Does the thought of sending flirty texts for him make you break out in a cold sweat? Is there a little voice in your head that says your attempt to be cute and sexy will totally bomb and you’ll never hear from him again? Would you rather become a nun than have to send a guy you like texts? If you’ve been out of dating game a while, texting may be a completely new concept to you as a way to get to know a guy. You may not understand how singles everywhere use this medium — along with emojis — to date and start relationships. Let’s read about What to Text a Guy after a Hookup.
What to text a guy after a hookup when you want to see him again
LAST NIGHT WAS BEYOND HOT.
this text speaks to the great time you had, without being too obvious about wanting to do it again. It’s most effective if you want to remain slightly mysterious about seeing them again.
YOU TOOK ME ON QUITE A RIDE LAST NIGHT.
This text is another good one for feeding your one-night stand’s ego. Everyone loves to be told what they do well, and sex buddies are no different.
I THOUGHT ABOUT THE OTHER NIGHT ALL DAY. CAN WE MAKE THAT HAPPEN AGAIN SOON?
What better compliment than letting someone know they were on your mind all day long? Tell your hookup you couldn’t stop thinking about them (brownie points if you’re extra specific), and start planning round two.
Wait for him to reach out. This is not a game. And as much as I would like to say if you want to text him text him, just wait it out for a day or two. Then you can reach out with a funny meme or GIF, but if he wants to see you, he will reach out.
“Thanks again for the other night, it was great meeting you.”
Sure, this sounds like what you would say in an email to someone you had a business meeting with, but if you have no intention of seeing this person again, especially not in a romantic way, what’s the big deal?
“That was a great one night stand.” Instead of going into this whole long monologue about how you don’t want to settle down and how he is great but you don’t see it working, just leave it plain and simple. If he catches on quickly he will likely say, yea it was, and you are in the clear.
What NOT to text a guy after a hookup
“I never do that.” Do not apologize for hooking up. There is nothing for you to be sorry for. You are a sexual being and you should celebrate that. If he thinks you’re easy or you’re afraid he will disrespect you from now on, forget him.
He isn’t worth your time. Hooking up with someone without a plan is nothing to be ashamed of. Own your sexuality.
“I think I left my _____ at your place.” Your keys, your retainer, your diaphragm, whatever, just don’t do this. This is a time-honored tradition that needs to die. Leaving something at his place as an excuse to see each other again is juvenile and not nearly as subtle as you think it is.
If you want to see him again, tell him. You don’t need to leave something behind on purpose. You are better than that.
