YOU REREAD THEIR TEXTS A MILLION TIMES, PLOT HOW TO “ACCIDENTALLY” BUMP INTO THEM AT THE COFFEE SHOP (UM, WHERE THEY WORK), AND CHECK THEIR STORIES EVERY MOMENT FOR UPDATES. THAT ISN’T WEIRD…RIGHT? HERE’S HOW TO STAY BALANCED, EVEN WHEN YOU’RE HEAD OVER HEELS.
TEMPER THY TEXTS.
YOU CAN’T STOP THINKING ABOUT THEM, so you shoot a “what’s up?” text. Their response? “Not much.” Which is a pretty standard reply…but one that leaves you hanging?
You can steer clear of confusing text territory by sticking to messages that have a purpose. Ask them a specific question (something like “Hi! Going to Ana’s bonfire tonight?” or “Want to meet up at the trail tomorrow?”).
That way, you’ll end up with a plan—not just random chatter.
MINIMIZE THE MIND GAMES.
