The other night I was texting a girl I've been on a few dates with. It was pretty much a real time conversation by text but I generally find it frustrating to text for that long. I ended up just ringing her and speaking to her on the phone as it was both easier and seemed more meaningful. She acted surprised when I did it and made it a bit awkward. The next day I told a friend and he also thought I had done a strange thing. Why are people so addicted to texting? and what's wrong with picking up the phone and actually talking?

I'd rather text OR meet in person than to talk on the phone. I don't like talking on the phone that much. Probably because it comes all of a sudden when you're in the midst of doing something and you have to put everything down and attend to it. At least with texting, you can text and do other things you wanna do. And if you meet someone for a cup of coffee, you know you're setting aside a few hours to spend time with that person. I would rather give my full attention to someone (as in the case of meeting them face to face), or just text them and be able to do my own stuff, rather than talk on the phone...cuz that's just...difficult. Everytime I'm on the phone, I'm tempted to continue doing what I was doing, because seriously, how hard can it be to just listen and talk while doing the laundry? But man, when you do, chances are you're gonna get distracted and the person on the other line would be able to tell straight away and you'd appear rude and misunderstandings will prob occur, so in the end you dump whatever you were doing, and just sit/lie down and just talk.0
