Talking... things get screwed up otherwise... especially with an SO or whatever.0
Talking because texting means they don't respond right away.
It's also a lot more intimate than a written message since you can tell what a person means by their tone of voice instead of having text message confusion.
i prefer to text. i find i have the courage to say more things over text. plus, i like it because you have more freedom to do things. if you are watching tv or something, it is easier to text because you can focus on the tv and the phone at the same time. plus, texting has emojis, they are a lot more fun than talking on the phone
talking on the phone.
I hate texting cuz you lose comedic timing and delivery and inflection in your voice making it emotionless. hence all the emoticons.
I like texting. I don't want people around me to know my business. Plus I could be in the middle of something and then I'd have to stop what I'm doing to talk to the person on the phone.
Talking on the phone > texting. I do like texting, but I'd rather talk to the person on the phone if they are people I know well enough or am very close to. When I type things too fast there will be too many typos and being a perfectionist myself, I cannot tolerate myself making mistakes.
Also, it's because some of my friends don't really use emojis except for some rare occasions. I find it hard to notice if the person's tone of speaking is happy/sad/stressed/angry or whatever. By talking on the phone, even if they lie and say they're fine I could guess it immediately if they really are.
So yeah, all in all I'd rather talk on the phone. Unless the person is not close with me then I'd just rather text them.
I prefer talking on the phone! I'm not really good at texting. I get bored easily anyway, and my fingers hurts if I try to write at a fast speed O_O
It also creates misunderstanding sometimes because some of my friends doesn't use 'lol' or any emojis except smiling one. So, even when they're joking it's kind of hard to tell. It's confusing.
Besides, talking on the phone call is more fun. I get to hear their voice. When they say I'm fine, at least I can tell from their tone if they really are fine or if they are bit stressed (unlike texting). I like listening to their voice, and laugh. Talking on the phone makes me feel more closer, connected to a person. Plus, it's a time saver, lol.
