  • If you are going to text for 30 minutes straight then you might as well just call the person

  • its alright if it isn't an important topic

    and I could go on for as long as possible

    but if its an important topic I will NOT have the conversation over text

    i'd rather wait then conversate via text for the important topic

  • It depends on who I'm texting. I've had conversations with friends for hours, just texting back and forth when we're both cooking dinner and watching a movie type of thing. But then I get really frustrated when I'm texting somebody who I see regularly. When I was dating this guy, he HAD to text me every day and wanted to know EVERYTHING I did, or was doing. It made me crazy. I saw him often enough that I shouldn't have to text everything I do.

  • Me and the guy I am seeing pretty much text throughout the entire day, every day. We live about an hour away from each other so the texting cuts down on long distance charges. With that said though, there are often really large gaps in between when we are at work or just busy doing other things.

  • i hate them, but I don't avoid them. I answer most of the time because I feel bad if I dont. I try not to have too many back and forths because it's really annoying, but a quick txt here and there is fine.

    convos = never.

    how the heck are you supposed to have a real conversation over txts?

  • I'm not big on long, drawn out text conversations. A short conversation's good, but it just gets annoying after a while. I'd prefer talking on the phone for a long conversation.

  • I voted D

    I love texting.. I can't stand talking on the phone - Unless it's important or an emergency.
