To do this, we called upon our good friend Mollie, from Mollie In Seattle to help us understand the rules (there’s 10 of them) for text messaging while dating. What about a winky face or is a smiley face better?

So maybe the next time he texts, let him know that you turn off your cellphone at work, and he can best reach you on your regular phone.

Or maybe you tell him in a flirty way that the way to your heart is through your voice – and that, if he’s lucky, he might be able to catch you on your cell at before you go out tonight.

Essentially, guys across America are saying, “Hey, babe.

You’re not important enough to get five minutes of phone time.

Whatever you call them, flirty text messages are the reality for most people dating in 2017.

Chances are you’ve asked yourself or someone else one of these questions right?

Everyone says communication is the key to building and maintaining positive relationships.

What you don’t want to do is sound like a stick-in-the-mud, my-way-or-the-highway woman.

But you can refuse to play his game and still make him feel attractive, which will keep him chasing you through whatever medium you choose. Now now, don’t hate on men – I’m a single guy who is dating, and women I meet text me all the time. It drove me crazy for some of the reasons you talked about – a 5 minute phone call is so much nicer, more respectful, more intimate. It’s how Gen-Y communicates (I’m older than Gen-Y.) I finally decided to stop resisting it, and it doesn’t bother me anymore.

Please accept this weak form of communication and allow me to keep on sleeping with you.”And as long as you let them do it, they will continue to do it.
