With the insane amount of texting today, most women have already experienced their fair share of texting disasters. Shameless drunk texting, excessive over-texting, or just sending that one last text that you just KNEW would push him over the edge.
Think it’s about time you learned exactly how to avoid some of the most common mistakes that will make him run in the opposite direction? Here are 4 kinds of texts that guys HATE reading, and you need to stop sending.
1. The “What’s Wrong?” Text
Not all questions are created equal, and if there is one question that you should NEVER ask a guy via text, it’s that one.
Guys absolutely CRINGE when they see that pop up on their screen just ask any guy.
“What’s wrong” is basically the equivalent of texting, “I’m feeling insecure about us, please make me feel better”.
Don’t get me wrong, guys DO want to make you feel better, but not if it means telling you 5 times a day that everything is ok. It gets boring quickly.
If you’re noticing that he is a little less talkative or has been surly the last couple of days, just give him space. He will love you for it.
2. Bad Selfies
Photos are easy to take, but just as easy to delete – and sometimes, that’s the better option.
Occasionally you might take a photo that isn’t exactly…. flattering. But you don’t see it straight away, and send it right off into the world without knowing the kind of damage it’s going to cause.
Don’t misrepresent your personal brand by falling prey to this texting disaster. Before pressing send on any happy snaps, ask these two questions:
1. Bad lighting/angle?
2. Would I cringe if it ended up posted on Social Media?
If the answer to either of these is ‘yes’, then that photo belongs in the trash, not your BF’s inbox.
3. The Nagging Text
Boys don’t nag. They just don’t. So they have NO IDEA why you insist on doing it, and it’s definitely a huge turn off.
So, remember to never send those annoying little nit-picky texts chock full of passive aggressive vibes – he’s not going to like it.
Instead of this “naggy” type of message:
“Did you make the bed this morning?”
Try spinning it in a playful way, that will make him WANT to do whatever you’d like him to do, instead of turning his phone off:
“Make the bed…and you might get lucky :-)”
Every time you have the urge to nag, remember that it is a total passion killer, and turn those texts into positive messages.
4. The Tell-All Text
If there’s one golden rule to seduction, it’s mystery. When you leave your partner craving more, they’ll keep coming back for it.
Unfortunately, as chatty as we ladies are, we tend to be frequent over sharers (hey, sharing is caring, right?). You know, life-story on a first date, the breakdown of our entire day in one text message… we’ve all been there.
As tempting as it is to continue this behavior, you need to stop. Learn to share just enough to pique his interest and stay on his mind, and he’ll be dragging the whole story out of you in no time flat.
So now you’re aware of the most common disaster texts, and how you can avoid them! Follow these rules for texting that special guy in your life, and you’ll be well on your way to having fun and harnessing texting’s powerful seduction potential.
