There are enough ways to screw up a new relationship without having someone dump you over your emoticons.


A new survey asked people to name the worst texting mistakes people make in dating.  Here are the top five . . .


1.  Trying to break up with someone over text.


2.  Resending the same text again if you don't get a response right away.


3.  Texting unnecessary small talk like, "Hey how are you?"


4.  Using acronyms like LOL.


5.  Typing "xoxo" at the end of every message . . . especially if the other person doesn't do it.  Or if you're a guy.  Please don't text "xoxo" if you're a guy.


The survey found the BEST things you can do are:  Not texting other people when you're on a date . . . not drunk texting . . . and responding to texts in a few hours or less.
