Thanks to a general rut with *looks at hand* "casual dating," I decided to let Carrie Bradshaw run my dating life for a day.
The rules were simple: I'd only talk to guys using the OG HBO queen's most iconic (or cringeworthy) lines. Much like the show's breaking of the fourth wall, there were inconsistencies.
The experiment underlined the fact that most guys are at least willing to with conversation — even if they're just doing their best to respond to weird, cryptic monologues.
If so many people will vibe with Carrie's corny ass, it's not like I'm going to be hella judged if my opening joke doesn't land.
“Some fun ways to flirt include, ‘Can’t stop thinking about last night,’ or, ‘I think I’m blushing today.’ This will show him that you’re attracted to him, and he’ll feel flattered,” says Julie Spira, dating expert and founder of Cyber-Dating Expert.
You are awesome, and you have no reason to be nervous about texting a guy.
Likewise, if they are bombarding you with texts, then maybe they are going to be a lot of work – AKA . Even if you are a night owl and 1am is 9pm to other mortals, don’t go there until s/he has a chance to get to know you.
Some people like this, some people don’t – it’s up to you to decide. You’re being a “Jack Of All Topics” Once again, continuity is super important. Most people see late night texts as an attempt at a “booty call”.
A flirty text relationship should work the same way a conversation works in real life.
Texts should be back and forth – a message, a reply, and so on.
I love when guys say fancy shit like "intrigued" online because you know IRL he doesn't even say anything when he flips you over halfway during sex.
But yeah, tell me how intrigued you are, old sport. But good to know that this guy is proudly "pro-dildo." I don't know any women who are "anti-masturbation" for men but I do plenty of guys who think they're special snowflakes for acknowledging that women masturbate. Having a script erased a lot of the pressure I feel when trying to drum up conversation with a stranger.
If you haven’t tried it, probably many of your friends have.
