The “good morning” text in a long-distance relationship with Russian women is the equivalent of the “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” pickup line in dating: it’s just as annoying, lazy, and unoriginal.
As absurd as it may sound, the “good morning” text is ruining long-distance relationships across the world, because women are fed up with the lack of creativity and originality of their boyfriends. In April 2019, CharmDate conducted a survey of more than 1,000 single women from Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and other Eastern European countries, who admitted that good morning texts are “lazy” and “unimaginative.”
Ditch the ‘good morning’ text once and for all
While sending the “good morning” text to a significant other first thing in the morning may seem like a good idea – it seemingly shows their partner that they’re the first person on the sender’s mind when they wake up – it may actually do more harm than good.
It does not mean that everyone should ignore their significant other and avoid texting them in the morning altogether. All it means is that there are more creative, loving and caring alternatives to the “good morning” text, and the sender should use them as much as possible to make the recipient feel special.
Alternatives to the ‘good morning’ text
Adding “beautiful” or “sweetie” after “good morning” will not do the trick either. The vast majority of Russian ladies surveyed by CharmDate admitted that receiving good morning texts does not make them feel special, which makes perfect sense because a “good morning” text can be copy-pasted and sent to multiple people at a time: best friend, coworker, mom, secret lover… and, on top of it, dozens of other women on an online dating site or social media network.
A man can get away with sending the “good morning” text every once in a while, but if he repeats himself every morning, it’s no surprise that these good morning texts become annoying. A woman wants to feel special, and, moreover, she wants her significant other or suitor to put an effort into their conversation and be more enthusiastic about it.
If the “good morning” text is not a good conversation starter, then what is? There are many other texts that could replace good morning texts when you are dating a Russian, but, as a rule of thumb, always opt for something specific and customized for the recipient.
Take the initiative and make the first step
The same survey on CharmDate also showed that Russian girls want foreign men on the dating platform to be bolder and more courageous to take the initiative and make the first move. Because this is what seems appropriate in Russian culture. While sending the “good morning” text may seem like a great way to remind about oneself first thing in the morning after two people met the night before, it isn’t.
A much more preferable option to replace the “good morning” text with would be, “I had such a great time chatting with you yesterday! Can’t wait to chat more today even if means not sleeping again haha,” and throwing an emoji or two in there.
If it’s been a while since an online dating couple started chatting, the sender might want to opt for, “Thinking about you,” sending the Russian girl an inside joke about something they laughed at the night before, trying to construct a sentence in the Russian language, or anything else that will make her smile, think about the sender, and want her to put away her breakfast or sacrifice her sleep to chat with the sender.
What Russian women think about ‘good morning’ texts
The “good morning” text could probably be compared to a Facebook poke (remember those?). It’s just as unnecessary, annoying, and lazy as poking another Facebook user in an attempt to start a conversation. To conclude, sending good morning texts in an attempt to remind about oneself or start a conversation can do more harm than good.
One of the Russian girls surveyed by CharmDate wrote a comment about the whole “good morning” text thing. “When a man keeps sending the same message every single morning, it’s only a matter of time before I get annoyed and start thinking to myself, “Does this man actually deserve my attention? He doesn’t put any effort and expects me to excitedly jump for joy every time I receive this lazy text.” Men, please be more creative! We aren’t asking you to write poems or serenade to us – there are much simpler options to make us feel special!”
