Speaking of Texts… I don’t sext, I don’t flirt text and don’t get me started on booty texts

Wow, I loved the comments from yesterday’s post. Sorry I haven’t had the chance to reply.  Can I blame the rain?

I know that some people really like texting as a form of communication.  And hey, I get it.  It’s super-convenient. I just don’t think it’s the most effective means of communicating between two people who are dating and trying to get to know one another.   And considering the response on twitter and here on the blog, there seem to be a lot of people who agree with me.

Anyway, I just wanted to mention a few more related things, as long as we’re on the topic. Call this a mini-.

  • I don’t .  Ever.  Just typing that word makes me giggle, in fact.  I have been known to take and email naughty (but still anonymous/so leaving my face out) pics to boyfriends who are out of town.  ’cause I’m cool like that.  And I’ll have a steamy phone call.  Or two.  But sexting – ick.  I don’t get it.
  • I also won’t use texting to flirt. Call me crazy, but I see this as the fast food equivalence of flirting. And I don’t eat McDonalds.
  • If a guy is dumb enough to me (this has actually happened with 3 different guys in recent memory) I will not only NOT RESPOND but I will likely hold it against him for a long, long time.  Just don’t.

Words. Language. Communication. It actually matters. At least to me. Don’t try to text your way into my heart (or bed).  And it seems like I’m not the only one who feels that way.

    Did you get a chance to read my post on this subject called, “Sub-texting: when a guy texts you, what’s he really trying to say?” I agree- why can’t they just cut to it, why all the lame posturing?

    I love sexting and have found most of the gals I date like it too. Maybe it’s a generational thing. However, there is definitely an art too it. Just sending “what’ up?” or doesn’t cut it.
