    He asked me out on a date but then had to pull out last minute for a legitimate reason. We aren't free on the same day for a while. I don't want it to just fade to nothing though. I last replied to his text today but it was a very closed reply. Can I send him a text tomorrow asking a question if he hasn't replied to my message?

    I've never done this before guys usually chase me I don't know what the protocal is

    I think it's fine to double text when you have a question. But I wouldn't message him that, maybe say that you want to replan something. Just try not to look clingy

    Yh ik it's bs but I actually follow these rules when texting girls. You just look clingy if you don't follow it.

    Not really, it depends what you say which makes it 'clingy'.

    Nah if you reply too fast you just seem eager
    Girls which I've used the rule on Ive had longer convos with, better replies and so on.
    Following the rules makes you look less eager, more desirable and let's them know u have a life of your own

    I know how it goes, I've dated before

    And, I just find texting rules to be a bit immature, if I like someone, their texting won't seem clingy to me really.

    Text if you want to know if he's available to meet up.

    Texting protocols are silly, that's some secondary school rubbish.

    Second texts from the girl's side are usually banned by most major network providers.

    People over think texts too much, I don't think anybody's going to ever go "Oh my god she double texted me I can't date her good christ that's abhorrent"
