I have realized that with all the advances in technology one can now flirt through text messages, no I’m not talking about sexting, which by definition of the Urban Dictionary is “the act of text messaging someone in the hopes of having a sexual encounter with them later; initially casual, transitioning into highly suggestive and even sexually explicit.” Wow, can you imagine setting up some blind date via sext message? I mean geez what is this world coming to. I have been the victim of sext messages while being single and trying to get back into the dating scene, the majority of them came from people who I exchanged a few messages from online and then later gave my cell number to, needless to say most have been removed from my cell and some even were blocked, none of them ever had a chance of meeting me in person anywhere, anytime. Hey we live and learn, right?!
Okay back on track of my discussion about flirting via text messages …
I have found based on talking with other people and reading online articles from various places that many have turned to text messages as a quick way to let the love of your life know you are thinking about them during a busy work day or maybe even before the drive home. Just a simple “I miss you” or “I love you” via text message certainly makes this chick smile, so why wouldn’t it make others smile? Coming from a person of divorce who is now dating her ex husband, I know how hard it is to date a person or even be married to a person who is not so outspoken about their thoughts or feelings. My ex husband barely spoke a single flirtatious thing to me the four years we were together. That was one of our melting points. I love flirting and telling someone how you feel about them as well as showing them in unique little ways.
It’s so awesome that you no longer have to pick up the phone to quickly tell someone you love them or are thinking about them just to hurry off of the phone because you are on a short break at work. Now you can text message that special person and heck if you are even the owner of a cell phone with a camera and picture messaging service you may be able to send them a picture of you as a way to say hello.
Although texting is impersonal and should not take over the flirting completely, I am a firm believer that texting to flirt with your loved one during times away is a great new option to help further your bond and emotional connection with that special person in your life. If you are going to use text messages for flirting purposes, please remember to also flirt in person because nothing beats an in person flirting session … it could lead to good things later on that night, if you get what I’m saying!
