In order to make a girl laugh over text, you need to understand this:

When you send a SMS to a girl, your message solely consists of text.

It’s not like a real conversation (i.e. a face-to-face conversation), where the message you send to the girl has multiple components: your facial expression, the tone you use, the way you stand, how you move your body… and to a limited extent the words in themselves.

And hold on:

In a real face-to-face interaction, the words you use actually account for less than 10% of your message.

The biggest part of your message (more than 90%) is non-verbal: it is containted in the tone of your voice, the speed at which you’re talking, your look, your gesture, your posture…

This is something that those who effectively handle humour in real interactions have clearly understood.

To get a girl to laugh in a real face-to-face conversation, non-verbal is key:

This is how you get the girl to understand that you’re playing with her.

This is how you get the girl to understand that you’re joking.

This is how you get the girl to understand that you’re teasing her.

how to make a girl laugh over textWhen you know how to handle non-verbal signals, it’s easy to use humour in a real face-to-face interaction.

With low risk of screwing things up, since you can easily see if the girl understood what you meant.

And you can correct things accordingly, simply by adjusting your facial expression.

This is not the case in an conversation consisting only of text.

When you send a text, your message is purely textual.

Purely “verbal”.

Containing only words (that account for only 10% of the message you actually pass in a real conversation).

Meaning that you don’t have the other 90% that allow you to easily transmit a good vibe at the right time, and so to deliver your message in an effective way.

That is the reason why you should be careful when planing to use humour in a text exchange, in order to avoid any bad misinterpretation.

On this basis, I’m going to share with you 3 simple and effective ways to use humour in a text exchange:

The first way to make a girl smile over text is to use smiley faces:

Smiley faces are very useful to add an additional dimension to your text.

This additional dimension can be seen as a non-verbal dimension, since these smiley faces replicate a facial expression:

  • a smile 🙂
  • a blink 😉
  • laugh 😀
  • sadness or discontent 🙁
  • surprise or astonishment 😮
  • embarrassment :s
  • etc.

You’re mostly going to use the first two: the smile 🙂 and the blink 😉.

Those smilies are those which replicate the best the facial expressions that you would adopt in a real face-to-face interaction when using humour to flirt with her.

You can optionally also use the third smiley face :D, but I rarely use it, since it’s conveys a bit too much of energy (you don’t want to behave in an over-excited or crazy way, it’s best to stay a bit relax).

Smilies are a great way to add an emotional color to your words.
The girl can easily understand that you’re playing with her.

So the first way to use humour in a text is to do it the same way you would in a real face-to-face conversation, but by using smiley faces instead of your real face.

But still be careful: smilies are not always enough to convey the right emotions.

It’s not always enough to lead to the right interpretation.

So make sure that the girl will be able to interpret your text the right way.

And don’t over use smilies.
One or two in a text is enough.

More and you run the risk to be seen like an immature guy, like an over-excited teenager or like a needy guy way too much invested in the interaction.

The second way to make a girl laugh over text is to make private jokes:

A private joke is like a funny story your share with the girl.

No one besides you and the girl can understand this joke (and eventually a few other people from your entourage).

This funny story is often linked to a situation both of you lived together, or linked to a past discussion you had.

For instance, if once you joked about the fact that she had the bad habit to always break glasses when washing the dishes after a party, you can easily use humour on this subject without risking a bad interpretation:

“Tell me you didn’t break all your glasses after this turbulent party”

Or rather:

“Tell me you didn’t break all your glasses after this turbulent party :)”

Notice how the use of a smiley face changes the emotional color of the message.

The third way to use humour in a text is to use classic jokes :

Classic jokes can be useful to make a girl laugh over text.

Jokes that aren’t too heavy and that get the girl to see you as a sophisticated (but not too much) and witty guy.

Have in mind that you must calibrate your jokes, depending on the girl you interact with.

And don’t overdo it.
One joke is enough. Two max.
Unless you want to look like a clown and destroy the sexual tension that exists between you and the girl.

Your goal when texting a girl you like?

Let me remind you what really matters here:

If you took the number of this girl, it’s to see her again, in the real life.

You didn’t take her phone number to have endless virtual tchat sessions with her.

You must restrain the text exchange and keep in mind that your goal is to invite the girl to a date (after putting her at ease through to effective texting).

Text should only be used as a mean to see the girl in the real life.

And eventually as a mean to stay in touch with her and being always present in her mind (for instance if you can’t see her – physically – during an extended period of time).

Don’t build a virtual relationship with a girl by engaging in endless text conversations

Use text to see her in the real life.

Cause it’s in the real life that you’ll be able to have really exciting conversations with her.

It’s in the real life that you’ll be able to take the interaction to something more sexual (as far as I know, remote sexual intercourses haven’t been invented yet).
