(The same thing could be said for using “haha” as this is interchangeable with “lol.”) To lighten the mood again for something that seems serious, you might say to a woman, “Yeah, I just got home from the gym.

Take that “lol” out of the sentence, and it really just comes across as strange.

But when you keep it in, it shows that you’re just making a joke out of something boring. It’s so much easier to come up with your own as this has no context for a real conversation and would be useless if you tried to duplicate it.

Most high-status or quality girls have a lot going on in their lives; therefore, they tend to be busy a lot of the time and tend to take longer to reply back to your texts. If she takes, say, half an hour to reply back to your initial text, and you reply within a minute or two of her response, you come off as very needy.

(It’s either this, or they just want to appear busy and will take their time in replying.) This is okay. (You also come off as a bit creepy, like you were just staring at your phone like some kind of Fatal Attraction-type character, just waiting for her to answer you, and when she did, you answered her right away.) I’m telling you right now that, if you do anything resembling this, you will totally creep the woman out. Now I take my time in responding to a woman, and by doing so, I create intrigue and interest as well as more attraction. A simple rule is to take as long (if not longer) to reply to her texts as she takes to reply to yours.

You see it everywhere, from texting and driving to people out on dates, where one person is texting while the other is looking around, bored to death.

For me, waiting to hear back from people I had texted made me very restless.

You’ll want to appear as if you’re high status and busy as well and take your time in replying to her, too. You don’t want to appear too available as this makes you look needy. You’ve probably done this before already, thinking that if you didn’t reply to her fast enough, she might lose attraction for you or she might be upset with you because you take too long and that might ruin your chances with her. Come on, admit it, you’ve done this before; everyone has. It’s not a rule that should be followed to a tee, but it should be loosely followed, and if done, should put you into an attraction-building position.

I say loosely followed here because you don’t want to always text her eleven minutes after she texts you if she usually takes about ten minutes to text you. If she is in a pattern of texting you every ten minutes or so, and you have seven texts between you, take 15 minutes, 20 minutes, 8 minutes, 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 5 minutes, 13 minutes. They’re more of the natural timing texts between friends would be.

Really before even thinking about what to text a girl, timing is perhaps the most import part of any good text game.

Timing is the space in between texts that you and she take to reply back to each other’s messages.

So sometimes, when you say something she might take as being serious through text, if you just throw in a smiley face at the end, it can completely change the mood of the text. ” This message is a little too serious for a question like that.
