Although it may seem a little ridiculous, I think maybe the most underrated thing in the year 2020 is the art of being a good texter. There’s nothing that I appreciate more than a response text of multiple hahaha’s rather than just a plain lol when I know I have said something funny. A one-liner and good joke can be completely ruined and cut short by a girl on the other end hitting you with a simple “lol.” In this day and age, there is just no excuse for someone who doesn’t bring much to the table in a texting format. I brought the beautiful hosts of The Home Team Podcast, Sophie Julia and Narod Michelle, to get a female standpoint on the art of texting.
The mind games that go on during a text dialogue is pretty remarkable. One word or phrase can be taken in a totally different direction than you intended it to be. There is a very fine line you have to walk when texting, especially when dealing with a girl you are into. I was able to ask Narod and Sophie the hard-hitting questions that we all want to know but are too afraid to ask. What better example than the “haha” game? Is it weird that I use multiple “hahahas” rather than just a simple “haha?” Do girls find it to be a bit of a deal-breaker if the guy isn’t contributing the same amount of energy into their texts that they are giving?
