It’s wise to be careful about who – and what- you text…
Let’s face it, we’re in the digital age now and there’s no going back. Everyone has a smart phone, email, and all sorts of electronic gadgets that have changed the way we date and think about our relationships. You just have to get with the times. It’s really not that hard. Here is some food for thought.
A disaster situation
Recently I read about a man who sent a text to his friend talking about how “average” his date was and how lucky she was to be dating him. The only problem was…he sent it to his date, by accident. Clearly this wasn’t a good thing and he was immediately dumped.
We’ve all done it. Sent a text out to the wrong person. Hopefully your text didn’t have the kind of contents that made your date dump you. So what can you do if you accidently send your date a text meant for someone else?
Well, it depends.
If you sent her a text that was harmless, then you don’t have much to worry about. Just send her a follow-up text saying that you meant to send that to your buddy Joe and she’ll understand. “That game was awful – he should have blocked that shot” – these kinds of accidental texts don’t offend, but rather confuse. So just explain who you meant to send it to and what it was about. No harm done.
What if I was gossiping about her with someone
If you sent her a text that was harmful about her, then you’d better apologize. You may not be able to save yourself here. If you sent her a text, about her, that talks about her worst qualities and how lucky she is to be dating you…you’re likely to be given the boot.
The safest thing to do is to avoid discussing your date with anyone via text message. Send an email (much more difficult to change names), call your friend or meet them in person. Then you can talk about her without the risk of ruining your relationship with her. If you truly think that she isn’t that great, then maybe you need to end it. Don’t stay in a relationship if you don’t enjoy spending time with the girl.
