It's been another long week, and you've made it to Friday night.
While sitting on the couch, mindlessly watching Netflix and sipping on a beer, you think back to last weekend and that person you met at the bar. Or maybe it's that old hookup you haven't talked to in a while. You finally muster up the courage to send that person a text.
After you decide how many "y's" you should add after "hey," and once the timing is perfect, you send it: the standard “heyy what's up” text.
It is the perfect combination of casual but curious.
You put the phone face down on the table. Pour yourself a beer or a glass of wine before you even think to turn the phone over. You see it light up and begin to do a small victory dance.
