I am good at talking to people face to face. I have no problem striking up conversations with strangers, both men and women. But once I get their number or email, I always mess things up.
My question has 2 parts:
1. How do two people who are interested in each other text or email? How often? And when you were dating this great guy or gal, how did you two communicate in texts or emails (especially in the early stages)?
2. What shouldn't a guy say or act like when texting or emailing (in the early stages)?
Maybe this will help you think: sweet talking? Small talk? Flirting? Short and to the point? Compliments?

1. I would start out slow. Maybe text them in the afternoon with a simple "Hey", it gets them knowing that you were thinking about them. If they text back, great. Keep the convo going, but don't reply too fast. Wait a few minutes. Once you both get comfortable with talking, you'll be able to feel it out. Once you know for sure that they like you and you both are initiating conversation, sending a "goodmorning beautiful. hope you have a great day" is really sweet. I love when a guy does that.
2. In the early stages, it's best to not sound clingy or possessive. Be casual. Have fun. There is no rush! :)1
