Your Phone, Your Foe?
Texting is quick and easy. Partners can text quick love bites to each other, or they can have heated arguments. The good news is that you can always double check your words before you send them. But once you send them, they can’t be taken back. With that in mind, here are seven texts you should never send your partner. You’ve been warned….
Do you feel like you and your partner aren’t communicating well these days? Get a love reading and let one of our psychics help you fix things!
1. “I Love You.”/“Can’t Wait.”
In this instance, it’s not the words that are problematic; it’s the punctuation. Researchers at Binghamton University have concluded that periods make the texter seem less enthusiastic. They suggest that it is better to end a sentence with an exclamation point (to show excitement), or a question mark (to show interest).
These are acceptable texts—if you have been together for a while. But if you’re in a new relationship, they come off as a bit lazy. A budding relationship is an exciting and sexy time, but there is nothing exciting or sexy about texts consisting of a few letters or half words. If you put more effort into your texts, it will pay off in the long run.
3. “I Want to Tell You Something I’ve Never Told Anyone.”
Sharing intimate details about yourself with your partner creates a strong bond. However, I think it’s better to share these details when you are physically with your partner and not over text. If you can get together in person, share the intimate details then.
4. “I Know You’re There!”
This is the text equivalent to the girl who used to pound on my dorm room door for hours before falling asleep in front of it. This is really just a desperate text, so don’t send it. If you text someone and they don’t text you back in a reasonable amount of time, just move on. They’re not worth getting mad over.
5. “So Now I’m Eating My Peas One at a Time.”
Some things don’t need to be shared—even between the closest partners. Whether it’s a list of all the ingredients in your salad at lunch, or how many times you went to the bathroom, it’s better to keep a little mystery. You and your partner don’t need to be digitally joined at the hip to make your relationship work.
6. “I Never Got Your Text.”
Texts rarely get lost. If you’re using a lost text as an excuse to not respond to your partner, know that your relationship has an honesty problem. Think about why you’re choosing to ignore them. Is it a power play, or are you just not interested? There is no easy way to break up with someone, but it is kinder to do it sooner rather than later.
7. “We’re Over. Goodbye and Good Luck.”
If you want to break up with your partner, don’t do it over text. It’s just tacky and it makes you look like a coward. You may think a text breakup prevents a huge public scene, but chances are, your partner is going to call you and give you a piece of their mind. Give them the respect they deserve and do a face-to-face breakup.
