Stop the Texting People... - Page 7

post #91 of 101
I use texts for close friends when an immediate response is not required. If I need an answer right away or have important information to divulge that goes with a phone call.

Most of the women I have known prefer texts for some odd passive/aggressive reason, which I don't care for at all.

I got rid of my cell phone. I don't think I'll ever want one again.

Was recently told (via text) that I text like a college student. Not sure that's a good thing, but it was a hot redhead just out of college who told me, so no complaints. I text because the womenz text.

Even though I have a $600 phone with a full keyboard, I still don't get texts.

I like texting. It's not always convenient to talk.

+1, Texting can be much easier than getting into a discussion.

Sometimes you only need a brief response and a phone call isn't necessary Sometimes it's not convenient to speak on the phone. I know i don't like to do so in public that much (bus, train, etc...) Often myself or a friend will want to give quick impressions or share an anecdote or sighting that doesn't actually need an immediate response or a response at all. For a significant other or one you're "seeing" it's a nice way of staying in touch with them or letting eachother know you're thinking about the other. Doesn't have to be sappy but can be "just found this great bakery we should check out one of these days" or something like that. I agree that some people take it too far. However, some people have those fancy typing phones where it's basically just a mobile email or Instant Message chat client that people use on their personal computers. Still, being "against texts" on some moral or old fashioned ground is silly. They are useful at times and some people of course take it to an excess. The same can be said for actual talking on the phone though.

All of these reasons are ... well ... quite reasonable. I can't believe I'm saying this ... but perhaps it is in my interest to take up texting and join the 21c.
