Texting has become a huge part of modern day relationships. If you take too long to text back, your crush will think you’re not interested. Text too soon, you’ll seem too desperate. And if you dare to use too many emoticons, you might come off as childish.
Basically, texting is the worst and stupid, but more than a few of us are probably in need of a good texting coach.
Enter Lena Dunham and Idris Elba who proved to be their weight in gold when it comes to modern day romancing.
The Girls creator and the Pacific Rim actor were recent guests on the U.K.’s The Graham Norton Show where they helped one audience member text back one not-so-sweet suitor.
“This is going to be good for you, I promise!” said Dunham after she cheekily told host Graham Norton what he should text back. “You’re adorable and you could do better!”
Words of wisdom, Dunham.
Elba, on the other hand, thought the best course of action was to incite jealousy on this Lothario. So what could he possibly do? Watch the clip above to find out!
