When the nuances of voice, tone and body language are missing, the little gremlin voice inside often assumes the worst and interprets every message based on the filter of your past experiences. Texting him daily to say hi without giving him the chance to think of you is likely to send him packing.If you’re trying to engage in a conversation or express frustration, anger or disappointment, don’t hit Send! It will probably go better; and most importantly, you won’t have to wait for a response (or, even worse, give him ample time to write a message designed to manipulate rather than communicate). If you’re the one constantly texting him first, even if it’s just say hello or check in, you’re setting the framework for your relationship.If both of you decide to part ways because there’s no real love in the romance anymore, it’s a happy ending *wow, the irony of it all! If you’re still in love with your lover, and yet, your lover arm twists you into a breakup because they don’t care about you anymore or are dating someone else, then that’s a sad ending for you and probably a happy ending for your soon-to-be-ex.

If you feel like he’s taking “ too long” (whatever that means to you) and you often send multiple question marks instead of giving your guy some time to reply (Maybe he’s in the shower! As long as you’re not playing games, being actively engaged in your life ultimately creates a bit of mystery. Texting is great; just keep yourself in check so instead of driving your man away, you keep him interested.
And on the other hand, we still want to stay in touch with the same person that broke our heart and walked all over it!
When it comes to texting and relationships, there’s a fine line between keeping him interested and driving him away. Texting is a great medium for communication, especially when it comes to things like wishing someone good luck on an interview or confirming a meeting place.
It can also be great in a relationship to send a quick note letting your guy know you’re thinking about him (provided you aren’t only going into date number two).
