Plus, text is cheap

Texting can be fun for a while but it’s also easy to completely miss the fact that someone is being a bit fake. “I really pay attention to when messages are sent. So many of my clients get these guys that send the ‘Good morning’ or ‘Hi beautiful’ texts that in my book don’t mean anything. It’s a way to keep top of mind but there is not any substance in it. But it makes them feel they bonded with someone,” Hoffman says. “Half the time I hear the guy was checking on three girls. He’s just hedging his bets on which one is going to respond. Also if you only get the ‘U up?’ text at night, that means they’ve been through their entire day before they thought about connecting with you.”
