Zodiac Texting Habits

There are so many reasons to love texting, and choosing that way as a form of communication with someone special.

For starters, it's instant. It seems like the two of you are connected at that moment. That is as long as both of you are paying attention to your phone and ready to respond.

Long are the days when you have to phone someone and talk to them, now you can write out a text and press send. And you can tweak it an rewrite it until it’s perfect and is expressing exactly what it is you're trying to get across.

Sure, there are definitely some downsides to texting like the sense of false confidence that it can give you since you're not face to face with the person.

Some things have definitely been sent that were almost instantly regretted — maybe it was that risqué idea you had in the moment, or a fit of anger you let out through text. Either way, you wish you could take it back the second you pressed send.

Or it can turn out that people aren't who they say they are or seem to be from behind their screens. Kind of like false advertising.

Other then these couple downsides, for the most part, texting is great.
