20. Take Your Time

hair,person,hairstyle,brown hair,long hair,

Another text etiquette tip you might want to practice is to take your time replying.

This kind of goes along the same lines as not answering the phone on the first ring when he calls, you don't want to appear overly eager.2

Take your time replying so you not only keep him guessing but it also gives you time to craft the perfect flirty response.

Hmm, this also sounds like your not going to be with a man who can handle a serious adult relationship. If he can't handle hearing about your period, something totally natural and something you can't help, then he shouldn't be in a relationship with a woman. And the part where men only think about "sex, food, and sports"...if I were a man I'd be a little offended that my gender was being generalized as something so primal and unthinking. It'd be like saying women only think about "shoes, makeup, and boys." Mehh, not my favorite article.

I agree with the sex appeal part but playing too hard to get can keep a great guy wondering and feeling insecure. You want the guy to feel comfortable and secure with his choice (you)

You are awesome.. thanks

Some these I use but most importantly be your self no guys (unless there jerks or players) like fake girls if your not all about being sexy then your not. It's simple when your with somebody just remember u need trust, don't lie, don't be fake. one day they will find out then if the guy doesn't like it u will have drama. Just my opinion
