Dating text messages
Consider this your guide to relationship texting etiquette.
Whether it is sent from a cell phone or Black Berry, a text message is a quick and convenient way to get in touch with someone.
(I've never gotten past texting; I actually have no idea what real dating is like.) Trust me on this.
If you get a well-typed, thoughtful paragraph about her bad day or his dinner suggestions, the most impactful response is a nice "k." Or "cool." Or how about "ha." That one always works.
Text message dating is dating at your pace with less emotional risk.
Unlike conversations that occur face-to-face or over the phone, text messaging allows you to say what you want to say while withholding intimacy.
