Guy goes out on a pseudo date with a girl- maybe it was a date, maybe it was a friendship thing, it was unclear. They go to dinner, drinks, a fun time had by both.

Next day, girl wants to say thank you, after all that's the polite thing to do.

So.... the question--- text message or phone call?

Let's evaluate.... text message- it gets the job done but in a passive more girl-like way; phone message- a possibility but a little more forward, a little more guy like behaviour.

I vote for the text message however, some guys have been saying otherwise.



  1. The only thing worse than a text message would be a form letter. Lately, I've been hearing a lot about women who dig using the text message thing. I don't get. It's pretty impersonal. It's like having a toaster say, "I love you". Run for cover.

  2. I think text messages are fine...lets just say 'any message' is okay really, isnt it? I think the good thing about the text is allows a little 'distance' without any chance of 'early interrogation'...which could put strain on things atthis early stage...

  3. I don't think texting is either more girl or guy-like...my thought is that texting is the cop out. Non-committal. If the date was just ok, text; but if there is any hope for a round two, phone call.

    Now, whether we think men are more non-committal than women is an entirely different subject!

  4. Text is polite but a phone call indicates further interest. So if you are not too sure bout the chemistry, text. But if there's fireworks and you are really interested, call.

  5. I like texts. Even for guys. It gives a bit of distance but acknowledges the date was had. But then, I'm just dealing with the fallout from a bad date and am only too glad for it to be happening via text.

  6. You are correct in a way however there is very little difference between Admin and Super Admin and the user name and password that peter has is the mater username and pass i.e for the Webstats, FTP, MySQL etc hence access to the core files. However this does not mean that you did defiantly change the files, it could of been someone on my side. There were some software updates made to the website which made a compatibility issue between the CMS and Shopping Cart, this issue is very new and I just assumed since Peter mentioned that he wanted the website updated that someone on your side might of tried. It is not often that anyone I work with will work on one of my sites but not impossible.
    Bottom line, there are to many issues on the website I need to do a clean install and rework the website.\
