(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.
Chances are good that you’re going to tire them out and quickly get labelled a dreaded “pest”. You just scored the digits of your second hottest prospect on OKCupid and you're ready to start scheduling actual dates.But don't start tapping away at that touchscreen just yet.As a general rule, keep your phone away from you when you’re drinking. As with actual person-to-person conversations, try to keep your thumbs away from your phone when you’re upset.You might say something that will only make the situation worse, and even if you don’t mean any harm, there’s always that chance for your text messages to be misconstrued.The important thing is that you realize that the signs are there. Do you know how annoying it is to be answering one text message *BING! This can be pretty damaging for your relationship if you’re actually interested in starting a real relationship.
