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.2

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!

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

Don't Pretend to Be Something You're Not


I've done all of this with the guy I really like so I guest I'm screwed, I wish I could turn the table and get my mojo back and do it right and keep the ball in my court

That's a relief, Elanra. That would have been creepy and pedophilic. :P
I don't think I've ever said to a baby "hey sexy"....
Never lie... It's not cool and no guy wants someone that is going to lie to them

@Amy Hagan, I'm sure your questions are not stupid. He sounds like kind of a jerk if he's just going to just out and out tell you something like that. You are worth more than that, and you need to tell him to stop being such a dick if he wants this thing to work. It's called "friends with benefits" not "dickheads with benefits." He still has to be nice and respect you, even though you aren't strictly an item.

Hi Amy! I would definitely say that friends with benefits relationships are harder. They can work, but they are harder, especially when feelings get involved. Do you think you could be just friends with benefits with him?
