Who can send good night texts and who can receive good night texts? People in relationships, and parents and kids, followed by friends, all enjoy the ease of good night texts. Kids might be on camp or at a friend’s house or at Mum or Dad’s house for the weekend or holidays. Husbands and wives may be away for work.
We mentioned in the section above that good night texting is done with ease. Due to this fact the content is important. The content is best when it is short and positive about the current day or the following day. Often you have already spoken to the person so the good night text is just a follow-up. If you can be witty or original that is great. Don’t try too hard – something from the heart is always best.
Due to the fact that texts need to be short – this may increase the chance of the text being taken out of context. Be aware of this when you read your text before sending it – you know what you mean – how clear is your text? Emoticons can be used to imply a joke or a certain feeling.
The good night text might be testing the waters to see if it is a good time to call and sometimes that is very considerate. I think this is a really good purpose for good night texts. Nights are often very busy and finding out the perfect window to chat is probably best done by texting and asking. The person you want to call will feel more comfortable telling you a good time to call in a text rather than if you call and ask if it is a good time. If you call and ask if it is a good time the person will probably say yes even if it isn’t.
What good night texts should definitely not do is anything that you are too afraid to do face-to-face. The art of texting is not for those who are too scared or not man or woman enough to say whatever it is face-to-face.
Good night texts shouldn’t be about anything completely new, unless you are quite sure you can give the person a snippet of information without them being anxious about the rest.
A good night time differs to us all, but we must consider the person we are sending it to and consider their night and time restraints.
If you have already called and said good night but want to say it again to be sweet – good night texts are perfect for this. It is also nice that the person has it to visibly see and it might be comforting to them.
Sending a good night text in the middle of the night could go over well or could not. It really depends why you want to do this – is it for selfish reasons or are you telling the person when they wake you are taking them on a dream holiday and couldn’t wait to tell them?
You can text from a phone using fingers or toes! Even good night emails would work because a lot of people receive emails on their phone.
To say I miss you, I love you, I am sorry (only as a repeat – the first sorry needs to be done face-to-face), so the partner doesn’t worry, to text about the day, to say thanks, to say hi, to say good-bye, to kindle a new relationship or to show interest or to a friend letting them know you are there for them – particularly if you know they have had a bad day.
Another reason to send a good night text is because you know the person is expecting a good night text from you. If you say to someone you will send them a good night text – make sure you do. Set an alarm on your phone if you think you are likely to forget.
You must also send a good night text as a reply to a good night text you received – even if you are not sure whether you want to text back – you really need to. If the person has sent an uncomfortable text and you are not sure what to text back – the best thing is probably just send a basic good night text back thanking them for their good night text. The next day you will feel fresh and find it easier to respond more appropriately or realise there is no need to text about the previous night’s text.
