So at first I was skeptical at writing this blog post because I don’t believe love should be a game, but when it comes to texting I think there is a little game we all play.
A lot of times I find my girlfriends texting a boy the “wrong way.” I know it sounds silly but there are some things girls should just not do when texting a boy they are getting to know.
Keep it short and sweet. A lot of times we get excited when a boy texts us, and we want to keep the conversation going, but sometimes we just write too much! Keeping the text short and sweet gives the guy a little bit of a chase. Always text him back though! Especially if he texted you first, he obviously built up the courage to text you, so don’t be rude and not reply to him. Keeping it short and sweet also gives you the chance to see if he really wants to talk to you. He will continue the conversation and you can truly see if he’s trying to get to know you. Just keep in mind the shorter and sweeter the better!
He Didn’t Text Me Today: What about the times where you’ve been talking to a guy everyday for a couple of weeks, then one day he just doesn’t talk to you the entire day? What’s up with that!? Okay, don’t FREAK OUT lol this is normal. Guys don’t even like texting as much as girls do (well most of them.) One thing we should know is that guys usually only text to say whats up, make plans, and then that’s usually it. They aren’t girls, so if this guy you’ve been talking to for a couple of weeks all of a sudden one day doesn’t text you, don’t worry, just go on with your day. I’m positive he will text you soon, and when he does, just simply respond like it never even bothered you
Texting First: I think this is a situation all of us girls dwell on. Should I text him, or should I just wait… Honestly I think it depends on the situation. NO I do not believe it is a smart choice to text a boy first most of the time. I think the guy should man up and pursue a girl if he wants to get to know her, BUT I also believe guys enjoy it when a girl textes them first too. It shows them that you do enjoy talking to them and eases their nerves on thinking they might be annoying you. Come on, they have feelings just like us… they smile at a good morning text too! But on the contrary, I really wouldn’t advise you to text a guy first that you are just getting to know, that is only for situations where you have been talking to this guy for a while and you are comfortable with him.
Do Not: Do not text a guy over and over if he doesn’t reply. He’s not replying for a reason, just give him space. Texting him over and over is just the wrong thing to do.
ALRIGHT, well I just gave away all of my secrets. So my game is completely ruined……
Just consider these little things when texting a guy, but remember love isn’t a game and I’m not implying that you should play games, but it’s always nice to have guide lines when talking to a new boy!
(a real guy will call you and not text you anyways)
