Calling all human beings who date: Texting as the go-to means of communication needs to stop!
There is definitely a time and place for texting, but I’m sorry – that time is not every moment of every day.
December 1992 marks the moment that everything changed, however.
In the first week of that month, a 22-year-old Vodaphone software engineer named Neil Papworth sent the world's first text message.
There are decided advantages to sending a text message.
They're brief and uncluttered, yet are still able to get the point across.
If you’re someone who loves the phone as much as I love my plush living room couch at the end of a long day, connecting on the phone is something you probably need – and there is nothing wrong with that.
At the start of a relationship, don’t be afraid to spell out how – and how often – you like to communicate. If so, say it and then wait to see if they can meet your needs.
Receiving a text when your date gets home to say he had a great time will help you fall asleep with a smile on your face.
Hearing the chime on your phone with a simple, "Sweet dreams" is an almost guarantee that you'll be dreaming about him.
What I don't get about texting is why people want to spend three minutes hunting, pecking and struggling to send a text when they could make a 30 second call and be done with it?
Texting is generally seen as a nuisance for people over the age of 40.
In a new relationship, texting can be both exciting and filled with anxiety.
