But it’s not HIS fault if the texting persists; ultimately it’s yours. But if you want to see me, you’re gonna have to try a little harder. ”You seem like a good guy, Alan, but I’m not looking for a texting buddy, I’m looking for a boyfriend. Take care.” Don’t be afraid that you’re losing your potential boyfriend. You’re freeing yourself of the burden of waiting for an indifferent man to show you he cares.
Some women are happy to get down to business the night they meet; others will wait weeks or months before doing the deed.
In other words, if a woman knocks boots with a guy too soon, does she automatically nix her chances for long-term love—or is that old-fashioned nonsense in today’s modern-day dating scene?

But if you imagine that sending a daily barrage of texts, such as “driving to work, heading to lunch, or just left a meeting” is a romantic way to show you are thinking of your partner, think again.” To clarify – if these texts are used in ADDITION to phone, email, and actual dates, they’re fine.
