2. Ask Open-Ended Questions
Asking open-ended questions is a great way to keep a conversation going and not let a conversation fizzle out.
By asking questions that require more than a yes or no answer, you’re giving your crush the opportunity to really share something about themselves with you.
It also shows that you’re interested in getting to know them better, which is always a good thing.
So next time you’re texting your crush, try asking them about their day, what they’re up to, or anything to do with what they’re like.
3. Use Memes, Emojis, and Other Cool Stuff
If you want to text your crush without being boring, then you need to use some of the trendy and ‘cool’ texting features all the kids use these days!
That means embracing memes, emojis, gifs, stickers, and anything other than just plain old text.
Even if you think this isn’t totally appropriate for your crush, a few emojis and a funny meme is always going to go down well, I can guarantee it.
Plus, it’s completely true what people say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, it really is.
4. Don’t Be a Dry Texter
Dry texting is when you use short, disinterested, non-engaging replies or questions when texting someone.
It’s the epitome of being a boring texter, so you should always put some thought into your replies if you don’t want to be boring.
Add a bit of life to your texts by replying with more than just one or two words, and make sure you use some exclamation marks!!!
5. Be Yourself!
This is probably the most important tip of all when it comes to texting your crush without being boring.
If you try and be someone you’re not, they’re going to see right through it and it’ll be super obvious.
Even if you think you’re not interesting, it doesn’t matter. Your crush will want to get to know the real you, that’s what is exciting to them.
Just relax, be yourself, and go with the flow and I’m sure you’ll have no problem avoiding being a boring texter.
