Dating in the early stages: 10 messaging behaviors to remember when texting.

I remember thinking after my first texting experience. I was completely off base. A few years later, I was constantly texting and driving up my father’s phone bill to absurd levels.

I wasn’t texting with men I liked until much later. Moreover, there was no manual on how to SMS someone you like that I could find. I used to compose lengthy messages and ask a slew of follow-up questions. It isn’t a secret that you are thinking that. I was a real pain in the neck. Isn’t that irrelevant?

It’s not easy to text someone you like, but who said it was?

1. Breathe in and relax.

The fact that you’re enthused about this person doesn’t mean you should overdo it. Breathe deeply and be kind to yourself. A tense state of mind will cause you to second guess everything you say. In no way should you put your date on a pedestal. They’re only human; therefore, it’s acceptable if they don’t like you. If not you, then someone will.

2. Texting too much is a bad habit. 

I know it’s thrilling to talk to them all day, but you have a life outside your phone, don’t you? It’s not a good appearance to be highly available. Why? As a sign that I’m a codependent. The only other thing you’re doing is texting them constantly. They need to see that you care, which I am sure you do.

3. A text should not supplant a one-on-one conversation.

A face-to-face meeting is preferable to texting when you’re just getting to know a person. You need to see the genuine person, not the one they portray via texts or social media.

Aside from setting up dates, texting can be used for various other purposes.

4. Do not doubt what you're receiving. 

Everyone wants to be considered humorous, intelligent, and likable by the people they care about. Texting someone is a great way to convey these qualities.

Nevertheless, this does not imply that you must examine each and every communication you send to them to ensure that it does not offend or turn them off. Don’t second-guess what you write; instead, focus on being truthful.

5. Both of you must strike up a dialogue. 

It’s not a good indicator if you’re the only one who is constantly texting. That’s a person we’ve all been, and it never ends well. Both parties are comfortable enough to start and continue a healthy and mutually supportive conversation in a texting relationship. Stop putting in so much effort if you can tell that you are the one doing it.

6. When you have the time, respond.

Right you are. Staying on your phone isn’t necessary. Stay focused on what you’re doing when you’re working or going to school. Whenever you have a spare moment, send an SMS to your date. Texting them is not a game you should put yourself in danger just to send.

7. Write with proper grammar.

Please, although I know this is a pain, use good language and spelling when writing. It isn’t a big thing if there are a few typos here and there, but people enjoy reading phrases that they don’t have to decipher. Poor spelling and grammar put off readers, if you didn’t already know. So, get your act together.

8. Know when to call it a day. 

When a person expresses interest in you, you don’t have to text them all day and all night. Recognize when it’s appropriate to put a stop to a conversation. Terminate the conversation early if you believe it is nearing its end. It’s fine if you start a new chat in a few hours. However, don’t force a conversation to continue if you don’t have to.

9. Be aware of the tone you use.

If you have a dry or sarcastic sense of humor, it may not necessarily translate well in written form. You can, however, show off your individuality. Be succinct, and use emojis sparingly to emphasize essential points; read your message aloud to yourself to ensure that your message is understood.

10. Essential discussions should only be had face-to-face.

It’s fine to talk about your childhood in a text message conversation, but don’t go into too much detail. Some topics should only be discussed on dates in person.

With so much time on their hands, it’s easy for people to procrastinate when it comes to saying what they want. For some interactions, it’s helpful to see a person’s faces and reactions up close.

In the early days of dating, texting may be a real challenge. You’re tense and eager to make a good impression on your date. If you keep these behaviors in mind, you’ll be on the right track.

Texting has opened up a new universe of opportunities.
