This is about a website that I certainly won’t be using, but then again, I’m not a chick.
I found out about HeTexted.com when I was reading some tech blogs. The site is pretty hilarious really.
Tons of girls go onto the site and write down some situation they are having with a guy and write in the EXACT text conversations they are having. This isn’t fake. This is real life.
So be careful guys! Some girl can post your texts online and get opinions from thousands of other girls on what your motives are. Ie. Are you interested in her “romantically” or not.
The site won’t let you put people’s actual names on there, but it will let you put the REAL messages. I’m 100% sure that some guys are going to get in trouble with this.
I guess the basic idea is that many girls have a hard time knowing whether or not some guy likes them. I’m not sure if guys have this problem or not. I think some do but it’s not as common.
In my experience, if a girl doesn’t like a guy, she just won’t respond to any text messages, or will just say some really short answer and will never ask a question. This is a big generalization, but that is based on my experience and from the stories of my guy friends.
I went on the site because I wanted to make a podcast about it. Add and I just made our latest one today about this. You can check it out HERE if you are a VIP member. I think you’ll like it!
Anyway, I hope you guys check out www.HeTexted.com and let me know what you think.
Do you think this would be useful for girls to understand guys?
Do you think it’s making private things too public?
Do you like the idea of this type of website?
What do you think about what I said above? Do you think in a “dating context” girls are more direct than guys with texting, in general of course? What are your “texting habits” when you like a guy or a girl? Do you let them know? Do you “hint” at it? Do you make them wait and “play the game”?
I’d love to hear your opinions. I don’t want to say too much more because we talk A LOT about it on the podcast.
It would be awesome to hear your thoughts after you check it out. You might even learn some slang English on there. If you have any questions of slang from real native texts, please ask in the comments section below.
By the way, thanks for all the comments on the last blog post. That was awesome! I hope you keep it up!
