How are you supposed to progress the relationship if you never “touch-base” by actually speaking to one another? Or, am I just old fashioned (39) and not used to this new aspect of dating? Telling someone where you’re located in a crowded theater or bar. There’s no context, tone, voice, or facial expressions to modify your message. You’re encouraged to misspell, you’re discouraged from saying anything deep or meaningful.
Writing flirty or dirty notes to be provocative and naughty. The next thing you know, you’re having a vicious argument that could have been easily avoided in person. Essentially, texting is emailing for the lazy, illiterate and mobile.
Because texting is only enabled by the person who writes back to the text. You’re letting him know that it’s a poor way to reach you.
Nothing will turn off a guy faster than: “I HATE TEXTING.
IF YOU THINK THAT LITTLE OF ME, GO TAKE A HIKE, DOUCHEBAG!
You send a text when you don’t want to talk to someone, but you want to let them know you’re thinking of them.
And what can be more flattering than conveying, electronically, the idea that you DON’T want to talk to the woman you’re courting?
