12 Flirty Texts To Send When You’re Away From The Person You Love

Long-distance relationships are hard. Usually, the best way to keep them going strong is by making sure to keep the love alive, especially through FaceTime and text messages. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are 12 flirty texts you can try out right now.

  1. This trip is nothing without you here. If you’re on a trip, or out for a few weeks in a different state for work or a family obligation, this text will show them that you’re just not having a fun time without them. It can also be pretty meaningful to “take them along” on the trip with you, by sending photos and videos of the things you’ve seen. If you make them part of it, you won’t feel so alone.
  2. If we can survive this, we can survive anything. This text tells them that you’re all in. The one way to make sure a long-distance relationship doesn’t permanently stay that way is to make future plans as to when you’ll be in the same place. It may be a week, or it may be a few years — but having something to countdown to will make your relationship easier.
  3. I can’t wait until I can hold you again. If you like to cuddle, you may really miss having them right next to you during the night. This will make them miss you a ton. If you want to get extra flirty, take a few selfies in bed.
  4. I always knew I liked you, but it’s true — absence is seriously making the heart grow fonder. Sometimes, you just don’t know how important a significant other is until they’re no longer there. If this relationship didn’t start out as long-distance, you’ve probably been feeling the pain even more.
  5. My battery is running low, but I had to tell you I miss you and love you before my phone dies. Not having a charger is a real problem. By sending them this, it’s telling them that you prioritize both your partner and relationship more than anything else you can find on your phone. Which, you should — Instagram is great, but it doesn’t make a loving partner.
  6. This is hard, but you make it worth it. If you were lukewarm on the guy, you probably wouldn’t be down for the relationship. But you’d rather be apart from your boyfriend for a few months if it’s the only way to have him in your life at all. Tell him how you feel, and remind him that you’re loyal.
  7. I seriously miss you more than words. If you’re not good with flirty and sexy texts, this is an honest one that says it all. You can’t even find the words to describe how much you miss your boyfriend. He’ll feel appreciated when this message arrives.
  8. I wish I could hug you and tell you how proud of you I am. If your significant other got a promotion or overall good news, you’ll want to find a way to share his joy from a distance. Being proud of your partner’s accomplishments is sexy. When he succeeds, you both succeed.
  9. I’ve been wearing your old sweatshirt since it smells like you. All alone, this sounds a bit creepy. But send it with a cute snapshot and he’ll be overjoyed. The way guys smell can be intoxicating, and sometimes sniffing on laundry (clean laundry, of course) can help. Scent is a powerful sense.
  10. What are you wearing? 😉 It’s a classic flirty pick-up line. If he’s in a good mood, he’ll love to continue the conversation from here. Just make sure to lay on the compliments. That shouldn’t be too hard if you really do miss him.
  11. Let me know if you want a visitor. I’ll come over in a heartbeat. Depending on the situation, he might welcome your suggestion of buying tickets and visiting. If he’s going away to school and has some free days ahead, this is a great time to be together. If he’s away because he’s taking care of a sick relative, know that you might not be the top priority when you show. He’ll still be happy to see you, but you may be on your own in terms of travel plans.
  12. I’ve smiled all day thinking about you. Recite a funny private joke, or tell him something that reminded you of him. He’ll love knowing that he’s been on your mind.
