Sexting. That magical time in a person’s life where you share intimate details with the entire iphone cloud (and if you’re in high school, don’t sext EVER. Never ever ever ever ever).
But just like the real thing, some guys are great at it, and others are, well, douchebags.
Don’t be that guy.
Lesson of the day: Light Humor + Sincere Compliments = Happy Lady
Think about the woman you’re trying to sext. Unless she’s your POA, you think she’s pretty awesome, right? Chances are, at least 10 other guys have thought the same thing, and ALL OF THEM have tried to get her to send a naked selfie. Your job is to be different from the run of the mill, “Send me a pic” that she hears from everyone else. You’ll be different from them if you make her FEEL (emotionally! get your head out of the gutter) better than they did.
For starters, here is a short list of all the things women think when they get the inevitable, “Send me a pic,” “Send me something naughty,” “I wanna see your body,” “Pic,” “Show me more,” etc etc etc:
“Omg, is he serious right now?”
“Is he joking? Why did he think this was ok?”
“Uh….wow. I kinda like this. But I don’t know what to say!”
“Oh. My. God. He likes/loves me. I just know it”
“Gross. This guy is so annoying, why am I texting back right now? Whyyyyy?”
“What if he’s showing this conversation to his friends? What if he posts it on facebook or twitter?”
“If I sent him a pic, would he save it for blackmail? Is this smart? I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t be taking pictures”
“Hmmm. He is so hot! Play on playa. Let’s see what happens now…”
Remember, be different. HUMOR + SINCERE COMPLIMENTS = HAPPY LADY
Here are some examples of excellent sexts or almost sexts:
If you’re stuck for what to say, use these as a guide. And the compliment part? If I need to explain this to you, you’re already a douchebag.
To make the best impression, use what God gave you…
And don’t be a douche.
