4. Do not respond to his texts
One of the most annoying things that boyfriends do is either not text back or respond to your texts in monosyllables. Want to mess with your boyfriend over text? Why not give him a taste of his own medicine? Read his messages, but do not respond to them.
This will drive your guy crazy, making him think that he has done something wrong which has made you angry. A bonus would be that guys do not really like being ignored on texts, so it should annoy him more.
Sherry says her boyfriend had an annoying habit of replying to her texts in emojis. “I’d write long texts and he’d respond with a string of emojis. Half the time, I’d not even get what he’s trying to say. So, I just stopped responding to his messages for an entire day. By the time we met after work, he was so annoyed, he was practically fuming.”
5. Tell him about random guys flirting with you
If you’re wondering how to playfully annoy your boyfriend over text, this is a foolproof way! Tell him about all the guys sliding into your DMs or the cute guy from college who is subtly engaging in some harmless flirting on you.
When you are hanging out with your boyfriend, you can find an opportune moment and point the random guys, like those at the supermarket, restaurant, etc who are totally checking you out. Talk to other guys and ignore him. He may be the most composed guy in the world, but this will go a long way in annoying him.
One of the tricky but bankable pranks to make your boyfriend mad over text is to on purpose ‘accidentally’ send him a text meant for a guy who has been hitting on you.
6. Indulge in PDA on social media
One of the funniest ways to annoy your boyfriend is to be everywhere on his social media. Most boys aren’t very active when it comes to posting on social media. Keep commenting cute and annoying things on his posts, photos, and videos.
Shower extra love on him on social media, which he will be unable to digest. You can even use your social media to tag him in various posts and annoy him to the core.
“My boyfriend has posted some horrible-looking pictures of me on his Instagram. No matter how much I begged him to take them down, he just failed to see what was wrong with them. He refused saying ‘my profile, my choice’. So, I decided to get back at him by posting cringy, overly sentimental posts and tagging him in all of them. I knew it’s drive him up the wall and it did!” says Monica.

8. Disturb him while he is watching a movie/TV

9. Text him something irrelevant
When he is out with his friends or is attending an important event, text him gibberish or some random message about a fight you had months ago. This will leave him scratching his head, trying to figure out what you are saying and what has gone wrong this time. Bombard him with cute annoying texts.
Juana says, “My boyfriend was visiting his parents over a weekend and I was home alone. By Sunday, I was bored out of my mind and had no plans at all. So, I started sending him these really cryptic messages about heartbreak, love, moving on, closure. It freaked him out. When he called, sounding all concerned, I couldn’t stop laughing. Boy, I’d say, this is hands down the best way to playfully annoy your boyfriend over text.”
10. Record his snoring and make him listen to it
Nobody likes being told that they snore, especially not men. In case your partner snores, you must record his snoring. So when he denies it, you can play it for him on full volume. Remember not to share his recording with his friends and family, because that will cross a line and be embarrassing for him.
But hey, to take irritating your boyfriend a step further, you can always hold it over his head. For instance, if you want to mess with your boyfriend over text, you can send him a message saying if he doesn’t return home with your favorite chicken wings, you’re sharing the recording on the family/friends group.
If he takes you seriously and goes all the way to get you the wings, it’ll just double the fun of the prank.
11. Play pranks on him with his friends
Get pally with his gang and play a prank on him with their help. They will know how to annoy your boyfriend in ways you cannot even imagine! Tell him you’re calling him for “an emergency” or make a friend do the same.
You can feign an “emergency” with the help of his friends and witness him totally freaking out. Nothing too serious though, we wouldn’t want him getting the fright of his life either. Just plain old, good-hearted fun that will annoy him at first but later appreciate.
One of the pranks to make your boyfriend mad over text is to tell him that you had to urgently drive out of town for work and your car has broken down in the middle of the highway. He’d most certainly have a moment of absolute panic.
Be prepared to get an earful when he realizes that it was all for ‘harmless fun’.

12. Make him do things he dislikes the most
For instance, maybe he watched a movie or listened to a song you liked for the first time. But if you try to make him watch the same movie or listen to the same song repeatedly, he might get annoyed.
You can also quote the dialogues to annoy him even further. Boys dislike things they are forced to do, especially if you order him around.
“My boyfriend hates romcoms. Well, I’m not a fan of the genre either but I can watch a one-off every now and then. When we had just started dating, I’d always pick a mushy romantic movie for our date nights just to annoy him for I knew how much he hated them. It wasn’t long before he caught me on my trick. Sigh!” say Robin.

13. Take too much time while getting ready
When you both plan to go out, make a fuss about what to wear, what makeup to put on, etc. After that, keep trying on different clothes in front of him and take time to decide on what you will finally wear. Then, go ahead and finalize the first outfit you picked out. This will annoy your boyfriend to the core.
You can take this a notch higher by asking for his opinion on different outfits and looks you try. When he says he loves something, change out it immediately.

14. Call him repeatedly
Call him two or three times in a row, especially when he is busy. Keep giving missed calls. When he calls back and you can sense the panic in his voice ask him, ‘Are you in the mood for Chinese tonight?”
Calling just for the sake of disturbing him and having nothing relevant to talk about will irritate him. This can be fun as long as he is not driving or is on a tight schedule.
15. Be the crazy jealous girlfriend
Men usually hate it when their girlfriends ask them where they were and with whom. Therefore, pretend to be a crazy jealous girlfriend and forbid him from doing certain things. To annoy your boyfriend over text in a cute way, you can say something on the lines of ‘If you love me, you’d miss the game and spend the evening with me’.
But do not get too caught up in the charade or take this too far, as it can become a point of contention in the relationship.
A word of caution: No matter what tricks you use to annoy your boyfriend, be careful to not cross the line and remember to keep things happy and joyful in the relationship.
Playfully annoying your boyfriend is always fun as long as you aren’t doing it at an inappropriate time and making things hard for your partner. Make sure you read the room before you indulge in all these points.
