1. Texting itself – sometimes texting in itself can be a troublesome thing if a woman thinks you are lacking the confidence to call or meet with them face to face.
2. Childish writing – even if you are busy and trying to be efficient, writing like a small child or with immature slang can end up being a huge turn off. Try to avoid this if at all possible
3. Consistent contact – trying to text and talk with women consistently can be a huge turn off as it shows that there is a sense of desperation.
4. Bombarding with texts – many guys who never get a reply from a woman will continue to bombard her with messages. Don’t do this!
5. Tacky texts – while confidence is key, being too arrogant or physically oriented with pictures and verbiage can be a huge problem as well.
