15 Good Morning Texts for Him to Make Him Want You

15 Good Morning Texts for Him to Make Him Want You

As you get into the routine of texting a man you’re interested in, you’ll start to notice certain patterns. There are texts in the morning…maybe during your lunch break…and then before you go to bed. Getting into a routine with texting is a good thing! But you don’t want him to always be the one starting a text conversation with you. In this article, I’m going to give you some sample good morning texts for him to make him want you, in case you need a little inspiration!

Each section below is tailored toward whatever specific situation you’re in:

  • You connected on a dating app but haven’t met in person yet
  • Once you’ve had your first date
  • After you’ve had sex
  • When you want to take the relationship further
  • Once you’re settled into a relationship

Keep in mind, these are just example good morning texts for him! I encourage you to customize them however you want.

Good Morning Texts for Him If You’re Just Starting to Talk

If you’ve met on a dating app and are in that fun getting-to-know-you phase, keep it light and focus on creating consistency in your texts. It’s nice to establish that rhythm of texting one another first thing in the morning at this point.

While you’re working on getting to know one another, the first text of the day probably shouldn’t do a deep dive into a conversation. After all, he’s either still half asleep or is getting ready for work. Keep it simple and upbeat. Focus on writing something that requires a response.

Here are some examples:

“Hey, cutie! What’s on your plate today?”

It’s easy-breezy. You’re really just looking to start a conversation. But hey, if the question opens the door to him saying he’s free in the evening, you might just … Read More

Dating a Younger Man? Here are 13 Things You Should Know

Dating a Younger Man? Here are 13 Things You Should Know

Dating a younger man? It can be fun, especially if you’re 40 or older and figuring out what you want in terms of dating and relationships. But realize: dating a younger man is definitely different from dating a man your age or even older. There will be things you like (his energy) and things that drive you crazy (the fact that he has no clue who Max Headroom is).

Tips for Dating a Younger Man

Some women exclusively date younger men: in fact, 31% of older women prefer dating younger men. Others may try it once or twice and decide that it’s not for them. There’s no telling which way you’ll feel about dating an older man until you have your own experience.

Here are a few of the things you should be aware of if you do.

1. He’ll Have a Different Perspective

Michelle, who’s 40, went on a date with the younger man she was seeing; they went out for a trivia night at a local brewery.

A question about Max Headroom came up.

“Who’s Max Headroom?” her date asked.

“Are you kidding me?” Michelle wondered.

Later, a question about the Care Bears was asked. Again, her date was clueless. Because he wasn’t even born when these ’80s pop culture icons were popular, he had no reference for them.

They went their separate ways not long after. Coincidence? Maybe…

Realize that in dating a much younger man, you won’t share many cultural references. A man four years younger than you, sure, will get much of the same things you do, but one around 10 years younger probably won’t.

And you might not get his either. You might hate the music and movies he’s into. It’s a generational divide, and you need to figure out how important it … Read More

22 Second Date Rules to Guarantee You Get a Third

22 Second Date Rules to Guarantee You Get a Third

Congrats! You’ve made it to that second date. Now’s a great opportunity to really get to know this guy and see if there’s long-term potential.

But you’re still in murky waters. Going out twice with a man doesn’t necessarily guarantee that you’ll end up in a relationship…or even that you’ll go on a third date.

Why The Second Date is So Important

First dates are basic Dating 101; you’re just seeing if you are potentially interested in one another. But sometimes you can’t really get a sense of whether or not you’re a good fit for each other in that first short date. You (or he) might be nervous. You might have trouble engaging in conversation. You might be so worried about whether you have spinach between your teeth that you can’t really relax and have a good time.

But on a second date, you’re more relaxed and ready to dive deeper. You’ve likely chatted with this man since the first date, either via text or on the phone, so you’re a little more comfortable and have more to discuss on your date.

And the fact is: 61% of single men and 70% of single women are more excited about a second date than a first, so you’ve got the potential to have a lot more fun this time!

Tips To Rock That Second Date

Relax. You’ve got this. Your second date will be the best!

Now that you know how important a second date is, you might be understandably a little nervous. What if you screw it up? How can you figure out whether he’s boyfriend material or not?

Not to worry, Sexy Confident lady. I’ve got proven tips to help you have the best (and maybe last) second date ever.

1. Choose a Quiet Venue So

What to Wear on a First Date: How to Feel Confident No Matter What Type of Date You’re On

What to Wear on a First Date: How to Feel Confident No Matter What Type of Date You’re On

If it’s been a while since you last dated, you may be clueless as to what to wear on a first date.

You don’t want to look “easy”, so short skirts and tight tops are out…aren’t they?

And you don’t feel like you need to cover up head to toe like a nun…

Where’s the balance here??

Breaking Down What to Wear on a First Date

                   Agonizing over what to wear? Here’s help!

Sure, what you wear on a first date may be different if you’re in your 50’s then if you are in your 20s. But the key is finding what makes you feel good.

Also, it depends on what sort of first date you’re going on. You obviously wouldn’t wear heels and a skirt if you were going to play mini golf or to the beach, and you’d want to dress up a little if he’s asked you out for a nice dinner.

Let’s look at different date scenarios to help you find the right outfit for each.

Coffee Date

                            Go casual on your coffee date!

This is the gold star first date: it’s short and sweet, so if you’re not into him after an hour, you can leave. If you are hitting it off, you can stretch it out by going to happy hour or on a walk…or end the date and leave him wanting more.

Great for: meeting someone for the first time from a dating app. 

Because I always urge you to exercise caution on a first date — particularly if it’s with someone who you only know online — a date in a busy coffee shop is a safe option to get to know him.

And because you’d usually get coffee in the morning or afternoon, you don’t have to worry about … Read More

Why Do Guys Ghost? 5 Reasons That Will Save You Heartache

Why do guys ghost? Honestly, I don’t get it.

I’m sure you’ve experienced ghosting while talking to a guy:

Things are going well. You’re texting or talking on the phone regularly. He’s even starting to be a little vulnerable with you. You’re starting to feel like this might actually turn into a relationship.

Then suddenly, out of NOWHERE, he just ghosts.

Disappears.

Vanishes.

Nowhere to be found.

And you’re thinking, “what the #$^#? What went wrong? What did I do wrong?”

And then every once in a while after you’ve written the guy off, you feel the remnants of that ghost. You feel like you’re in a cheesy horror movie where the haunted spirit keeps surprising you…

…in the form of a late night drunk text…

…or a heart on your Instagram post…

…or a right swipe on your Bumble profile.

…and you’re wondering, “what does he want? Why do men ghost, and how can I avoid this horror movie that is my love life??”

Before you get all annoyed at me as I explain why guys ghost, please realize that I don’t condone any of these behaviors. I just want to give you the real deal so you can understand why men act crazy like this.

Why Do Guys Ghost? I Don’t Understand!

When I talk to women who are dating later in life, maybe after a divorce, one of the top things they’re frustrated about is ghosting.

Let me just say: ghosting is the cowardly way out of a relationship. Regardless of … Read More
