What Guys Hate About Your Texts
I have not had the best luck recently with texting men. Feel like you're all thumbs when messaging your guy? Maybe it's not you it's him...
Your Tango surveyed a bunch of guys around the country and found there are a few things they really hate about texting with women – no matter where the relationship is.
- Emojis Are Out. As one guy complained, "It's hard enough trying to interpret what a girl is saying, let alone when she's using pigs and cacti and pink high heels in a message to me. Like, what the [heck] does that mean?"
- Stop Playing 20 Questions. As one frustrated guy put it, "This isn’t an interrogation. It's texting. I'm not sure what I’m doing later – or what I'm doing on Sunday morning for brunch. Or if I plan on taking any summer trips. I'll know when I get there."
- OMG, Dump the LOL, OK? Sometimes, it's worth using complete sentences, says one guy. He says, "The following words: whatevs, totes, appro-pro, lmfao, etc. I just can’t handle it. Spell it out. Chances are you have an iPhone and once you start typing the word it will finish it for you."
- Quit While You're Ahead. Don't keep sending texts into a void. One helpful hint? "If I'm not answering the first text, take that as a hint. There's nothing so important that you need to keep messaging me without waiting for an answer."
