Texting. Can’t live with it. Can’t live without it. There’s no denying that technology has really changed the game when it comes to communication and relationships. You are now able to stay in contact with your partner 24/7 even when you’re far away from one another. And you shouldn’t be so naive so as to think that texting isn’t a social skill that you really have to develop if you want to be seen as someone who is likeable and attractive. There are many facets that go into making a relationship; that goes into getting a guy to like you – and you have to understand that the manner in which you text him has a lot to do with that.
Don’t be so naïve so as to think that you can just text him however you want and you’ll always be yielding positive results. Life doesn’t work like that. Relationships don’t work like that. You have to be able to rid yourself of some pretty bad texting habits if you really want to put yourself in the best possible position to make things work with him. You never know. You might actually be guilty of doing a lot of bad texting habits which are making you less and less desirable in the eyes of your man.
That’s why you need to maintain a certain sense of self-awareness if you want to make sure that you aren’t completely driving away from the people you want to get close to. And if you’re completely clueless as to what proper texting should look like, then this article is for you. Here are a few texting habits that you really need to break if you want to keep him interested in you.
1. You deliberately wait too long before you text him back.
Don’t play that game with him. He’s going to be able to tell. If you’re free to respond to his message, then do so. Don’t be playing hard-to-get with him. That kind of technique doesn’t work anymore.
2. You overdo it with the emojis instead of giving real responses.
Just because the emojis are there doesn’t mean that you should use them ALL OF THE TIME. Learn to communicate through words and sentences. Let emojis enhance the conversation; don’t let them be the subject of it.
3. You don’t acknowledge him when he compliments you.
He’s complimenting you. He’s making himself vulnerable to you. He’s showing you that he has an admiration for you, and you should be kind enough to acknowledge it. Don’t just snub over it like some kind of insignificant lament.
