Somewhere along the lines of this great world of telecommunications, we discovered text messaging. At first it seemed like a grand design and it still is, but that's only when it's used properly. You see, some folks just don't know when to send a text and when to call, this is especially troublesome in relationships. If you send a text at the wrong time, it won't matter how sincere your intentions, it will blow up in your face! Fortunately for you, today, I'm going to identify a few appropriate times to text and when to call. You ready?
Before we dig into this cookie, you do understand the importance of all this don't you? I can't see you shaking your head, but I appreciate the feedback..lol You ever get one of those text that just pissed you off because you felt that it was charged with attitude and it ended up being totally the opposite? Well, if you have that's because, when we read text we interject our own emotional state into the words that we read.
Remember: Text messages do not convey as much emotion or inflection as the human voice. It's a lot harder to distinguish sarcasm from playful banter in texts than a phone call.
So When Should I Text?
Well, texting should only be used when it's a quick thought that can be exchanged in one or two lines. You know those funny moments that spur a curious conversation or serve as a quick "check-in". You don't want to get into anything too meaty like how you really felt about how he acted at the party or how she needs to wear clothes that cover all her assets.
And I understand that this can be a difficult task to manage with all the funny memes we share with one another, but somethings just shouldn't be texted. You have to use your best judgement and know the limits within your own unique relationship. If your unsure, just refrain from texting anything that is an emotional bullet. Those are always better as calls.
And When Do I Call?
Aside from the obvious reasons like dismemberment and incarceration(lol), you call when you want. Just make sure that when you get on the phone you have something worth listening too. Blabbing about how many points you scored on Candy Crush should have went straight to text if even that. What I'm talking about is when your about to send an emotional bullet that will instantly have bodies dropping on the other side of the phone.
You know those texts that have people filled to the gills with emotion, yeah, the good stuff. The "I'm fuck your whole day up with one text" messages. These are responsible for so much drama, heartache and unnecessary ugliness between two people that may have been able to work things out with a 5-10 minute phone call.
I personally have found that just stopping within a heated text session and picking up the phone is a great way to squelch a smoldering fire before it becomes a full blown inferno.
So What Now?
Well, now you proceed as normal, but with additional insight into the appropriate times to text and when to call your Sweetie. You see by reading this, you've taken an extra step to become a better communicator within your relationship. Now, if you really want your Babe on the same level, you could give them a chance to read this as well, unless you just want to keep this goodness all to yourself. It' purely up to you ^_^
As always, I appreciate you for taking a few moments to read these words, until the next time...
