Take Your Texting to the Next Level

It’s always so exciting when you meet a new guy and exchange numbers. He’ll usually text you the same night, just saying it was good to have met you, and you’re in the cab, feeling quite euphoric. You text back, he responds the next morning, and so on and so forth. All week at work, you get a little grin when your phone goes off with another flirty text from him.

But by the next weekend, you might still be grounded in Text City, when you really want to take off to Dateopolis. Here’s how to get him to take it to the next level:

– First, do some research. (Um, stalking.) Can you friend him on Facebook? Google him. Try to eliminate the possibility that he’s a skeeze, a player, or in a relationship. That would be a bummer, but it’s just better you know up front.

– Drop hints about calling. If you’re ever discussing plans or even just saying, “Talk to you later,” say, “Call me later.” If he starts a new line of texting with “Hey, what’s up?” just say, “Hey driving, want to call me?” (If you live in a big city, “Hey walking, want to call me?” is quite acceptable as well.)

– Start spacing your texts out a little more. You don’t have to respond immediately. You can be “busy.” He may realize that he needs to use other means of communication to reach you.

– Ask him what he’s up to for the weekend. It’s appropriate to send this text on Thursday night. Keep it casual. “Anything exciting going on this weekend?” Hopefully he’ll take that as a way to start making plans.

If he has a busy weekend planned, but you still think it’s worth it to let him know you’re interested, make a little joke. “Sounds like fun! Well I hope one meeting at X bar isn’t the only time we ever hang out.” Throw in an “LOL” or smiley face so you seem less intense about it.

There’s a very, very good chance he will send you a text from the bar one or both nights. You can respond (you can also definitely wait until morning), but you shouldn’t be overly excited – and you definitely shouldn’t run to meet him, or, worse, run over to his place. He’s testing you. Don’t drop everything and rush to see him, or you’ll never be able to get he respect you deserve. You’ll also send a very clear, “I’m OK with being a last resort” message.

From that point on, you, for your part, are finished. He knows you’re interested. If he doesn’t at least make tentative plans for early next week, start moving on. It’s annoying when you’re all excited about a guy’s text and it doesn’t go anywhere, but it happens. But the faster you can call BS, the faster you’ll be back en route to finding the next best thing.

In The Crux Of Lost Dreams

In The Crux Of Lost Dreams

Ruminating in the visions of what could be,I mellowed to the burden of the expectations whose existence no one could see.Lost in a land that convoluted its being into the beauty of forever,Wearied by the nonchalance of my circumstance, I buried myself in the tireless strive of my endeavours

Metaphors of irony struck their symphony in the tale I forged in,Enchanting the ones I meet with a smile, submerging and silencing a storm within,To make hay while the sun shines, they tried to tame my soul,Alas, the fire within me burned their hands, as they mercilessly tried to reach their goal.

A Reminder To Breathe

A Reminder To Breathe

Often we feel imposters in our lives, not embracing the joy of the now. The power of being present in the moment we forge in belies in the acceptance of what we are. To be or not to be the ones we are deemed to be, to not know what our life would be is often the stem of our angst and doubt. Uncertainty is the only truth about life, as much planning and having a definite vision about what your existence should reflect, we need to understand that no matter what path we hail for we to be the one we are destined to forge. Life never turns out to be how we envisioned it to be, but it always leads to something that forges to be in our best interests.

The journey we stride upon pivots around the focal point of believing in ourselves. We do not need to

On The Ugliness Of Healing

Darkness in its entirety hounds us in the silence of the looms,Ensnaring the voice of doubt in our mind to leave no room.Sometimes the light we seek sublimes under the shades of grey,And we wish to hide in a land, where our hearts are not left astrayed.

Betrayal creeps in its hinds mighty and galore,Tormenting us with no bounds, leaving us gasping for a sip of amour.Pain hails in its fangs deep,Slicing and rendering the soul in every vow it is deemed to keep.

The tale of survival often seems too good to be true,No one knows the concealed wounds that hid under its sinew

What’s The Difference Between A Vacation In A Honeymoon?

Whats The Difference Between A Vacation In A Honeymoon

For me personally, I see a massive difference between a vacation and a honeymoon. You take a vacation once or twice a year for some time to enjoy yourself and rest and recharge from life responsibilities for a while.

You’re able to get away with your family or your friends or maybe take a solo vacation, whatever works for you. I have taken some fantastic vacations with my family growing up. We spent a week in ocean city Maryland and it was awesome. We still bring up memories of those trips years later. I have also been on trips with one of my best friends, to cape cod and a birthday trip to Philly. These were amazing vacations, filled with memories that I will forever remember and that will last a lifetime.
