The Booty Text

Dear Courvoisier,
Could you tell me whassup with the random “I miss u” text in the middle of the night?

No-Textin’ Betty,

Ahhh! This is definitely an interesting one. I personally am not a fan of the stexting. In fact, I couldn’t take any dude seriously if the main form of our communication was text messaging. Are you serious? How impersonal.

But I can see how it makes playing the field easy. For example, those random “I miss you… I want see you tonight” text that comes out of nowhere, are booty calls without the call. If you don’t know, now you know… it is call a mass booty call. It don’t get no better than that for the player. Even I, who don’t have the time for games has pulled this trick, minus the I miss you… more like “Whachudoing?”

So how does this work?

Well the first to respond with the most interesting offer you entertain. It is like a secret auction where only the seller can see the offers. (chuckle) Don’t fall privy to these.

If you aren’t interested in playing the game, don’t respond to the text. The no response text is the strongest message you could ever send. Otherwise don’t be surprised if the next message you receive is on some send me a picture of it… I miss it! I am never surprised at how low the negro will go.

Texting sometimes is the easiest way to keep a chic hanging on. Get over that baby-boo-sweety. Like a friend of mine says “text my name… text my name...” (chuckle)

Much luv until next week… peace :)
P.S. I don’t know what it is but I get ask the most no-brainer questions sometimes.

P.S.S. WOW! B's stage presence has come a long way!
