Texting Found To Be Too Impersonal To Grow Relationships
Happy Valentine’s Day! On behalf of the entire TK Enterprises Inc. team, we’d like to wish all of you lovebirds a fun and exciting day today. We’d also like to send our best to all those who may not be celebrating Valentine’s Day as they are still looking for love. We do know one thing for sure, however. Those who are looking to impress the objects of their affection should practice the age-old technique of calling them on the phone.
Make the phone your friend.
If you’re lucky enough to get the phone number of an individual you admire, do yourself a favor and give him/her a call. Texting is wildly popular today. But it simply cannot communicate one’s tone, inflections and true personality the way his/her voice can. No matter how popular texting gets – and the concept has only gotten more popular with each new social media platform – it’s simply too impersonal to get a real relationship to grow out of it.
“Talking with someone is an art form,” says Los Angeles-based blogger Lauren on her website, “There is also an element of bravery when talking on the phone versus talking through texting because it takes a certain amount of guts to say certain things out loud to someone else instead of just texting. It honestly means so much more if someone actually picks up the phone to call because texting feels like such a cop-out since it’s so impersonal and you can also really get to know a person on a much deeper level if you talk on the phone or Skype with them over texting.”
Texting breaks up the natural pace of a conversation.
When on the phone, people speak back and forth to each other with immediate responses. With texting, it can be several minutes, hours or even days before a text recipient returns a message. While not necessarily intentional, these delayed responses could connote disinterest or irritation. It’s hard to truly know what the other person is thinking when texting is the main source of communication.
On MedicineNet.com, Randy Dotinga explains that there is research that has actually found that relationships can be negatively impacted by an abundance of texting. He reports that a 2013 survey of nearly 300 people aged 18 to 25 who were either married, engaged or seriously dating found that about four fifths of its respondents texted with their partners multiple times every day.
“The researchers found that both men and women were more likely to report less satisfying and less stable relationships when the men frequently texted their female partners,” he reveals.
