How to Respond When Guy Texts You I Want to See You

The fundamentals of romantic relationships are always changing according to trends, society, requirements, and expectations. But the basic foundation of all relationships is the same few requirements: love, support, care, stability, and loyalty. But one thing that has changed is how we date, as opposed to how our relationships are. Instead of the old-school, you’ll meet them when it’s meant to be, Gen Z and Millennials have become more proactive. Instead of waiting for fate, they’ve taken matters into their own hands.

Of course, they didn’t wander around aimlessly for it; provisions were made to make this process as simple as possible. Tinder, Bumble, Grindr, and OkCupid are among the top dating sites which match you with users you’re most likely to date.

They make this match using algorithms to analyze your likes, dislikes, interests, and preferences. It’s overall a very neat and well-thought project, and until now, it’s mostly going well. Of course, it doesn’t go well in some cases, but it’s not like the old-fashioned way always worked, right?

Online dating has pros and cons, but it’s an efficient alternative for those who can’t or don’t want to devote their time to looking for someone. Sure, you will meet people you wish you would’ve never met, but it’s all part of the process.

However, sometimes you might not like it, mostly because you’re just not that type of person. For example, if you consider yourself a hopeless romantic, you’ll never feel that spark with someone you met online. It’ll all feel a bit too orchestrated to feel genuinely romantic.

We advise sticking with socializing unless you’ve lost all hope of finding someone. After all, you never know when and how you’ll meet the person you’d never want to let go of.

Today’s blog will discuss how you should respond when a guy texts you that he wants to see you.

How to Respond When Guy Texts You I Want to See You

Let’s say you’ve been talking to a guy online: maybe on Tinder, Instagram, Bumble, or Snapchat. You’ve been having fun for some time but want to take it a step ahead. Well, not you, but the guy does. So, how do you respond in such a situation?

Well, “I want to see you” has many implications. What if they live nearby and want to see you for a while? Or, what if this is your internet friend who lives thousands of kilometers away and just wants to hop on a video call?

Even after considering several such scenarios, the answer depends on whether you wish to see them or not. Since a video call has lesser stakes and is therefore far less risky than a meet-up, you can simply reply with any of these:

I knew a point would come when you’ll want to see how far my makeup skills go.

Well, it looks like the truth is out. I’m actually a 38-year-old man living in my mom’s basement.

To answer your question, yes, my profile picture is exactly how I look.

If you’re indecisive about meeting them, you should not be going. After all, why should you be hesitant to see someone unless something in them isn’t sitting right with you, consciously or subconsciously?

To know for sure, all you need to do is consult these five questions and answer with the first thing that comes into your mind:

  1. Do you know his name and who he is?
  2. Does a trustworthy adult know you’re meeting him?
  3. Are you meeting in a public place?
  4. Can you think of a reason why you shouldn’t meet him?
  5. How old are the both of you?

If you do want to meet them, any polite response will do. But it would be best if you indicated going out with you is not easy. Here are some statements you can respond with when they say they want to meet you somewhere:

[Full name in all capital letters], are you asking me out on a date?

Well, I don’t do very well with unlabelled relationships, so tell me, is this a date?

It depends… are flowers and food involved as a part of this romantic evening?

I might be willing if chivalry is involved as the evening’s special feature.

If you want to decline or play them for a bit, you can do that, too!

Why? Do you not believe that someone as great as I exist?

As do millions, boy. But we can’t always get what we want, can we?

Are you sure you can take me?

However, these are just the answers you should give when they’re interested in dating you.

There is a possibility that they want to hang out with you as friends, right? It’s best to clarify these details beforehand, and it’s not even that difficult!

Just to be clear, is this a date?

So is this an official date, or can I wear sweats?

A summon for a date has to be delivered royally; a text message simply won’t do.

While it might sting a little when they say it’s not a date, better now than when you get there in your black dress, right?

In the end

At our blog’s end, we’d like to quickly recap the answer to your question.

The response is the least important part in this situation; whether you truly want to go or not is the main thing. Does he make you feel safe and comfortable? How long have you known him? What alternatives do you have if this meeting does not turn out to be good?

Remember to always add a joking tone to your response because guys tend to back out of such commitments. If you have any questions, we’d love to answer them in the comments!
