    stoop tawk: texting and its rules – a rant.

    fairly recently i reactivated my bumble account. changed my pictures, acknowledged that i should change up the text portion but ultimately said screw it, and started swiping. it took a while, but finally one stuck. i’ve been talking to him for just under two weeks. it’s been fun, sort of exciting, and frankly, a little frustrating. it’s not him. or, i don’t think it’s him. this post is not about him. it’s about the rules. the “don’t double text” and the “wait it out”, blah, blah, blah rules. i don’t have much experience with all of this. there’s a part of me that gets mad that at 32 years old,…
