He Texted is “The Ultimate Guide to Decoding Guys”, and while I don’t actually think there is an “Ultimate Guide” for guys since they are all so different – this at least somewhat points you in the right direction to understanding guys. Texting has become a big part of relationships lately – especially with online dating becoming more and more popular. You chat a little on the dating site and then it moves to texting – but how can you tell if he is in to you? Lisa and Carrie – the owners of HeTexted.com, a website that gives advice on texts from guys, have put together this book with the help of 3 “bros” who also put their input in on the topics. How to tell if he is in to you, how to tell if he’s losing interest in you, and when is the appropriate time to text the guy (and how many times). While I find some of this is common sense (don’t continuously text him if he is not responding – he’s either not interested or his phone is dead and you’re coming across as desperate) it was helpful in figuring out why some of my text relationships disappeared after a couple of days.
Overall I think that it had a lot of information to think about if you’re in the dating game and are going to be texting with someone you may be dating or may be trying to find out more about in order to date. I liked that it had the different thoughts from the 2 women who created the site as well as the 3 guys who all had a bit of a different approach to things. It was a quick and easy read and left me with a bit to think about the next time I am texting with a guy. (There’s also a lot of great information on Facebook and whether or not you should add the guy you are dating or talking to as well as if you should put him on restricted access to your account or not. Way too much going on with dating with all this technology!)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
You’re a busy, intelligent, modern woman. You stay on top of work e-mail. You “like” all the baby photos your sister posts on Facebook. You found your dream job through LinkedIn. But when your crush texts you “Sup?” every few days, yet never asks you out, what the hell does that mean?
These days, dating is more confusing than ever. Friending? Following? Liking? Poking? Linking? LOLing? WTF? In an era when FaceTime is no longer the same as face-toface, it’s no wonder you can’t tell if he’s into you or just really into his iPhone.
This hilarious and essential guide from the founders of HeTexted.com—with totally straightforward guy sight from the HeTexted Bros—will help you autocorrect your digital dating life, from decoding your Facebook friendships, to reading the intentions behind guys’ perplexing texts, to deciding when—if ever—you should text him first. It’s He’s Just Not That Into You for the digital age and What to Expect When You’re Expecting . . . a second date—all in one invaluable package!
