This Southern boy certainly knows the way into his girlfriend's cliché heart.
Now, we know things go down differently in the South than they do where we're based in NYC. There are plenty more cowboy boots, country boys and Kenny Chesney songs, which is all "fine and dandy" in our book.
But, for a gal who's not from around those parts, a date proposal that involves large quantities of mud does not sound like a fun, romantic way to spend a Friday night.
Study shows we're more likely to reveal sensitive info via text than through a phone conversation.
Some may say there is a downside to our tendency to text, but there are plenty of perks associated with simple SMS messages. Thanks to sexting, you could be in a crowded room but still telling your boyfriend all the dirty things you want to do to him later. And, on the tamer (and potentially less harmful) side, texts are the best way to get someone to reveal the truth.

Tips to keep in mind while you navigate the world of texting etiquette!
Texting has become a primary form of communication in recent years. Relationships end and begin over text. Hurtful things are impulsively sent over text. Loving messages are sent. Requests for the grocery list or dinner are quickly communicated. Is so much texting really a good alternative for actual talking?
Yes, that's right, I texted a break-up. And I'd do it again.
It seems to show up on everyone's list of dating rules. Don't text a break-up. Have enough respect for the person to say it in person. Texting a break-up is rude and lazy. Blah, blah, blah.
I have two complaints about this.
Firstly, I really don't need to see a guy's face if he's telling me he doesn't want to be with me anymore. I don't need the visual to go with the memory. And I don't need him to see my face either, especially if I'm going to cry. My eyes get puffy when I cry. It's not my best look.

When the X-rated picture of his Anthony Weiner's manhood finally hit the internet this week, one thing was certain: "Weinergate" certainly makes people laugh. But it is also stirring discussion on infidelity in the digital age. During his speech earlier this week, Weiner emphasized that he hadn't met any of the women he'd been sexting, let alone conducted relations with them. Does this mean he's off the hook? We know that a lot of you would be angry if your husband sent naked pictures to someone else, despite not having slept with her.
