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

via


 

DON’T send vague text messages about meeting up
