Re: When is it okay to double text and is it that big of a deal?
Depends on where the relationship is at.
Early in the relationship, while your still building comfort, you should NEVER double text. This goes double if you are asking this question right now. As you get more comfortable, you can bend rules a bit, but right now, if you're early in the relationship, don't double text. If she doesn't respond, then you should layoff for a day or two and try again.
If you're in the later stages of the relationship (i.e., sexed her), then you can double text occasionally, as the context calls for it. However, you should still never give more than 2/3 what she gives you. This means that you should only send 2 texts for every 3 texts she sends you.
This is a big picture idea. It doesn't mean you always wait for three texts to send two. Instead, it's just a ratio to guide yourself.
