Texting is the life and death of all relationships. Whether it’s with a crush, your mother (who may not fully understand texting) or an awkward co-worker, texting interactions can go wrong at any time. I will be positive and say that sometimes texting can be helpful, almost pen pal like. But mostly, if you are sending a text past 10pm or under the influence of any alcohol, it has the possibility of going wrong. The texts below are texts you should not be sending out because you will ultimately regret it. These texts are also some of the ones I have received… and I can honestly say that the sender should regret them.
1. Are you up?
I hate this text because it’s not direct. It’s someone who is asking if you around to hang out but doesn’t have the class to just come out with it. Also, if it’s past10pm, no, I’m not up.
2. Are you mad at me?
No one should ever have to ask if someone is mad at them. This is not a kindergarten classroom.
3. I miss you.
Even if you really miss the person, do not send this. Also, don’t send this to a family member late at night or they get really worried about your mental state.
4. Do you think I’m pretty?
If you have to ask, you should spend the money you would spend on looks and go to therapy, because of course you are pretty. If you need instant gratification, you can go on a dating website.
5. Did you ever love me?
This really just screams “DO NOT DO!”
Although texting can really send someone into a shame spiral, it really is what holds our society together. I rarely talk on the phone and sometimes writing a long email is really just too much for me.
Luckily, technology is on our side and it’s pretty easy to make a fool out of yourself without speaking aloud… I mean, easy to stay in touch!
The new LG DoublePlay should be called the LG Double Trouble – two screens on one phone, with constant connection to social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and super easy access to group texting. That’s right, I said group texting, as in sending a message to multiple people at once, upping the chances that you’ll be issuing multiple apologies or avoiding multiple people the next day if you’re not careful. But what can I say, I like to live on the wild side.
