Is Your Digital Behavior Preventing You from Getting Laid?
Has it been a while since you last had some fun in between the sheets? If you can’t figure out what’s behind your dry spell, it may be time to examine your behavior online. So much of our communication today is done through computers and smart phones, and there are many ways that your digital attitude could be turning off the girls in your social circle. Below we’ve outlined some major tech no-no’s that you need to keep an eye on if you want to have some fun with lubricated condoms in the near future.
Take a look at your Facebook feed and see how many negative posts you can count. People use the online social network to complain about all sorts of things, from their relationship problems to the weather to what they had for lunch. Here’s a little secret – no one likes to read these posts. If you find yourself signing on to Facebook or Twitter to talk about something that’s making you feel down, try picking up a phone and calling a good friend instead. If you come off as a mopey and whiny guy online, odds are girls are going to assume you’re the same way in real life, and no one wants to date a Gloomy Gus.
Don’t kiss and post
Sometimes, when you have a good roll in the hay, all you want to do is shout it from the mountaintops. It can be fun to share the details of a hookup with a pal, but announcing your conquest online is a pretty creepy move. First of all, consider the fact that your friends and family might not want to know that you used flavored condoms last night. Secondly, think of how the girl you had sex with might feel if she finds out the intimacy she shared with you has gone public.
Put down the phone
Smartphones are addictive. When you feel that tingly buzz in your pocket, your immediate reaction is probably to reach in and pull it out to see who’s been texting or calling. There’s nothing wrong with being on top of your contacts, but you should never give your phone more attention than a girl you’re pursuing. If you’re on a date with a girl or even just flirting with someone at a bar, leave your phone out of sight. If you really can’t resist responding to a vibration, put it on silent and try to forget it’s there.
Know when to respond
On the flip side, ignoring a girl who is trying to get in touch with you is also a big no-no. If you’re interested in getting together with her again sometime in the future, you should be prompt with your text and phone call responses. If you aren’t interested in meeting the girl again, then be a man and let her know. Ignoring someone is never an appropriate way to end a relationship.
