To get a girl to like you over text, 1) text daily, 2) ask the girl about her day, 3) re-affirm you interest, 4) cast a few compliments and flirtatious remarks, and 5) show excitement.

1. Text Daily to Keep a Girl Interested
Women like frequent communication. If we don’t hear from you daily, we assume you aren’t interested in us. So don’t play it cool and wait to send us a text. We need to hear from you every day. Yes – every day. At least every 3 days. So go ahead and text a girl daily if you are interested.
Simple texts to send a girl you like include:
- Good morning! Have a great day at work.
- I hope you had a great day. (to send at night)
- Have fun tonight! (For example, if you know she is going out to dinner with her friends.)
- Hope you had a great weekend and enjoyed the sunshine.
- How was tennis/soccer/volleyball/work today?
2. Ask the Girl about Herself to Get Her Interested
People like talking about themselves. If you want to be interesting and win people over, be interested in them. It's one of the top tips from "How to Win Friends and Influence People" from Dale Carnegie. Be genuinely interested in a woman’s interests, hobbies, work-day, and personal life, and you’ll win her over.
Below are a simple texts to send a woman to keep her interested, and to get the conversation going through text.
- How was your day?
- How’s it going?
- Did you do anything fun this weekend?
After you send the initial text, wait for her to respond. Then ask her another question to get her to elaborate.
For example, if she says, “My day was great! Super busy at work. How was yours?” You could respond, “Glad to hear it! My day was great. Do you have lots of projects going on at work right now?”
In this example, you are responding to her question, and then asking for more details about her.
Here’s another example. If she says, “Yes! Had a great weekend. Got brunch with friends.” You could say, “Awesome! Where did you go for brunch? Anywhere good?”
You don’t need to carry on a lengthy text conversation (I personally hate that!), but ask the girl follow-up questions to show your interest and keep her interested in you.
