Because texting is only enabled by the person who writes back to the text. You’re letting him know that it’s a poor way to reach you.
And thus Elle was left with a grade A dating anecdote, and an understandable repulsion towards Disney films, pizza and Ben and Jerry's ice-cream... Fair thee well Matt, may you and your phone get lost in the garbage, where you belong.
No matter what anyone else says about it not being that big of a deal, it is.
It was, for all intents and purposes, a booty call, and not a subtle one at that. You see, Elle was in her pyjamas and did not want to meet a strange man who messages women at 5am in the morning after a “good time with the boys”. Finally their text exchange ended with one final and highly problematic message:"Don't be so selfish, think about others and their needs.
She didn’t respond but that night at 8pm, she got another text.“I know it’s late but how are you doing? Alas, he did not get the hint.“Hmmm pyjamas sounds sexy,” he continued.*vomits*“What about I bring over some snacks and we hang out in wanted to get laid and thus, his hormones got the better of him and he lost the ability to communicate. Like my own and the need to share a bed with you and a pizza and Ben and Jerry's."And no Matt, we simply will not.
You’re not important enough to get five minutes of phone time.
Please accept this weak form of communication and allow me to keep on sleeping with you.”And as long as you let them do it, they will continue to do it.
And what can be more flattering than conveying, electronically, the idea that you DON’T want to talk to the woman you’re courting?
Essentially, guys across America are saying, “Hey, babe.
It shows that you care about them in an intimate way.
