Is there a worse feeling than when the girl you like leaves you hanging?
Perhaps there is but in that moment, it sure does suck donkey balls.
So for all the men out there who didn’t get a text back – they’ve surveyed 100 single women to discover what they were doing wrong.
To all the virgins.. Thanks for nothing!
First of all, let’s look at some texting habits that women hate:
- Desperate & Needy
“Hey girl, I’m lonely and you look so cute.” This is a favorite one with many men out there and a guaranteed way to signal that you’re only looking for a quick hook-up. Even if that’s the case, you don’t have to broadcast it right away. Keep a little of the mystery and focus on being genuine instead.
- Talking dirty
You gotta’ know when to pull this one out. Too soon and you’ll set off those warning bells ringing in her head!!
- Reveal jealous traits
We’re all guilty of this one from time to time but you don’t have to type up every feeling you have. Some are best dealt with privately and objectively. Remember, confidence is the most attractive trait!
- Not funny anymore
Humor is a great way to break the ice and lighten the mood but there’s a time and place for everything. By all means, make her laugh if you can but don’t force it if it isn’t there.
Other texting tips:
- Don’t wait too long! Stats show that women want to be contacted within the first 48 hours – wait any longer than that and you just might miss the boat.
- Don’t settle for an online message or a Facebook note, most women prefer a real text or even a phone call.
