Top 6 reasons why a girl has sent you a picture of herself

 
Nowadays, text conversations can seem incomplete without emojis, gifs and a few pictures. Usually when a girl likes a guy, she’ll feel more comfortable sending pictures without him even asking.
 
Here are the top 6 reasons why a girl would send a picture of herself to a guy:
 

01To make sure you’re paying attention
 
Girls sometimes send pictures to guys to make sure they are paying attention. This is especially common during the courting or dating stage, when things aren’t serious yet, to put themselves ahead of the competition. Other times, they do it to make sure your focus is where it needs to be in a relationship.

04To spice up the conversation
 
If the conversation is getting boring, or she feels like you’re not interested, a girl might send a picture of herself to spice up the conversation. This does not have to be a sexy picture. It can be a selfie or picture of her actively doing something so you two will have something to talk about.
