You've scored the number -- well, that's a start.
Now it's up to you to make sure you don't end up on the blocked caller list. Texting your crush can create a mix of emotions for both yourself and the other party. The feeling of anticipation and excitement while awaiting those responses can be both a scary and exhilarating feeling to say the least. Technology has taken over and sometimes texting can get the best of us causing us to not make the wisest decisions when it comes to what we send.
Be mindful of those cute emojis and essay form text messages that can steer your crush in the opposite direction. To make sure you don't run into any of these mistakes or send your crush running for the hills -- here are five things you shouldn't do when texting your potential lover.
Don't Send Two Texts In A Row
Relax. Pretty sure your crush has a life just like you do. Give them a chance to reply. They got the first text, no need to flood their inbox with a second one.
Don't Wait Hours To Reply
Okay, of course two can play that game -- but just because it took them longer than usual to reply, doesn't necessarily mean you have to be petty and do the same. You don't have to play hard to get. If you like this person, make it known. Don't over do it by making them wait hours and hours for a reply. Nobody likes mind games.
Be Mindful Of What You Send
Sometimes your emotions can get the best of you and you can easily get caught up in the moment, but be careful of what you send because once you press send -- there's no looking back.
Responding With One Word
Double standards -- leave them at the door. You can't trip when they sent one word responses when you clearly do the same thing. If you want the conversation to flow and be engaging, you need to write a little more than just word or don't expect a reply.
Over Analyzing Every Message
Don't look too deep into messages. They're messages, they aren't meant to be read so deeply. If you want a better explanation or to go into depth -- meet in person and speak. Every message doesn't require an analyzation. Over analyzing will leave you textless and lonely.
