Few people would deny that texting plays a significant role in our lives when it comes to communication. But, it can also be distracting and even annoying if not done properly. While texting is hard as it is when you're straight, it can get a bit more complicated if you're a bisexual. Keeping that in mind, the following are some texting tips for people who are bi.
◆Get Her Permission First
Firstly, it is important to ask if it will be okay to text her. This is important because many people don't have plans of sending (or receiving) a huge amount of texts during the day. You won't want to run her phone bill through the roof now would you? And besides, there are some people who just don't like sending text messages.
◆Keep it to the Point
While most texts can go up to 160 characters, it wouldn't hurt to keep things short. Also, if you have something more to say, just call her or send her an email.
◆Keep it Simple
Once you've got her number you will need to send a message to see how she responds. Start off simple and innocent by just sending her a message so that she knows you're interested. There's no need to flirt at this point, just try to use the way she responds to gauge what you should do next. Being flirtatious up front could make you seem pushy, which will make her look for the exit, so don't haste.
◆A Little Discretion Doesn't Hurt
It is extremely important to not get sexual over your text messages, especially if you know that she's either at work or at her parents since receiving texts that are sexual in nature will be inappropriate for her. So, you will need to set some boundaries at the start of your relationship and respect hers. Also, a good tip to keep in mind here is to never say anything in your texts to her that you wouldn't say to her in person.
◆Timing is Everything
So, you're a night owl, that doesn't mean that she is one too. Just because you stay up late at night doesn't mean that she should do the same. Don't send text message to her at a time when you wouldn't be calling her, especially at late hours of the night because if her cell phone has been left on (and it probably is) you will only disturb her.
Just because you are interested in her does not mean you should start to ignore your friends. While you might really be in to her, try not to have long conversations with her while you're hanging out with your friends. Be polite about it and let her know that you are happy to hear from her, but that you are busy at the moment and will call her later.
Another quick tip to roll off with is, while you might have the fastest fingers in the west when it comes to sending out text messages, she probably does not share your skills so remember to give her enough time to respond instead of sending her a barrage of texts first.
