The researchers also asked participants about their sexual and relationship satisfaction, and it turns out that most people who sexted were happier.
You're really hitting it off, but the dude is basically a ghost. No one who online dates is "off the grid." He's hiding a dark secret (or he just has a girlfriend).2. And then suddenly you don't hear from him for 12 hours. Either his mom gets sick or he gets a flat tire or his mom gets sick again. Bailing eight times means he's hoping you'll send him nude pictures without him ever having to actually meet you.9. He's always complaining about the long hours he works, but he makes really good money, so it's OK. Everyone likes to talk themselves up when you first meet them, but he really forces conversations in odd directions just to get the chance to make himself look cool. Unless you are actually a giant baby, Benjamin Button-style, there's no reason for some guy you don't know to call you that.The other person should feel comfortable and confident on their own IF they decide to send, which leads me to my next point… The problem with unsolicited nudes isn’t the surprise, it’s that it’s usually the absolute wrong damn time to receive them.We all love the fantasy of receiving dirty pics to save our mind from a boring meeting, but the reality is that it can be a huge distraction.And people who were dating, but not "very committed," were happier with their relationships as a whole when they sent sexy photos or texts to one another.(People in "very committed" relationships didn't have any effect from sexting, probably because they've seen it all already.) Men were more likely to be satisfied from sexting, which is obvious to anyone who has been bombarded with nudes on Tinder or OKCupid.
