The Texting Game- Female Edition
So you meet a guy and he’s cute. Super cute. And you two hit it off really well. Everything is going great and then he drops the N bomb. (not what you’re thinking). Number. It either goes “let me get your number” or “here’s my number. Text me sometime.” This is great…at first.
Then you get to the obsessive part. Kind of like Ginnifer Goodwin in “He’s Just Not That Into You,” but a little more modern. Like we aren’t waiting by our landline phone all night or keeping our flip open during downward dog. We just consistently check that our phone is on vibrate and out loud, our texts are going through, nothing else is open that could slow it down, and that we always always have it within hearing distance. It’s actually quite disturbing.
Then we think of every excuse of why he hasn’t texted us like he’s busy, he’s at work, he’s sleeping, he recently enlisted for the army and is halfway across the world. Anything to put our minds at ease.
Guys—why is it so hard to text a girl after you get her number. If you aren’t interested then don’t ask. It’d save us a lot of time.
And then we have the designated time-texters. Aka they text us at certain times without fail. If he’s only texting you on Friday and Saturday (or any night when he’s not working early the next morning) asking what you are up to for the night it means one thing—>boo-tee-call. If that’s all you want from him then go for it! I mean we need it too right?
I had a guy text me almost every other night asking to hang out at 11 pm. What is there to do at 11pm? Exactly.
Girls are crazy. We notice when you’ve used Facebook, twitter, foursquare.. Anything that you use your phone for. We realize that you haven’t texted our answered our texts. Playing hard to get isn’t always the way to get us to like you. Sometimes it just makes you look like an ass.
Why can’t it be like the old days? Call me. Ask me to dinner. And take it from there!
