Maintaining your privacy
Here’s a major issue online daters can face once moving to text: one person can decide they no longer want to communicate and the other doesn’t respect that. You’ve likely had a guy who wouldn’t stop texting you long after you told him you were no longer interested. It feels invasive and sometimes disturbing. Hoffman is a spokesperson for TextNow, an app she regularly recommends to clients. It allows users to set up a second phone number so you don’t have to give out your real number to text with someone you met online. Research has found that an astounding number of women have dealt with someone continuing to contact them after stating they wanted the communication to be done. TextNow can help prevent that issue.
