Like many people, I really went to town this year during the Christmas season. Yes, I overindulged, even after reading all the helpful advice scattered throughout magazines, such as “fill up your plate with veggies,” “stay away from the dips,” and “shun the Christmas cookies and eggnog.”
I realized the extent of my feasting as I felt a new uncomfortable pressure around my waist as I slipped into my favorite jeans. It was time to fight back. I decided to sample all the various classes at the gym. One class was given by an uber-ripped instructor who had something even more impressive than his hard-earned physique – his amazing enthusiasm for helping people get in shape.
The Great American Bake-Off
As my girlish figure slowly returned, I decided to do what I do best: bake. One day, I took a few of my creations to the gym as a gift for this instructor. It was an unlikely treat for someone who was probably living off massive amounts of protein powder and egg whites. However, I decided to go for it. End result? He loved them. Moral of the story: be unique, and be bold. Don’t believe that just because someone has 5% body fat that they won’t enjoy some cookies.
Guess what? The same applies to texting. You can give your partner the same type of treat using your cell phone.
Funny Flirty Texts That Reel Them In
Ladies, if you are dating a macho man, don’t always shower him with sexy messages that stroke his big male ego. Instead, send him something cute from time to time. Not sure what to send? How about a stupid joke, like:
(message 1) “What do you have when you hold two little green balls in the palm of your hand?”
(message 2) “Kermit the Frog’s undivided attention.”
(message 3) “Hope I’ll get some undivided attention later…”
Guys, if you are married to a lady who has a high-stress job, don’t always send cool and collected text messages such as “Hey love, hope your meeting goes well today.” Instead, surprise her with something witty or sexy, like this “I bet that silky underwear you’re wearing today feels pretty good on your butt, huh?”
The same goes with strangers, avoid being boring. If you’re texting someone that you just met, go beyond just being polite. Try sending an honest, yet charming message, such as, “Hello Patricia, I don’t want you to slip away, any ideas what I should do? ”
Make Your Messages Memorable
Girls, if you have been dating your man for a while and you are always lovey-dovey, surprise him with something a little sexy. Start out slow with “Do you prefer red or black?” He’ll probably want to know what you are referring to, in which case you can send him a flirty text: “I’m out shopping for lingerie and couldn’t make up my mind. Thanks for your input! ;)”
Take chances with your texting. It should be fun. You never know what your partner secretly craves to receive from you…and if you don’t try, you’ll never find out. Don’t assume that super-ripped guys don’t like cookies and that exotic dancers don’t like teddy bears.
Never be a predictable texter. Don’t be afraid to stray from safe, standard texts that will get you minimal returns. Be unique, and make every text a treat! Funny flirty texts can open the floodgates of passion and unlock a whole new playground of creativity between you and your partner.
