Texting someone you like is a good move and a bad move. The good move is that you’re engaging with them. And that’s a good thing! The bad move is that, well, you don’t know each other!

Expert advice: Ph.d., and Psychologist Maggie Mulqueen says, “As a psychotherapist, I see this phenomenon almost daily, along with the unintended consequences it causes. Patients often read me text messages during therapy sessions in hopes that I can decipher them, since without facial cues and tone of voice, it can be challenging to understand the intention of the message.”

My Experience Texting a Crush…

Here’s what is really important… Get to know each other! If the two of you don’t know who you are yet, then it’s going to be really hard to advance the relationship.

Your only goal should be to align on values and what you are both looking for in a relationship. And that’s the advice that I have based on my own experiences.

If I would have asked a few questions up front, I might have saved myself a lot of time in the long-run. I would have learned that the girl I was texting really had no interest in a long-term relationship. Or vice versa, at times.

These questions help to expose the intention behind someone wanting a healthy relationship. Use them! And move on if it’s not what you’re looking for.
