Someone stole my idea...

Specifically, Debra Goldstein and Olivia Baniuszewicz stole my idea. Why? They just published a book called Flirtexting: How to Text Your Way to His Heart.

I really can't believe that Debra and Olivia have ever dated MORE guys that like texting than I have, so it stands to reason that this book should have been written by me. (Then again, I suppose that's what this blog is.)

Most recent texter? Val. We haven't verbally talked to since our date on Sunday (which was sort of OK with me because I was crazy busy all week anyhow), but he has texted and sent me Facebook messages throughout the week. Aaaahh. You know what I call that?

Digital Dating.

(Note to Debra and Olivia -- I am hereby copyrighting the Digital Dating phrase. Unless you want to pay me an assload to buy it as the title of your next book.)

Anyhow, apparently the premise of the Flirtexting book is this (taken from Amazon): You see, rather than feel disappointed that her guy isn't making an effort to talk F2F (face to face), the flirtexting aficionado works it.

So according to this book, I'm supposed to be glad a guy's not calling, right? No thanks.

But it would make my life a heck of a lot easier.
Thanks, Nance, for alerting me to this book!

That book is HILARIOUS! I have to disagree with them though... if he's not calling occasionally, it's a problem. Maybe I'm old fashioned like that.

OOOO, another book for me to read!

I had a thing going with a guy who only texted. All conversations were via texting. Dates were set up via texting. Post date conversations were via texting.

It got old, fast. There is something about his name lighting up on your cell phone as it rings that makes a girl smile.

And you want to know how it ended? Via texting.
