TEXTING DEALBREAKERS

be better, dudes.
  1. you can't spell
    your phone has spellcheck--this shouldn't be a thing!
  2. you pluralize with apostrophes
    lose my number forever
  3. your response rate is terrible
    i don't care that you're "just hanging out" a week later.
  4. you use way too many ellipses
    are...you...trying...to...make..everything...sound...creepy?
  5. "LOL"
    why god why
  6. My forty-five-year-old brother types "u" instead of "you" and I hate it.

  7. Writing 'thx' instead of 'thanks'.
    And every equivalent. It literally takes the same amount of time.

  8. Too much texting just to text. Text me when you have something to say.

  9. Not peppering texts with exclamation points here and there. Makes me feel like I'm texting a passive aggressive drone.

  10. Using ;)
    Skeevs me out every time

  11. Stickers instead of words.
    It's hard enough to read between the lines of a text and now I have to decipher your stickers? Stickers should not be used, except ironically, by men over the age of 17.

  12. overuse of emojis
