The days of poetic love letters are long gone and these days love-struck singles must compose witty, engaging messages that are short enough and easy to read. But according to a men’s interest website, for single males, writing the perfect text to a woman can be a puzzling and frustrating task. In a recent survey, a majority of participants agreed it created more of an issue than approaching a woman in the first place and even knowing what to say after that awkward first kiss. PR Web recently reported that TSB Magazine, a website providing dating advice for men, presented readers a list of traditionally confusing aspects of dating.
Of all the most obvious potential pitfalls, when to text and what to write took top place as the most hazardous areas when it came to dating. Thanks to modern technology, flirting via text between dates now creates yet more opportunity through which potential partners can hope to impress each other. But a poorly composed message, or a misunderstood punctuation mark can sabotage even the most innocent affairs and according to TSB readers, the decision of what to write when can be a confusing game. Even too many messages can be a deal breaker when it comes to keeping a girl interested, according to TSB Magazine founder Bobbi Rio, who has made quite a business of positioning himself as an expert on the subject.
Of the candidates who took part in the survey, 32 per cent voted texting as their number one issue while 22 per cent admitted that knowing how to rescue an awkward conversation with an attractive woman was a significant hurdle. Following closely behind, 18 per cent of men complained that it’s often hard to know when and how to ‘lean in’ for the uncomfortable first kiss and negotiate the cringe-inducing conversation that precedes and follows the moment. Surprisingly, most men showed no issue with the notion of sidling up to a lady and initiating conversation and only 12 per cent confessed that summoning up the courage to do so presented a challenge.
