4 Ways to Impress a Guy Through Messages

So you just met a guy you like and you want to make a good impression? Back in the day, you would've been stressing over what outfit to wear or how to do your hair. While those things are still important, times have certainly changed! In today's world, text messages and online chats are your first opportunity to make a good impression. The messages you send and the things you say will be a huge reflection of who you are when talking to a new guy. It's important to know how to look good through messaging. You'll need to master certain tips and techniques to get the guy you're chatting with to be interested in you.

Here are four tips and tricks for impressing a guy through messages:

1. Flirt!

This one should be obvious. If you want to let this guy know that you're interested in him, you'll need to master your flirtation skills. You're probably wondering how exactly you're supposed to flirt through a text message… Well, the same way you would in person! Joke with him. Make playful jabs at him. Be sarcastic (but not too much). The only difference between flirting through messaging and in person is that your tone doesn't translate well through messages. You might make a joke, and he won't realize you're joking. This is where emojis become your best friend. A winking smiley emoji can be the difference between a playful joke and a rude remark.

2. Keep it Brief

When you're chatting with a guy through texting or messages, keep it short. Don't send him long paragraphs that detail every aspect of your day. You'll just bore him to death. Don't overload him with ten texts in a row. He'll think you're crazy and needy.  Keep your messaging short and simple. Ask him questions about himself. Let him do the talking. If he wants to know something about you or your life, he'll ask. Keeping it brief will keep him curious, and also keep him from getting annoyed with you.

3. Don't Seem Desperate

This is an important one. Nothing sends a guy running away like desperation. Even if you are desperate, don't look desperate.  You need to play hard to get through your messages. Don't let him think that you're waiting for his reply or that you're thinking of texting him all day. Let him think you don't need to speak to him. You can achieve this by spreading your responses out. If he texts you, don't respond immediately. I know it can be hard, but wait a few hours. This will keep him guessing. This will also keep you from looking desperate. Plus, it creates some mystery about you. If you're not always responding to him right away, you'll have him wondering what you're up to.

4. Send Pictures

A picture is worth a thousand words, right? No, I don't mean dirty pictures. (Unless both parties are interested and consenting to that…I'm not here to judge.) I mean interesting or intriguing pictures. Send him a picture that will spark a conversation. This could be something funny you saw that day or a cool place you visited. Send him a picture of something you think he'd like to see. It could be of something you guys talked about before, or just something that reminded you of him. Either way, a picture breaks up the monotony of small-talk. He'll be glad to see he received a picture, rather than the usual “How was your day?”

The Basics

To keep it simple, here are some guidelines to follow when trying to impress a guy through messages:

  • Don't chat too much, too long or too often.
  • Make sure this guy does actually want to speak to you.
  • Send interesting pictures.
  • Don't be vulgar or offensive.
  • Stay away from drunk texting. (This is just asking for embarrassment.)
  • Make it personal.
  • Don't bore him.
  • Be yourself!


10 Foolproof Ways to Impress a Guy

It's always exciting to find someone you're interested in and want to start a relationship with. The only scary part is seeing if they're interested in you too. Impressing a guy that you like isn't as hard as you think! While it can be a little nerve-wracking and stressful, there are some foolproof ways to have the guy you like falling at your feet in no time.

Here are ten simple ways to impress the guy you like:

1. Don't Worry, Be Happy

I once saw a bedazzled throw pillow that said, “Happy girls are the prettiest girls”. This isn't just a cute phrase for home decor; there's some truth to it. A woman with a smile on her face is instantly attractive. Her happiness and carefree aura pull people towards her. Someone who appears to be happy is more approachable and easier to talk to. So, if you're looking to catch a man's eye, put a smile on your face. He will gravitate towards you quicker than you could imagine.

2. Be Confident

Confidence is sexy on anyone and everyone. Men love a woman who is confident in herself. If you want to impress a guy, show him that you're confident. Even if you're feeling insecure and unsure, show that you have confidence. Taking pride in your appearance can help you to show more confidence. Put together a nice outfit or try out a new hairstyle. You'll be walking around with your head held high, and definitely be turning guy's heads.


3. Don't Admire His Friends

This might seem like a strange one, but it's important. Of course you want to like this guy's friends, but you don't want to like them too much. You can be friendly with his friends, but if you're too friendly, he might think you're interested in them instead of him. Another huge mistake is calling one of his friends “cute” or “hot”. Never do this! You may be tempted to do this, to make him show a little jealousy, but it will hurt you in the long run. He'll think you want his friend over him.

4. Have Common Interests

Having things in common will not only impress a guy, but also give you something to talk about. Take notice of things that he's interested in and learn a little about them. For instance, find out his favorite musician and listen to some of their music. He'll be impressed when you mention your favorite songs by them, and he'll be way more interested in you since you have a common interest.

5. Show Off Your Skills…in a Subtle Way

To impress a guy, you'll want to show him what you're good at. Maybe you're great at cooking or playing a certain sport. Show him what you're good at, but don't tell him it's what you're good at. For instance, invite him over to try a dish you're rally great at making, but don't tell him how all your friends rave about it. Let him be surprised when he tries at. He'll see for himself that you're a talented individual who has a lot to offer.

6. Don't Brag

This tip goes along with the last one. We know you're a talented girl with a lot to offer, but don't brag about it! Men cannot stand women who brag about their accomplishments or throw their achievements in everyone's face. Be modest and humble in your behavior. Once he gets to know you, he'll naturally see your accomplishments and he'll be beyond impressed.

7. Accept Help

Guys love to feel like they're helping a woman. If you want to impress him, let him help you out with something. Even if it's something you know how to do! For example, tell him you need some help fixing something in your home. Not only will it give you an excuse to invite him over, but it will also make hi feel good to think he helped you out.

8. Don't Criticize Him

When you're trying to impress a guy, pick your battles. Don't criticize every little thing that he does. (And if he does that many things that bother you, maybe he's not the right guy for you anyways.) If you're constantly nagging him about different aspects of himself, he'll quickly be turned off and want to limit his time around you.

9. Use Social Media Wisely

Social media is a useful tool. You can use it to make yourself look really appealing to a guy that you're trying to impress. Use social media to your advantage by uploading good pictures of yourself, or pictures of you doing fun things. This will make you more attractive to him and show him that you do fun things. You can also use social media to flirt with him by “liking” his pictures or posts and leaving cute comments.

10. Keep Some Mystery

Guys are intrigued by women who are mysterious. Don't be an open book right away. Keep some things to yourself and don't explicitly tell him everything you feel or think. Keep him on his toes! If you keep some things to yourself, he'll be dying to find out more about you. Wondering what you're really like and what your life is like will keep him endlessly interested.
