Texting is a man’s best friend. It’s non-committal, void of emotion yet capable of driving a girl crazy. But you have to be careful with the words you use via text, especially after a first date. Women read into everything, turning a smiley face, or a choice of phrase into an emotional connection that you never intended on making. So before you pick up the phone and randomly push buttons, you might want to think about the message you might be sending.


A smiley face means ‘I like you’ and a winky face means ‘I really like you’. So unless you really like her, don’t use emoticons whilst texting. Before you know it, you will be in a relationship.

After 10 PM

Maybe you just got home, or maybe you are lying in bed and forgot to text her back. Either way, texting after 10 tells her you were thinking about her while laying in bed. Which can only mean one thing..

Text Book Grammar

Just because you’re on qwerty or swipe, doesn’t mean you can throw all grammar or spelling out the window. Most girls are turned off by the laziness and the ignorance of text talk. And don’t forget about your ‘you’re’ and ‘your’s.

Watch Your Abreves

She’s not that funny. So slow down on the LOL’s, stop ROTFL and laughing your ass off. Use complete sentences and sprinkle in more variety into your conversation.

Be Textually Active

Boys are infamous for waiting hours to text a girl back, if at all. You received a text during your work out, or your drive home and you forgot to text her back. You may not think that it’s a big deal to text her back a few hours later, but she thinks you are totally not into her if your texts are coming too late.


Never sext after a first date, and when you do start sexting, take it very slow. You need to know each other pretty well to know what will and won’t fly, and never send pictures!

Have you have ever been misunderstood via text?
