texts – especially boring questions. “How’s your day going?” “Hey Annie, what’s up with you?” “Feel like doing something today?” These are all examples of some of the worst texts you could possible send to start a text conversation. Don’t send these! Avoid anything similar to them, for that matter. They are weak, boring text questions that are bad for three reasons. The first reason is that they imply the sender has nothing better to do than thinking about the receiver and texting her (his life must be uneventful – and she also knows she has him now, too). The second is if the question goes unanswered, it’s negative precedent for investment, and the third being that it communicates the sender has nothing better to say than, “What’s up with you?” (i.e., no communication skills). Putting a little care into your texts will communicate positively to your recipients.
- Keep messages fun. Texting isn’t supposed to be serious. Either talk about fun, cool, interesting things going on with you, or tease your girl a little bit. She should enjoy getting texts from you and look forward to it – it should be a high point of her day. But, do not make them over the top fun or silly – you’re not trying to entertain, you’re trying to build a little rapport and set up a date.
- Keep your eye on the ball. The ball, in this case, being the date you’ll set up with her. You should have a direction you’re moving with your text messages – forward, towards a date. If you’re texting aimlessly or having long text message conversations, you’re doing it wrong – and moving too slow. And remember what happens with girls you move too slow with – they auto-reject. If you take too long texting or spend too much time beating the bush, you’ll lose girls. Get to the point quickly.”
Texting needn't be some exercise of frustration and futility, trying desperately to figure out what to text girls and struggling to find the perfect thing to say to get the result you want. If you use these simple texting tips to get your text game in gear, you'll be getting a lot more success with texting in the blink of an eye.
