Dating by texting

I’ve seen countless women create complete fantasies and get drawn in — often before they even meet a man. With no tonality in messages, texting back and forth creates enormous opportunities to misread and misunderstand intent.

I can’t tell you how many emails I’ve received from coaching clients with a text conversation pasted in and the question: What do you think he means (aka WTF)????

The worst thing that could ever happen is to give her a whiff of how desperate you are for this date.

But I’ll say it again, doing a bunch of texting first creates an unrealistic sense of connection.These women are all dating after 40…some in their 60s and 70s. They had one date three weeks prior, and since it’s only been texting. Texting has certainly complicated dating and relationships.“Sue” connected with a man on Tinder, they had a couple emails, and then he started texting. I’m going to give you some straight scoop about what texting really means and doesn’t mean. 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.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.
