Shelby's 'FITT' Texting Tips

By: Date with 8 Email

I'm assuming you have all seen my video 'Texting 101' (WATCH HERE) and you are aware of my texting acronym FITT.

Well, here's a FITT cheat sheet to insure dating success.

Frequency: How frequent do you text? Avoid being the double or triple texter... it's comes off super creepy! If they don't answer jam out to Cee-loo's Forget You and move on.

Intensity: What's your intensity level? A good rule of thumb is text how you would talk. If you're happy/angry/whatever and you know it... show it! For example, "K." will always mean I'm pissed and I hate you.

Time: Next, when are trying to text? After 9, is a booty call and a middle of the night text screams booty call! If you're getting a sweet morning message it probably means there's a spark. Bottom line, The time of day you text is IMPORTANT!

Type: After you type do you proof read? Once you send it, you can't it back. It's gone. They have it. Proof read y'all.
