by Christy Piña

First dates aren't always a walk in the park — the small talk, the first date jitters, the worry that you'll say or do something embarrassing... it's a lot. But once the date is over, figuring out when you should text them and what you're supposed to say can be just as nerve-wracking. You don't want to come on too strong, but you really enjoyed the date and their company! Don't fret. These punny texts to send after a first date will make your date smile, and they're simple enough to let them know they're on your mind. You know what they say: The way to someone's heart is through their laughter. (Or something.)

Puns are funny, and they have a way of breaking the ice in a way very few other things can. When you want to text someone after a great first date, but saying something as simple as, "Hey, I had a great time," doesn't seem like enough, flirty, punny, silly texts like these can come in handy. They serve as a way in with someone, while also somewhat allowing you to keep your post-date ~cool~. Try any of these punny texts, and you may be surprised by how your date reacts!
