Rules of dating and texting

Someone has to initiate it at some point or another, why can’t that person be you? So, if it starts to feel like the other party isn’t as interested or putting in as much as effort into the conversation as you, I suggest you consider moving on.

“Don’t want to look too thirsty,” you tell yourself as you count down the minutes before it’s socially acceptable for you to respond to a text from a crush. Yeah, so are some of the texting “rules” listed below, but times are changing.

Texting is one of the unavoidable essentials of modern dating.

When you text without fully comprehending his or her daily commitments, responsibilities and time allotments, you can easily misinterpret a belated response and/or a truncated conversation as a lack of interest. Along these lines, it’s important that you stop overanalyzing every single text that you send and receive, such as obsessing over the exact wording, the use of capitalization and/or the frequency.

It can be very uncomfortable when someone continues to blow our phone up with paragraph after paragraph, when we’re trying our best to politely kill the conversation with an apathetic “lol”, “haha”, or even a “k” if you’re bold enough.

And in the event that someone does request sexting, proceed with extreme caution.

Always remember that even on apps like Snapchat, there’s no escaping the dreaded screenshot.

Gone are the good old days of waiting by the phone, willing your significant other to call.
