You just scored the digits of your second hottest prospect on OKCupid and you're ready to start scheduling actual dates.But don't start tapping away at that touchscreen just yet.At most, it is a reliable source of advice for women who want to improve their chances with the opposite sex. In light of what I've written about not initiating contact, or cutting men off, I can see how a girl might think she should give only very short responses - or even ignore his texts sometimes, in order to see how hard he will persist to get a response.
I imagine that you are here because something didn’t go your way.
You text him and he didn’t sms you back or his answer was very short.
Sure, he wouldn’t be spending any time if he wasn’t attracted to you, but if he’s solely texting, he doesn’t think of you as a potential partner. You know what you need to know: he isn’t a good, grownup man worth your time. A text ‘relationship’ is simply like being a player in a game.
Expecting him to move on to something more serious isn’t realistic. There are so many ways to know if a man is a serious guy who is interested in getting to know you. It’s a type of false connection that sets up incredibly unrealistic assumptions and expectations.
(I've never gotten past texting; I actually have no idea what real dating is like.) Trust me on this.
