Texting is an important part of dating. When you meet someone new your first move after you have met is likely to start texting. It is an easy way out if you really want to chat with someone but you don’t have the courage to call them up.
However, even texting isn’t as easy as it may sound. It has gone from random texts to a ‘game’. There are dos and don’ts and rules you must follow. Plus, texting isn’t only for a couple in the dating phase.
You can text even if you’re married. Things don’t have to be boring once you have tied the know. Texting can be used to keep the spice alive and even give a boost to your sex life after marriage.
It is therefore high time you improve your texting game because today texting is the new and efficient way of staying in touch.
Here are some tips for you to take your texting game to the next level.
1# Use Emoticons
Make it a habit to use emojis to convey your messages. They can, in fact, often be more useful than text messages since they can add a zing to your char and also make your chat window look more attractive.
One emoji is enough to express your mood and feelings over a text. It can even be used to flirt. Ever seen the kiss or wink emoji? You only need to know where and how to use it and you’ll be good to go.
2# Be quick at replying
When your significant other leaves you a message they usually wait for a prompt reply. They expect an instant response, and a delay may put ‘em off.
Of course, you may be busy at times. Hence, a few exceptions are okay but you must reply quickly when you can. Being online and neglecting their message can kill the mood and also cause a rift between you two as they may feel ignored.
3# Share Pictures
Improve your texting game by sharing a bunch of pictures to go with your messages. Share a picture of the new cuisine you are trying or just some new place you are at.
Sending a bunch of selfies every now and then can also be a part of a good texting game. It’s all about virtually being with your partner.
4# Send voice notes
Once you get better at texting with your romantic interest, step a little forward and try to send them a voice note. They may be more time consuming than text messages but they’re a nice way to show that you’re willing to go the extra mile for the other person.
However, remember that people are different. Not everyone may enjoy sending or receiving voice notes so be sure to be aware of this factor as well.
5# Have a routine
Build a routine. Send your partner a message every morning and wish them a great day. You may also add a selfie to make it more interesting.
Similarly, send a goodnight text before you hit the bed, even if you two did not speak the whole day. It’s more of a ritual and a reminder that you’re there.
6# Use Abbreviations or Maybe Not
The world of text messaging is full of abbreviations and slangs like ASAP, LOL, and ROFL. While they’re very commonly used, not everyone may be comfortable using such languages so be careful when talking to your partner.
Follow these simple tips and you will soon be a pro in the game. It’s all about being attentive and fun.
