How to send the perfect text


Hoping to win a fair lady's heart? Well, listen up. Maybe in the olden days, before cell phones, you had to actually have a sense of humour, or clean up nicely -- not any more. According to The Daily Mail, a new survey by British directory inquiry service 118 118 has discovered that 90% of women prefer text messages to phone calls when first getting to know a potential date.

So knowing good text is an essential skill to improve your love life. Here's what you really need to know, says the team behind the survey:

A witty style is essential, but being crude is a huge turn off, as are emoticons to anyone you're trying to impress :( On the other hand, you have to show some emotion, or your messages will appear cold.

Oh, and make sure you spell it all out in full: painfully abbreviated words? Never attractive. Let's face it, if you can't make the effort at the start of a relationship, when will you?
