Text dating is one of the easiest dating systems in this day and age. It’s easy, simple to use, stress free, and it doesn’t get in the way of our busy lifestyles. It basically works like this: you login to a texting dating program like Match or Meetmoi and give them your details and the details of the person you are looking for. Then, the program will start sending you matches and when they find someone you’re interested in, you start texting them. It’s as simple as it sounds. The only hard part is going from text dating to real dating.
Texting is very addictive. It starts off as a fun thing to do and then turns into something you can’t get enough of. It’s not hard to find people that are now communicating more through text messaging than in real life. It’s a very unhealthy lifestyle especially since real dating has so many more benefits to it.
The real mission with text dating is to find someone you match up with, send a few messages to see if there is any interest, and then meet up for a bite to eat or something casual. Below, I’m going to explain the 3 crucial text dating laws you must follow if you want to better your chances of meeting in the real world.
Law #1 – Text date for no more than two weeks with a person – After two weeks of text dating someone, you start building a connection over the phone and then it becomes a lot harder to move into the real world. Basically, texting is the first step in getting the relationship to the real world. If you continue past two weeks, consider your relationship stuck on the phone.
Law #2 – Be important and valuable – For men, remember to flirt, banter and communicate that you’re an important person and don’t instantly respond back when she texts you. For women, keep a flirty context and drop lines that will turn him on, such as, “just looking cute (or sexy) for this party I’m going to” and give him signals whenever he does something that works for you. The key point is, we don’t act on something unless we see there is value, so come across valuable when you text.
Law #3 – Move into an easy and casual first meeting – Never make your first meeting a huge event. Why? Well for one, you don’t know the person and you don’t want to waste your time and energy on someone you don’t know yet (remember you are valuable and important) and two, you’re not trying to impress them, but instead trying to see if they are worth pursuing. I usually grab a cup of coffee or a quick bite for 10-15 minutes and then take off to something I got to do. Now if there is chemistry, I will put a little bit more time and energy into our second meeting. Remember, you’re not there to impress the person, but rather, you’re there to have fun and qualify if they are right for you.
Remember: use texting as a way to build a relationship not a place to have a relationship.
