After several e-mail exchanges on an Internet
website or even after meeting during a drunken
night out in a club or bar, text flirting is often
the next step made by couples in the UK via mobile
phones. Once a rapport has been made, (by some
unspoken new rule of dating), sending a text is
often the first thing we do. No initial awkward
telephone conversations anymore!
Texting can be fun and several weeks may pass by
without a spoken word being exchanged between the
text couple. Nowadays it is almost the standard
way of communicating with everyone and especially
love interests, in fact most people would not
consider phoning when they can send a text.
It is important to remember that text words are
often very different from written words. When
embarking on a text exchange, knowing what the
abbreviations mean is vital as it is a whole new
Texting at the start of a relationship can be fun
with exchanges lasting several days and even
weeks. One of the reasons for this must be the
fact that when we text someone we know they are
thinking of us every time a text is received and
sent. Whereas a phone call may last only 20
minutes and then be forgotten, a text conversation
can last for a week or even more.
Text flirting is growing in popularity; giggles
from men and women on receiving a text can be
heard all over the world. No one else can hear
your exchanges and this encourages open and frank
chat between texters.
Text conversations are often more flirty and
risqué than when people meet in the flesh, which
can lead to interesting first dates between people
meeting via small ads and the internet.
Though on meeting the text couple sometimes feel
unsure of each other and how to act, texting can
lead to a solid base for a good relationship as
the couple know each other on a deeper level
before meeting which can lead to a first date
minus awkwardness experienced in days before
In fact sometimes couples can skip the first date
altogether as they discover they are not
compatible via texting before even meeting and say
goodbye without even speaking. Perhaps if they had
met they would realise that they were made for
each other and some good relationships have never
had a chance because of the joy of texting!
Another way of using texting is to feel the water
after an argument, instead of a tentative call, a
text is sent and a reply hoped for to clear the
way for a reunion!
Text flirting continues throughout a relationship
and of course the downside is that if a
relationship comes to an end sometimes a Dear
John text is used rather than holding a
While this can be frowned upon in some societies
and with older people, in our modern world it is a
quick and convenient way of dumping someone
without having a messy break up conversation.
Receiving a Dear John text may seem harsh but it
is better than to say goodbye after several months
of dating, having one more good date and never
hearing from the other person again. The UK text
flirt phenomenon is most definitely going to be
here for some time to come!!
