stop being the nice guy dating-76

Guys, for the most part, want a girl to put them in their place, to challenge them, and, of course, love them.

They just don't know this, so they try to be the boss of you, complete with their own misunderstandings of how a relationship should work. and I'm not trying to change your life in one single way... He texts you, you reply and text him back, maybe you have long text conversations that really go nowhere. You want to read this now:- Stop Texting, they have your phone number, make them use it, and call you back promptly.

Or maybe a couple of months of cell phone texting being the main form of communication, through whatever mobile types of phone you use."Texts" are just hints to a whole story. Emotionless words typed from a guy that just can't be bothered to dial you up and actually talk to you on your voice. But don't answer the text for a minimum 24 minutes.

And keep your reply short to this: Say "Call me back from your phone, no texts right now please."Now he has to talk with you, verbally.

When talking with someone on the phone, your ability to decipher what they mean, the emotion in their words, is curtailed.

Not so much information comes your way but you instinctively can decode their emotions through the tone of their voice.

Happy, sad, angry, worried, it's all revealed through the vocal cords, the breaks in the flow of words, etc.

When you're texting someone, you lose the majority of the ways you can identify with what the person is going through at the moment they are sending you that text message.

When you receive the text message, well, a bit of fantasy invades your logic center and you immediately, based on past experience with the person and (a big AND) you add the emotions you assume are hidden behind the words.

Is he happy, sad, angry, shy, pensive, worried, excited, adventurous?

The text doesn't tell you, so you automatically add the emotions, or lack of emotions, to the text you received.
