Be a Better “Flirtexter”: How to Decode Cryptic Guy Texts

Cosmopolitan Magazine, December 2011, page 68

Flipping through the latest issue of Cosmo, I was thrilled to come across this graphic decoding confusing texts guys send.  There are times  I just stare at my phone going “Ummm…WTF?” For example, A guy I’m text-dating (yeah, it’s a thing… Ok, maybe I just made that up. But we haven’t met, we don’t talk on the phone, we text. Hence: text-dating) really likes to just send me smiley faces. The only proper response to that is another smiley face right? Winky face? Smiley face and winky face together? See, it gets tough! It’s a good thing there’s help.

This advice in the December issue of Cosmpolitan comes to us  courtesy of Debra Goldstein and Olivia Baniuszewicz, authors of the book Flirtexting: How to Text Your Way to His Heart.

My favorite is their suggestion on how to respond to an  LOL when you aren’t trying to be funny. You can pretty much just text back gibberish– awesome!
