The Joy of Text

Mating, Dating, and Techno-Relating

Dating has never been easy, but in the age of text messages, emails, and evolving smart phone technology, it can be an absolute minefield. Good thing The Joy of Text establishes hard and fast rules to help women navigate romance that goes bleep in the night. The book also offers tips on analyzing the text, timing, and tone of various mediums. Etiquette advice, in a world where the handwritten thank-you note is all but obsolete, is detailed here too. 


“Kristina Grish shows that the great leap forward in communication has dragged along with it a blight of text-driven power games and misunderstandings. Shrewdly and wittily, she points the way on alphanumeric dating.”
