When a guy texts you saying he’s bored, it can be difficult to know how to reply.
If you like him and you know he’s into you too, you might want to say something flirty.
However, if you have a crush on him but aren’t sure where he stands, you’ll want to keep the conversation going without coming across too eager.
Maybe you feel like he doesn’t put enough effort into your text conversations. In this case you’ll want to make it clear to him that you’re not just there to entertain him when he’s bored.
In this blog post we’ll go through the best ways to reply when a guy says he’s bored, no matter what the situation!
You have a crush on him
If the guy you’re talking to is your crush, you’ll want to keep the conversation going so you can get to know each other more and figure out if he likes you back.
The best way to do this is to ask him a question. You could ask him about something he’s interested in, or simply ask why he’s bored!
If you can’t think of something to ask him, you could suggest a TV show or movie for him to watch, tell him about what you’re doing, or suggest you play a game.
Try not to overthink it, just keep the conversation going by being engaging and fun!
He seems interested in you
If you’ve picked up on signs that the guy you’re texting likes you back, now is the perfect opportunity to take things a step further.
When he says he’s bored you should suggest that you meet up or, if you don’t want to put yourself out there too much, suggest that you chat over FaceTime.
Here are some examples of how you could reply:
– “Same, wanna hang out? 🙂”
– “Me too, let’s FaceTime!”
– “Awh 😔 I’m about to go out for lunch but we should hang out sometime”
You want to flirt
Saying something fun and flirty is a great way to get a guy’s attention.
If you want to respond in a way that’s a little flirty, you could say something like “I’m sorry to hear that but I’m glad you texted me”, “I can think of a few ways to entertain you”, or “hmm lets see if we can change that 😉”.
He’s not making an effort
If the guy you’re talking to isn’t putting that much effort into your conversation, it’s not up to you to keep the conversation flowing on your own.
You can reply with a simple, “I’m sorry to hear that” or “that’s too bad”.
If you want to make it clear you’re not going to entertain him, you could say “cool”, “you’re boring”, or just reply with an emoji “👍”.
This will let him know that you’re not interested in continuing the conversation if he’s not going to make more of an effort.
If you are trying to encourage him to put more effort in, you could reply with something like “I’m bored too, let’s talk about something interesting” or “let’s chat on video call later.”
He’s a good friend
If one of your guy friends texts you saying he’s bored, there’s a good chance he’s trying to find out if you’re free to do something with him.
If you’re not busy reply with something like “I’m sorry to hear that. Do you want me to come over?”.
This reply will let your friend know that you care about him enough to make an effort.
You could also say “I’m bored too, do you want to do something?”. This will allow your friend to suggest something fun for the two of you to do together!
Go With the Flow
There are a ton of different ways to reply when a guy says he’s bored over text.
If you’re not sure how to reply, it’s always best to go with something simple like “I’m sorry to hear that”, to put the ball back in his court.
However, if you feel he isn’t putting enough effort into texting you, or he’s implying that your messages are boring him, you don’t need to reply at all.
The most important thing is to respond in a way that feels right to you.
