Have you ever been in a circumstance where you literally don't utter one verbal word to a person with whom you are going on a date until you see them live on the date??
Here's what I know...
(1)Texting is meant to supplement calls and dates, not replace them.
(2)If you met someone and you are planning to take them out, you need to log in a call, even for 5 minutes just to say hello before the date.
(3)Regardless of how busy you think you are, you are no busier than anyone else out there; if they have time to talk to you, you should have time to talk to them.
(4)There is no substitute for verbal banter.
(5)Girls assume that if you really like them, you would find time to pick up the phone and call. Hence, if you really do like them, you are doing yourself a disservice by not calling.
(6)People find text abbreviations annoying and hard to understand. Old fashioned chatting from time to time just might be easier.
