Dangers of dating a coworker
Being catapulted to such heights of bliss by texts from this guy means there’s nowhere to go but down. The flip-side of texting titillation, waiting for a response that doesn’t always come immediately, can knock you right off cloud nine.The relationships that have the greatest chance of deepening and lasting are those that are more even-keeled and not characterized by such dramatic ups and downs. In real life, when you’re flirting with a guy you get instant gratification; you say something cute, and he looks at you like he wants to rip your clothes off.While it’s fun, and even sometimes downright dirty to be a master texter, it could put you at risk for these dating pitfalls, especially early on in a relationship.

You’re happy to stick to texts for as long as possible.
