A couple words at the beginning...
It is nice to have someone to talk with and exchange couple of texts per day, talking about things you like, some details from your life and any kind of other usual stuff. Sometimes we can read their messages in a wrong way and mispronounce it in a different way and do not get a real point of what they were trying to say to us. But all we care about right now is how to know if a guy somehow likes you through texting and how is he going to show you that. Text messages can be indicators of the level of interest two people have in each other. So today, you are going to find out if he really likes you and find out how he texts when he likes you. In this article ladies, we are going to find out 20 things to know about how guys text when they like you. Enjoy!
1. Does quick responses mean that he likes you?
Yes, yes, yes! I am sure most of us like to get a quick response and not wait for a whole day to get a text back. If you are talking to a guy and his responses are quick, chances are that he likes you. To be honest, guys are not that much into texting like we are, so it is a bit weird when you spend the whole day texting this guy, wondering if he likes you back. It is know that guys are lazy when it comes to texting, but if they like a person they are texting with there is no doubt that they will answer as quick as possible. Who knows ladies, maybe they are 24/7 on their phone waiting for you to text them back, like some of women do.
2. Guys ask personal questions
Guys do not care about certain details unless they are interested in someone or something. If you notice, through texting, that he has been asking personal question and that he is interested in getting to know you much more, that is a sign that he likes you. He wants to know more about you, so he can make sure you two have something in common. He will use any chance he has to ask you personal questions and give you a hint that he is interested. Sharing your personal information, experiences and other stuff with someone who cares gives you a good feeling that you have someone who actually cares about you.
3. Long texts
Most of us don’t like to send long texts, especially guys because they are way too lazy to write it, so they use short forms of texting. Sometimes they do not even text back if they are not interested but if you get a text that is longer than the usual one, girl stop right there, he likes you. If his texts are long and full of information, that is his way of keeping this conversation going, because he is interested in you and likes texting. Actually, he has time to text you this kind of a long text, I am sure he would not do that for his friends or anyone else, but you, it is all because he likes you. Let’s be real, why would any guy be sending a long text if he does not like you.
4.Texting quickly every day, all day
Cute ‘Good morning, beautiful’ text you get when you wake up is from him, so as ‘Goodnight’ text, that is his way of being in your mind when you wake and before you go to sleep. He definitely has a reason for sending this kind of a text to you: He likes you. You two spend the whole day texting each other, talking about various subjects and getting to know each other much better. Well, that is what people who like each other do. Keep in mind, sometimes all day of texting can become boring and one of you can lose the interest in it. So be patient with it and take care of what you are saying.
5.Randomly sent flirty emojis show that he likes you?
One of a sudden he texts you randomly heart or kiss emoji, sometimes smirk or wink while texting. Guys are not very best in using emojis, but if a guy likes you he will make sure that you know it through texting by using these emojis in a flirty way. Be honored for receiving these kinds of ‘flirty’ texts because guys will not send them to their friends — he does not like them; he likes you, am I right?
6. He randomly compliments you over text
Randomly, through the day you get a text from him saying how funny, cute or how smart you are. Stop right there, he would not do it without any reason. He obviously likes you, that is why he likes to send you cute compliments to make you feel good about yourself and show you his interest in you. Most people believe that guys do this randomly kind of compliments just to get in your bed but you can easily recognize if his intentions are going that way or not. Maybe his compliments sound insincere to you, maybe he is confused and does not know how to properly give a compliment without sounding weird. So do not judge quickly.
7. He talks about himself
Do not get this wrong if a guy texts you more about himself and his interests. He just wants you to get to know him better and maybe start liking him. However, if you texted him your mini biography, why wouldn’t he do the same in return? He obviously likes you and wants you to know that and to know more about him, so do not be surprised if you get this kind of a text randomly. Maybe he likes to have your attention and being in your company and, also, sharing more about him with you.
8. Texting about random stuff
Texting is not all about ‘Hey, how are you doing’ stuff, nope. Talking about random stuff and expressing your opinion on them is the best way to realize if the two of you have something in common. Maybe he just misses you having around and wants to send a random text to initiate a conversation. Talking about random stuff is much more interesting than talking about usual stuff every day of texting. He might like you even more after it. Who knows what these random text mean and where it could lead you to?
9. Do guys like you if they text you first?
"Guys should always text first" is a well-known sentence, but let me tell you something, that is not important at all. Girls can text guys first; there is no rule for it. But if you do not text guys first, sometimes they will get a feeling that you are not interested. But if a guy texts you first, he likes you and wants to start a new conversation with you. Guys won’t waste their time texting with someone, if they do not like them.
10. He likes to make plans
If he asks you about your plans for the week, it is because he wants to be a part of it and spend as much time with you as possible because, you know, he likes spending time with you. Which is great and you two will spend some time together and have a good time. He will probably take you out on a dinner date or somewhere else to enjoy your time together and have a good laugh. Maybe he will take you to amusement park to have a wonderful time and enjoy each other’s company. All of his actions show that he really likes you.
11. Doesn’t double texts you
He forgot to say something in a previous text but he does not want to double text you and be annoying and he respects your time when you do not use your phone. Sometimes it is okay to double text, but guys do not want to seem desperate and immediately show you their interest in you and maybe scare you with it. But if guys double text you, there is nothing to worry about. Do not get mad if your phone starts buzzing from time to time, that guy is really into you. Double texting is not that bad though. We all do that, right?
12. Having inside jokes
The best way to connect with each other is a good sense of humor. Having your own inside jokes that only the two of you understand is the most amazing things. Sometimes jokes can be lame, but no one else will be able to hear them except you two, so go ahead and be crazy and funny. You two can laugh for hours and do not judge each other and just have a good time. Plus, it is just you and him; your private things and the world is not included in it. That is the best way to build the intimacy between you two.
13. Cute nicknames he gives you
There is a chance you will get a cute nickname from a guy you are texting with. He will use it as much as possible to show his interests in you. It is cute and it is also a way of getting closer and being intimate with you. Yes, we all have nicknames for our friends, but having that special nickname given by a person who likes you is valuable. His nicknames for friends are nothing like yours that have some sort of meaning while he is texting you, feel special girl.
14. He appreciates your opinion and advice
Whenever guys have a doubt about something, they would love to get an opinion on it from person they like. Also, if guys had a rough day at work or had an argument with their mates or family, having someone to share their problems with and having a support from a person they like shows your support. And that is what they need right now, support, understanding and a good advice. Or when he is going somewhere and asks you for an outfit suggestion. He really appreciates the amount of support you are giving him through your honest opinions and advice.
15. Texts like ‘If I was there...’
Getting a text with this in it may be weird if the next part is something sexual. But instead of it he suggest what you two would be doing if he was there with you, something like watching a moving, playing games, going out and etc. That just shows his intention on spending time with you and getting closer to you. He would not be doing this if he didn’t like you at first. It is a bit different than actually making plans with you.
16. Perfect spelling and punctuation
This one might be odd but let’s be honest the fact that women like to get full sentences instead of short forms of texts. But if he puts an effort by typing full and correct sentences and has perfect spelling and punctuation that means that he is trying to impress you and that you are worth of doing it. Or maybe he is just a grammar Nazi, but it doesn’t matter. The only thing that matter is that he likes you and that he is trying everything that is possible to show you that and impress you as much as he is able to.
17. Asking for a photo of you
No, I’m not talking about ‘that kind of photos’ some people like to send to each other. I’m talking about your selfies that he likes to see when he is not around you. He likes to look at your photos and enjoy in your beauty, that is why you’ll be getting lots of compliments from him. He likes you the way you are, so do not try to impress him even more by putting on tons of makeup. Natural look is the best and I’m sure he likes it too. Having your photo on his phone is the way of feeling your presence with him wherever he is. So stop what you are doing for minute and send him a cute selfie. I am sure you will get one in return.
18. Random texts
You are at work, school or just somewhere out and all of a sudden you get a random text from him without a reason, you may think. Actually, there is a reason and it is you. Yes, they do that because they like texting with you and, of course, because he likes you. Well, it is just his way of having him on your mind for the rest of your day. Guys do not usually do this, they barely text their friends, yes that is right, but if they like you this would not be any problem for that.
19. Guys texting ‘I like you’
Yes, this also happens. You may get secret hint that he likes you when he texts ‘Oh God, you’re so funny, I really like you’. If he says that, he really means it. He would not say that just because he has, he’d say it just because he really likes you and this is the best way of giving you a hint. Some of us stop replying after receiving this kind of a message because it is weird but it's also not. Believe me, he likes you; he really, really likes you. Do not stop texting him after this until you’re completely sure of his feelings towards you. Let’s be real here, if you hadn’t liked him back why would you be still texting him?
20. Drunk guys, honest texts
Whenever guys are drunk they have courage to say something they would not say while sober or even text it to a person they like. So, do not panic if you get an honest text where he says he likes you. Eventually, he will forget about that text sooner than you think but when he gets sober it is going to be fun. Hit him with a text the next morning asking him how’s he doing and he might take a look of his previous sent messages in your conversation. He might try to ignore it but you both know the truth now. There is also a chance that he will confirm the text from the previous night. He likes you, a lot.
Something for the end...
Women are complicated, they say, yes we are but face the fact that guys are too. Texting someone and not being able to see their actual facial expression, while typing some of the messages you are about to receive, is hard. Especially, when you have to figure it out the real meaning behind guy's messages, if a guy really thinks everything he has been saying to you or not. If your guy does some of the things that are listed above, then he likes you. There is no doubt about that, so stop asking yourself if he really likes you or not because he does. Enjoy your texting and see how the things between you two are going to evolve. Good luck with the guy!
