Are you wondering what it means when a guy sends you a song? Or how you should respond when a guy sends you a song over text?
In this article, we’ll take a look at what it means when a guy sends you a song, and how you should reply depending on situation!
What it means when a guy sends you a song
Before we can discuss how to reply when a guy sends you a song, we need to decode the reason behind him sending you a song in the first place.
Here are some questions to ask yourself to help you figure out what the intent was behind him sending you a song.
– What’s the genre of the song?
– Did he send a music video?
– What are the lyrics about?
– Has he sent you a song before?
– Is he singing the song?
– Did he write the song himself?
Let’s dive a bit deep into these questions, what the answers mean, and how and they will impact how you should reply!
The type of song
The type of song a guy sends you is important. Is it hip hop? Is it rock? Is it country music?
When a guy sends you a song, there’s always the possibility that he just thinks it’s a great song and wants you to listen. Theres a higher chance of this if the song is something upbeat and lively.
However, if he sends you a slow song or romantic ballad, you can bet he likes you as more than just a friend.
The music video
If a guy sends you the music video of the song, the storyline of the music video might give you some clues as to why he’s sending you the song.
If the music video is about a couple, or love in general, he probably has a crush on you.
Make sure to pay attention to the lyrics when listening to the song.
If they hint or even mention some kind of romantic love, then there’s a good chance he’s into you and is trying to see where you stand!
He’s a serial song-sender
If a guy is known to send songs to all of his friends, then getting sent one from him probably doesn’t mean much.
If you’re not romantically involved, it may just be a sign of friendship, especially if he loves music.
He’s the one singing
If he’s the one singing the song, whether it’s a popular song or one he’s written himself, then he definitely cares about you… maybe even loves you.
Don’t worry or freak out if you don’t feel the same way. Read on to find out the best way to respond no matter what the situation.
How to Respond When a Guy Sends You a Song
The way you respond will depending on your romantic involvement, or desired romantic involvement, with him. Let’s go over each scenario.
You have a crush on him
When a guy sends you a song, it’s very likely that he has a crush on you.
If you like him too, try not to freak out. You need to reply in a calm collected way, while also letting him know how you feel.
Start by saying what you like about the song. Focus on the lyrics and the melody.
You should also compliment him if he’s the one singing or if he wrote the song himself.
Then tell him how the song makes you feel. You could say it makes you feel special, it makes you miss him, it makes you want to see him, or something else.
If you’re not good with words you could send him a romantic song back. Just remember, guys aren’t always good at taking hints so you should tell him how you feel at some point.
If you guys share a passion for music, this can be a fun and flirty way to communicate.
You only like him as a friend
Friend zoning can be hard.
In this case, try to defuse the situation by focusing on the non-romantic aspects of the song.
Was there a funny lyric? Was the beat catchy? Try making a non-romantic connection with the song. Maybe you heard it in a supermarket the other day, or on the radio and thought it was good.
Briefly mention this, then send a text changing the subject.
You don’t like him at all
If you don’t want to be romantically involved and you don’t even consider him a friend, then why respond at all?
The only case where this might be more tricky is if you see him regularly. But if you do bump into him, you can always say you’ve been busy so you haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet. Maybe your phone speaker or headphones broke. He should get the hint.
However, the best option might just be to tell him the truth. Mention how it was a nice thought, but the song wasn’t your favorite, or you didn’t resonate with the lyrics.
If he’s still not getting it, don’t be afraid to tell him that you’re just not into him.
