Let me continue on with the topic of texting. It is now the way of the dating world. Relationships start, end, and live through texting. Heck, most of the people between the ages of 13-40 practically do all of their communicating through texting. So, there should probably be a few guidelines regarding something so central to our lives.
First, keep it to 160 characters! It's limited in size for a reason. If you can't keep it short then you should probably just call. No one likes receiving 6 different texts that combine into a giant novel.
Second, if you wouldn't say it in person, what makes it ok to say over text? This can go two different ways. If you would never say something rude to someone's face, don't text it. If you don't have the guts to tell someone you love them, then maybe your feelings aren't as strong as you thought.
Third, when the convo is over, let it end. You do not have to be the last one to text. Most times it is better to let him or her be the last to respond (it leaves them wanting more!) Think about it, how annoyed do you get when someone responds with pointless texts just to keep a conversation about nothing going? If you said it doesn't bother you and you enjoy staring at your phone all night, maybe you should refer to my last post...
