Getting a flirty text message from a guy can be exciting, fun and maybe sometimes a bit terrifying 🙈.
Flirting over text is completely different to flirting in person.
Without being able to use touch, tone of voice or body language you are relying on only the words you type to show him that you’re sassy, funny, smart and totally into him!
It can be really difficult to know how to reply to a flirty text message from a guy.
If you way over think it and spend too long coming up with something to say he might think you’re not interested.
So to help you out I’ve come up with loads of examples of different ways to reply to every kind of flirty text message from a guy.
How into him are you?
Okay so first things first, how you should reply to a flirty text from a guy completely depends on how much you like him.
If you’re really not into him its unfair to lead him on in any way. A few texts can turn into weeks of messaging and it becomes more and more difficult to let him down without hurting his feelings.
You need to be nice but direct and make him aware that its not going to go anywhere.
However, if he’s being inappropriate or making you feel uncomfortable in any way its completely okay to ignore the text and block his number.
How to respond to unwanted flirty texts
Thank him for the compliment but let him know you’re not interested
– “Hey, I appreciate that, but I don’t see us that way.”
– “Thanks but I’m sorry I don’t feel that way about you.”
– “Thanks but I just see you as a friend.”
Let him know you’re taken
– “Haha thanks but my boyfriend isn’t going to like you saying that.”
– “Not much, I’m going to my boyfriend’s place for dinner later.”
– “Thanks but I’m seeing someone at the moment.”
Shut him down
– “I don’t think that’s appropriate.”
– “Ehh I don’t have anything to say to that.”
– “You’re making me feel uncomfortable.”
