I believe by not texting the girl you are interested in too much will build your attraction for her and you because she will see that you have your own time and life to worry about rather then text this girl all day. she will buy that and slowly start to become attracted to you, now this theory isn't always true but that's my theory, also, I feel if the guy puts too many emotion "faces" after every text you send back, you may come off as too "feminine" or a "nice guy"
what do you guys think?

I don't think that's a very accurate theory.. I have a very straightforward approach to texting: If I want to talk to someone, I talk to them. If I don't want to talk to them, I won't. If a guy is not texting, I assume it is because he doesn't want to talk to me. It is more likely to make me irritated with him than attracted to him, and I will not waste my time trying to talk to someone who doesn't show an interest.
As far as the use of smileys, they help to convey emotion in an otherwise impersonal form of communication. Text messages are easily misinterpreted and using smileys can help to eliminate some of the confusion. I know tons of people, myself included, who have gotten into unnecessary arguments because someone misread a text. I doubt any girl is going to think you are too feminine or too nice because you use smileys.1
