One of the most popular questions I get is about texting. When should you do it? When should you not do it? I think this chart just about sums it up.
Personally, I think texting is great for sweet nothings during the day, to tell someone you’re running late, to ask for directions, or when you’re in a meeting and too busy to talk. Otherwise, as a means of communication, it SUCKS. There should never ever ever be a meaningful conversation that takes place via text. And if you disagree, don’t get mad at me when your boyfriend breaks up with you via text.
A larger version of the chart is available by going here.
"Give the guy a chance to prove he might have what you need for a satisfying relationship."
I am a firm believer in dating at least 4 seasons and we are already in our 3rd season of love. We have discussed marriage and will revisit the idea this October.
"I was able to learn from others’ experiences without having to go through all of it myself. That’s why the Inner Circle was invaluable."
I went from being unsure and inexperienced to having a great boyfriend who adores me and treats me really well and is now actively thinking and talking about marriage and kids.
"I'm so glad I didn't give up, no one should ever give up. You have to kiss A LOT of toads to find your prince."
I knew I needed to in order to attract the love of my life. I had romantic dreams and the reality of the dating scene was a wake-up call… A man with answers about men! That is the "golden ticket"!
"Seriously…everything you described would happen, happened!"
He emailed me, he called me, he asked for a date, he called back, he contacts me everyday, he took down his profile first, he stopped dating the other women he was dating and asked me to “date exclusively” because he wants to focus on getting to know me better. All I did was say yes.
"9 months and 14 first dates later, I met the man of my dreams! Love is not a big enough word for how we feel!"
It's only been 106 days, Evan, but they have been the BEST 106 days of my life! Thank you for leading me in the right direction, giving me the confidence to believe in myself and helping me find the love I deserve.
