Most Helpful Guy
Personally I like it when a girl will start a conversation... It makes me feel like she actually wants to interact with me. If she'll never text first then it ends up making me feel like she doesn't really like me and I'm somehow pressuring her to interact with me.
Though, it is a two way street. You have to give if you take.
Just saying "hi" and checking in with someone is loads better than forcing them to put in all the work.
