That's why text messages become the main means of communication. And they're cheap. But when it comes to love ...
If you intend to use text messages as the only means of communication with your partner, do it the right way. Here are some of the experiences of both men and women about what they don't like when it comes to SMS wisdom.
Mark: 'Write whatever you want, but don't send me seven messages in a row. If you're so insistent, I won't answer, it means that I'm either busy or that I don't want to talk to you. You're just embarrassing yourself'.
Sally: 'I like correct grammar and spelling. It makes me happy. Spend five seconds to write a question letter by letter instead of sending me abbreviations because you hate to type. It just makes a bad day worse'.
George: 'Stop sending chain messages. We don't need to write to each other for hours. And the message doesn't have to contain more than a few words. I think all guys hate it when girls are trying to correspond without end'
Diane: 'Stop answering me in one word. If I waste my time explaining to you in a message that I had a bad day, and you answer me with 'too bad' it inspires me to end all contact immediately.'
Dwayne: 'Forget about chat. Texts are used to send information ... usually. Sex messages that will inspire me for the night when we see each other are one thing, but the ones like 'You're my little teddy bear' are not really something that turns me on.'
Anna: "Nothing turns me off as a guy who uses smileys. I guess you find me smart enough to believe that I can judge whether what you typed was happy or sad.'
