7. Keep the Ball in Your Court

beauty,sense,screenshot,model,photo shoot,

When it comes to things to say and not to say when texting boys, you always want the ball in your court.

If a guy asks you to hang out, keep it short.

Go with a "sure" or "cool" and see if he responds with plans.

If he doesn't, tell him you're pretty busy and need to check your schedule.

Don't make him feel like a priority.

A way to keep the ball in your court is by making sure he texts you last.

That way if you ever feel like texting him first, which shouldn't be too often, you can because he was the last one.

Make the last text you send him something he has to respond to, that way you're in the clear on leaving the conversation.

I feel like some of these are sending him signs that you're trying to avoid him. In my opinion, these are good reasons, but if you like a guy, go for it. Don't worry about trying to be mysterious or something
I find it's better to have less words too, right your message and take out the words you can, attention focused on the main words, guys don't have a lot of enthusiasm to read long texts
What if it's not just another boy? What if it's your fiancΓ©e or husband?
