Perfect texting frustrating for men in dating

Typing the perfect text to a woman they want to woo can be a puzzling and infuriating task for men, according to a new survey. In a recent survey conducted by TSB Magazine, a majority of participants agreed that writing a message containing ‘just-the-thing’ was more of an issue than approaching a woman in the first place, the Daily Mail reported.

TSB Magazine, a website that provides sex and dating advice for men, presented readers a list of traditionally confusing aspects of dating. Out of all the ‘most obvious’ potential pitfalls, when to text and what to write took the top slot as the most ‘hazardous’ areas when it came to dating.

Out of all the candidates who took part in the survey, 32% voted texting as their number one issue. 22% admitted that knowing how to rescue an awkward conversation with an attractive woman was a significant obstacle. 18% of men complained that is often hard to know when and how to ‘lean in’ for the uncomfortable first kiss and negotiate the awkward conversation that precedes the moment. Surprisingly, most men showed no issue with the notion of initiating conversation.

Only 12% confessed that summoning up the courage to walk up to the lady presented a challenge.

The revolutionary technology of ‘texting’ has catapulted flirting to another level. Text between dates now creates more opportunity through which potential ‘love-birds’ can hope to impress each other.

But a poorly composed message or a misunderstood punctuation mark can sabotage even the most innocent affairs. Therefore, the biggest dilemma faced here is making the decision of what to write and when, found the survey.

TSB Magazine founder Bobbi Rio claims that even too many messages can be a deal breaker when it comes to keeping a girl interested.
