You’re lucky I’m not a lawyer, ’cause then I would have had to charge you 2.83 just for reading this. ‘MAM’, perhaps — it stands for ‘musing and mulling’.
Dear readers — kindly keep it under 250 words, willya. Also, you are not allowed to put ‘lol’ in a letter unless you actually laugh out loud . As in, “I wonder if I’m overthinking this whole thing (MAM).” Because you musing and mulling.
I also followed your Tao of Dating principles, which was beyond enlightening for me, as it turned the tables and made me responsible for doing my own housework and trying to be the goddess and I still think ‘What would a goddess do?
When you send a good morning text message you are basically telling the other person “I woke up today and you were the first thing on my mind”. You’re following bad advice Question: If someone you liked waited hours – or even days – to respond to your text messages, what would you think?
Ditto for good night text messages, which say “I’m going to sleep and I still can’t stop thinking of you”. Chances are, you’d think they’re simply not interested in you, and you’d probably stop texting them.
The important thing is that you realize that the signs are there. Do you know how annoying it is to be answering one text message *BING! This can be pretty damaging for your relationship if you’re actually interested in starting a real relationship.
* suddenly they ask you another question via text?! If you keep breaking up a conversation with random messages then your partner is going to become confused, and you’re going to be feeling dejected because you’re doing most of the work. Learning how to stop yourself from texting him is a valuable lesson! You’re dishing too much, too fast There are certain conversations you should never have via text with a new guy.
While you’re at it, don’t tell him that your mom is pressuring you to go home for Christmas, but you want to avoid the pain and misery of spending a week with uncles and aunts that drive you up the wall (think Bridget Jones).
