Messaging your Partner? Never do these 5 Things

Social media and messaging apps are now essential tools to maintain relationships. Unlike before, couples are no longer relying on dates or calls to connect with their partners. They’ll just need their device and then start messaging.

But along with this convenience is the proper etiquette when messaging your SO (Significant Other). Being a relationship with someone doesn’t mean you can just blatant be rude with that person. There’s still an ounce of responsibility on every aspect of the relationship, and that includes when sending a message.

1. Don’t use too much emojis
Those heart and kiss emojis are undeniably cute. Sending those won’t take a toll on your relationship. Now when does this become a problem? Well if every message you sent to this person has symbols in it, chances are he/she is annoyed with it already.

Also, don’t reply with full emojis. Imagine putting up a well-worded message only to get 5 kissing and heart emojis in return. Nothing shouts “I’m no longer interested in talking to you” than the abomination of random emojis. Have the decency to tell your partner that you’re gonna be doing something, or you simply need to take a nap.
