Friday Fodder

Seriously, I think I've seen and heard it all with self help dating guides lately. These two chicks wrote a book about the best way to send and understand flirty text messages from men in a new book called Flirtexting - how to text your way into his heart.

I wish I could cut and paste parts of this hilarious interview together with some great bubblegum pop song. These women are probably rolling in dough because this book is so ridiculous so I'm sure it will sell thousands of copies.

From their funny interview on CNN, I picked out a few comments that they said in the interview with my responses as if I was actually interviewing them and could comment face to face.

"We created a formula to always getting the response we want and in our book we reveal the ways to flirtext."

OMG - you are so full of shit and you know it. Formula my ass!

"Hey I know a cute blond that will be at X bar and you should come check it out."

Seriously - you think having women talk about themselves in third person will work to get a guy to meet them out! Just invite him out already before he hits at the brunette sitting next to him at the bar he's actually at.

"We created a timeline for response times because a lot of guys can tell things about girls by their response time."

A timeline? Are you trying to scare him away already? What do you think he would do if he realized women had a printed timeline to follow! I hope they hide that timeline before they have that man in their apartment.

"What's the biggest mistake a girl can make with a guy? Responding with the first text that comes to mind."

Does it really matter in the end? If you want to jump his bones, just say that. If you think he is ugly, then don't respond. I doubt guys put that much thought into it unless you are texting him 345 times in one day. Then, only then, should you think about not responding to the first text that comes to mind.

So, ladies and gents, do you have texting rules like the ladies of this book suggest?

Sometimes, when I'm irritated with the SO I'll make him sweat and not return a text for a few hours - then he knows that I'm busy too.

Ok, yes, I ignore texts, but I sure as hell don't have a timeline for returning texts.

How did people date before texting? Seriously! I think every guy I have ever dated in the past three years is ALL ABOUT texting. Ugh.
