How to Get a Guy to Chase You over Text ...

By Lyndsie

Playing flirty games 😗 with a guy you like is half the fun of dating, especially in the early stages. You don't want to keep playing games as things start to get more serious, of course, but in the beginning, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get and keep his attention. This is especially true over text messages 📱since so many guys seem to forget how to reply. Some of them even take great pleasure in making girls 👩 chase after them. Bummer, right? You can turn the tables, though. With these handy tips, you can actually get a guy to chase you 🏃 over text for a change.

1 Short, Sweet Texts That Don't Go on Too Long

performance, singing, performing arts, art, entertainment, KISS -- keep it short and simple. Guys tend to really only pay attention to the first few lines before a case of tl;dr syndrome sets in, so try to get to the point as quickly as possible.

2 Keep the Text Ratio Even, 1 for 1

person, profession, Calm, down, This won't overwhelm him, which is terribly important if you want him to pay attention. Moreover, he won't think that you're coming on too strong or texting too much. Much more importantly, you won't worry about that, either.

3 Leave Him Wanting More

person, hair, eyebrow, hairstyle, brown hair, This is why the first two tips are so important -- they keep things short, straight, and to the point. At the same time, keep the details to a bare minimum sometimes. Give him time, space, and opportunity to ask questions because, if you leave him wanting more, he most certainly will ask.

4 Don't Text Him Unless He Texts You

I know, that's silly, too, but it happens. Anyway, when you're trying to make him chase you through text instead of you texting him all the time, grit your teeth and put your texting thumbs on lockdown until he bites first.

5 Be Mysterious

person, singing, guitarist, bangs, singer, Intrigue someone and they'll be yours forever. You don't have to lie or pretend to be someone else to be mysterious. Just, again, keep some of the details to a bare minimum and don't volunteer everything about yourself right up front. Keep him guessing.

6 Ask Questions That Make Him Think

7 Show Your Wit via Text

hair, person, model, vacation, brown hair, Wit is a highly underrated trait. Polish yours to a sharp point and use it like a rapier when you text the guy who's caught your fancy.

It's a shame that anyone has to play chase-me-chase-me games, but it's a fact that they do, especially when they're embattled in the much bigger game of love. No harm, no foul -- it's also fun in the early days, plus you have to admit that it's tiresome to constantly chase after men to get them to communicate. Have you ever tried to get a guy to chase you over text? How did that go?
