The Brief: To double text means to send two text messages in a row before getting a response for the first one.
To some, double texting, particularly in a flirtatious conversation, is a faux pas – an indication of desperation. To others, it’s simply a way to emphasize a point and to remind the recipient to respond. It can be embarrassing and awkward to be left on read after double texting – a sign that someone is ducking or avoiding you.
are people actually afraid to double text??? i will send 15 messages in a row and feel no shame whatsoever
