The game when you are dating
We are exhausted from waiting a fortnight to know if you want to "grab a coffee." We are sick of watching those three little dots undulate across the bottom of the screen only to stop... There are too many rules now for how to "correctly" text a crush, so I say "F*#k it." Throw the rules out the window, burn them to the ground!Here are some of my main texting pet peeves, and why you should dump any poor soul who tries them on you.(Warning: if you do not follow normal texting etiquette, your crush might realize that you like them — HEAVEN FORBID! If the texting drags on for too long, just assume that the person isn’t interested in dating.
Most people are tired of hearing the same old lines. Too often, after hours or days of waiting, when the phone finally announces that a message has actually been received, it is a paltry offering along the lines of “Sup” or “How’s it going? But turning texting into a competition of "who cares less" will destroy whatever spark or chemistry you had when you first met.For some reason people believe that communicating with this modern technology should follow outdated gender rules.Somehow people got it into there heads that the girl has to wait for the guy to text after a date, and the guy has to wait a day at least before doing that, and so on and so forth, and now I'm bored. You don’t have to pull somebody's pony tail, or trip them, or neg them to let them know that you think they are cute.Unfortunately, if I want to find love, I have to play the game no matter how reluctant I may be. If love is a game, then I guess it makes sense that your relationship is a team.It’s just you and your partner fighting for forever.
That part of the game actually sounds nice — that is, if I’m lucky enough to find a good partner. If I’m going to play this game, then I can’t play dumb.
