A Dating Mistake: Texting Before the Date

Friday: Guy gets my number.

Monday: He texts me, asking me out for the following Thursday night.

Tuesday - Thursday: We text back and forth the basics -- what we do, where we live, etc. And I get that silly grin on my face each time Adam ? From Bar lights up on my screen.

Thursday night: Date night. We have absolutely nothing to talk about now because we've already covered everything you talk about on a first date. And it's too soon to talk about fourth- and fifth-date subjects.

Lots of awkward silences later, date ends.

I do this all the time.

Why? Mostly because I'm more witty via text, which makes me seem way cooler than I really am. But then the adorable charm I worked so hard to create through words gets negated when we sit there, staring at each other over our calamari appetizer. 

Maybe one day I'll learn. In the meantime, I have to answer this text from the guy I have a date with tonight ...

Do you text before the first date?

My sil does this... back away from the g..d...key pad. Or bring up stuff from the text convo, like, so you work at so and so, I love the ......... from that company.
