15 Flirty Texts To Send During The Talking Stage

Being in the “talking” phase of a relationship doesn't get enough love. Sure, things aren’t official yet because it's early days, but everything's heightened because every single thing is new. You’re getting to know one another, seeing if you vibe, and discovering if those feelings are going to grow into something more. It's all great stuff. Also, sending flirty texts to your crush when you’re talking is just so much fun. And that feeling when they flirt back is everything.

Say you want to shoot off a flirty missive but are drawing a blank on what to say, or are just feeling shy about it; first take a breath and relax. Sure, no one wants to come on too strong. At the same time, if you like someone, that’s a good thing, so there's nothing to be ashamed of. For those out there who need to hear it, it's OK to feel confident getting your flirt on! Glad we cleared that up. However, if you’re still not sure what to say, particularly in this early phase, no worries — here's some inspo to get those texting fingers a-typing.

1. I have a confession. Whenever I think about you I can’t stop smiling.

2. Good morning! So, um, I think I had a dream about you last night.

3. I love flirting with you over the phone, but I’d rather do it in person. Hint. Hint.

4. You’re so cute. Just thought you should know that.

5. I was just thinking about you, so I thought I'd say hi. So…. Hi! 👋😉
