Gay Text Messages: 5 of the Best

In the age of emojis, phone calls have come to be viewed as something at best special, and at worst invasive. Texting is our era’s lingua franca. Though texts have made contact much easier, it’s also opened up massive space for miscommunication. And this rings true for gay text messages. Here are some handy suggestions to help you get to the point whilst building a bond with your dates.

“I know you’ve had a busy day, so I’m grabbing dinner for us.”

The most successful gay relationships I have witnessed over the years involve couples who claim they know what their partner’s thinking. In the beginning, it’s worth flexing those muscles to keep things going in a positive direction. Who will say no to free food after a rather taxing workday?

Gay text messages like this will almost always win someone over. You’ll be the guy that your date tells his friends about. What’s a more endearing tale than bringing him his favorite Thai food when he knew you hadn’t stopped moving all day.

“I really enjoyed our first date. Can we get together this weekend for dinner/drinks? I’m free after 5 pm on both days.”

Who thinks a man with a plan is anything other than attractive? One of my number one pet peeves is the colloquial, “let me know when you are free.” People do this because they no longer wish to claim responsibility for “not being a communicative person.”

People can feel things out and should proceed with whatever tactic of scheduling things. Regardless, you shouldn’t be reminding someone to get back to you if going on another date seems important to them. If you’ve felt you’ve been communicative and are playing conversational volleyball by yourself or not at the pace you prefer, then it’s best to move on.

When I was more actively single, one of the worst gay text messages I would receive was something along the lines of, “maybe we can possibly grab a drink on the weekend if my work schedule allows.” Just so there isn’t any ambiguity, be a little bit more forward. If you are on the receiving end of this, offer a concrete solution as opposed to saying anything vague.
