    Discussion Questions
    1. According to the article,women text to someone whenever they’re bored or somewhere they don’t want to be. They text the people they think about first.So if a woman texts a man and says she’s at some social ocassion, such as a birthday party and a wedding, it means she’s interested in him and wishes he were there with her. Do you agree with this idea? Give me some reasons.

    2. In this article, the writer suggests to men that they use text messages as a test to see if you can call a woman to ask her out on a date. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not?

    • 1,Yes, women don’t wont to contact with a man who they are not interested in anytime.And in social occasion, there are lots of people.So I think they don’t want to be seen the situation they spent with that man.

      2,No, I don’t. If I receive a mail, I reply to whoever I am not interested in. So, even if men get replies from women, it is not always good signs.

      • Hayami, your answer is interesting for me!
        1. Yeah, women don’t make contact personally with someone whom they are not interested in. If a womam text to a man when she is in a social occasion, I think it means she is interested in him and wants to talk with him.

        2. Yeah, I agree with you. I reply to whoever it is, when I receive a mail. However, I think the idea that sending text as a test is good, because the man will know whether it is a good timing or not. If he receive a reply, it means at least she has time to reply, so he can make a phone call at the moment.

    • 1 I think so. If I have a guy whom I am interested in, I want to contact with him all day. In addition, usually I don’t text the guys whom I am not interested in.

      2It is kind of hard question, because it depends on person. However the writer is right. Because if guys use calling to ask women for dating, maybe the guys can know if she wants to date with the guys or not. In my case, If I don’t want to date with a guy, I try to make air like confusing. I don’t know how to say….hopefully u guys can understand my opinion, sorry.
