5 Text Messages Never To Send Immediately After A First Date
Going on a first date is usually a fun event. Worrying about picking the perfect outfit to wear and the butterflies in your stomach only add to the drama. First dates tend to make many people nervous for the very same reasons that they generate excitement. You simply never know what you’re going to get. Unless you have a bad habit of picking horrible companions, you can expect to have a decent time on your date.
If all went well, the tricky part comes afterward. In the past, there was a customary wait period before calling or texting someone after a date. Things have changed in the digital age. Calling is out of the question because you’ll seem clingy, but texting is totally acceptable and often appreciated. Now, it’s not so much about when to reach out. If you decide to text that night, what you say is far more important. Aside from a few simple rules regarding what not to do everything else is fair game.
1. Avoid saying, “Goodnight”
If you’re going to make the effort to reach out, a one-word response probably could have been left out, especially if you already said goodnight at the end of the date.
2. “I’m not interested
Sometimes we go on dates only to discover that we aren’t as interested in that person as we thought. If this happens, please refrain from sending a random ass text notifying them how uninterested you are. Yes, it’s good to be upfront and honest, but you don’t have to do it immediately. It was only a first date and more than likely any connection will fizzle out if you don’t nurture it. If the other person is persistent on being romantic, then you have to consider a more direct approach.
3. Don’t ask, “When can I see you again?”
Give that person a chance to soak in how much they either enjoyed spending time with you or determine if the date was so bad that you’ll never get a second date.
4. Never say, “I really like you.”
If the two of you haven’t had enough contact to develop certain feelings about one another prior to the first date, you run the risk of appearing desperate. Never show your hand too soon. However, it is fine to let that person know that you really enjoyed his or her company. Just hope the feeling was mutual.
5. Don’t say anything sexual
Depending on how your date went, there’s a small chance that your date would be receptive to that kind of message. However, it’s more likely that If your date was looking to get sexual it wouldn’t be through text messages. Save that kind of conversation for a later date.http://the-conscious-mind.com/5-text-messages-never-to-send-immediately-after-a-first-date/http://the-conscious-mind.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/walking-texting-600x399.jpghttp://the-conscious-mind.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/walking-texting-150x150.jpgRelationshipsfirst date,texting
