Just got a new phone number online? Haven’t met yet? Haven’t even talked on the phone yet? Grab that smart phone and start texting!
These days texting is an essential part of online dating. It will help you get to know the person you are with for a long period of time. While you spend days randomly texting here and there, the comfort levels will increase and go way up.
By the time you meet for a first date, comfort levels will be so high that it will not feel awkward or like a blind date at all. Run your messages right and you may even feel like you have already been dating for a long period of time.
How often should you text?
Don’t overdo it. Remember, you don’t know each other yet, so you don’t want to come across as creepy or stalkerish. A random text here or there will get the job done.
