Is there any better feeling than liking a guy and knowing you are on his mind?
Whether you are talking to someone you met on a dating app or your long-term boyfriend, hearing “I can’t wait to see you” will surely make you smile.
Don’t let the happiness you feel when you see these words be ruined by worrying about how to respond.
The good news is that if a guy is texting you to tell you how much he’s looking forward to spending time with you, he’s definitely into you.
That isn’t going to change because of a silly or foolish response to his message.
That said, if you can send a great response, you’ll build up the excitement he feels, and he’ll probably be looking forward to seeing you even more.

Best responses when a guy you like says he can’t wait to see you
Whether you’ve been crushing on the new guy at work, are rekindling things with an old flame, or someone asked you out at a bar, you’ll want to spend time with your love interest.
In fact, one of the most telling signs that you’re developing feelings for someone is that you spend a lot of time thinking about when you can see them next.
A lot of men find it difficult to talk about their emotions.
There’s no shortage of girls responding to dry texts from a guy and wondering where things are going between them.
When a guy says he can’t wait to see you, he’s essentially telling you that he likes you.
“I can’t wait to see you” shows enthusiasm and genuine interest, which you shouldn’t take for granted.
If you like a guy, the most important thing is that you reciprocate his expressions of affection.
There are a whole handful of ways you can do that. From simple two-word answers (think, “Same here!”) to more lengthy expressions of mutual interest, this article has you covered.
1. I’m really looking forward to it too!
Texting has become a regular part of all our lives. But while you learn to write letters at school and learn to write emails at work, no one ever really teaches us how to text.
We pick up what we know from how the people around us text; but the truth is that we rarely see other people’s text exchanges.
Texting conversations are private, and it isn’t like you can eavesdrop on them. The result is that a lot of us feel insecure about what to say.
Because texts are so short, there’s a lot of pressure to choose the right few words.
If you are into a guy who tells you he can’t wait to see you and you aren’t sure what to respond, keep it simple.
Say you’re really looking forward to seeing him too and add an exclamation mark to show that you mean it.
2. Likewise 😊
Using an emoji is a great way to express something without having to spell it out.
Like a smile in real life, this happy little symbol is a way of communicating something unspoken.
While it might be a little too early to respond with a heart emoji, a smiley is nicely ambiguous: it can be flirty or friendly, so you aren’t giving away too much too soon.
Even though this response is just one word, it conveys genuine excitement to see the person you’re texting.
3. Me neither!
If you want to express how excited you are to hang out with someone, and they tell you they can’t wait to see you, a simple “me neither!” does the trick.
Saying you can’t wait either and following it up with an exclamation mark is an ideal way to say a lot without saying much at all.
4. As am I! What do you want to do on our date?
If you’re looking for a creative way to tell someone that you feel the same way they do, “As am I!” is a good option.
If you like a guy but feel awkward dwelling on lovey-dovey ideas and aren’t one for cheesiness, you can change the subject to practical considerations quickly.
Asking “What do you want to do on our date?” forces the guy you’re texting to stop talking about his feelings and start talking logistics.
5. Me too. I’ve been thinking about it all week.
If you are the sincere type, this is a perfect text message to send a guy who has told you he can’t wait to see you.
When we’ve been looking forward to seeing a guy, expressing that in a genuine way will reassure him that the feelings they have are reciprocated.
A lot of people use humor to avoid having meaningful conversations about their emotions.
But a guy who says he can’t wait to see you and is open about his feelings for you will value a candid response like this one.
6. Right back at you.
Okay, picture this: You like a guy, but it feels a little early for him to be getting all emotional in your inbox.
To keep things lighthearted, respond to his, “I can’t wait to see you,” with a simple, “Right back at you.”
The tone of this response says, “I like you, but I’m not about to tell you ‘I love you so much’…and whatever you do, don’t call me ‘honey.’”
So, if that’s what you’re feeling, this is the message to send.
7. Can’t wait to see your smile again.
Just as people have different ways of speaking, people have different texting styles.
Some people spend their entire time on their phones in a series of sarcastic exchanges. Others spend their time responding to someone calling them cute over text and sending smiley with three hearts emojis.
Both approaches to chatting are good! After all, it takes all kinds of kinds.
If you’re a sincere person and like to express your emotions, you can open the door to a sweet conversation by sending this message in response to “I can’t wait to see you.”
This text can also be adapted to whatever your favorite feature of the person you’re messaging is. It works just as well with eyes, for example.
8. I was just thinking about you!
One of the most meaningful things you can tell someone is that they have been on your mind.
The fact that you are thinking about them when you don’t have to means they have made an impression on you and that you care about them.
9. Aw, thanks for saying that. That makes me feel a lot less nervous about this evening.
If you have plans with someone and are feeling nervous about being awkward on a date, you can be honest about it when they text your earlier in the day to confirm.
If, once you’ve gotten the logistics of your meet-up out of the way, they tell you they can’t wait to see you, you can respond by letting them know you appreciate their enthusiasm.
10. I’m ready to have the best evening ever.
It is commonly said that anticipating something is better than experiencing it.
And while that may be true, it also true that hyping something up in advance can make the actual event better.
If two people go into a date sounding lukewarm about each other, the date might not be great.
However, if two people go into a date having expressed how excited they both are for it, usually the date will go well…or at least better than it would have if neither person had put in any effort.
11. Same. I feel like we always have such a good time when we hang out.
To express that you’re excited to see a guy, but stay away from getting too serious too soon, you can respond to his, “I can’t wait to see you,” with “Same.”
Then, say that you always have a good time when you hang out.
This is a level-headed response that implies you want to get to know the guy better, but that you aren’t wondering how long to date before marriage just yet.
12. Any chance you’re free this weekend then?
Some guys are all words and no action. Are you’re starting to worry that the guy you’re chatting to talks a big talk but doesn’t put in the work?
If so, respond to his “I can’t wait to see you” by putting pressure on him to make actual plans.
13. Same here. You’re literally my favorite person to be around.
One of the sweetest things you can say to someone is that they are your no. 1 person to hang out with.
There is no higher compliment than being told someone would rather hang out with you than anyone else, so this text will surely make the guy you are texting’s day.
That said, these are pretty big words, so only send them if you mean them.
Funny ways to respond when a guy says he can’t wait to see you
Using humor is a great way to friendzone someone over text. If you aren’t into a guy, you can discourage him from coming on too strong by making the conversation more lighthearted.
Interestingly, saying, “I can’t wait to see you” can either be a heartfelt, sincere thing to say or a very casual one.
Funny texts are also a great way to play hard to get and to make a guy chase you.
If he can’t totally tell where you’re at, he’ll be looking for reassurance that you’re interested, which means he’ll be giving you his attention.
Whatever your reason for wanting to give a witty response to “I can’t wait to see you” from a guy, here are a few clever options.
14. I know! And don’t worry about organizing anything fancy…I would hang out in a dump if it meant spending time with you.
If you have been dating a guy and you already have a good and witty rapport, you can tell him not to worry too much about trying to impress you.
Joking that you’d hang out with him in a dump (or any other undesirable location) will make him smile.
15. Oh yeah? Why’s that?
If you’re trying to get a guy to flirt, you can try to coax him into saying why he can’t wait to see you.
If you know that he’s hoping that something will happen between the two of you, you can jeer him by trying get him to say what he would like to have happen.
By playing ignorant, you’re forcing him to express something that you both know but that very often goes unacknowledged.
He might also interpret it as you asking why he likes you, in which case he’ll have to figure out what to say when a girl asks why you like her. The result will probably give you a pretty big ego boost.
16. Just try not to get blinded when you do…I’m looking pretty 🔥
If you know you’re a 10 out of 10, you can make a funny quip about how fire you are.
If I guy says, “I can’t wait to see you,” joke that he might have to take precautions when he does because you’re so blindingly good looking.
He’ll know you’re joking, but he’ll also know you would only make that joke if you felt confident about your appearance…which will just make him look forward to seeing you even more.
17. Are you sure you’re not a bot? You seem too good to be real haha
If you met a guy after you sent a great response to “What’s up?” on Tinder, and have been messaging ever since, you can send him this when he says he can’t wait to see you.
The joke, of course, is that normal men are not as perfect as he is coming across, which makes you suspect he is an algorithm. Of course, he’ll know you’re only kidding, and he’ll appreciate the ribbing (which is more of a compliment than anything else).
18. New phone…who dis?
If a guy excitedly expresses that he can’t wait to see you, you can joke around by pretending you don’t even know who he is.
That said, follow this up pretty quickly with a “JK, I am too!” After all, if you like the guy, you wouldn’t want him to actually feel insecure.
19. Okay, calm down, tiger.
Are you someone who struggles to say that you’re excited about things (even if you secretly are)?
Then you can joke around with the guy who says he can’t wait to see you by acting like he’s being overly keen.
I mean…he obviously isn’t. And if he knows you well enough, he’ll get your humor.
20. I bet you say that to all the girls.
This line is a classic way to humorously deflect a guy’s advances.
It’s a way to pretend that you aren’t taking a guy’s interest in you seriously because you think he’s an opportunist who is flirting with all the girls he knows.
This might cause him to protest that he isn’t and make him pull out his best “convince someone to date you” lines. Alternatively, he might do something funny in return, like send you an eye-roll emoji.
This emoji is the key ingredient of any flirty conversation.
If a guy tells you he can’t wait to see you, you can send him this smirking emoji to communicate that you also can’t wait to see him.
Be aware that if you send a guy this emoji, he’ll take it as confirmation that you’re interested in him, so only do so if you actually think he would make a date worth keeping.
People use the upside-down emoji (🙃) while flirting all the time. It’s usually used as a way of expressing dry humor, or of suggesting physical attraction without having to say anything.
23. Tell me more…
If you want to make a guy smile by being a bit cheeky, you can try to get him to tell you more about why he wants to see you.
Ultimately, when you’re texting a guy and making plans to see him, you should be trying to keep the conversation between you interesting.
That means that the worst thing you could do is play it safe.
By asking for more information about how and why a guy can’t wait to see you, you’re opening the door to an interesting chat.
24. Are you saying you only like me because of how I look?
Pretending to be offended (or to have misunderstood) is one of the greatest ways to change the tone of a conversation from serious to bantering.
Particularly if a guy makes a point of always commenting how good you look, you can jeer him by pretending to take offense to him saying he can’t wait to see you.
25. I literally just saw you this morning 😂
If you feel like a guy is coming on a bit strong because you were just with him and he’s already texting you saying he can’t wait to see you again, you can send this funny reply.
26. Have you forgotten what I look like already?
If you aren’t quite sure how you feel about a guy and want to reply to “I can’t wait to see you” with something non-committal, this is a good option.
Suggesting that the reason a guy would want to see you is because he can’t remember what you look like is obviously ridiculous.
It is witty, which indicates that you want to keep the conversation going, but it isn’t too encouraging.
This response gives you some room to decide how you feel about a guy without worrying that you’ve led him on.
27. I completely understand why…I mean, I’m great.
Humor is a good way of not saying too much of anything. And this is a prime example of a great way to reply to “I can’t wait to see you.”
28. I’d feel the same way if I was you.
This, again, is just a silly response to someone saying they can’t wait to see you.
You’re obviously joking while keeping the conversation going.
In the early stages of any relationship, establishing that you have the same sense of humor is essential, and little quips like this can help do just that.
Perfect replies to “I can’t wait to see you” from your boyfriend
If you’re already in a committed relationship with a guy, you have a lot more leeway when it comes to how you respond to him saying, “I can’t wait to see you.”
The key thing is to acknowledge how well he treats you and how happy it makes you feel to get a loving text from him.
29. You’re so good to me. I don’t know what I did to deserve you.
This is a straightforward response when a guy says “I miss you” or your boyfriend says, “I can’t wait to see you.”
You’re communicating how much you care about him and how grateful you are for his affectionate words.
30. That’s such a sweet thing to say. How did I get so lucky?
No one doesn’t like to hear that their partner feels lucky. If the guy you’re with tells you he can’t wait to see you, respond by telling him he is sweet and asking him to tell you how come you got lucky enough to have him by your side.
31. I smile every time I think about Friday.
“I can’t wait to see you” can either be a general statement that refers to whenever you next spend time together, or it can be in reference to a specific, upcoming time.
If you have a date planned for the weekend with your boyfriend and he says he can’t wait to see you, you can refer to the specific day of your date in your reply.
Saying you smile every time you think about it will make him want to make your date extra special.
32. You’re so lovely…where did you come from?
Ah, the good old “where did you come from?” line.
Implying that someone is so unusually good or nice that they are basically an alien is a funny way to tell a guy you appreciate him without having to spell it out.
33. Oh, you have no idea!
When someone tells you they are looking forward to seeing you, there is no better response than, “Oh, you have no idea!”
What you’re essentially saying is: “You might think you’re looking forward to seeing me, but I can assure you, I’m looking forward to seeing you more.”
Great responses when a guy on Tinder says he can’t wait to see you
In many ways, “I can’t wait to see you” is a compliment from a guy.
Without explicitly saying what he likes about you or why he is looking forward to seeing you, he’s telling you that there is something about you that intrigues him.
If you’re swiping away on a dating app and match with a guy who seems like he might be something special, you’ll probably start thinking about meeting up with him.
If you arrange a date on Tinder and the guy you’re chatting to then says, “I can’t wait to see you,” you have a variety of options about how to respond.
What you say will probably depend on how much you like him.
Take caution that you don’t commit too fully before you’ve even met someone.
That said, if you’ve connected really well, don’t hold back too much either.
There’s no shame in saying, “I’m really looking forward to meeting you!”
34. I know! I’ve never connected with someone so well over text…so I can’t wait to see how much fun we have in person.
This is a well-rounded, fun, and enthusiastic response to a guy on Tinder saying he can’t wait to see you.
Meeting online leads to happier, more enduring marriages, so you may just be about to set off on your forever journey.
35. I have a feeling we’re going to get along great.
If you instantly click with someone over Tinder’s chat function, this is a perfect reply to a guy expressing how much he’s looking forward to an upcoming date.
If you seem excited, he’ll definitely want to impress a girl on a first date.
36. Me too…but I also feel nervous about meeting up in person.
If you know you’re going to be all jittery when you prep for your date, you can ease your anxiety by telling the person you’re meeting that you’re a little nervous in advance.
You might be surprised by how quickly you start to feel more comfortable once you’ve expressed your trepidation.
37. I’ve been looking forward to it all week 😊
If you arranged a date in advance and a guy tells you he can’t wait to meet you, you can tell him you’ve been looking forward to the event since the beginning of the week.
38. Who knew downloading Tinder would lead to a genuine connection.
Never thought you would be the type to meet up with someone you met on a dating app but have been pleasantly surprised by a guy?
If so, send him this message when he tells you he can’t wait to see you.
Ideal responses when a guy says he can’t wait to see you (long-distance relationship)
There is nothing harder than loving a person who you hardly ever get to see. But sometimes, for whatever reason, life requires us to live apart from our partners.
Fortunately, in most cases, absence makes the heart grow fonder. No one who lives with their significant other is going home from work every day dying to see them. Or at least, those who are are in the lucky minority.
Here are a few ways you can respond if your boyfriend sends you a text saying he can’t wait to see you from thousands of miles away.
39. I can’t wait to hold your hand again.
When your long-distance beau tells you he can’t wait to see you, why not talk about a specific thing you can’t wait to do.
Express how you are going to show your affection when you see your partner again.
This can be something as simple as saying you’re looking forward to holding your boyfriend’s hand or cooking him his favorite dinner.
4o. I miss you so much.
Your brain on heartbreak is often not functioning perfectly. And while a long-distance relationship is your typical kind of heartbreak, it can certainly be just as painful at times.
Telling your long-distance boyfriend that you miss him is a good way to make sure you aren’t feeling lonely alone, so to speak.
41. If you can’t wait to see me, imagine how much I can’t wait to see you!
This is a self-explanatory response to a sweet “I can’t wait to see you” message from a partner living abroad.
42. I haven’t been able to sleep this whole week: that’s how excited I’ve been.
When you’re finally getting to see your boyfriend after a long time apart, this reply to “I can’t wait to see you” is perfect.
43. It’ll be so nice to get to spend real quality time together after all these months.
If you’ve only had a few sporadic days together over the last year and are going to spend some real time together soon, this is a perfect response to “I can’t wait to see you.”
44. I honestly can’t tell you how excited I am to run into your arms at the airport.
Visualizing the scene of your reunion may give you goosebumps if you’re in a long-distance relationship.
He won’t have to think about how often you should text your girlfriend, because you two will be together all the time.
Respond to your boyfriend telling you he can’t wait to see you again by describing how you picture your first moments back together.
45. It’s so hard being away from you, but it makes it even more special when we see each other.
Are you a glass-half-full type of person? If so, this is the right message to send your partner when you’re living apart.
This mature approach to your relationship will help your boyfriend see the positives about your arrangement.
46. I wish I could be with you now.
And finally, this is a classic response that conveys exactly what you’re probably thinking every time your long-distance boyfriend tells you that he can’t wait to see you.
