The rules dating manual
As the gurus who invented call screening, curtailing any contact that isn't face-to-face as quickly as possible, and good old-fashioned ignoring, this strikes me as particularly apt.
The New Rules: The dating dos and don'ts for the digital generation, (£9.99, Piatkus) published this month, offers their signature sagacious take on the grey area where sex and cyberspace intersect.
” Granted, some of them have merit: “Rule #8: Don’t answer texts or anything else after midnight.” Fair enough. You shouldn't be texting smiley faces anyway, you're an adult with dignity.” Elaborating on texting etiquette, Fein and Schneider say, “We support using abbreviations like TTYL or LOL, as these make you seem too busy to write full words and long sentences.” “Rule #4: Don’t ask guys out by text, Facebook, Gchat, or any other way.” From the book: “Asking them out destroys the chase and rarely works out ...
