Use jokes wisely


Not knowing if the other person is joking or not is a recipe for awkwardness. 

It's pretty hard to tell if someone is joking over text, especially when you don't know them that well. 

So until you've got to know each other a bit better, pick your jokes wisely. That means no potentially creepy jokes and absolutely no jokes about introducing him to his future mother-in-law a week after you've met.

But a good, subtle joke can be the best way to flirt in a text message. Gentle teasing and flirty banter are a good idea.

"A mushy message written in a funny way appeals to a man 100 times more than one written seriously," Kate says. "And it'll be less embarrassing if it gets shown to his friends."
