Sure, some girls prefer Facebook, and there’s never any sure fire way of knowing what she likes best, but don’t lay the options on the table and ask her to choose because you’ll sound needy and insecure. When we look at how long it takes men to first get in touch and when women want men to get in touch, the results are surprisingly similar: Because 89% of women said they prefer to be contacted within 48 hours and only 6% think the 3 day rule is cool, I’m sure you can guess what we’re going to say next… This video course by Richard La Ruina will teach you rejection proof ways to approach and seduce girls.
Consider this your guide to relationship texting etiquette.
But please, don't follow these rules for face-to-face conversation.

This is especially true in the realm of texting and dating, since the recipient can’t see you as you say *type* those words. Have you ever had someone send you the same text multiple times back-to-back? The more texts you send at a time, the more desperate and needier you come across.
Avoid lengthy messages that give you more opportunities to be misunderstood. Though you might feel that you were ignored or left hanging without a response, fight the urge to resend the message and just get your mind off of it.
As a general rule, keep your phone away from you when you’re drinking. As with actual person-to-person conversations, try to keep your thumbs away from your phone when you’re upset.
You might say something that will only make the situation worse, and even if you don’t mean any harm, there’s always that chance for your text messages to be misconstrued.
(I've never gotten past texting; I actually have no idea what real dating is like.) Trust me on this.
