Girls sometimes ask screening questions over text. How you handle these is the difference between vanish or date.
In the text conversation that followed his brief initial meet, she hit him with a few screening questions:
- On his age
- Whether he was a student or worked
- Why he picked her to approach
In between these, she asked other questions. It was friendly enough. But these types of text message screens can be deceptively dangerous.
There’s no subcommunication you can use to make an answer playful over text. No body language, voice tone, or facial expressions to flesh out your response. Things you’d say in-person that would work great in that medium (“I’m a traveling vagabond”) may completely disqualify you over text. Yet just the same, if you are boring or flat, you may lose the girl too.
The way to deal with text screens is straightforward enough. Yet the challenge is, can you resist the urge to be too clever... without completely following her lead?
