Have you wondered how to tell if a girl likes you over text? Admit it. You have been pondering this question for some time now.
It’s not that dating wasn’t hard enough without texting, right? But here’s the thing: Text conversations are an important aspect of any type of relationship these days.
Let me show you. You like a girl, so you text her. You go out together, you send an SMS. You are in a relationship, so you send each other an SMS!
Almost every romance begins with texting, as it has become the primary medium of communication these days. So once you dive into a “texting phase”, you’ll have lots of questions about the girl you’re texting.
One of the most important will be: How do I know if she likes me by text?
Yes, girls can seem complex and mysterious most of the time, but trust me, it’s not that hard to tell if she likes you over text.
You just need to look for the right signs and you will know if she likes you! If you notice most of the signs below when you text twice, congratulations, she’s TOTALLY in you!
How to tell if a girl likes you by text: 5 obvious signs that she’s inside you
1. You are not the only one starting the conversation
Remember, guys: if you’re the only one striking up a conversation ALL THE TIME, then there really is something wrong with your (potential) romance.
So if the girl you’re texting also makes sure to strike up a conversation every now and then, that’s a huge indicator that she likes you.
She wants to know what’s going on in your life, she wants to share things with you, and she wants to keep you posted on what’s going on in her life.
If the two of you initiate conversations, then your “texting phase” is reciprocated, and there is nothing you should worry about!
2. It responds in seconds or minutes
You’d be surprised how many girls refuse to respond the same second (or within minutes) of receiving a text because they don’t want to be seen as too available.
Let me make it easy for you: we don’t want you to think that we are sitting next to our cellphones all day long waiting for you to text us. We want to look busy, have an exciting life with a minimum of free time.
BUT if a girl answers you within seconds or minutes almost every time, it means she doesn’t care about those unwritten rules anymore.
She wants to respond to your text the second she gets it because she really loves you and doesn’t care how someone interprets her quick responses (or lack thereof).
However, note that things are slightly different if you are dating a girl who has an anxious mind, as most of the time she will think too much and worry about things (including responding within seconds).
3. She sends novel-length texts with many follow-up questions
If she’s texting you the length of a novel, that’s a good sign! A girl who isn’t interested in you would NEVER waste her time sending you long messages.
I am a girl. I have friends who are girls. So trust me on this one. If I don’t like a guy, I would never bother texting longer than necessary or continuing the conversation.
If she sends you long texts with follow-up questions, that means she’s making an effort to establish a meaningful conversation with you because she cares.
If not, she would send you a short sentence or a one-word response. Why? Because she obviously doesn’t care.
Besides sending you long text messages, she also won’t bother texting you. Whether on WhatsApp, SMS, Tinder, Instagram or Facebook Messenger, if she sends you a double text, know that she LOVES you.
If you don’t know it, double texting is considered one of the biggest sins in the dating world, so if a girl still decides to do it, you can only imagine how much she loves you.
4. Any change in your text style will not go unnoticed
In case you didn’t know, women notice EVERYTHING (and I really mean it all), especially when they love someone. So if you usually send her a morning message and one day for some reason you don’t, she’ll notice.
If you usually send her a lot of emoticons when texting and then stop, she’ll probably ask you if everything is okay.
A girl who loves you will notice every change in your texting style. She might step into the over-think zone and start asking herself the following questions: Why did he suddenly stop texting me? Should I text him or not?
5. She expresses herself in an impressive and interesting way
Wondering how to tell if a girl likes you by text message? When a girl isn’t really romantically interested in you, she doesn’t care about being fun, interesting, or getting your attention.
But if she really likes you, she’ll make sure to express herself in an interesting way. What does it mean?
This means that she will avoid repeating herself, and she will implement a lot of new elements in her texts. This is one of the obvious signs that a girl wants you to notice her.
For example, when I text a guy I’m interested in, I sometimes include the teddy bear emoji in our conversation and add a colon next to it, so it looks like a teddy bear texting him.
It looks like this: “You can tell me anything you want. I promise I won’t tell him. ”
Most guys find it cute and unusual, so our conversations are always fun because I want him to have a good time texting me, and I want to express myself in a funny way. Speaking of a win-win situation, right?
