Think about it-just 20 years ago, people didn't even use cellphones. I'm dating a guy who barely texts me but when we're in person he's awesome. We have been away from each other for the summer so I get aggravated when he doesn't text me for a while and it makes me feel like he's lost interest but then I'm like what would we have done 30 years ago? Just called each other once in a while? I don't know I think people get too into texting being a fundamental part of a relationship including myself lol do you agree?

People had cellphones 20 years ago! They had them 30 years ago.
Texting is great because it means you don't have to have a whole conversation, you can ask a question or give information and that's it.
Texting is annoying because it's seen as so quick and easy, people who don't do it a lot are seen as lazy or not committed or uninterested.
Text is great because it's much more discrete than a call. There's no need to respond immediately either.
Text is annoying because a continued conversation takes much longer than a spoken one, and interferes more because you have to keep stopping what you're doing to pick up the phone and type a response.
I seldom use my phone to make actual calls. It's all texts with virtually everyone I know.0

Yes, I agree. We all get easily worried if the other person doesn't text, but what really counts is the time together and how you're treated by the other person in general. In some cases, not receiving texts from your SO may mean something... but in those cases you can also see something is wrong when you're together, so...1
