Sorry, men, but if a girl isn't into you, you can't win.
Take it from a girl who happens to be extremely creepy. I can get the exact same text from two different boys and feel two COMPLETELY different things.
A "hi" from a boy I'm into has the power to make my day, but a "hi" from a boy I'm not interested in makes me want to throw up in tinfoil and eat it, then throw it back up and wrap it in another tin foil wrapping, then eat it again... and so on and so forth for the rest of eternity.
If you don't quite understand what I'm talking about, read this list for yourself. See how your texts fare with a girl who likes you and a girl who has no interest in you whatsoever.
In a way, you should take this information as a blessing. Send whatever the f*ck you want. If a girl's into you, she'll be into it. And if a girl's not into you, a text message isn't going to change her mind.
The "I miss you"
If she is into you: OMG, he misses me!! He really, really misses me!! Do I tell him I miss him too..? I wonder if he misses me as MUCH as I miss him (is that even possible)?
If she is not into you: F*ck. Looks like we've got a Stage Five Clinger on our hands. Get that emoji out of my face before I vom even more than I already am. We have known each other for 48 hours. You do not miss me.
If she is into you: F*ck. YES!!! He said it first, so I don't feel like a total idiot. But OMG, HE LOVES ME! HE REALLY REALLY LOVES ME!!!
If she is not into you: WTF?! How do I go about getting a restraining order...?
If she is into you: OMG... I can't believe he was able to be so vulnerable with me. I think my heart just melted.
If she is not into you: So do I forward this nutcase my therapist's number or what?
The feelings that are just blatantly not mutual
If she is into you: No, not at all! I feel the exact same way.
If she is not into you: Yes. It is f*cking weird. Please stop texting me.
The eager beaver
If she is into you: OMG, do I have to change outfits, or is it kosher to wear the same outfit if we're doing two dates in one day...?

The one who just "knows"
If she is into you: Um... SWOON!! I knew he was "The One."

The thing that made him think about you
If she is into you: AWWWWW, he remembered that I absolutely love puppies. Plus, is he kind of also calling me cute? I feel like he is... OMG.
If she is not into you: Why the f*ck do these dogs remind you of me? Take your irrelevant pics and emojis and GTFO of my inbox, please and thank you.
The end-of-the-weekend check-in
If she is into you: Man, I wish he would have texted me DURING the weekend so we could have seen each other. But still, so cute that he CARES.
If she is not into you: Do I tell him about the three guys I banged, or am I supposed to care about this dweeb's feelings?
The one who just wants to hold you
If she is into you: I wish he could be here to snuggle me more! Do I tell him I haven't washed my sheets since he last slept over just so I could take in his scent? Or is that creepy?
If she is not into you: I would rather have a serial killer hop into bed with me right now than you get your grimy paws all over me.
The big spender

If she is not into you: Oh, so when did I become a call girl?
The like that isn't a "like"

If she is not into you: Is it too harsh to block him from Facebook AND my phone?
The one who keeps tabs
If she is into you: Thank GOD he got the hints I was dropping everywhere over social media. YES, I'm back in the city!

The "wish you were here" text
If she is into you: Me too...</3.

If she is into you: SO cute that he wants me to come over so bad!
If she is not into you: Is he drunk...? I hope for the sake of his own dignity that he's drunk.
If she is into you: SO ROMANTIC!! OMG OMG!! Will there be candles? Oh, there will probably be candles. OMG.
If she is not into you: Only if you promise to slip poison in my spaghetti.
If she is into you:He's free anytime for ME! He's so laid-back. I love it.
If she is not into you: Before you try and talk to me, do yourself a favor and GET A LIFE.
The grateful-for-you text
If she is into you: I'm even MORE glad I met you, Eli! It's funny how you can have no hope for love and then meet somebody who suddenly turns everything upside down.
If she is not into you: Feelings are NOT mutual, Eli. Leave me alone.
The interest in what you're doing at this very moment
If she is into you: I love how much he just CARES. I wonder what he is doing right now. I should ask. OMG I'm totally gonna ask.
If she is not into you: Why does he want to know what I'm doing RIGHT now!? Is he going to come kill me?
The follow-up after a failed phone call attempt.
If she is into you: OMG OMG OMG, HOW did I miss his call in the first place?!
If she is not into you: No.
The extreme compliment.
If she is into you: Is he kidding with that?! I could die happy right now.
If she is not into you: Ew. My skin is literally crawling.
The obvious excuse to make conversation
If she is into you: I don't even care that there are no more new episodes of "Mad Men" being aired. He remembered that I said I love that show, and he just wants to strike up conversation! He is so freaking cute.
If she is not into you: There hasn't been a new episode of "Mad Men" on since last year. Hop off my dick.

If she is not into you: Well, it honestly was going well until I got THIS!
The out-of-the-blue emoji

The one who's falling so hard, so fast.
If she is into you: OMG, so I'm NOT crazy!! He feels the same way <3
If she is not into you: You are jumping the gun. You are leaping ahead of the gun. Dial it back about five million steps.

The "good night" text
