I have such an odd aversion to texting. I just can’t do it. I just don’t know how or why I am supposed to like keep a conversation flowing via text because the conversation is either small talk that has no value and really shouldn’t be done or actual conversation that would be best done over the phone or something.
The only reason I will text someone usually is to update them where I am or ask how long until they arrive. Ya know, quick one-off updates. But I believe by being so weirdly anti-text I miss out on so many friendships and relationships with people that would take my textual silence as a sign that I don’t like them when in reality I’d love to call or skype them so I would know more about them then simple letters on a screen. I would love to call 98% of the people I follow on twitter so we could have a nice chat, but other people are too weirded out by phone calls just as I’m too weirded out by texting or DMing them asking how they are.
So much inner strUGHle
Exactly! Texting never seems to accomplish anything and if you actually want to talk to someone or achieve the information you’re looking for, calling them is always best. It just kind of sucks that these days, it can be hard to contact people any other way than texting…
