I remember our initial awkward, flirty texts, which led to pages-long text conversations that we'd have until we fell asleep.
I remember (vividly) when Nick sent a text saying he was "really into" me in the Cool Freshman high-school boy way.
Everyone can give tips for texting things that girls like, but today you’ll get tips for texting things that girls LOVE and most guys don’t know about.
Unlike Whats App, which uses your phone number to create your account and connect to your contacts, Kik allows its users to create a free account by email and password.Users can connect with each other by searching for a particular user's username, scanning a Kik code, or using their phone contacts by entering their phone number.It's also a great substitute for regular SMS text messaging, often as a way to avoid expensive data charges or to avoid going over any text limits.The biggest downside to using Kik is that you always have to use your data plan or connect to Wi Fi in order to use it, but for mobile devices users who are limited by texting, Kik is a great alternative. Chatting online is highly visual these days, and Kik allows users to message their friends with everything from photos and videos, to GIFs and emoticons.In short: move over amateurish tips for texting that you can easily come up with yourself.

Nick and I were going to go a week without any electronic communication. The rules were that we had to date like people did before cell phones and the Internet — no texting, no Snapchat, no Gchat, nothing. (2) If you use a non-cordless phone, like I almost did, it's like you are in a 5-foot prison cell of your own conversation.
We could hang out in person (obviously) or talk on our landline phones. Like every morning, my phone alarm went off and I shut it off expecting to see a text from Nick. But it was before our scheduled phone call time and Nick had just walked in the door, so he said he'd call me back. Which was really fun because what 22-year-old doesn't want to feel like an 11-year-old schoolgirl with a crush? It'd been 24 hours since we'd last communicated, which is the longest we'd gone in eight years.
With Kik, you can send and receive an unlimited number messages to anyone else who has a Kik account.
It looks and feels nearly identical to SMS text messaging, however it uses your smartphone's data plan or Wi Fi connection to send and receive messages.
Now 22, I start every day with two things: A cup of coffee and a "good morning" text from Nick. My addiction to his loving wakeup text is as real as my addiction to Starbucks.
