this is why you're single

To the boy obsessively texting my friend morning, noon and night—no one finds it charming that every time her phone chimes it’s you "checking in." I can’t think of one person I would want to text that frequently, and it surely isn’t the guy I randomly met in a bar just a few weeks ago.

“Good morning dear!”
“How is your day going?”
“What’s up?”
“Are you surviving Monday?”
“Is it the weekend yet?”

If these messages are each met with one-word responses, chances are…. She’s not interested.

Take a minute before you hit send. Has she ever started the conversation? Does she ask you questions about your day? Does she actually care about what you’re saying?

If the answer to any of the above are no then, she probably does not want to talk to you every minute of every day. Sorry, but it’s true.

Each time your name pops up on her phone, your grave in her cemetery where bad dates go to die is just getting deeper and deeper. Didn’t your mother ever tell you to play hard to get? Because mine certainly did!

Next time, don’t act so eager. You’re sweet. You treat her well. She has no reason not to like you. But give her a chance to realize that! All these text messages are only making her realize that you have way too much time on your hands and not enough friends to entertain you.
