Hold the Phone: Texting is the Dating Norm

Don’t Call, Text Me is better For Couples

The oldie but goodie song titled, “I Just Called to Say I Love You” is a classic in more ways than one. An article in the USA Today states that more couples text each other these days then bother with dialing the phone and making a call! Starting and maintaining relationships is commonly done via SMS texting these days.

Texting has changed the way relationships work in a lot of ways. Jefferson Graham who polled readers and staffers for the USA Today article and came up with some very surprising facts and figures with three simple questions he asked. Here are the questions:

1.) Would you call it quits via text?

2.) How often are you spending the day texting your significant other?

3.) What would happen to your relationship if you didn’t?

His results declared that texts are a huge part of relationships and romance. For both long distance and short distance romances, there are 20 texts or emails exchanges daily. Texting seems to be a staple in order to keep the romance alive!

Texting is also a way people get in to a relationship. Alicia Comanda, one of those polled, said that texting is much more appropriate than calling:

“If I were ever to give a guy my number after meeting after a night out or through friends, he would text me,” said Comanda. “I could not imagine a man calling me to chat.”

 Texting is just easier!

But as much as it is easier to break the ice and start up a conversation via the cell phone, it is also easier for some to end it that way too.

No matter if you are for or against having text messages be a part of your relationship, the process is firmly here to stay. Sending a text is faster than a phone conversation and it is more convenient than an email message in most cases.  So your best bet is to learn how to text with the best of them and be goor at how you do it.

Dumping via Text Happens One out of Every Ten Times

Breaking Up Isn’t Hard to Do With Texting


Was your last relationship ended with the latest technology through your phone? If you are like ten percent of Americans, then there is a good chance you have been dumped via a text message, according to a recent study conducted.

The Daily Mail claims one out of every ten people are let go from a relationship in a cowardly way – the text. It’s bad enough to feel embarrassed over doing it in person, but when they can’t even face you to do it – that’s low! is a site that recently conducted their own survey and found out that of the 2,000 people surveyed, texting plays a large part in setting up and tearing apart relationships.

For the person who thinks ten percent is just a tiny number and scoff at it, imagine how many were dumped remotely just 20 years ago. None! That makes a ten percent growth very large. And if you factor in the world population of ten percent, you could suddenly have 67 million people looking for a text messages that says “it’s not you, it’s me”.


Another survey asked people about flirting inappropriately via text messages. One out of four admits to improper flirting. And the survey goes on to say that one of three people read the messages on their significant other’s phones. But the messages must not be all that bad because only one in ten remembers to delete them before a partner could get to them.

Sometimes sending a dump text is quicker than playing a game of Words With Friends. But the majority of people still choose to dump in person, over dinner or even a drink. 90% of folks have to sit through the embarrassment across the dinner table and finish eating with pride over a breakup. Hopefully cell phone companies won’t add break up messages as a part of their quick reply services!
