What does it mean when a guy starts texting you again?

Below are likely reasons why a guy will start texting you again and what would make each of them more likely.

He wants to see you again

The reason why he has started texting you again is likely to be that he wants to see you again. This would be more likely if you know that he recently broke up with someone else or if he has recently moved back to where you live. It would also be more likely if he has been trying to meet up with you, he has been asking about your relationship status or if he has been texting you sexual type things.

He was just being friendly

It might also be the case that he was just being friendly. This would be more likely if you used to be close friends with him and if he has not been trying to do things such as meet up with you.

He is trying to keep his options open

It could also be the case that he has been messaging you because he is trying to keep his options open. This would be more likely if you know that he is in a relationship or if he is living far away temporarily.

He needs something else from you

It might also be the case that he needs something else from you. This would be more likely if he asked you for something when he started texting you.

Things to consider

Below are some things to consider to help figure out the main reason.

How he reacts when he sees you

If you have been seeing him in person, it would help to consider the way that he reacts when he sees you. If he reacts by noticeably changing his body language it would be more likely that he has been texting you because he wants to see you again.

Ways he might change his body language could include:

  • Sitting up straighter
  • Adjusting his appearance
  • Moving closer to you
  • Raising his eyebrows momentarily

What has happened to him recently

It would also help to consider if something happened to him recently. If you know that he recently broke up with a girlfriend, moved homes, or stopped seeing someone, it would be more likely that he has been messaging you because he wants to start seeing you.

What he texts you

It would also help to consider the type of things that he has been texting you. If he has been texting you sexual sorts of things or he has been trying to get you to meet up with him, it would be a lot more likely that he has been messaging you because he wants to start seeing you again.

If you want to learn more about body language, a book I would recommend would be The Definitive Book of Body Language (on Amazon). It shows you how to interpret body language and understand people's true intentions.
