    Default When is it okay to double text and is it that big of a deal?

    So I've been reading threads on this forum about guys have issues sending out fun & witty text messages, how long often to respond, why she's not responding back, etc. I understand that most of us that know about PUA and game are aware that our texts should always be giving value and demonstrate a busy lifestyle (non-neediness). But for texting, is sending out 2 or 3 texts back to back without her responding really that big of a deal? Personally, I'm the type of guy that usually match a girls text with my own text message which shows I'm not overly-invested. On the contrary, what if multiple-texting a girl could show that you are: different from other guys, more grounded and present (say what is on your mind), not waiting for a response back, etc.

    What do you guys think about this?

    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.

    I never worry about whether I "double text" or not, because I rarely do it.
    If you do it all the time then yeah, stop.

    If you're bantering back & forth & in rapid fire mode, it's not an issue at all.

    If you texted her with plans & then have to update her cause you're running late then yes, it's cool.

    Just use common sense. Don't text back JUST because she didn't respond yet. Don't text back crap like the following examples:

    "Are you gonna reply?"
    "Did you get my last text?"
    "Soooo, what do you think?"
    "Are you still there?"
    "What are you doing now?"

    Those (and anything along those lines) are pretty much always a bad idea.

    If you're gonna double text, do it sparingly. And have an actual purpose for doing so...

    If it's the next day & you haven't heard back, then yes, you can always send the first text. (even if you sent the LAST one too) Just start with a new, fresh topic, rather than trying to pick up where you left off.
