Remind yourself that whatever you drunk text is likely going to annoy, or even worse, anger the recipient, and you will end up looking a fool. This is especially important for women who are dating (and texting with) men.
We all get drunk from time to time, but as a general rule of thumb, when you're partying, give your texting finger a vacation.2.) When you get a text from the person you're seeing that rubs you the wrong way, put the phone down. These may be legitimate reactions to the way the text was phrased or the content of the text itself. Men are pretty simple creatures when it comes to their phones.
Then of course, there's the obvious: Texting rather than speaking your true feelings is the ultimate passive-aggressive move.5.) Do not define a relationship over text. With words, sexting can be very exciting (hey, I'm a writer).
I've done it; my friends have done it -- and the worst is when we don't remember we've done it until we get a sobering response the next morning.
When you're "full of spirits," you might let your guard down.
Passive-aggressive behavior via text is just as unacceptable a form of communication as it is in real life.
Of course it's easier to be passive-aggressive when you're not face-to-face with the person, but once you hit send, you can't take it back.
Although relationships are of the flesh, in our day and age of digital reality and instant communication, if you are dating, you will be texting.And although your relationship is built around the face-to-face time you spend with your partner and texting is merely a way to communicate -- like the Pony Express was back in the day -- there are do's and dont's to texting the person you're seeing that I've found helpful.
