Tips to Know Before Sending Your Sweet Text

Today, everything is fast-paced, but when dropping a sticky sweet text, take a moment to make sure it's right. Before you dash off that adoring message to someone, there are a few things you'll want to consider.

  1. Try not to catch someone off-guard: If you're going to drop something big — like a first "I love you" — maybe wait to do that in person. Think of these messages as sweet little reminders of the great connection you two have when you're apart.
  2. Consider the time: There's kind of a general rule of not texting too early in the morning and not too late either. Of course, this depends on your schedule. Folks like their sleep! Getting a text in the middle of the night that wakes someone up might not give the warm and fuzzy feels you're hoping for.
  3. Double-check the recipient: Can you blame clumsy thumbs for sending a text to the wrong person? Absolutely, but the damage is already done. Always check one more time before pressing "Send" to avoid embarrassing situations.
  4. Wait on text speak: Go light on the abbreviations and symbols until you know your person is into that sort of thing. The last thing you want is a "Huh?" reaction to an emoji you thought was cute.
