The creators of HeTexted.com—the wildly popular blog for decoding “obtuse male texting”—give you a frank, funny, and refreshingly helpful guide to dating in the digital age.
You’re a busy, intelligent, modern woman. You stay on top of work email. You “like” all the baby photos your sister posts on Facebook. You found your dream job through LinkedIn. But when your crush texts you “What’s up?” every few days, yet never asks you out, what the heck does that mean?
These days, dating is more confusing than ever. Friending? Following? Liking? Poking? Linking? LOLing? WTF? In an era when FaceTime is no longer the same as face-to-face, it’s no wonder you can’t tell if he’s into you or just really into his iPhone.
This hilarious and essential guide from the founders of HeTexted.com—with totally straightforward guy sight from the HeTexted Bros—will help you autocorrect your digital dating life, from decoding your Facebook friendships, to reading the intentions behind guys’ perplexing texts, to deciding when—if ever—you should text him first. It’s He’s Just Not That Into You for the digital age and What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a second date—all in one invaluable package!
Lisa Winning hails from Australia and attended the London School of Economics before landing in New York City to figure out this whole advice game. Having spent years watching her girlfriends scream “he texted!” the morning after a long night out, she realized they needed a bigger outlet. Lisa figured there should be a way girls could get answers on the questions they care about most. So, she created HeTexted.
Carrie Henderson McDermott is the co-founder and editorial director of HeTexted. Previously, Carrie worked at Glamour magazine, where she wrote about all things beauty. So, when she’s not busy telling you how to respond to the 3am text (read: don’t!), she can point you in the direction of a mean blow-out. Or explain why most guys hate red lipstick on a first date. Carrie spent a bunch of single years in New York City before she met a guy at a bar. On a Tuesday. At karaoke night. Then, he texted. Now, she calls him her husband.
