When did men start asking women out with a text message?
I got married in 2004 and divorced in 2007. In 2004, men definitely didn’t do this.
Text Case #1:
Subject: A guy who asked me out at a bar. We had a brief text exchange the next morning.
My Text: Thanks for your number. Had fun playing pool!
His Text: And just think how much fun it would have been had you won a game!
My Text: Yeah, really! What’s your e-mail?
No response. My friend and I concluded it must have been my asking for his e-mail. “That’s weird,” she said. Clearly I don’t know text rules. Clearly.
Five days later he sends me another one.
His Text: Any plans tonight?
My Text: Nope, just staying in.
His Text: Yeah, probably the same thing for me.
I haven’t responded.
