Curb your impatience – If you’re like me you want what you want when you want it. When it comes to texting someone you’re interested in though try and curb your impatience. Show some self-restraint and understand he may not think texting is as an important a medium as you do. Rather, match his interest and hold back from texting him.
Text back only when he does – Let him take the lead. You need to set the stage for the type of relationship you would like to have with him later. If you’re the one constantly texting him and showing need, then this will continue into whatever relationship you create with him. Make sure you text ONLY when he does and it wouldn’t hurt to forget to text back every once in a while.

Say ahoy to Tideline Water Taxi, the city by the bay's first water taxi service taking passengers to docks in SF, Marin and a couple of points in between. Sale from pier to pier and harbor to harbor versus riding along the curvy, narrow, rollercoaster streets of SF with cranky cab drivers.
Operating at small scale now, the convenient cab on the water has plans to bring a fleet of bigger, custom boats from Maine in just a few months. And, come America’s Cup time, they’ll offer mega-yacht transfers.
The company also offers ride share programs. Connect with your neighbors, share your fare, and cut down your carbon foot print. For guests participating in the Ride Share Club, they will be offering a discounted base fare and 12 dollars for each additional person in their party.
And, just like land cabs in SF, you can call and reserve a Tideline Water Taxi too: 415.339.0196.

How does TTAGIT differ from other social networks?
TTAGIT, is the first open-forum discussion social network and comment management system that permits users to comment on all URLs with one login, allows you to talk over any website without leaving the page. Different from any other social network, TTAGIT’s primary focus is on commenting and sharing at the source. The standard sharing platform of social networks is to bring information to the social network itself. TTAGIT not only brings information in but also leaves it where it belongs – the source. For example, with Facebook and Twitter a user can share a URL by posting to their wall or tweeting about it. With TTAGIT, not only does it post to TTAGIT, but you can also find the data on the source, the URL.
