Your dating life would have been so much easier if you had mind-reading abilities like Professor Xavier. It will save one the stress of shooting blank relationship shots at a pretty lady but alas, you are only human. Considering how hard it is to understand a woman’s feelings, it is easier to decode an artifact’s thousand-year-old Morse code. With the advent of mobile phones, getting to know someone has gotten more interesting especially a crush. Congratulations on getting her digits now comes the difficult part where many men chicken out. Which is getting the girl to fall head over heels for you but how do you know if a lady fancies you over text? Then here are the top ten signs.
1. INITIATES CONTACT
The very first sign that shows a girl likes you over a text is the frequency of starting a conversation. If she’s gorgeous and smart, chances are they are already legions of men sending her messages daily. For her to decide not to wait for your text and start up a chat then the green light is beaming brighter than Green Lantern’s ring. This sign doesn’t apply generally as some girls initiate talks via text just to request for favors.
2. CONSISTENT USE OF EMOTICONS
Emojis uniquely convey human expressions especially the hidden ones. This is a great sign that she likes you. Smileys such as kisses and hugs during chats are hints of affection. It’s a mechanism that girls have no control over. She could just type “lol” but if she went through the effort of searching for a specific emoji to express her feelings then you’re in luck. She likes you!
3. LIGHTNING FAST REPLIES
The easiest way to know if a girl isn’t interested in you is when she replies late. Of course, she may be busy at the time but when it turns out to be the norm every time you message her then it may be time to throw in the towel. If you chat her up and she replies almost as quickly and consistently, you brighten her world. If tables are flipped, you would never reply fast to girls you don’t fancy.
4. ASKS FOR YOUR PICTURE
Why would a girl ask for your picture? Are you a superstar artist or athlete? Most likely, you aren’t. More often than not, girls are always at the receiving end of picture requests from guys. It’s not like your image isn’t on your display profile or she doesn’t remember what you look like. Once you like someone, chances are you’d be yearning to see that special somebody. Hence, the picture request.
5. SENDS HER PICTURE
If you pick heads in a coin toss to know if a girl wants you. Do not be shocked if the outcome continues to give heads when it comes to this sign. Girls rarely send their photos to a boy unless they like you. Once she has a crush on you, she will start acting as if you are already dating her by sending you unsolicited pictures to keep you updated about her life or flirty images to spike your sexual thoughts. Nothing screams “I can’t stop thinking about you” than makeup-free images. When you start getting natural pictures of her at home, Christmas just came early for you.
6. ALWAYS COMMENT ABOUT YOUR STATUS
A lot of chat apps come with status update options. If you notice that she chats you about your online posts and activities. She’s hinting that she’s interested in your life, what you do and hobbies.
7. LENGTHY CHATS
How many times have you texted someone you disliked with over 100 words at a go? Unless you had serious issues to resolve. A girl will show that she’s attracted to you if her text replies are long almost every time you chat. Most girls will keep things short and drown you with one-word answers or responses if you’re not their type. She could have something better to do but invests her time in lengthy conversations with you? Cupid’s arrow must be at work.
8. TRIES TO IMPRESS YOU
Assume your crush isn’t crazy about sports. In the middle of texting, you claim to love soccer and she takes her time to reply to you with an intriguing soccer fact. Just know that she must have spent her ample time to research just to impress you. No lady goes out of her way to impress a guy if there’s no spark.
9. SEEKS YOUR ATTENTION
Ever wondered why lovers call one another baby? When you are attracted to someone else, your behavior changes. Unknowingly, most people start behaving like babies, craving care, and affection by seeking attention. When she starts asking for your opinion for even the most trivial things, just know your crush has started crushing on you too.
10. MIRRORS YOUR CHAT STYLE
Something is fascinating about a girl falling for a boy. She will naively copy her crushes’ movements. If she gazes at him checking his watch or stroking his hair, she will likely do the same. How does this relate to the world of texting? You will notice that a girl that finds you attractive will start chatting like you. It’s like magic. She may start to tease you, structure her tenses, and use terms akin to your sense of humor.
Don’t be stuck like a deer in the headlights in knowing the signs that a lady likes you. In extremely rare occasions, she will ask you out. You don’t want to be on the waiting end of a relationship proposal that may never happen, do you? That’s why these top ten signs exist to guide you in your dating life.
