So I did some research on these forums and changed my text game. I use to be a horrible texter, but now after 3 days of research I tried it out on a girl, and it seems like I'm better. No more needy/stupid texts. The most important thing is I felt like I was leading the conversation, and felt like a boss saying whatever the hell I wanted to say. Here's the convo, let me know what you think (good or bad):
Background: I haven't talked to this girl really since I graduated college (maybe around 8 months). We use to talk a little, but were never romantically involved in any way. I texted her for just practice purposes.
Me: I just saw a squirrel gathering some nuts and it reminded me of you
Her: Lol wow -_-
Me: Yeah it's true. Probably because of your nutty personality (She didn't respond here so I sent another text 2 hours later)
Me: What are you up to missy?
Her: You're ridiculous
Her: I'm visiting my great grandma
Me: Aww what a nice great grand child. I'm just eating some delicious non-vegan healthy food I made and chillin (she's vegan)
Her: Well I hope you choke on your non vegan food
Me: Well aren't you just adorable. You're angry because we haven't talked in awhile. I'm flattered lol
Her: What's up Lonnie? (my name)
Me: Nm, I've been pretty busy lately holding down 2 jobs and school. Life is jelly though. What's up with you sour butt?
Her: Where do you work? & my life sucks.
Me: By day, I'm a onene at a school for kids with autism, and a donation attendant at Goodwill. By night, I stand for justice. Your life is sour? Explain.
Her: Hey I'm a one to one too. Except I'm a one to one to a demon
Her: That's why my life sucks
Her: Dealing with a demon daily is hard
Me: That's awesome how ur a one to one too! Somehow the name sour butt actually applies to you lol. Is the almighty Alannah letting a toddler take her down?
Her: Not it doesn't, and yes, I get beat up daily. You should see all the bruises I have
Me: Nobody lays their hands on my future wife! I'm guessing he has autism ..
Her: I'm nobody's future wife, and I think he is autistic, but I'm sure he has some other syndrome as well
Me: So I can't use terms like babe and sugar mama then.. This is going to be harder than I thought
Her: Oh god make it stop (as you can see she's the type that doesn't really express positive emotion. I know her though so I know the stuff that I was saying was making her smile. So I chose to make her qualify herself in the next text)
Me: You'd probably make a good wife, I could see things being very boring though. Plus vegan cooking. OMG the horror! Steak=win
Her: First of all IF I were a wife I'd be extremely fun. My vegan food is good hater. Steak=clogged arteries
Me: You are cute so that could make up for the cooking. I also am thinking about becoming a vegetarian. Tell you what, I'll sleep on it and let you know if I feel like getting married. Goodnight (I was getting tired and felt like ending the convo. I chose to take a dominate stance after it seemed like I was trying to please her throughout the whole series of text. I did this by making her qualify herself and then flipping it on her making it seem like she's not good enough to marry me. I know this was outrageous, and as a conservative girl, I knew she wouldn't respond after that (to which she didn't). She's right where I want her to be and I'll continue it tomorrow.)
My main point in posting this though was so people could have some more examples. There are not enough examples of full conversations floating around, so I want to get more out there. I'm good at picking up girls in person, but terrible at texting. This is my foray into the texting world so please leave feedback.
