Who Knew There’s an Art to Sending and Receiving Text Messages?

InStyle wants to help you with your text messaging skills because like everything in this world, there is an art to doing it! And they care about you, unlike your parents, who didn’t write this article to help you out!

Be Creative: Don’t text, “hey.” They say it sounds like you sent it to 20 other people and you were just waiting to see who responded first.

Text something specific from your last conversation.

Unlock your phone, open your messaging app, stick your phone down your pants, and run around for 7 minutes then see who got your special messages!

Keep It Light: pretty self-explanatory. No one wants a Debbie Downer.

via GIPHY

Don’t use vowels, ever!

Text During Normal Hours: This is for those of you who like to text late night, “wyd.” Start a group text between a lot of people that don’t really know each other then start posting a lot of gifs with no context.

Send lots of pics of your toothbrush, so people know you have good hygiene.

via GIPHY

When To Give Up: They say take a cue from baseball-3 strikes and you’re out!

via GIPHY

Text Once A Day: You don’t want them thinking you are a stalker or have no life, do you?

via GIPHY

If it is someone you are dating then they recommend “bookend” the day. A text at the start and end of the day.

via GIPHY

Leave them on read whenever you can!

via GIPHY

Do these things and you’ll truly be loved
