Are you looking to start texting a girl you like?
This article by David Wygant gives some specific “do’s” & “don’ts” to follow…
Texting a girl is ok, but you need to be careful.
Text messaging is often the most abused and misinterpreted form of communication out there.
There are times to be texting a girl you like.
And there are times when it is better to actually call her.
Here’s four examples of what to text her about:
*** 4 Texting “Do’s” ***
1) It’s great for confirming things.
Example: “See you tonight at 7:00 at Joe’s Restaurant.”
2) It’s great as a good night kiss.
Example: “Did you get home safely?”
3) It’s great to reconfirm things.
Example: “What time are we meeting on Sunday? Let me know.”
4) It’s a great late night ping for a hook-up
It’s great for late at night when you lob in the “What are you doing right now …?” text. It’s a wonderful way to have verbal foreplay late at night when you’re looking to connect with a lover or a booty call.
Texting is all about short conversations. However, texting can get ugly.
Here are the six ways that texting a girl you like can get you into trouble:
*** 6 Texting “Don’ts” ***
1) Words are often misinterpreted.
You can text somebody something that you think is joke, and they don’t read it that way. This will get you into trouble, because they may never call you back.
2) Texting is NOT intended to cancel a date.
If you want to see somebody again, you need to call them and change the plans. Texting is the chicken way to blow someone off, whether you ever intended to see them or not.
3) Don’t ask someone out via text message.
Women especially can’t stand when a guy asks them out via text messaging. Every woman I’ve spoken to thinks that when a guy asks them out via text message, that he really is not that interested in them. And they all wish a guy would just pick up the phone. Guys, if you’re interested, have some balls and just pick up the phone! Granted, some women will say yes to a text date, but they prefer if you call them.
4) Don’t text too soon after a date
If you had a great date the night before, don’t text the person the minute you get up the next morning. Wait a few hours. Let the post-date recap settle down on both sides. Give someone a little time to think about you. There’s no harm in waiting a few hours, especially after a first date. You don’t want to look overanxious.
5) Don’t text when you should be calling
Once you’ve texted back and forth a few times, and unless one of you is in a Turkish prison being tortured by a not-so-friendly cell mate, you need to pick up the phone and have a real conversation.
6) Don’t take a lack of response personal
Just because you texted them, doesn’t mean they’re going to respond. Here’s another thing about texting. You’re texting back and forth with someone, then you send something to them and they don’t respond back. They may have gotten on the phone . . . they may have fallen asleep . .. or they may have gone into a meeting. But because texting is so impersonal, you don’t know what happened to them. Call them instead of wondering!

There’s a lot of misinterpretation that can happen via text messaging. Understanding all of this I just wrote will help you navigate the fun side of text dating, and help you avoid the bad side of text dating.
Texting is a great way for a little verbal foreplay to stay connected in someone’s life. It’s not a replacement for a phone conversation. So if you’re hoarding your cell phone minutes, I suggest you contact your cell phone provider and get some more minutes.
