Someone tried to have a relationship with me via text. He didn't want to talk by phone apparently--just kept saying he would call, and then texting.


I ignored him. I think he must have been married.

Just say "No!" to textual relationships, ladies!! Be strong! LOL


You're singing my song Dawn. Because how can you have a conversation of value and real context when you're typing in shorthand with a character limit?


Texting is a cop out for lazy daters. It's a way to remain aloof, anonymous and non commital in early dating relationships.

i think texting as the start of communication is so passive aggressive! almost like he's not even going to put a real effort into it from the beginning...which is probably why he's trolling internet dating sites. it's one thing to utilize texting with friends and established SO's as a quick way to touch base during the day, but quite another to make initial contact (outside email) and/or set up dates, etc. He's putting the ball in your court and that's a sign of future laziness-sorry to be so cut and dry, ladies, but I think 9 times out of 10 this is true!! I'm sure one of you has a success story out there where your guy sent you a text and you called or text back and now you're skipping off into the sunset, but the rest of us, if completely honest, would say that if we're recieving texts from the start, we're the one's making the efforts from there on out.

My opinion is that texting is less intrusive than calling because the other person doesn't have to respond right away if they are busy. I usually text my DD who's in college cause I can never remember her class schedule or I don't know if she's studying or w/ friends. But I don't think it should be a substitute for calling. I get pretty tired of more than a few texts cause my phone doesn't have a full keyboard.

Couple of things come to my mind.....texting is ok, but before meeting him, talk on the phone first.

First of all, blaming the holidays is so lame.

I always think it's weird when a guy texts before he has spoken to you on the phone. I don't know why, maybe because I think a text is more intrusive since you can get them 24/7, and a call would mean the other person has to be CONSIDERATE of YOUR time and YOUR availability to talk. Texting after you talk, is OK, but I do know that some people use it as their major form of communication, but I find it very childish.

I agree with everyone else... let him know you prefer talking on the phone instead of texting.
