When he does this, it shows that he is probably excited to hear from you!

Obviously, don’t read into it too much if he doesn’t text back immediately, life does happen.

Does he start conversations? Or just respond to your texts? If he initiates the conversations, then that’s a sign that he likes you!

No matter what your day may have been like, he wants to be the last thing that you think about before you go to sleep. 


Of course this is his way to connect one last time before the day is over.

A simple… talk to you later or an emoji, something that ends the conversation.


 And if he really is busy he will let you know so you won’t be reading anything into his temporary non communication.


12. You make concrete plans


Again, you are not left hanging and wondering when you will see each other again. He wants to have something planned and really it is something that he wants to look forward to.

Sometimes people want to make plans but they are hesitant.

Let him know that you LIKE knowing when you are getting together so that you can plan.

Then it is up to talk and confirm it with you!


13. He Texts you what is happening in his life


He wants to bring you into his life. He texts you when he is busy with work or out with his friends. You can tell that he wants you to feel a part of what he has going on.


By the same token, he wants to know how you are spending your time. He may ask questions without trying to be nosy to find out more about what you are doing when you are apart.


14. He doesn’t keep you wondering if he likes you


All of the texts above show interest, interest in YOU. But it is likely that he will also just tell you. “I like spending time with you,” or “I really like you.”

Everyone is different, but in the beginning the way you need to go by the way he acts.  If he texts most of the way that we mention above, you can be sure that he likes you.

He texts when he wants something


He initiates only when he wants something from you. There is nothing wrong with someone asking for help, but if this is the norm, then he is using you.


He doesn’t bring you into his life


You have to ask what he is doing or what is going on, he doesn’t offer that information. If he is closed off to having you be part of his world, then that tells you he does not want you to be part of it.


He offers to “hang out”


He usually does not make plans in advance but will ask you to do something last minute at his convenience. This is unacceptable and you should not be available for him. This is not how you should be treated.


You spend more time texting than being in person


If he doesn’t make time for you, don’t invest any of your time or energy into him.

Never invest more into the relationship than he is willing to, especially in the beginning.


His words don’t match his actions


If he tells you that he likes you or wants to spend time with you, BUT DOESN’T MAKE TIME, then he does not want to really be with you.


When he does make time, is it last minute and on his terms?  You already know the answer to this if you answered yes, say goodbye!

2. Be playful


Show your fun side. Being a little flirty can definitely keep him thinking about you. Simple little playful texts keeps things interesting. Keep your texts in line with where you are in the relationship.

Don’t be too aggressive or flirty if this is the very beginning of the relationship, he needs to know that he has to earn your attention.


3. Let him initiate


Letting him initiate is very similar to the old school “chase.”  Don’t underestimate how alluring it can be. Let him pursue you!


4. Do not be too available


Do not text back immediately. You have a life and are very happy living it. Even though you may have been waiting for him to text you, keep your cool and text back in a little bit.


A little mystery is just fine, let there be a little effort, even if its just texting.


5. Ask open ended questions


This helps to get rid of the dreaded single yes or no answers. You want to say or ask something that requires an actual response that is more than one word.

Wait for his response before texting back again. 


6. Be interesting


If you want people to be interested in you, then be an interesting person for yourselfHave hobbies, learn new things, be curious. 


This will make your life more full and you will have lots of interesting things to talk about. Finding things that you love to spend time on helps you become the best version of yourself.


7. Keep it short & sweet


Keeping your texts to the point and with a purpose can make it easier to converse by text. This isn’t the place for long, complex conversations.


 Also complaining does not come off well in a text, so keep anything like that for an in person conversation.
