New guy and texting

Like Tree21Likes

Do people really say "mineswell" instead of "might as well?" I haven't seen that one! I do see "walla!" a lot, though. I usually see "beckon call" as a typo/confused word, rather than "becking call."

Democracy is not a spectator sport.

You know why pandas are endangered? Cause pandas ain't got no game.

Jesus loves you, but I'm his favorite.
Sorry it seems like it won't work out, WB. New love interests can be so fun!

Whoa, that seems a bit harsh! I think she's just afraid of being rude, which I think is completely understandable. Some people really take it to heart when people ignore their texts. Plus, she seems to like him, so she probably doesn't want to send him the wrong message of "leave me alone."

What I was going to suggest has already been suggested: wait hours between texts, and let him know that you're not a constant-texting kind of person. If that doesn't work, then... I don't know.

But if someone is texting you and you're texting back, you have demonstrated that it is acceptable behavior. Even in texting women think it's "polite" to be whoever they think the other person wants them to be instead of who they want to be, and honestly, it's just BS! Take ownership of your life, people! You are NOT a slave to your phone or the wishes of men! I think the OP learned her lesson from what she posted, so I do mean it as a general "you" not at the OP.

The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!

Not my problem and we are probably not meant to be friends if they are not compatible with me.

Actually current guy did complain about my short and blunt responses after we were getting semi serious. I fixed it, not a big deal, I was being lazy. It woulda progressed anyways.
