One of the biggest keys to mastering text game is understanding the concept of "emotional value".
Emotional value is any kind of positive stimulation that the other person feels from you in the moment. These are some of the kinds of emotional value that the other person can receive from your texts:
If you don’t give your texting partner enough emotional value, they’ll lose interest in the conversation. Conversely, if you’re texting someone who seems to have plenty of interest in the conversation, then you must be giving them a steady supply of some kind of emotional value.
It pays to understand the concept of emotional value because it plays a central role in our lives – not just in texting, but in all of dating, and in many other areas of human interaction too.
