A study found that guys don’t like it when they text more than the girl they like, yet they don’t like it when a girl texts too much as well. It’s strange, but it seems like they just want a balance within the relationship dynamic.
They know it’s necessary, but they hardly see it as a social crutch. The study found that ladies, on the other hand, find joy in texting frequently and hate it when guys don’t text as much. So, how can this work if you both want different things?
1. USING IMPROPER GRAMMAR
Plx Ope send me money. Awayu doing 2nite. I lurv u.. The list goes on. I don’t know about other guys buy i know when a guy uses too much of these bad English i automatically get turned off
2. NOT TEXTING AS MUCH AS WE DO
We see this as a blow to our ego and we take it as a sign that you’re not interested. It affects ourr self-esteem and gives us a clearer picture of how much you really like them.
3. STARTING DEAD AND BORING CHATS
Not exactly scary, but it’s a red flag for guys, because it means that there’s a chance that this is the best type of conversation you can offer. Stop talking about the weather, and start discussing things that you are passionate about. Don’t waste time texting about trivial things like what you ate, unless you’re really passionate about it.
4. ANSWERING WITH VAGUE ANSWERS
When you keep sending strange emojis instead of a “yes” or “no” to a perfectly simple question, this guy might decide to text someone else who knows how to speak the human language. Guys just want a clear-cut answer to their questions and sentiments. If they say you’re pretty, tell them thank you. If they ask you out, tell them when you’re free. Don’t overcomplicate the simplicity of texting.
5. NOT ANSWERING SIMPLE COMPLIMENTS
Another thing that guys hate is when you deflect their compliments or affectionate messages. They’re reaching out to you, which means that they’re okay with being vulnerable – even if it’s through texting.
When you ignore messages like those, they get bummed out and can even see it as a sign of insecurity on your end.
6. CHATTING WITH THEM WHEN THEY ARE AT WORK
Guys hate it when girls text them while they’re at work. It comes out as too much of a distraction, and the only time it’s okay is if he’s not doing anything important, or if your message is urgent in nature. It seems as though most men think of work as a higher priority than texting. This is not because women aren’t as invested in their careers, but because most women are more patient.
7. GIVING ONE WORDED ANSWERS
If you thought guys were the only people guilty of this, think again. The numbers wouldn’t lie, and if guys say they hate it, it must mean that there are women who actually do it. Most of the time, this happens when women are mad, because they think it’s the right way to get their point across. Ladies, take heed of this advice, because passive-aggressive jabs like these only make things worse.
