Fun and easy-going texts

  • What’s going on in your life today?
  • [Their name] is such a unique/pretty/interesting name. Is there a story behind it?
  • Please, tell me something interesting to help me pass the time on my morning commute!
  • Okay, I took the plunge and texted you first. Now, I’ll be anxiously waiting to hear back.

Pre-date texts


If you’ve scheduled a date with a potential partner, don’t give them radio silence until the big night! Instead, keep the intrigue alive with these flirty texts:

  • Are you the kind of person who always looks at the menu before going to a restaurant? Or is it just me? Because I already need help choosing between the [dish option 1] and the [dish option 2.]
  • Okay, I’m thinking about my outfit options for tonight and I need to ask: do you prefer refined and classy or a little bit wild?
  • When I see you, what song do you recommend I have playing in my head?
  • I don’t want to set expectations too high, but I hope you’re ready to live out a real-life rom-com. I’ve arranged for all the cliches and there will be voiceovers.

Post-date flirty texts

Did you enjoy an unforgettable date with your special someone? Let them know you want to see them again with some of these post-date texts:

  • Is it just me, or did that date go by way too fast?
  • If you need me, I’ll just be spending the entire day replaying the best moments of our date.
  • I feel like you should have warned me that you were going to show up looking that good. Like, I needed a little bit more preparation.
  • If you were to put together a highlight reel of that date, what moments would you include?
  • Let’s settle this once and for all: Is it okay to text you the day after our date? Because here I am, texting you the day after our date.
  • Describe our last date using only emojis.
  • I realized that I could not describe any details about our date last night. I was way too focused on how beautiful you looked.
  • Okay, I’m ready for my performance review. Give it to me straight: how did I do last night?

Thought-provoking texts

Want to breeze past the small talk and start flirting on another level? Here are some flirty texts with a philosophical twist:

  • What really is chemistry, and why do we seem to have so much of it?
  • Do you think in a parallel universe, you and I could be having a totally different relationship? Like, what if we had gone to a different restaurant? Or I had ordered the chicken instead of the lasagna?
  • What are your biggest green flags on a first date?
  • What’s the easiest way to make you smile? I might be taking notes so I can try them out in person
  • What is the most romantic action movie?

Personalized texts

To be honest, there are a lot of copy & paste texts that sound well, copy & paste. So, keep it personal with some of these conversation ideas:

  • Their pictures
  • Something interesting in their bio
  • Whether they have pets
  • Their hobbies

Steamy texts

Hello, what is a flirty text exchange if it doesn’t make you blush? If you’re feeling comfortable, try out these flirty texts with a naughty edge:

  • I bought a new lipstick that is supposed to be no-smudge. Do you want to help me test it out?
  • I’m going to try an experiment. I have two different kinds of perfume/cologne and the next two times you see me, I want to know which one is more irresistible.
  • Let’s set the record straight: Is showering together great or overrated?
  • Do you think I can make you blush with just a text?
  • Do you prefer sweet or spicy? And no, I’m not talking about food!
  • What is the sexiest place in the world to wake up? And when are we going?

Flirty texts: do’s and don’ts


We’ve provided some fun examples of flirty texts you can send to someone you’re dating or planning to meet. But inevitably, you’ll have to take the reins and keep the flirty conversation going! Here are some do’s and don’ts to help:


  • Keep things light. Flirting is always supposed to be fun, so keep things light and breezy. Don’t be afraid to gently tease, hype yourself up a bit, and use positive humor.
  • Personalize when you can. One of the most powerful things about flirting is that it deepens the connection between you and the person you’re getting to know. So, as much as you can tailor your flirty texts to them, such as complimenting them on their sense of fashion, winning smile, or even choice of restaurant, the better.
  • Use emojis. If your flirting style is playful and even a touch sarcastic, emojis are key! They will ensure that your conversation stays positive.


  • Go negative. Saying something like “My last date was a dud, I hope this one is better,” is not flirty. It’s just stressful. Don’t go negative, regardless of whether it’s about past dates, the weather, yourself, or anything.
  • Overdo it. Flirting can be a way to carry on the conversation so that you don’t drift apart or lose the spark until your next meeting. But, sending too many flirty texts can be off-putting and tiresome. If you feel like you’re putting more effort into the conversation, consider pulling back a bit.
  • Bring up sex too early. As you can see from the examples we shared here, you can get steamy in your flirtations without being too forward. And even then, it’s best not to venture into the realm of sexy texts until you’ve established a connection.

Time to get creative with your flirty texts!
