Suri Cruise, 14, Rocks Leopard Print PantsWhile Shopping With A Friend In NYC— Pics

Suri Cruise looked stylish and all grown up when she stepped outside with a friend to go to a downtown Manhattan supermarket and returned while lifting a heavy bag.

Suri Cruise, 14, was seen on an outing that didn’t include her mom Katie Holmes, 41, on Aug. 10 and it proved she’s getting older and looking fantastic! The brunette beauty visited a downtown Manhattan supermarket with a friend during the sighting and wore a stylish pair of blue leopard print pants as well as a gray top and blue sandals. She also stayed safe from the COVID-19 pandemic by wearing a face mask and kept her long locks down.

At one point, she was carrying what appeared to be a heavy green bag after leaving the supermarket as her friend walked beside her and also carried similar bags. She seemed calm and relaxed and looked confident as she continued to walk by many locals in the Big Apple. Although Suri usually goes on outings with her mom, her most recent stop at the store isn’t the first time she’s been seen alone or just with a friend.

On Aug. 1, she stepped outside all on her own to pick up her two dogs from a groomers in NYC and looked equally as awesome. She wore a white short-sleeved crop top with loose blue jeans and sandals. She also wore a blue face mask and carried a cute red purse as her hair was tied back into a ponytail.

Suri, whose father is Tom Cruise, 58, was also spotted without Katie when she went out with some gal pals on July 14. They all enjoyed lunch as the teen wore a long light pink flowy dress that was perfect for summer. She paired it with white sneakers and a hot pink face mask.

Suri’s summer hangouts come after NYC had its residents stay in quarantine for most of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the city is still being cautious, many people, like Suri, have been going on errands or fun outings while staying protected with their face masks. We hope to see more cute sightings of Suri and her mom soon in the next few weeks of the month!

  • The actor earned $87.5million, $23.5m of which came from Netflix

  • Lin-Manuel Miranda made his debut at number seven, earning $45.5m 
  • Adam Sandler had the biggest paycheck from Netflix, earning $31million of his $41million yearly take from the platform 

Dwayne Johnson has topped Forbes magazine’s list of Hollywood’s highest paid actors for the second year in a row.

The wrestler-turned-actor bested the competition by taking home $87.5million.

Hefty paychecks from Netflix helped these A-listers earn big, according to Forbes. The streaming giant shelled out a combined $140.5 for six of the actors gracing the top 10.

Netflix checks make up 25% of the $545.5 million made by the group as a whole.

Payday: Netflix checks make up 25% of the $545.5 million made by the group as a whole

The actor formerly known as The Rock’s bottom line got a boost courtesy of a $23.5million payday from Netflix for the upcoming Red Notice. His Under Armour line Project Rock has also been profitable.

Ryan Reynolds hit number two, taking home $71.5million. The charming Canadian received a hearty chunk of change for his Netflix work, making more than $20million each for Six Underground and Red Notice. Netflix announced they were making another Reynolds movie in July, meaning he can only expect another big payday.

Mark Wahlberg took the third spot with $58million. His action comedy Spenser Confidential was a giant hit on Netflix, becoming the third most-watched original film on the platform. Behind the scenes Wahlberg made big bucks as the producer of the docuseries McMillions and Wahl Street.

Vin Diesel is just behind with $54million annually, putting him at number five. Though he’ll have to postpone his massive backend payday for F9 after the film’s release was pushed to April 2021, he cashed in on the franchise as producer on the animated Netflix series Fast & Furious Spy Races.

Bollywood star Akshay Kumar made it to number six with $48.5million. While he earned some of that sweet streaming cash from The End for Amazon Prime, a majority of his checks come from his wide range of endorsement deals.

Lin-Manuel Miranda made his list debut at number seven, earning $45.5million. Disney snagged the worldwide movie rights to his Broadway superhit Hamilton for a whopping $75million earlier this year. He’s primed for another big success next year when the adaptation of In The Heights comes out.

Adam Sandler ranked nine with $41million. He is a bona fide Netflix darling, earning $31 million  — 75% of what he made all year— as part of his four-film, $250 million deal signed in 2014. He plans on riding that momentum, signing another four-movie deal with the platform in January. And for his critically-acclaimed turn in Uncut Gems, he added $5million to his coffers.

Rounding out the top 10 is international icon Jackie Chan, who earned $40million. He keeps things consistent, releasing on average five films a year. Endorsement and licensing deals help flesh out those numbers.

Five-year-old boy who rode his bike into neighbor’s yard is shot dead at point blank range in front of his two sisters, 8 and 7

North Carolina police charged a neighbor Monday with the murder of a five-year-old boy who was riding his bike in his own yard when he was shot at point blank range. 

Darius Sessoms, 25, was taken into custody by Wilson police around 24 hours after he approached Cannon Hinnant in front of the young boy’s father’s house and shot him in the head. 

Hinnant’s seven-year-old and eight-year-old sisters witnessed the killing, their mother told WRAL.    

The motive for the murder is still unclear but neighbors claim Sessoms had dinner with Hinnant’s father Austin on Friday and had been over at the house earlier that day. 

He lived right next door and the killing is not believed to be random.

A GoFundMe established by a family member claims that the death was motivated by a ‘senseless act’ and that the young boy rode into Sessoms’ yard. 

‘Sunday, August 9, 2020 a sweet soul named Cannon Hinnant was taken from this world over a senseless act,’ it reads. 

‘A beautiful 5 year old baby boy riding his bicycle was shot by his neighbor point blank in Wilson NC. One minute he is enjoying his life, the next it all ends because he rode into his neighbors yard.’ 

Cannon Hinnant, 5, was riding his bike in front of his father's house in Wilson on Sunday when Sessoms approached and shot him in the head. The motive has not been released

The young boy was set to start Kindergarten Monday and had just learned to write his name.  

‘He was just a loving kid,’ his mother Bonny, who lives in another part of North Carolina, told the Wilson Times. 

Hinnant’s family said they have known the suspect for years and did not believe he could be capable of murder. 

‘We used to play together and I never thought he’d kill someone. A mother now has to lay her son to rest at 5-years-old which she should never have to do. He’ll never be forgotten,’ Rachel Pipkin, a cousin of Cannon’s mother told CBS. 

Police were called to the scene on Archers Road at around 5.30pm Sunday where Hinnant was found with a gunshot wound. 

Emergency responders tried to save him and he was taken to the Wilson Medical Center but later died. 

Sessoms was immediately identified as the suspect.  

He fled the scene in a black 2019 Toyota Corolla and was later located by authorities in a residence in Goldsboro. 

Police charged him with first degree murder and he is being held with no bond.

According to the Wilson Times, Sessoms was previously convicted of felony larceny of firearms in Wilson County in March 2016, misdemeanor maintaining a place for a controlled substance in Wake County in April 2016 and felony marijuana possession in Nash County in November 2016. 

Goldsboro Police Department, Wayne County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service task force assisted in his arrest.  

‘The Wilson Police Department sends its sincerest condolences and prayers to the family of Cannon during this tragic time,’ a police spokesperson said Monday. 

Neighbor Doris Labrant witnessed the shooting through her window from across the street. 

She told WRAL she saw Sessoms run up to the young boy, put the gun to his head and fire before running back to his own house. 

‘My first reaction was he’s playing with the kids,’ Labrant said. ‘For a second, I thought, “That couldn’t happen”. People don’t run across the street and kill kids.’

On seeing Hinnant’s father’s reaction, however, she realized that the shooting was real and ran to lock herself inside and call 911. 

‘Austin ran out of that house screaming and picked him up. They’ll never get over it,’ she said.

‘You don’t expect to see somebody shoot someone.

‘It’s almost like seeing a movie and then all of a sudden it dawns on you it’s not a movie.’

She added that Sessoms’ parent have lived on the street for about 28 years and that she had not previously heard any altercations between the families.

‘There was no yelling, screaming,’ she claimed.

Neighbors gathered around the scene on Sunday night, shocked that the killing happened in their quiet neighborhood.

‘It’s usually quiet here. You might hear cars kind of loud and stuff like that, but as far as this right here going on, no, you don’t see nothing like this. It’s sad, it hurts and justice needs to be served,’ said neighbor Frank Harvey told CBS.

Speaking the WRAL, the boy’s grandmother said that the family is happy to see Sessoms in custody but are devastated by Cannon’s death. 

They held a tribute Monday afternoon in which they called for an end to violence against children. 

‘Really everybody just wants answers as to why this was done. There will be justice,’ said Allan Wooten, the boy’s uncle. 

The event was attended by the town’s Mayor who also paid tribute to the young boy. 

‘I have a child that’s 5-years-old. My heart broke right then. I went home right then and I took my baby and just hugged her,’ said Carlton Stevens 

If anyone has any information that could help, they are urged to contact Wilson Police at (252) 399-2323 or Crime Stoppers at (252) 243-2255.

Sushant Singh Rajput’s former assistant claims, actor was dating Kriti Sanon not Rhea, said- I used to call him Didi

Sushant Singh Rajput’s death is going to be two months. People are still paying tribute to him on social media. CBI has an actor’s case in hand. The matter is becoming serious. People are demanding justice. People say that it is not a suicide but a planned murder. Sushant Singh Rajput’s experts are sharing some special moments by remembering old things. In the interview with Zoom, Sushant’s former assistant Ankit Acharya has spoken openly on the relationship between actor and Kriti Sanon. 

Ankit considered Sushant like his elder brother. Recalling his last meeting, he said that Sushant was more than a brilliant person. Who was there before Riya Chakraborty in Sushant’s life? On the question of who he was with, Ankit told that before Riya’s arrival, Kriti was Madam. That means I used to speak Kriti Didi. Sushant was not in depression when he was with him at that time. So it was at that time to laugh with them, eat together, talk together. But I don’t know what happened to them after that. Yes, it is true that Kriti was a sister at that time.

There was no problem in Sushant’s life. Ankita further says that yes, when Kriti was a sister, she had no such problem. Just when my health deteriorated, I used to say that call a doctor. Such as fever, cough, body pain is all normal. So we used to call the doctor. So do not know about Kriti Didi, he did not share, this is the case.

BLM protesters gather outside Chicago PD in support of looters as organizer claims ‘anything they wanted to take, they can take because these businesses have insurance’

‘Looting is reparations’: BLM protesters gather outside Chicago PD in support of looters who ransacked city Sunday night, as organizer claims ‘anything they wanted to take, they can take because these businesses have insurance’

Black Lives Matter Chicago said early Monday’s looting of stores was a form of ‘reparations’ as the group held a protest Monday night in support of the more than 100 people arrested after an evening of violence. 

Downtown Chicago was otherwise quiet after authorities cut off access, with drawbridges leading into the city pulled up and freeway exits blocked after riots sparked by a false rumor of a child shot by police.

At least 13 police officers were injured as the violence claimed an estimated $65 million in property damage. 

Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, called the looting ‘reparations’.

 ‘I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,’ Atkins said. ‘That makes sure that person has clothes.

‘Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.’

Drawbridges leading in to Chicago were lifted on Monday evening to prevent a repeat of the violence of Sunday night

Earlier, Mayor Lori  Lightfoot had warned looters who ransacked the city that they are being sought by police and angrily hit back at questions over whether a failure to prosecute those involved in the looting after George Floyd’s death had created a sense of impunity.  

The man whose actions sparked the unrest, 20-year-old Latrell Allen, was charged with attempted murder of police.

Allen, who had previous arrests for child endangerment, domestic battery and burglary, was confronted by police on Sunday afternoon and fled, turning around and shooting multiple rounds at officers as he fled. He was shot and injured by police, returning fire, and rumor then spread that a child had been killed by officers.

Social media was soon alight with rallying cries for protests and looting. 

On Monday afternoon, SWAT teams were seen patrolling the streets, in a bid to avoid a repeat of the chaos. 

Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx dropped charges against several hundred protesters arrested for looting and other offenses during the George Floyd protests. 

David Brown, Chicago Police Superintendent, said at the Monday press conference that looters could have been behaving ‘as if there are not consequences’ because of ‘what happened previously’.

A reporter, addressing the police chief, said: ‘It almost sounds as though you were saying the reason we have this is the courts and the prosecutors were not doing their job, that they were going too easy on the looters from the last time around. Is that my understanding?’

Brown replied: ‘Don’t take it from me. Just go about what’s been done. I don’t want to do your job for you but go about what’s been done. There were no consequences for the people arrested.’

At this point, Lightfoot stood up and addressed the reporter.

‘Let’s be clear,’ she said. ‘Don’t bait us! OK? Do not bait us. Do not bait us. 

‘This is a serious situation. People are concerned about their safety. Officers are concerned about their safety. So don’t bait us. 

‘What we’re saying is, as a result of what happened last night, there have to be consequences. 

‘We’ve got teams of people that are aggressively out there identifying the people responsible, looking at the plates, and working on bringing them to justice.

‘But when we do, and we do make those arrests, our expectation is that is going to be treated with the level of seriousness that it should be, period.’

She angrily denied that Foxx’s decision, or any other ruling by the Chicago authorities, contributed towards the unrest. 

‘Don’t try to bait us, mischaracterize, pit one against the other,’ she said. 

‘We’re not playing that. We’re in a serious situation here, and we need a serious response. That’s what we’re saying, period.’

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago Police Supt. David Brown held a news conference Monday morning, condemning the riots

Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago Police Supt. David Brown held a news conference Monday morning, condemning the riots

The tense stand-off that lasted several hours on Sunday night and in to Monday morning was described by Deputy Police Chief Yolanda Talley as ‘very hostile’.  

In response to that incident, people on social media organized for a caravan of cars to descend on the city’s downtown shopping district to loot. 

Police found out about the posts and within 15 minutes were downtown – but the violence had begun. 

Cars plowed through storefronts to give the crowds easy access.

Despite there being 400 officers dispatched to the area, the officers struggled to keep up with the crowds. 

One officer was attacked with a bottle, another had his nose broken and a group of different officers were shot at by drive-by assailants while trying to arrest other looters. 

Along the Magnificent Mile, people were seen going in and out of stores carrying shopping bags full of merchandise as well as at a bank, the Chicago Tribune reported, and as the crowd grew vehicles dropped off more people in the area.

One officer was seen slumped against a building, several arrests were made and a rock was thrown at a police vehicle, the newspaper said. 

Police worked early Monday to disperse the crowds.

There was a large police presence Monday morning outside an Apple store located north of Chicago’s downtown area.

Blocks away, debris was strewn in parking lots in front of a Best Buy and a large liquor store.

Train and bus service into downtown was temporarily suspended at the request of public safety officials, the Chicago Transit Authority said on Twitter. 

Bridges over the Chicago River were lifted, preventing travel to and from the downtown area, and Illinois State Police blocked some expressway ramps into downtown. 

On Monday morning, police were still arresting people at a Best Buy which was among the stores that had been ransacked. 

Some of the city’s bridges were raised and tunnels were closed while police tried to regain control of the situation.   

Lightfoot said it was disturbing that the looters targeted small businesses that are still struggling to recover from months of COVID-19 closures. 

‘This was an assault on our city. It undermines public safety and breathes a sense of insecurity among our residents. 

‘It undermines our recovery efforts – these same stores were hit previously, not just by looting but by closures related to COVID-19.

‘They are also small stores and restaurants all of which we’re in the process of recovering and getting back to work, and now this.’  

She said there was ‘no justification’ for the looting, and said it had nothing to do with Black Lives Matter, or George Floyd, or Michael Brown – the Missouri teenager shot dead six years ago Sunday. 

‘I don’t care – I do not care – whatever justification was given for this,’ she said. 

‘There is no justification for criminal behavior ever.

‘You have no right to take and destroy the property of others. 

‘Our residents deserve to be safe. 

‘Our businesses deserve to understand and enjoy safety and security,’ she said. 

She pleaded with prosecutors and the courts to do their part to bring those responsible to justice once they are found and identified.

‘Our police officers deserve to be able to do their job without having to worry about shots being fired, being maced – this is not anywhere near acceptable. 

‘I call upon our state’s attorney and our courts to make sure these individuals are arrested and held accountable. 

‘Put your best people on this. We have made the case – these people need to be held accountable. ‘We can’t continue to allow this to happen,’ she said. 

‘We woke up in shock this morning. These individuals engaged in brazen destruction. 

‘This had nothing to do with legitimate protected First Amendment speech. Regardless what occurred in our downtown was abject criminal behavior, pure and simple. 

‘There cannot be any excuse for it. Period. 

‘This was not legitimate First Amendment speech, not poor people engaged in petty theft to feed themselves and their families… 

‘This was straight up felony criminal conduct,’ she said.   

It was one of a handful of incidents of unrest across America that coincided with the sixth anniversary of Michael Brown’s death

Fun whatsapp games Texting Games To Play For Couples

You can also get to know a new boyfriend or girlfriend quite well by playing text games. In our busy days, we may not be able to call and say hi, all the time, but a private little text game will keep you smiling through your 9-5 day.

Get ready to have some serious fun. Some texting games are for girls only, if you have a jealous streak. Let the games begin! Never, ever, would I.

Have fun testing each other’s limits. Don’t be too personal or outrageous but stuck to real life, or super- funny scenarios. Never, ever, would I steal office stationery. Nor have you “borrowed” a pen…forever. Never, ever, would I kiss a stranger?

 [amazon box=”B0819H77TB” “small”]     

This game is usually played as a drinking game – where if you have, done the deed you drink a shot. Swap this for an emoticon answer and keep it real. A thumbs up or down will also work. Texting games to play with a girl will bond you in a fun, flirty way.

If you’re playing in your downtime after hours, you could include alcohol but because there’s just two of you paying it would be better to swap out shots, for sips of a cocktail or beer.

Getting smashed is not the idea here – just to have fun and get to know each other a little more. It’s a spark for future conversations too. It’s parable best to nix the beverages unless you’re ready to spend the next day recovering from a major hangover.

Never, ever, would I drink too much on a work night. Text games can keep you connected throughout your working day. A little buzz – that you’re thinking of each other – and fun to be a bit silly too.

Kiss, Marry, Kill | whatsapp games | Whatsapp games dare

Kiss, Marry, Kill

This one is a classic that your girlfriend or boyfriend will love playing with you. Tease each other and see which celebs, actors, musicians, sports star of just about anyone your partner would – kiss, kill or marry!

How about Britney Spears? Barrack O’ Bama? Tom Hanks? Kim Kardashian? Beware – adding real people that you both know is asking for trouble.

Yes, you suspect your girlfriend has a secret little crush on your brother but adding his name to the mix will only make her feel embarrassed! Get creative with your names and have fun!

Remember this is all fun – just because your boyfriend dreams of kissing or marrying Drew Barrymore doesn’t mean he doesn’t love you. It’s make-believe and pretend.

If you’re a little insecure, and not quite confident enough to entertain the idea of your love interest with other people, it’s a better idea to skip it – as it is an ideal texting games to play with only with girls.

[amazon box=”B07SDFC9QT” “small”]

Keep yourselves amused by adding another category if you want to – blackmail, send a plague too, curse persistent insomnia, serenade in the moonlight. It’s up to you. Keep it flirty and fun and you’ll both get a kick out of your answers.

20 Questions – whatsapp games

A classic text game for the couple that enjoys guessing games. All you need to do is think of an object, for example, carrots. Then your girlfriend or boyfriend has 20 questions they can ask to whittle down the field.

Animal, mineral or vegetable is always a good one to narrow the options. If you would like to up the stakes, you can still use the game to choose who pays for a date, or who gets to pick the movie on your date.

If you’re both competitive, you can keep a total running score, and offer a prize to the weekly winner too. The prize, or not, you can have fun to play knowledge detective.

This game will suit people with a bit more patience. If your girlfriend or boyfriend gets bored quickly, then this may be too much like hard work. Keep it real, and stretch your brain with this clue game. It’s up to you if you give a hint or not.

It’s all about having fun, so start easy and work towards more unique objects. Chose flirty forfeits if your love interest loses – kisses and hugs, ice- cream in the park. So, it’s a win-win!

Funny Picture Challenge – whatsapp games | Whatsapp games dare

This unique text game will refine your Google research skills as you can try to outdo each other in finding absurdly hilarious images. The idea here is that one person proposes an outrageous theme or title, and the other person sees a matching picture.

Think ice skating puppy or a man dressed as an ice- cream, go crazy – zebras doing a line dance, people in a bizarre hat. Your imagination is your only limit. Think out of the box with this one and get ready to chuckle all day long.

If you both love celebrities you can challenge each other to find amusing pics of your favorite actors, musicians or artists captured doing funny things. Even ordinary things will seem amusing versus red carpet poses example, Kim Kardashian, shopping for toilet paper.

Pictures are quick and easy to send and will brighten your day. Turn up the fun instantly by taking exciting picture challenges. For example, an eskimo on a surfboard, a roller skating panda.

Guess the Lyric/Line – play these whatsapp games | Whatsapp games dare | whatsapp games with answers

Guess the Lyric/Line

You both need to be film buffs or music lovers for this one to work. You will need to quote a line from a film or lyrics from a song. Your boyfriend or girlfriend will then need to guess the movie title, actor or song, and musician.

Keep track of points or play for fun. If you’re both big fans it will be fun, if not it will be torture for your crush to Google everything, and feel like hard work.

It’s a cool trivia text game, but you both need expert knowledge and are familiar with the same films and artists for this one to be enjoyed.

[amazon box=”B01B1WQTF0″ “small”]

You can make it a little easier too if you like. Finish the title, finish the lyrics or name the actor. If your boyfriend or girlfriend is battling to answer, then it’s probably best to go for super well-known classics. It’s better to play fair than win. It’s all about fun, not an IQ test.

If you’re both experts, you can up the ante and include more obscure facts like awards, random trivia, and personal biographic info. You’ll both enjoy the challenge of testing your super fan status.

Texting games to play with your boyfriend will keep him distracted all day long – in a right way.

Name Trivia Challenge

You will need to select a category first, to play this game. It’s sometimes a drinking game at parties and if you can’t answer there is a forfeit. For couples, you could play with a prize in mind and use a scoring system.

Subtract from 10, for example, to perform using points. Categories can be anything you like, for example, country names, celebrities, American states, televisions shows, film titles.

The idea here is to add another name, using the last letter of the name used an example, celebrities: Jennifer Anniston, Norma Jean Baker, Renee, and Zellweger.

When you play in a group you can use a double letter name to reverse the order; when playing as a couple, this rule need not apply – you will revert the turn to yourself.

Truth or Dare

whatsapp games | Whatsapp games dare | whatsapp games with answers

You can have endless fun playing this text game with your girlfriend or boyfriend. For the dares, you will need photographic evidence that they have been completed. Be sensible and don’t get over personal or cross the line with your truth questions!

Keep it friendly and flirty, or it could lead to trouble.

Honesty is required and a willing spirit. If your partner is not the adventurous type, it may be a little too much, too soon. Use your judgment to decide if you’re both ready to play this revealing game.

You could ask anything at all but don’t go crazy. Example, have you ever gone skinny dipping? Have you ever accidentally shoplifted something? All good – have you ever cheated on your girlfriend?

Would you rather ….

whatsapp games | Whatsapp games dare | whatsapp games with answers

Would you rather ….

This one will keep you thinking up fun scenarios and clue you up to your love interests likes and dislikes in a funny texting game. Conjure up dilemmas that will keep their interest piqued – which one is worse?

Which option would your boyfriend or girlfriend pick? You can choose safer alternatives or risk!

[amazon box=”B07NCRLGYH” “small”]

These are as follows:

  • Would you rather be a world-famous stunning model with a super low IQ or a genius scientist who is not attractive at all?
  • Would you instead have a big nose and small but or small nose and big bottom? You will soon get the hang of it!

Would you instead work for a horrible boss for an excellent salary, or, a great boss for an average paycheck? Live on tropical island amity a great job and be wheat intolerant or live in the suburbs, with an average job, allergy free?

Would you rather live weak as a person with unquestionable morals or live rich with questionable ones? Would you rather be overweight and happy or have the body of your dreams and have IBS?

Be your Muses – whatsapp games | Whatsapp games dare | whatsapp games with answers

This one if for the creative couple who enjoy books, co-write your own stories. Decide what the word limit will be and keep the plot moving. Can you finish each other’s sentences? Put your creative powers together and have fun with this text writing game.

It will twist and turn, keeping you both ready to add the next line. Example: Rose felt happier than ever because she’d won the lottery. She quit her job.

It’s up to you – sentences, paragraphs, but when you’re texting you need to keep it a little shorter. It’s not a novel that you’re writing (Although that may be fun too). You’re having fun with words and letting your imagination free.

You can keep the story going for as long as you’d like to. Who knows? Your texting story game could lead to the outline of the best-selling novel, or just keep you amused.

Don’t overthink you’re writing either; nobody is checking your grammar – it’s all about fun texting your boyfriend or girlfriend and being creative.

If you’re a little more serious in your relationship, you could try your erotic fiction or love fantasy story. If you’ve just started dating this is probably not a good idea. Ditto if you have a jealous nature.

You don’t want to confuse fiction with reality and feel like you don’t live up to some fictional character.
