Dating guy flirts
So let your fingers do the talking if you must, but proceed with caution. But add impassioned back-and-forth texting to the mix and it could be too exciting.
Bored at work, you hear that longed for beep of a new message and practically jump out of your seat.
The relationships that have the greatest chance of deepening and lasting are those that are more even-keeled and not characterized by such dramatic ups and downs. In real life, when you’re flirting with a guy you get instant gratification; you say something cute, and he looks at you like he wants to rip your clothes off.
In text life, you could write the most adorably flirtatious message, and get nothing back but crickets.
This guy may still want to rip your clothes off, but you won’t know for hours or even days until he graces you with a reply.
This kind of excitement, particularly as you are just getting to know someone, sets you up for spikes of extreme highs and lows.
Being catapulted to such heights of bliss by texts from this guy means there’s nowhere to go but down. The flip-side of texting titillation, waiting for a response that doesn’t always come immediately, can knock you right off cloud nine.
You quickly dash off a reply and then stare at your phone, eagerly waiting for him to respond.
When he does, you’re so giddy you want to burst into a happy dance, but decide not to because your co-worker is giving you the stank eye.
Often finding yourself heavy texting with a crush or brand new love interest, you delight in the back-and-forth repartee, the dings announcing his new message, the way that crafting witty responses keeps your brain sharp and you on your toes. “Why don’t they ever just pick up the f**king phone and call?! You’re happy to stick to texts for as long as possible.
When you talk to your friends, they complain that the men they’re dating text too much. Far from being daunted by a guy who never picks up the phone, you’ll dodge his calls and let him go straight to voicemail so you can text him back.
