But in reality, men are always judging women in the getting-to-know-you stage. If you tell a guy your entire life story on the first date, he’s going to think you are insecure, self-centered, or testing him to see if he can handle the baggage in your life.
If you’re addicted to your cell phone and can’t help texting your friends with every development throughout the day, you must hold back with the man you are dating and observe the three-text rule.
That means if you must text him at all, go ahead and send him one message.
Drop hints that you won’t be sleeping with him that night, but don’t be too obvious about it.
You can say things like, “I’m having so much fun getting to know you.
A good general rule is don’t text ’til there’s sex.
At least that way there’s some intimacy established, and both people should feel less insecure if the other isn’t as responsive or expressive as they would like.
If you don’t reach him, leave a voice mail with your question and, again, do mention the unacknowledged text.
If you are in a situation where you cannot talk on the phone but you must communicate with him, go ahead and send another text — just don’t mention the first one.
They may not feel that guys you are talking to online are a direct threat to your connection, but they may feel that you are keeping your options open, playing the field, or trying to make them jealous.
