Texting is a crucial part of dating. In a world filled with social media, we do more and more communicating via text – through our smartphones, through apps like Snapchat and WhatsApp. In fact, for a lot of people, texting is their preferred means of communication – actually calling on the phone is an anxiety-producing nightmare that would fit in perfectly in a Hieronymous Bosch depiction of Hell.
But regardless of whether it’s a matter of convenience, speed or a preferred method for delivering plausibly deniable nudity, the more connected we become, the more important texting becomes when we want to connect, flirt and date.
Unfortunately, that also means a lot of people are doing it wrong. While texting can be a powerful tool for generating interest and getting dates, it’s also the means by which you can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. If you’re suddenly getting radio silence from the people you’ve been texting with, you’re going to want to make sure you’re not making these deadly texting mistakes.
