Date sends text after date has been arranged but before date has happened

Hey Lucio and Forum - I got a date!

(and it's arranged after using the principles of Text to Date)

Now- here's the new part for me. For the first time in ages my date has sent me a quick text-after the date has been arranged but before date has happened.

It goes like this: One more night to go!! Haha I'm so excited for friday hehe

I am too, however I want the response (or non response) to factor in:

  • My frame is a mix of lover/provider leaning more towards lover side
  • It's our first date - I don't want to appear over excited
  • I have work to do today so I can't let my response turn into a massive conversation

So how should I go about this? What options are best ๐Ÿ™‚


Nice, Oli!

I'd reply something like:

Looking forward to it, too ๐Ÿ™‚

That's higher power.


Ehehe right, looking forward to it, too ๐Ÿ™‚

And that's more about warmth/rapport.

Notice of course that's what "high power" is contextual.
So while even that first text would give away too much power in more normal texting, in this case, since she's already given a lot, it's Ok to also give back some more -as a matter of fact, you probably have to give some, or she might feel spurned and self-reject-.

Have you read the forum guidelines for effective communication already?
