Dating sms etiquette
You don't have to look very far to uncover some seriously cringeworthy first date etiquette advice.
Just sending a message will let her know you're somewhat interested. She may be waiting to respond to you after she gets off work, when she has time to think about what she wants to say or after she checks in with her best friend to help her remember which person she gave her number to that night you are. Don't send her thousands of texts if she doesn't respond. It sounds stalkerish or desperate, neither of which you want to be if you're trying to impress someone.
Otherwise, the conversation remains superficial and boring, and you may miss that possible connection.
You’ve heard rules like, “Don’t talk about religion and politics,” right? I dated a guy who brought up politics while we were driving to the restaurant.
The basic rule of computer etiquette, or "netiquette," mirrors the golden rule that echoes through much of society.
This rule has been expressed in many different ways, from the slightly obscure -- "remember the human" -- to the biblical -- "do unto others as you would have them do unto you," and boils down to an extremely simple concept: be nice. Anything and everything you do online affects someone else, whether directly or indirectly -- it is up to you what that effect is.
