Receiving a text when your date gets home to say he had a great time will help you fall asleep with a smile on your face.
Hearing the chime on your phone with a simple, "Sweet dreams" is an almost guarantee that you'll be dreaming about him.
It's enough to make you lose sleep at night, grab a pint of ice cream or dial ten girlfriends to ask them what to do. It's just a text or a way to ping someone to stay in touch, not a relationship measuring stick on whether he's into you or not.
Most people are so attached to their cell phones that they sleep with them at night or would put them in the shower with them if they were waterproof.
Don't play texting games and punish him by not replying to his texts when he sends them.
No one wants to be with someone who is playing too hard to get.
Show that you appreciate it when he takes the time to send you a text.
One key rule when it comes to dating is to create more opportunities to meet more potential people.
And that means breaking out of your comfort zone and making yourself open and available to meet new guys and gals and have new experiences.
So whether you sign up for a different dating app, ask to be fixed up and/or join a singles walking group, you’re taking strides toward making a real effort to meet others.
Allow your relationship to progress at its own pace. Men think about how they feel when they are around you and miss you when you're apart. If he's texting you sporadically, but not putting a date on the calendar or changing plans last minute, he just might be setting you up as a back-up girl or might have had a bump on the road with his steady sweetie. Let him know you'd like to be friends, but don't allow yourself to get invested in a relationship where you're just the backup girl. If he still doesn't up the ante, find someone else who can't wait to see your text or emoticon on his phone.
When he realizes you're a catch and doesn't want anyone stealing his girl, he'll amp it up. Read: I Saw His Text Messages: Is He Cheating or Is It Over?
