Do you use BBM to flirt? Do you use BBM to hook up?
Gone are the days that you have to give out fake phone numbers to people trying to pick you up. You can simply share your pin and you can always delete them in a couple of hours with little to no regret. No more screening phone calls and avoiding that stalker that you shouldn't have given your number to.
You still need to have permission to BBM people so it's more intimate and immediate than texting. You can exchange PINS and start chatting rite away, getting to know eachother, and if you want - things can get pretty steamy. You can also make things more attractive by setting a sexy avatar or adding a flirty personal message as your status update.
What puts BBM lightyears ahead of texting is the ability to know when your messages are sent, delivered and read. It's the next best thing to a real conversation. Immediate response times are mandatory and keep up the excitement mid-flirtation. You'll know right away if you're being ignored. So it's best to schedule those booty calls ahead of time before the alcohol gets you slurring your words (or misspelling your BBMs)
And if you don't have that special someone yet don't fret - magic can happen over a spontaneous drunken BBM text (trust me I know) So BBM addicts, Valentines Day is just around the corner. Who will you be sexting?
