Our Love-Hate Relationship With Texting


Our Love-Hate Relationship With Texting
How is cell phone texting working for you? Is it a benefit? Or is it causing relationship issues?

What’s my advice to men who like to use texting as a main form of communication but then experience anger and frustration from the women in their life? It would be this—use texting (1) to send women short informative messages (running late, need anything from the store) and also (2) to let them know you're thinking about them. For example, "just thought of you and it made me smile" or "looking forward to seeing you tonight."  Letting women know you're thinking about them makes them feel cared for, and it can also become an aphrodisiac. In this way, texting can become a form of foreplay without actually becoming "sexting."  When women feel cared for by a man, they generally become more attracted to him.

How do you feel about texting? Have you found an effective way to convey how you're feeling when you're texting? Have you found texting to be a love-hate relationship where you experience more hate than love?
