Last time we took a hard look at ways to not send flirty texts…and now we’re going to get started with the right way to send a flirty text to a new girl that you just met, say at a bar or party. Now, I’ll talk about timing when to send this text later…but for now, just understand that you should text relatively fast, within 24 hours for cold approach (ie meeting a new girl at a club) and up to 48 hours for someone you met through friends.
The point of this first text message isn’t to get into a long conversation–we’re going to send her something to cement her memory of us, and also gauge how interested she is right off the bat.
Alright, so it’s time to send the first text. What to say? There are two reliable ways to go…
1. Callback humor: any time you have a good flirty interaction with a girl–and if you’re not doing that, then fix that problem before you even worry about texting–you should have a good inside joke or two come up. For example, if you find out a girl grew up in Texas and used to ride horses…you can nickname her “cowgirl”. When you send a first text to her, you can use something like “hey cowgirl, better get to bed early…you need to feed bessie in the morning ”
The trick to good callback humor is to find something that playfully recalls your conversation. Don’t abuse it however, you should at most use it every other time or so when texting her. Too many repetitions will play the joke out.
2. The generic non-needy goodbye: this is a whole order of magnitude weaker than callback humor, but can be used if you have nothing funny lined up but need to make that first text. I’ve had good success with this tried and true: ”Nice meeting you, have a good night. ~(my name)”
It’s bland as all hell, but has an effective test built right in: if she won’t bite on this, then you didn’t get enough initial interest on the first meeting to come out for a date anyway. When she responds, don’t expect much…but the more emotion she puts in her response–such as extra emoticons or punctuation–the better a first impression you put on her. This will tell you where you stand with her, and you’ll then follow up with something better later on.
There are some of the basics for sending a flirty text to a new girl. The best approach is to use a little wit and nail some callback humor to her, as when you can reference the conversation in a funny way, it’s going to put her back in social mode and remembering meeting you. If you can’t do something flirty based on that, your next best approach is the generic–but not overly emotional–polite greeting. While that won’t build attraction, it will not cost if she’s already interested in you…and will also give you a good idea how likely she is to meet up when you text in the future.
