There might be people out there who enjoy getting these texts, but I don’t trust a single one of them. Hey you available, Hey, Hi, …………..
“Hey” by itself is a word, but nothing gets my heart pumping and my pores sweating like seeing those three letters alone in my inbox – /text – 99 percent of the time it leads to nothing, but you only have to have a bomb dropped on you once to never trust it again.
Unfortunately, some people forget that there are certain situations in life where a phone call would be more appropriate. example – like introducing yourself, booking appointment.
If you want to talk to someone, call. If you are texting someone because you’re bored, figure out something else to do.
It honestly means so much more if someone actually picks up the phone to call because texting feels like such a cop-out since it’s so impersonal and you can also really get to know a person on a much deeper level if you talk on the phone rather then over a text.
Don’t get me wrong, if we have met and we are setting up a date or simple just seeing how one or the other is doing – I love that!!!! I do not want to discourage some of our chats with those I know via text. I love to text when I may be too busy to deal with much, and do love the texting with those I have dated!!! I admire you fine gentlemen and ladies….
So call me “old fashioned” and “out of date,” but until I can actually feel a hug or a kiss through my phone, or see the look of a person gives me when they are setting up an appointment, I’ll take a real conversation any time. And although you cannot feel a hug or a kiss through a phone call, or see a person’s expression, their tone of voice, and the way they string words together means so much more than words on screen.
I don’t want to put in effort for a person who doesn’t want to put in too much effort to interact with me. It’s bad form.
If we’re going to meet, I want to see that you are serious about me…
Seriously. It’s not that hard to press “Dial.”
Wishing you all a fantastic week ahead…..
