I know how to fix a texting mistake.

I’ve gone on 3 dates with a man I really dig, but who is a shit texter.

Earlier today Troy and I were chatting about my dating life and I told him about this guy.  Troy wasn’t sure what a “shit texter” meant, so I hopped over to check our thread and typed back a reply regarding the frequency of texts.

Except I forgot to return to my thread with Troy.

It was on the Shit Texter’s thread.

My stomach dropped, my heart stopped, I clapped my hand over my mouth.  I might have yelled at the phone in a long, drawn out, “Nooooooooooooo!”

I hadn’t texted him since after our quick coffee date yesterday where we sat snuggled up together on a couch for about an hour before we both had to run.  He walked me to my car and we kissed sweetly; I wished we could have done more, but the clock was against us.  I really like this lughead.

An hour or two later I texted him a smiley face and note that he didn’t need to respond.  It’s an open, running joke that he sucks at texting.  He proudly owns it and this early in our dating I feel weird to demand any changes.

He replied with a laugh and a note that it was nice to see me that day.

I told him I’d had a nice time, too, and would like to see him when he returns from his 10-day vacation which starts today.

I hadn’t heard from him in 18 hours when I sent him that mistext.

Dating is difficult and strange; we try to become mind readers.  I’m done with trying to interpret people, so while his texting habits drive me fucking crazy I truly enjoy myself when we spend time together.  The odd thing is, he’s easier to hang out with than just about any other man I’ve met.  He’s on time, funny, affectionate, open.  He’s also sweetly nervous.

We also don’t “date.”  He doesn’t, I don’t, we don’t, but we kinda are.  I haven’t been as nervous to see anyone as I have been him and there’s something between us that draws me in.  I’m intrigued.  He can also eat pussy like a champ.

All this from a shit texter.

So how does one fix a faux pas such as revealing that you’re talking about his bad texting habits to someone else?

I did the only thing I could think of:  I sent boobs.


Hy text oops!

Within a minute or two he responded with “Well played.”

I texted back, “Thanks.”

Of course I didn’t hear anything else from him and now he’s on a plane to London.  It remains to be seen what the fall out from my texting seizure will be.  It also remains to be seen what the fall out will be from his horrendously bad texting habits.

  1. Hi Hy, a sexy revealing photo can go a long way towards overcoming that mistake. Heck if that doesn’t work maybe send a video. Hahaha. Love pose for your picture. You look great. Maybe next photo you will show us even more…. Have a great day and glad to hear you have found a nice guy who treats you well and makes you feel important.

  2. It takes some getting used to… I typically crave a lot of communication, quick exchanges and such. Now, well I’ve got used to waiting sometimes a day or two before I get a reply to an email.
    I realise that my fear is always that I said something wrong and that he decided he didn’t want to see me ever again, just didn’t feel like telling me. Happened to me as a teen, still paying the price for it.
    But I’ve slowly come to realise that it’s part of what I need right now. I need to be in a relationship where I don’t feel I have to commit, where things are going the way they are meant to and not the way I would like them to. Because the way I would like them to is also the way that never worked for me in the past. So maybe it’s time I learn to entertain myself and not wait on a man to do it for me :-)
    Oh well… Time will tell :-)
    Good luck with you!

  3. Hey Hy,
    First time poster, but I love your blog. I can dig the bad texting vibe.I recently started talking with a super sweet gorgeous girl who, while she’s not a terrible texter, doesn’t quite get sexting. I would lead in with, after we both were pretty riled up and horny, something like: “mmm I’m so turned on right now. I can barely walk, I’m so hard it hurts. does the thought of you in my arms make you wet? Cause it’s driving me crazy.”
    She responds with something like: “Im just as turned on as you are.” And she tries to get into it, but it seems she can’t. Any tips on how I can get her to get more spicy via phone/text
    Also, she is 6 years younger which makes me nervous as I normally date only within 2 yrs +/-, but she’s everything I could ever imagine, everything I could ever want. I know you have experience dating younger people, any ideas on how to make it work?

    All the best in continuing your rocking dissolute life,


  4. wow! what an olive branch thrown!! hah
    1) that was his first time seeing your boobs?
    2) did you intend for him to see them soon anyway?
    3) can I be there when he comes back from vacation?
    you know he will have the boobs on his mind, and hopes to have them in his hands….
