Texting

Remember when people actually called each other? Before IPhones and texting you actually had to be home in order to talk to someone. Today things are much more convenient, but also much more annoying. We are never truly alone anymore. Cell phones connect everyone with each other 24/7. It's nice to have that access when you want an ambulance or need a ride home from the bars, but there is such a thing as TOO much contact. Texting your guy/girl ten times a day to say things like, "LOL my coffee is good today!" or "Ugh my boss sucks!" can lead to texting overdose. You mate doesn't need to hear all the details of your day play-by-play. It takes the mystery away from the lovely moment at the end of the day when you haven't seen your partner all day and you fill each other in on what you both have been up to. Plus, no one really needs to know how good your breakfast burrito was or how you're stoked about getting off work soon. It's like twitter or Facebook- too much contact is just plain too much. Keep the mystery and spark in your relationship by limiting your texts to the occasional "I love you" or "Can't wait to see you tonight sexy." And don't neglect the old-fashioned phone call. Because nothing is better than hearing the voice of the person you love, as opposed to the "ding-ding" of your smart phone.
