How to Text a Sagittarius Man
1. Only text when you have something to say
With a Sagittarius man, you’ve got to grab his attention or kiss it goodbye.
Never send him a text that’s so vague or boring, it will make him strain to think of what to say back.
He’ll leave it on read and move on with his day.
Make sure that every text you send him is worth his time.
Don’t text him a picture of your lunch, or if you do, add a silly message that you know he’ll get and will make him laugh.
2. You can text a Sagittarius man first
Some women prefer to entice the Sagittarius man to text them first.
Since he doesn’t really like when women throw themselves at him, there’s nothing wrong with playing it safe.
However, you don’t actually have to do that with a Sagittarius guy.
He welcomes the chance to flirt with someone as cool and bold as yourself!
Make your first text memorable by saying something funny to him.
If you’ve got any inside jokes, that’s a perfect opener.
3. Make it short and sweet
A Sagittarius man has a limited amount of time and attention for any one thing.
As an energetic man on the go, he’ll only read and reply to texts that don’t interrupt his flow.
Meaning, they’ve got to be brief.
Avoid texting him long paragraphs or half a dozen texts in a row before he replies.
He’ll probably intend to get back to you later but forget to follow through.
4. Entertain him
Avoid getting into dark, heavy or emotional areas of conversation.
As a rule of thumb, you want to stay light and upbeat.
There’s a time and place for the serious stuff, but Sagittarius men would much rather save those for in-person conversations.
Just focus on entertaining him to keep that short attention span focused on you.
Send jokes, brain teasers and cool pictures to look at.
He’ll think you’re a super interesting person he needs to get to know more.
5. Text him a funny meme
If it hasn’t become obvious by now, Sagittarius men value humor a great deal.
They love a good game of who-can-make-the-other-person-laugh-harder.
In addition to witty comments and funny one-liners, send the Sagittarius man memes that will get him chuckling.
He likes blunt-type humor and jokes that are considered “immature” (fart jokes never cease to make him laugh).
He’ll also praises classier, more intelligent humor, as long as it’s not too subtle.
He’d rather fight to not spit out his food, he’s laughing so hard.
6. Don’t freak out if he doesn’t text back
It may take a while to hear back from him, but that’s OK!
The Sagittarius man is probably busy working or playing.
He prioritizes what’s going on in real life, in the moment, over answering texts.
Getting mad about his lack of reply will make him go, “Whoa, what was that about?”
He’s not trying to hurt your feelings, he’s just a wee bit distracted.

Is the point of texting to get him to be into you?
Of course it is—so sprinkle in some flirting!
Compliments about his intelligence and his sense of humor go down well.
But you can also make him feel good by saying, “How many hearts do you break a day with that smile?”
Just be playful.
Flirting is best done with a Sagittarius man…surprise, surprise…in a light and fun way.
8. Text him brainy questions
It may seem like a Sagittarius is all about fun and jokes, but he also ponders the deep questions about life.
The sign of the philosopher, Sagittarians enjoy talking about anything from politics to psychology, as long as you’re not trying to force an opinion down their throats.
Ask for his opinion on these subjects.
Don’t limit yourself—explore all sides and even play devil’s advocate.
Just make things interesting—that’s the key to getting him hooked.
9. Send him pictures of your travels
The sign of Sagittarius has a strong connection to long-distance travel, especially to foreign countries.
So as you might imagine, Sagittarians are big on things like epic travel adventures (obviously), travel photography and learning about other cultures.
A great short-and-sweet text for his entertainment is a photo of you on a trip with plenty of scenery in the background.
Add a sassy sentence to describe it and make him smile.
No need to cross international lines!
You can simply send him pictures of a beautiful natural destination like a waterfall or a cool historic town.
Not only will this catch his interest, but it will also show that you’re a kindred spirit he can adventure with.
10. Don’t text him around the clock
Be careful about how much you’re texting a Sagittarius man.
That is, don’t text him all day, every day.
It comes off as needy to him, which is a giant no-no for this freedom-obsessed man.
If you’re in the flow of a conversation, there’s no need to cut it short.
Just give him some time to think about your amazing texting conversation and start to miss you.
Be the confident, independent woman he wants!
