This text messaging thing is starting to grow on me
 
Although I have been skeptical of text messaging in the past, I am starting to realize that it can be a very useful tool in the early stages dating/trying to hook up with a chick. Some of the advantages of text messages are:
- The dialogue is short and sweet
- No awkwardness
- You can respond or not respond to a text messge at your leisure
- You can take your time coming up with something clever and flirtacious to say
- You can send a drunken text message with less danger of saying something stupid than with a phone call

Of course text messaging can become gratutious, but if used in moderation I think it can be a good thing. Chicks seem to really dig the late night night flirtacious text mesages.

Right, chicks only, a text reminds them you exist and gets them thinking about you.

Also when you are at work you can txt message people when you are bored. I did that all the time this summer.

Texting dudes isn't gay unless you are taking your time coming up with something clever and flirtacious to say.

lol are you guys really that insecure? here is a typical exchange with me and a buddy or bro..

me: xbox?
buddy: yah when
me: 8:00
buddy: k 8 is good.

OMG GAY! Sure beats making a call during work and making a call during my break.

Yeah, but what about multiple calls to a phone with caller ID without leaving a message?

text messaging is great for pranks too. got a new cell phone a month back, sent a text message to a friend of mine, she called in sick, i sat at her station

me: i sat on your chair, we are now one. hope you feel better soon.
her: who are you??
me: i'm the guy of your dreams, you just don't know it yet.
her: that's creepy, just plain creepy...

i call her to laugh and say IT'S ME! she answers then hangs up. she tells me about it at work the next day and i laugh and show her the msgs on my phone. i get bitch slapped in turn...

ya not sure why OOT seems so anti text-messaging.

Amoung my friends its much easier to get thigns planned.

Send one message to multiple users with a suggestion, receive a bunch of one words answers saying yes or no.

I generally hate text messaging because my phone doesn't fill in the words for me so it takes me forever to respond. most of the time i'd much rather the person just call me. That is, unless it is someone I don't want to talk to
