im a traditionalist. I didn't grow up with texting, since I was born in the early 90's before it became popular. texting, a form of letter, was invented originally for the hearing impaired. people caught onto it and now, even clothing companies like dolce and gabbana are making phones specifically for the function. its quick and easy, and not as nerve racking because some of us don't like how we sound (I do) so we tend to use it more often then actually calling. but what if there was an emergency and you couldn't text, you had to call, would you, or would you just try to find another way to text/send a message of some sort?
my point is, if you are truly too nervous/shy to talk on the phone, its ok that you are, cause we all get a little shy or nervous sometimes, but to not be able to talk on the phone at all is just wrong, imo.
my question is if I can't reach my crush by phone after a certain amount of times, am I supposed to resort to texting? or should I just leave it alone and move on?

I think you're supposed to leave it alone and move-on...because if I understand correctly, you've called her several times and she is not answering her phone?
For the record: I love text-messaging. Love it! I was late to catch onto the craze-I was late to catch onto the actual cell phone to begin with, really-but I am so hooked on the convenience, it's almost embarrassing. I've always hated talking on the phone...not because of disliking my voice or whatever, but just because its a nuisance to hold it to my ear for an entire conversation. With text-messaging, I can have a fairly long conversation without having to necessarily stop whatever else I'm doing...such as painting, walking the dog, or cooking. Plus, there is no pressure. You have time to think and respond. And you can send a hello message without bothering anyone-they check it and respond when it's a good time for them-win/win situation. I only wish more people felt comfortable with it...I always have to remember that most people don't like it and check myself from writing too much : /0
