You do not take your eyes off your mobile phone, because twenty minutes ago you sent a message to your friend and still have not received an answer. The sweet new acquaintance with whom you communicate does not respond to your flirty smiley for more than an hour. Mom hasn’t called you back a week since you wrote her about your cousin’s wedding. In situations like this, there are several ways to break an impatient expectation and get an answer. Start with step number one below so that people can answer you in any circumstances.

3. Do not compose novels

Short messaging services are designed for exactly this and for nothing else. If it takes you more than 30 seconds to type a message, then maybe it makes sense to write a normal letter or call?

5. You have not been answered right now? It's alright, take it easy

If you sent an important message and did not receive an instant reply, then do not be nervous. Moreover, you should not bombard your interlocutor with new and new SMS with duplicate content. Since they do not answer you, it means that a person is busy. Or doesn’t want to communicate with you at all. In both the first and second cases, repeated messages will not correct the situation, but will only cause irritation.

6. Do not use sarcasm, irony and other emotions

Even experienced writers sometimes fail to correctly convey all the nuances of their thoughts. Especially in a compressed format of a short text message. You should not try to attach a second and third meaning to your message if you want to be correctly understood.

11. Do not write anything that could not be said in person

There is nothing worse than shifting to the shoulders of the messaging service those tasks that you are afraid or do not want to perform directly. You should not part, sort things out, gossip or speak rude. In general, do not write anything that could not be repeated later in person.

13. Do not use abbreviations and slang.

Rather, not even that. Never use all of these “lol, lu, schA, DR, thanks, plz ...” in the event that you are absolutely not sure that the recipient will adequately perceive this. And it’s better to forget this teenage slang in general, because each time your teacher of Russian language and literature hiccups somewhere.

15. Do not correspond when you chat with another person

There is no worse situation when someone receives a message during a lively conversation and immediately begins to respond to it. At the same time, your interlocutors feel like fools, and their irritation on this occasion is justified. Therefore, postpone writing the answer until the end of the meeting, unless, of course, you want to offend your company.

16. Do not text while driving or while driving.

When traveling through city streets — whether on foot or by car — loss of attention and control over the environment can lead to very bad consequences. And while walking can all be limited to a bump on the forehead, then an attempt to get the message on the wheel can be the last not only for you, but also for other people who were not lucky enough to get in your way.

10. Know your worth

You are wonderful! Do not waste your life on a person who does not need it. Do not allow yourself to sit at home and wait for him to finally show up. Look for someone who sees you as a real princess!

Messages are a good way to learn something, share information. In addition, SMS messages can be an indicator of how a person treats you. Use this tool wisely and do not spend too much time waiting for a response from a guy who is not worth it. My 10 tips will help you “get” the guy to reply to messages. There is no magic in them, just they will make you a self-confident woman who can do without a man. This quality guys value most!
