Say it out loud, minus voice inflections, and decide if it comes across as intended.” (You don't want to end up like one of these Online Dating Disasters That'll Make You Glad You're Single.)“Since more of the human connection is lost, I encourage singles to simply use texting less frequently than they might be inclined to,” says Steinberg.
