How should you reply when she asks what you’re doing tonight? The questions are potentially endless. Fortunately, flirtexting experts Olivia Baniuszewicz and Debra Goldstein—who literally wrote the book on flirtexting—are here to save the day.””
““If only poor Mary, Drew Barrymore’s character in He’s Just Not That Into You, had a copy of Flirtexting on hand to help her navigate the world of online dating, she might not have ended up with a schlep like the ScarJo-besotted Kevin Connolly.””

Arguing that "boys text; therefore girls need to know how to flirtext," first-time authors (and, presumably, BFFAEs) Goldstein and Baniuszewicz show the next generation of single women how to entertain suitors with the art of text message flirtation. Taking a healthy cut from The Rules ("playing a little hard to get, to get what you want"), the duo schools readers on timing replies, canceling dates and, perhaps most importantly, how to avoid "mis-texting." Dissecting every possible text-based interaction (often with multiple examples), Goldstein and Baniuszewicz's overwrought guidebook will be received, depending on one's perspective, as either indispensable or hopelessly immature. Walking readers through all facets of text message craft (including enlisting the aid of friends), the exuberant authors also supply plenty of sample responses and conversations, a litany of guy-centric movie quotes (because "guys love to quote movies") and a guide to common abbreviations (including BFFAE: "best friends forever and ever"). With this guide at hand, young singles won't be at a loss for words-at least until the next F2F (face to face) encounter. 20 color illus.
