Reply To: Persistence
Persistence in real life shows that you’re fearless. That’s what it takes to keep going while someone is saying no right to your face. Persistence in texting does nothing for you. It just makes you seem more desperate. The way to handle a no or a lack of response to a text message is to wait a few weeks and send a ping. A ping is a light, flirty text message apropos of nothing. Wait for her to respond with some interest, then ask her out. Will it work? If she’s already said no or ignored you once, unlikely. But that’s your best bet with texting. Continuing to text after she ignores you or says no just lowers your value.
