1. "Lemme know when you're heading over there"
    A brilliant response to any proposed plan. Instead of committing you've demanded more information.
  2. "XO" or "'night"
    Signaling a clear end to the convo is a very powerful move.
  3. 😎
    Deploy meaningless emoji. Now your adversary must make a move while you have revealed nothing.
  4. Keep an arsenal of photos of fun-looking times
    They don't know that's not where you are.
  5. Typing something but not hitting send. (only works on iMessage)

  14. "I know you're watching the game, but when you get a second..."
    Acknowledging the excuse that exists to not text back and invalidating it.
