5 Flirty Texts To Send Your Friend With Benefits To Stay On Their Mind

by Alison Segel

Do you know what "friends with benefits" means? It's friends who f*ck each other. I don't know how people do it. I catch feelings too easily. I'd catch feelings for a lamp if it gave me a compliment. But for those of you who are able to hook up with a pal and keep it cool, it's important to keep the attraction popping so you don't just slip into the friend zone. But what are some flirty texts to send your friend with benefits to keep the spark going? You know, when you're away from one another and not doin' it?

Full disclosure: I am not good at friends with benefiting, and I am also not good at things like sexting. It requires a kind of confidence and courage that I don't really have. But I've always thought it would be super cool to be fun and flirty with a crush while texting. It's like living in a rom com or one of those coolTV shows about rich kids in a private high school or vampires in a small town, where everyone is incredibly good looking and hooking up all the time. That's what I imagine flirt-texting with a friend with benefits feels like!

So here are some flirty texts to send your friend with benefits so you can be sure to stay on their mind. You gotta keep that attraction alive!

1. "I Woke Up Thinking About You"

Another option: "I just came thinking about you."

It all boils down to this: People like being thought of. It makes you feel special. And if this is someone you are hooking up with, then most likely, they like being thought of in a sexual manner by you. So let them know, explicitly, that they're on your mind. You can even give your crush some details, if you'd like.

2. "What Would You Do To Me If You Were Here Right Now?"

This will definitely turn into some sexting. But who cares? That's kind of what you want, right? You're friends with benefits! Why not? If you want to stay on your crush's mind, then keep it sexy when you're together and when you're not. Just because you're not in the same place, doesn't mean you can't be hooking up. #DigitalGetDown.

3. "You Were In My Dream Last Night"

If someone says you were in their dream last night, that means you were doing sexy stuff. No one ever dreams about their crush solving math problems or developing a plan for world peace. No, if your friend with benefits texts you saying they thought about you while snoozing, it's because it was all kinds of sexy.

So if you want to send your friend with benefits a fun and flirty text, tell them they popped up in your dream last night. The conversation might turn into some fantasy role play that could potentially be acted out later.

4. "You Make Me Horny"

Sometimes, being straightforward pretty much does it. You really want to get someone's attention? Just tell them they make your genitals feel some kind of way. Most likely, your crush will try to make plans with you ASAP.

5. "My Bed Feels Really Empty Right Now"

Follow up with "it would feel a lot better with you in it." Additionally, you can even send a photo along with this text or an offer for your friend with benefits to come over. "I'm saving a place for you" works great, too.

So if you want to text your friend with benefits something to keep things lusty between you, try out one of these texts. It's bound to keep the flame alive and could lead to some pretty interesting (X-rated) conversations.
