Online dating and texting
The worst thing that could ever happen is to give her a whiff of how desperate you are for this date.When she sends you a text like "What are you doing today?Or as an alternative, you could send one simple text as a reply, “When you get a chance, give me a call.” This lets the person know how you’d like the communication to flow.Eventually, you may be forced to make a choice between enduring a six-texts-for-every-call communication pattern or letting a promising potential suitor go.Of course, if a person likes to communicate primarily via text and you hate it, you’re probably not a very good long-term match.If it feels difficult to cut loose a possible romantic candidate because of annoying text habits, just fast forward mentally into a life where you’re living with the habit. A person who can’t respectfully communicate with you in the manner you prefer is probably going to be pretty bad at the kind of compromise that is vital for a relationship to grow and thrive.In addition, you’re usually relaying some information to a friend that doesn’t have any impact on how they feel about you. ” But a new love interest isn’t looking for the most efficient form of communication.
Or maybe you got some face-to-face interaction before the texting flurry began.If You Are a Serial Texter: We’re sure you’re a nice person, but texting is not the most flattering manner of communication.It seems to connote a certain, “I really don’t have time to talk to you. ” With your friends that’s fine, because you already have a relationship.(I've never gotten past texting; I actually have no idea what real dating is like.) Trust me on this.If you get a well-typed, thoughtful paragraph about her bad day or his dinner suggestions, the most impactful response is a nice "k." Or "cool." Or how about "ha." That one always works.
