7 Text Messages You Should Never Send To Your Man If You Want To Keep Him In Your Life
Texting should be a tool you use to bring each other closer together. But if you use it wrong, you risk losing a happy and healthy relationship with him. And if you feel like you’re not as good as a texter, don’t worry, that’s what this article is for. Here are some examples of text messages you should never send your man if you want to keep him in your life.
1. Nags and complaints.
Not only when texting, but be sure to keep nagging and complaining to a minimum. In general, men really hate you when they do. Try to be a problem solver rather than someone who just passively complains about all the bad things that are going on. Be your partner. Work together as you try to jump the hurdles in your relationship. You don’t want to be too annoying and boring without talking about what you can do to remedy your situation.
2. Insults and criticism.
There should always be room for criticism in a relationship – but it should always be done with sensitivity and love. You can’t be criticizing and insulting him just to make him feel bad That won’t make him want to be with you. And you can’t be criticizing him especially through text. You risk being misinterpreted. Always try a very personal approach when trying to constructively criticize your man. Otherwise, he may misinterpret you.
3. Excuses and apologies.
Apologies are great – but don’t take the easy way out by just sending him a text message. When you mess up in a relationship, it is essential that you swallow your pride and admit your mistakes. Go to him and apologize; assure him that you know what you did was wrong and that you will learn from it. And above all, do it in person. Something as sensitive as an apology has to be done in person. Sending it via a text message removes its meaning.
4. Interrogations and accusations.
Don’t be so quick to jump to conclusions with your man. Don’t interrogate him about his whereabouts the night before via text message. Don’t accuse him of cheating on you with another girl via text. In general, hold off on all accusatory remarks. These are serious issues that need to be dealt with in person – and in a very intensive manner.
5. Huge relationship bombshells.
Don’t break up with him over the phone. Don’t ask him to move in with you via text message. You don’t expect him to propose to you via text message, do you? Offer him the same respect. If there is a serious issue surrounding your relationship, you need to be able to talk about these things in person. There are some conversations that simply cannot be had in a virtual space.
6. Serious matters.
Related to the previous item on this list, even some of the more serious aspects of life that don’t necessarily concern your relationship need to be discussed in person. If you find out that you’re sick, that you’re pregnant, that you’re getting a promotion, that you’ve been fired; whatever. These are things you should reserve for face-to-face conversations instead.
7. Secrets and private information.
And lastly, don’t share intimate and private details via your texts. You can’t rely too much on technology these days. You never know who will end up with any information you share through your phone.
