Before you’ve met a guy in person, it can be hard to tell what he’s really like. The good news, though, is that you can figure a lot about who he is and what he’s like simply based on the texts he’s sending you.
If he uses tons of GIFs, he might have some blocks around opening up.
Guys who utilize GIFs all day long instead of putting their thoughts into words might just have some trouble expressing their emotions. But he’s trying, sort of… just with a way that feels a bit safer for him.
His mind is somewhere else if he’s taking forever to respond.
That’s not to say that he doesn’t like you — just that his top priority is something else. Most people have their phones on them at all times, so he probably saw your text. He just didn’t feel inspired to return one back with any urgency.
If it feels like he’s doing it too much, he might be feeling a little anxious.
When a guy is texting you a little too frequently at the beginning, it can feel slightly pushy. He’s probably not trying to smother you, but he might have some anxiety about you not being interested. If he knew for certain that you were into him, he might relax a little.
An early morning texter is definitely into you.
He wouldn’t be chatting with you all hours of the day if he wasn’t crazy about you. When a guy texts you as soon as he’s up, it means you’re the first thing on his mind. He’s not just looking for a late-night booty call — he wants the real deal.
Creative emoji choices mean he’s down with the cute stuff.
It’s not that hard to throw an emoji on at the end of the text, but if he goes above and beyond to win your heart with goofy images, you can be sure he doesn’t take himself too seriously. This is a guy who’s willing to be cutesy with you and isn’t worried about being overly “manly.”
It’s not a good sign if he ignores your jokes.
A guy that’s into you will be tickled by your dumbest jokes and offer some sort of response. The guys who leave you hanging when you’d prefer to get a response might not share your sense of humor. Even a casual “haha” is better than a question mark or no reply at all.
Formal texters tend to be organized in life as well.
Or maybe they’re even a little controlling. Guys who don’t relax and let their guard down over text are often like that in person as well. They’re probably friendlier in person, but a little more reserved than guys who aren’t too focused on proper punctuation and capitalization.
If you can’t understand half his texts, you might not get his behavior either.
Everyone has met a texter that sends incoherent texts half the time, and generally they make some questionable or distracted choices with the rest of their life as well. Don’t be surprised if he can barely string a sentence together via text and then rambles on about nothing when you get together in real life.
If he’s only texting you late at night, he only wants nighttime fun.
It’s been said a million times over, but any man who reserves his texts for after dark is only looking to get you into bed. Unless he works the night shift, in which case a breakfast date might be in order.
It’s a good sign if he doesn’t respond to other people when he’s with you.
When a guy is constantly texting in your presence, it makes it seem like he’d rather be with another girl instead. But if he responds to you promptly when you’re apart and stays off his phone when he’s with you, you know who’s got his full attention.
