Current TV created a hilarious, spot-on how-to for navigating the path to love in today’s text-addicted culture.
Watching (and laughing) at this video got me thinking…While I do a fair amount of texting in general, compared to my circle of friends, I still believe in actual phone conversations. When it comes to romantic relationships – potential and real – I appreciate the actual effort that is made on my behalf to better establish real communication. True, I shoot off a ‘casual’ text to say hello or what’s up? but in this day and age, it’s too easy to get lazy and use the text in place of real conversation. We need to gauge the nature/status/level of our relationships with those we want to reach out to and ask, ‘Is a text more appropriate or a phone call?’ Too much texting with too little real talking, or sporadic and random texting is a bit confusing, and borders on frustrating. Who agrees with me?
