), the whole gamut of text behaviors that should be banned entirely.
Texting can help us "weed" out a potential date solely based on how they are able to communicate.
But, because I like to be as unbiased as possible (which isn't saying much), I'll consider this question from both sides.
First off, when I say "texting before a first date," we're referring to the texting that usually occurs once we received the ultimate form of validation: a match on Tinder or Bumble (or whatever app you may be using.) We follow up the match with a pretty standard statement sounding something like this: "hey, let's make this easier to talk and take our conversation to texting! Now comes the question that is looming in the back of all of our minds: how much should we be texting before we meet, or should we really be texting at all?
You Only Texted A group of experienced panel dating experts reported that a majority of online daters now skip the phone call before the first date and set it all up over text. With odds like that, all decorum goes out the window. You Caught a Catfish Some online daters want to break out of their shell, but just don't have the balls.
They may post a fake photo or lie about their stats, and then realize once the face-to-face date looms near, that they just can't pull off the lie -- or the truth, so they bail out before they're exposed for who they really are. The Online Market Mentality Once you've purchased an item from Amazon.com, how often do you write a review for it, keeping a conversation about a purchase you just made continuous? Once an item (person) is chosen or passed over, a dater rarely keeps their shopping cart at the forefront of their mind while still perusing the aisles. It's Not Them, It's You Sometimes people get too overzealous when it comes to online dating and, instead of letting things progress naturally, they will ramble off everything that happens in their life via email or text.
In conclusion: limit the texting to setting the first date's plan, and then confirming the date the day-of.
Any sense of humor that once made me LOL in text (sorry, had to be in theme with the acronym) even lacked a giggle out of kindness (or pity.) We can't always assume that what transpires through text is going to feel the same way when we're face-to-face.
Of course, these are semi-reasonable things to believe.
Texting can also serve as a way to determine whether or not we have some sort of intellectual connection with someone.
I have a friend whose date talked in mostly abbreviations that we all used back when we were on AIM Instant Messenger.
Shortened words, "U" in place of the word "you" (in all honesty, is it that much more strenuous to text out two extra letters?
