Actually listen to what your date is saying: Carefully read and respond to every message you receive from your partner, and you’ll build a better connection.
Avoid being aggressive: If you haven’t gotten a response as fast as you’d like, be patient and refrain from sending off a nasty message.
Give your full attention: When dating using your cell phone, it’s easy to treat it as another task in multitasking, but it’s important to give your date your full attention.
Respect boundaries: If you’ve been messaging with a partner for a while, but they aren’t ready to talk on the phone or meet, don’t attempt to push them out of their comfort zone.
