Rules Every Woman Who Texts Should Live By

Texting a man isn’t about playing games, but it is important to think like a man when you text one. Men’s minds work differently than women’s. Once you understand this, you can make better choices when you text a man. The following are four texting rules that every woman should live by.

1. Don’t text him after 11 p.m.

If you’ve just started texting with a man, you should live by the no-texting-after-11 p.m. rule. If a man is texting you after 11 p.m., he’s probably not looking for an innocent conversation. He might start by asking how your day was, but gradually move into more intimate territory. If he wants to talk to you, he can text you earlier in the evening. Don’t give a man the impression that you’re OK with him waiting until he’s gotten into bed to contact you. If you do, he will not attempt to correct this behavior.

2. Don’t jump into sexting

No matter how quickly you think you have connected with a man, don’t jump into sexting with him too soon. If you rush into sexting, it’s easy to stop getting to know each other. If a man is truly interested in you, he isn’t going to pressure you into doing things you aren’t ready for. It’s perfectly acceptable to take things slow. Avoid sending intimate and nude photos until much later in the relationship. You want to make sure you can trust the man you’re talking to before you do this. Always crop your face out of photos for your personal safety if you do decide to send nudes.

3. Text him first sometimes
