    Guys: how do you feel about girls texting you first? is it a bit too 'full on'/creepy/thirsty? or is it actually alright and something you wish they did more? turn on/off?

    Girls: how do you feel about texting guys first? why do you/don't you do it?

    EXTRA Q: How would you feel about a stranger starting a conversation with you online?

    Came up in a discussion i had today and was pretty interested in hearing other peoples opinions about it

    tbh if i don't much care about a guy then i'll be fine texting them first
    but if i do then i probably won't or i will and then get super stressed about it

    I'M SO BACKWARDS I KNOW

    Realistically, I'd often feel as if the guy is really busy or will just be like 'wtf i spoke to this chick yesterday :indiff:' so I end up not texting or I just speak to someone else

    depends on the guy though

    To me, who texts first does not matter in the slightest. There's no reason for a girl to not text first in my mind.

    Nobody's ever texted me in that way tho (cri) so maybe I'm missing something?

    Personally if a girl text me first I would think she's thirsty, it also depends a lot on what they are saying, and I'd say a stranger texting you on social media is almost normal nowadays

    Perhaps because you're retired? :indiff:

    Texting first is great, I encourage it. Girls now will literally wait days for you to message them then get angry because you didn't text

    Random girl messaging me first? Would find that a bit thirsty but would definitely go along for the guaranteed sex at the end :yy:

    I do text first, but generally only when I don't really care about the guy (ie I'm not romantically interested in him). If I do like him, I'll text first every so often but not frequently XD

    The worst thing is when he doesn't reply or takes like 3 hours to reply. Makes you realise you probably shouldn't have texted first :lol:

    The first time a girl texted me first, I thought it was a prank from my friends.
