Signs and Symptoms of a Short Fuse 53 CHAPTER 4
Below are some of the symptoms or signs of a Short Fuse. Some or all of these may be present but one alone does not always represent a Short Fuse. These are indicators rather than absolute rules: • Texts back from her come back so fast it’s like throwing a rubber ball at a brick wall. • You have a much higher margin for error. If you make a mistake, she will laugh it off or ignore it and try to continue the conversation. • You hint at meeting up and she jumps all over it. • She texts you twice before you text her once. • She really gets into role plays. • You make sexual jokes and she agrees or plays along. • You challenge her sexually and she one ups you. • She hints at meeting up. • She asks you what you are doing later. • She qualifies herself unprompted. • She qualifies herself when you tease her on something minor. • You can tell that she is worried about what you think. • She says ‘lol’ (laugh out loud) or ‘j/k’ (just kidding) a lot. • She drunk dials you • She uses pet names in most of her texts Examples of Short Fuses Example 1 When Dubbsy met Danielle she was very flirty, banter was easy, and she wasn’t hesitant to any of his qualifying questions or frames that he set.

Whatever, jerk.” Dubbsy: “Name calling now!! You obviously don’t want to catch up on season 2.” 54 THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO TEXT AND PHONE GAME INTRODUCTION TO DYNAMITE THEORY
Danielle: “LMAO!! I do too!

See you at 6pm.” Example 2 Braddock approached Lisa while she was typing on her laptop in a coffee shop.
