From the right amount of kisses to sexy selfies and TIU (texting under the influence), texting girls is an absolute minefield that can easily go very wrong, very quickly.
Here are a few dos and don'ts we gleaned from speaking to a load of ladies more knowledgeable about love than us...
DO send random funny pictures
DON’T send cock shots
DO re-read your texts before you send them
DON’T rely on spell check
DO text to set up a first date
DON’T text to break up with someone.
DO take the piss out of abbreviations
DON’T use too many abbreviations
DO respond within an hour
DON’T text repeatedly with no reply
DON’T text under the influence
DO invite them out before you're too drunk
DO recognise the friend-zone
DON’T be too full-on straight away
DON’T send vague text messages about meeting up
DO grow a pair and set an actual date
And DON’T text your ex
