Overview

Flirtexting—flirting via text (think Blackberry) in search of fun and love—has revolutionized the dating game. And savvy girls can learn how to make the technology work for them in this definitive guide to using flirtexting to find a guy (or two). Here are the rules, spelled out clearly, fearlessly, and with more than a hint of attitude.

You see, rather than feel disappointed that her guy isn't making an effort to talk F2F (face to face), the flirtexting aficionado works it. Debra Goldstein and Olivia Baniuszewicz, graduates of The Rules and He's Just Not That Into You, guide their readers into the next generation of love. Not to give too much away, but the secret is having the advantage of time—and the power to keep the ball in her court until she lets it go. Readers will learn how to create the BPT (best possible text), save themselves from sending the right text to the wrong person, master the steps to manipulate a text, know just when to reply, and much more. This is a book that every bold and modern woman with two opposable thumbs will love.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
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.
