I want you to know that you were on my mind and that I actually KIND OF care about you. And I definitely didn't just arrive.;)I want you to know I'm flirting with you.
Consider this your guide to relationship texting etiquette.
But please, don't follow these rules for face-to-face conversation.
Sending messages like "we need to talk" with no follow-up for hours is a good way to keep her anticipating your next move. For example, an appropriate response to the question, "What are you doing tonight? Are you advertising a two-bedroom apartment with your male roommates? This is important: Don't call someone you're just casually texting, and don't call someone who first texted you. It's way too soon for voice-to-voice communication. Just like real life, people like it when you validate their good sense of humor, so give a hearty "BAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA" each time he says something mildly amusing. Respond to all of his jokes include multiple exclamation points at the end of positive responses.
Every couple is different, and the waiting game doesn't always pay off as planned. " would be: "hdd 2 br w bros." Notice there are several possible meanings here. "But wouldn't it be so much easier to arrange this with a five-minute phone call instead of a three-day texting conversation? Alternate by throwing in a few "lols" or a "rofl" just to prove you're an equal opportunity acronym user. How else can you ensure the recipient knows you really are excited about her choice of restaurant?
If your boo isn't responding as quickly as you'd like, send him three or four more messages to make sure he's for sure getting your messages/hasn't died in a car crash. Then make sure to communicate panic in your responses. If you're upset with your mate, a period at the end of a short response will assure her you mean business. If you fear the punctuation mark is making you seem too eager, replace it with an emoticon.
Add commas, quotation marks and other confusing markings if you seek a more literary vibe. Emoticons are the best and if you don't use them and instead rely on the power of the written language to attempt to convey emotions like poets have done for thousands of years, then you're a soulless machine.
Definitely have NOT been checking my phone all day.
Kind of worried and annoyed that I haven't heard from you but I'm going to casually say this so it seems like I just now realized we are supposed to meet up. I'm definitely not overthinking everything you say. I basically just wanted an excuse to text you without saying "hey." Also, I want you to think I'm cool so I included a show that I saw in your status one time.
HAHAHAHAI want you to know I think you're hilarious.
