15. Forget the 3-day Rule


UGH - I hate "texting rules".

There's no reason you have to wait three days after seeing someone before texting them.

If you want to talk, go ahead and type up a message!

It's alright to initiate conversation - just try using these guidelines to help you!2

Remember, don't bombard him with messages - keep it cool and casual.

Don't Pretend to Be Something You're Not

Hi Mel! I don't think the advice was necessarily childish, but it was definitely designed for someone a little younger. As far as making yourself available, sometimes it's fun to say you are doing something when you are actually at home -- it leaves him wondering. :)
This is awesome :))

I feel like this article is teaching a girl how to impress a guy temporarily rather than make the guy she's texting like her back. I tell my guy when I'm on my period, I don't lie at all--I don't find it to be necessary--you can totally make driving in traffic sound sexy ("stuck in traffic honking my horns! U can too if you'd like ;)"). Bottoms line, be yourself and he'll gush over you way more than if you pretend to be someone you're not.
Great article! Making notes in my little black book for sure
Really needed this!

While I agree with some of these, and have done some of them and they work (like playing hard to get), if you have to play games all the time with a guy it's time to move on.

I agree with marina it's not a bad thing to tell a guy you've got your period and that you aren't feeling good. But it definitely is to lie to him. Not all men think about sex all the time. If your always thinking about how to make him think your sexy your always being someone else and not yourself especially if that's not who you are. Have a convo with a guy about what you think he likes and if he doesn't answer right away it doesn't hurt to send him one ? He'll know that your still interested at talking to him. Vulnerability isn't a flaw some men like to be there when you need them however these tips are for catching a man though most men will like you better if you are yourself. These are not tips for keeping committed relationship
