Just a quick note--the average age of a first-year entry-level law student is older than 26 (it was about that 15 years ago actually, 27 to be exact in the US); today's entry-level JD student is much older than that, so perhaps you mean 46-plus? Ah, the profession: where else can one be turning 45 and still be considered a "young professional" -- most definitely has its benefits, I agree! All fun, etc. aside, I agree there's a tech-use/texting gap among the generations, but stats show that retirees are actually as wired as are the youth of today, meaning it's the working age crowd who aren't taking to texting as much, depending on one's industry/profession. Other factors such as one's culture, personality (let's call it the "shy" or "outgoing" factor) and also one's industry/experience come into play. Can't help but notice that many Scandinavians are quite shy for e.g., due to the lack of sunshine, etc. Given this, it comes as no surprise how quickly/readily those nations took up cell phones and then texting, etc. Hey, if it's how a guy gets over his shyness and works up the nerve to ask a girl out, whether here or over there, I see absolutely nothing wrong with it myself. As to the OP's text and the wedding-invitation questions: listen to Neo, guys. His is very good advice.

Simple. Overnight Fed-ex her one of those huge desk calendars complete with dates penciled in that detail every single interaction you'll have with her until the end of 2012. Don't get lazy as the months go by. We don't want to see things like "drinks", or "coffee" penciled in 6 months from now because you got lazy. Preferably, write something like November 22nd, 2012: "I tracked down your boss through one of your co-workers on facebook and he okayed lunch on this date. We'll be going to xyx on xyz street at noon".

Old people in this thread are lame. As someone said earlier, texting is far more disarming. Gives them time to think of their response, rather than just agree to a date because she didn't want to make things awkward. Her texting him back shows that she is at least interested. (But he's def an after thought and she was probably bored) OP what's the deal? Did you go out with her or what?

Regardless of what we think is lame, old or new, we all know girls want us to call them. For them its like they feel we're more interested. Anyone can type a text message, or chat via computer.

If she actually likes you, it doesn't matter if you text or call.

As a person who hates talking on the phone, especially to females I'm courting, texting is a god send. Allows me to spend 20 seconds where it may have taken 20 minutes before.

I suffered the consequences by calling a girl once. She was young and I should have known better.

I am a convert now; texting is the most approachable, neutral way to contact someone allowing more courtship to follow.

Don't ask her. Go to the wedding stag. Rake em up.

From a sociological perspective, the problem with texting vs. phoning is that texting is an inferior form of communication, just as talking on the phone is inferior to talking in person. A person's voice communicates a lot more than just what the words of a text message are saying. Even more so, when you speak with someone in person, you communicate much more through your body language than with just your voice. I'm not advocating asking a girl out in person, nor do I think it's wrong to ask a girl out by text. However, if you are looking for further clues and information about what a person is trying to communicate (and it appeared that the OP was), then using an inferior form of communication will hamper your ability to read into what a chick is really trying to communicate. For some, this is no big deal. For others, they are trying to gather as much info as possible. Choose your form of communication accordingly.

Someone who prefers I text them to arrange things isn't really a person I necessarily want to know. It is just so lazy and passive
