Would you mind if we developed our relationship over the phone and in person and hold off on texting? In addition, you’ve articulated what does work for you.
Dear Marriage Minded Mentor, I’ve gone out with a woman several times and it seems we are both interested.
We are dating long distance and my emotional connection seems to come and go.
In addition, I imagine you are probably spending more time thinking about your obligation to respond than daydreaming about her.
It would be better for both of you if you were the other way around. Let’s for a moment assume we agree that fewer texts and more personal attention is more beneficial for your potential relationship.
Aleeza is committed to creating marriages that endure the test of time, starting with her own: she is a dedicated wife and loving mother of five children.
Text messaging isn't necessarily a tool of Satan, but there can be quite a bit of misinterpretation and miscommunication if not used correctly!
Make the effort to first figure out your own boundaries and comfort levels in regard to texting.
Next, speak with your date about their preferences.
How are you going to communicate your need for less texting and more real time, without offending your date? You aren’t saying, “I want to text less.” You are saying, “I am enjoying getting to know you.
I want to give our relationship a good opportunity for growth.
