One of the most popular questions I get is about texting. When should you do it? When should you not do it? I think this chart just about sums it up.
Personally, I think texting is great for sweet nothings during the day, to tell someone you’re running late, to ask for directions, or when you’re in a meeting and too busy to talk. Otherwise, as a means of communication, it SUCKS. There should never ever ever be a meaningful conversation that takes place via text. And if you disagree, don’t get mad at me when your boyfriend breaks up with you via text.

"Dale and I have been together for two and a half years and will be married in 3 months."
You provide a reality check and remind me that everyone has doubts and there is no one "normal" response to love and commitment. I think your insight and perspective is incredibly accurate - you seem to understand the plight/perspective of the working, successful urban woman over 30.
"I feel very fortunate that I gave him a chance and that he's in my life. The best part is that there is NO DRAMA!"
“Why He Disappeared” made me feel like I was in control of my love life and that it was not in control of me. Now I'm VERY happy with myself and my relationship. I can relax and not stress about the future, I'm enjoying the here and now and its so much FUN!
"I have met a man I can only describe as practically perfect."
Evan's info gave me the understanding that if a guy is interested in you, he will want to be with you, he will call when he says he will call, he will make sure he arranges time to spend with you.
“Without your help, I never could have imagined that I could be in a relationship like this one.”
I'm in my 60's and expected that I would not have a committed relationship again. I'm still dealing with issues internally of fear and past experiences, as is he. But we can talk about these things and know that we have something special.
"Give the guy a chance to prove he might have what you need for a satisfying relationship."
I am a firm believer in dating at least 4 seasons and we are already in our 3rd season of love. We have discussed marriage and will revisit the idea this October.
