Rules of dating and texting

To be frank, I’m not a 100 per cent sure, but I hear it’s somewhere along the lines of a year, maybe a month, if you’re Sound a bit ridiculous?It helps us clearly communicate difficult tones of voice like sarcasm through text, without accidentally offending the other party.However, there comes a certain point in a conversation where emoji just stops making sense and become annoying.

For some strange reason, somewhere along the relatively short period of time since texting became a thing, we’ve come to believe that responding to a message immediately after receiving it is a big fat NO.When it comes to texting and its role in dating and new relationships, you and your partner may have a very different style and approach.For instance, you may text non-stop with your friends, always utilize emojis and basically correspond in abbreviations all day long.While you should feel free to express your true thoughts, complaining about the weather, talking smack about your roommate and/or ripping on your colleague’s incorrect work is the incorrect texting approach.Remember, upbeat and positive texts often yield positive relationship results. While you may want your love interest to respond to you right away, it’s important to be respectful of his or her time when you send off a barrage of texts.
