Rules of online dating and texting
You send a text when you don’t want to talk to someone, but you want to let them know you’re thinking of them.And what can be more flattering than conveying, electronically, the idea that you DON’T want to talk to the woman you’re courting?
Is it too early in the dating process for phone contact? I think it should be used exclusively for only a handful of things: Letting someone know that you’re lost or running late. But anyone who’s ever used it knows how conversations can easily take a wrong turn.If so many people will vibe with Carrie's corny ass, it's not like I'm going to be hella judged if my opening joke doesn't land.The emotional one-liners were also really fun, because who among us ).What you don’t want to do is sound like a stick-in-the-mud, my-way-or-the-highway woman.But you can refuse to play his game and still make him feel attractive, which will keep him chasing you through whatever medium you choose. Now now, don’t hate on men – I’m a single guy who is dating, and women I meet text me all the time. It drove me crazy for some of the reasons you talked about – a 5 minute phone call is so much nicer, more respectful, more intimate. It’s how Gen-Y communicates (I’m older than Gen-Y.) I finally decided to stop resisting it, and it doesn’t bother me anymore.
