Naturally, texting doesn’t come equally easily to all guys. Some simply prefer the personal experience of talking to someone face to face or over the phone and are better suited to it, especially if they’re older sugar daddy types. However, if a sugar daddy’s genuinely interested in connecting with beautiful, vibrant sugar baby, he’ll need to get used to texting sooner or later.
However, being a good texter is about more than simply texting someone back quickly enough. There’s an art to doing it well and ensuring the lucky lady on the receiving end of your texts is enjoying the experience. Here are some tips to get you started.
1. Text the way you talk.
Men who don’t text much or feel as comfortable communicating that way often feel intimidated by the fact that it’s different. They’re worried there’s a particular way they need to communicate over text, and they’re concerned that they won’t pick it up naturally.
However, the secret to being a good texter is that there is no secret. Just text the way you would talk. Look at how you communicate with your closest family and friends for inspiration.
2. Text her at the right times.
Texting and instant messaging are more flexible than phone calls in that you’re not demanding the person’s immediate attention. But some times of day are better for texting than others. For instance, texting too late at night can give a woman the impression you see her as a booty call.
You might also want to avoid texting her when you know she’s at work or otherwise engaged. However, everyone’s different as far as when and how they like to text. Try following her lead a little to get a read on her texting style and follow suit.
3. Show that you care about her life.
Great text conversations are best when they’re kept light, upbeat, and enjoyable. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t also terrific ways to connect with a young woman you’re interested in. You can best do this by showing interest in her life.
Do you happen to know she just got back into town after visiting family? Ask her how it went. Is today the day of a huge presentation at work or school? Shoot off a quick text that morning to wish her luck. So many guys just want to talk about themselves, so even simple questions like these can go a long way.
4. Memes, GIFs, and emojis are your friends.
Fun little tools like these are as popular as they are for a reason. They’re great ways to add humor and wit to a conversation. They’re also super handy ways to respond or react when you don’t quite know what else to say.
So definitely use them, especially if you see she likes to use them. They’re a great way to show your humorous side and keep your side of the conversation from becoming too dry.
5. Know when to open up.
Vulnerability is really never easy, even when you’ve been sugar dating someone for years and feel incredibly comfortable around them. And if texting isn’t your communication method of choice, it can be especially hard to open up that way.
But managing to do it anyway – especially when the lady on the other end has just opened up to you – is an effective and important part of getting to know her better. Just think about what you’d say if this were a conversation you were having in person, and do your best to carry that over into the text format.
6. Don’t overdo it.
Texts at their best are short and sweet. So don’t be that guy who types out and sends enormous walls of text to people. At best, the other person is only going to skim them, so you risk them missing something important you may have said.
You don’t want to flood your girl with messages, either. If you text her and she doesn’t immediately reply, assume she’s busy and will get back to you as soon as possible. Don’t keep sending message after message. You run the risk of coming across as clingy instead of cool.
7. Have fun and enjoy yourself.
One of the easiest ways to become a chronically bad texter is to force yourself to do it because you feel like you have to. Instead, why not try embracing the medium for what it is and learning to have a little fun with it?
Texting is convenient, casual, and presents its own unique opportunities to get to know someone. And best of all, it’s one more way to connect with a fascinating woman you’d love to get to know better. So get into it because you want to and welcome the chance to try something new. You’ll be glad you did.
