Rule # 10 – Save the Cheese for the Crackers Yes, girls are sweet, we like chocolate and soft things but that doesn’t mean that when you send a picture of a rainbow with a caption that reads “You’re the … Continue reading →
Don’t bother sending things like: FWD messages that have to do with passing it on.
You aren’t making a girl feel special when you send her a message that says she will die in 8 days if she doesn’t forward it to 10 people. Continue reading →
Rule # 8 – Breaking Up Is Hard To Do
But, breaking up via text messaging is pretty pathetic. It simply shows that you are NOT ready for a real relationship, that you are extremely immature and lack social skills, but also indicates that you have absolutely no spine, sense of compassion, or respect.
