When a woman is dating a man, she is likely to feel the need to be in constant contact with him via texting, calls, or Facebook. It’s important to know about texting mistakes that you must avoid while you are dating, so that you don’t drive your man away.
1. Don’t text while you spend time with your boyfriend
Texting while you are out on a date with him is not only rude, but he may lose interest in taking you out on a date just because you may do your own things. Try to keep your phone away while you are on a date with him. How would you feel if he texted underneath the table? Insulted, yes? Your boyfriend would certainly feel the same if he saw you do that.
2. Don’t text him constantly
When it comes to texting and writing emails, a lot of women are often more communicative than men. If you always write plenty of texts to your boyfriend asking him about where he is or what he’s doing, you should start controlling yourself, because you may come across as nagging. Don’t text him too frequently. You must allow your date to take the initiative of getting in touch with you too.
3. Avoid becoming too mushy
Usually when a woman is fond of a man, she tends to write her heart out. She writes texts that exceed her character limits and runs into some more messages. And while a woman may find this romantic, a man can often be turned off by it. Don’t be mushy while texting your boyfriend and don’t pour out all your feelings into your messages to him.
4. Don’t use too many emoticons
It’s important to avoid using too many emoticons. Use them sparsely otherwise they will lose their meaning. If you put a smiley at the end of each text message you send to your man, he may stop noticing them because of their overuse. Use emoticons only when you want to convey really important meaning in your text messages.
5. Don’t get mired in long text conversations
It’s okay to send your boyfriend a few text messages asking him about his day and how he is. Even if your date replies to all your text massages, it doesn’t mean that he likes it. Sometimes exchanging 3 or 4 text messages in a couple of hours can be enough. Don’t lengthen the conversation over a text in order to hold his attention. If you need to have a long conversation, just call him.
6. Avoid acting unavailable when your date texts you
Don’t take hours to reply to him over a text every single time and don’t play hard to get while dating, otherwise it may backfire. This strategy works great when you’re trying to get a boy’s attention, but not when you’re already dating him.
7. Avoid conveying something important via text message
Never talk about important matters over a text, because your boyfriend may not like it. When you need to talk about important things related to your relationship, it’s better to meet him in person or at least call him. Saying something intense, asking for forgiveness or demanding a breakup over a text is a big mistake that you should never make while you are dating a man.
