Most Helpful Girl
I think it's kind of annoyingly stereotypical when a girl waits for a guy to text first. I mean, the tradition of a guy asking a girl out or initiating further is more understandable to me, but come on. You're sending a digitally combined series of words to another person, and often they turn out to be of the opposite sex. If a guy wants to text me first then I'll let him, but waiting there hopelessly like Rapunzel for her prince is not my style (If I were Rapunzel, for the record, I would've hung my hair from a hook and swung down ninja-style).
Also, I like to text first for a couple reasons; One is because you get to remind the guy that you're still there without waiting anxiously for him to be all "hey! It's been months since I thought of ____, Imma go text her!" Another is because leaving cute little messages for a guy to see when he's done with something you knew he'd be doing is CUTE AS FUCK. But also, if you start the conversation, you get the first words and can steer the conversation however you want. Food for thought :)0
