    how much texting is too much when you first meet someone?

    should one not do it very much or is texting throughout the day acceptable?

    I texted a girl like every other day, had her flake out on me twice, and only talked with her on the phone like once over the course of three weeks and she still ended up meeting up with me.

    There really is no rule here. Every girl is different and you have to feel out the vibe for yourself to see what works for you.

    Why wouldn't you just pick up the phone and call at that point?

    Wait a sec....why do you care if this is the girl you fucked the first night and don't want to consider seriously dating her?

    new girl

    i went from 600-800 texts too/from in a month from daily everyday use to 2700 too/from after is started dating this new girl.

    50 buck charge on my account. had to sign up for unlimited for an extra 5 bucks to get the 50 dollar charge off my account.

    i actually called and bitched about it before i checked online the amount of texts i had to certain numbers....

    1 number for 75% of that.

    it didn't last...she was not worth it for other reasons....

    Sure I do...

    To be honest, I had no clue I was texting that much. I don't consider 600-800 all that much, but I signed up for 1500 texts and was sure that I wasn't even close to exceeding that.

    I have 400 minutes anytime talking and I spend maybe 200 of that a month. I've got a shit-ton of roll over minutes.

    I use my phone very little for work - and most of my phone calls occur after 9pm and on the weekends.

    Holy fuck my life :rofl:

    I wish I had a camera to take a picture of my text logs on my phone/counter :o.

    Girl im seeing at work, works int he same building, and although we have company communicator (chat program), its monitored so we text back and forth all day. Continues on through the night as well. But this also isnt a 'new' contact, this is someone i have been going out w/ 'regularly' recently I guess.

    In general, I DONT use my phone. I have 1000 when ever minutes and I use about ~100 a month

    I posted this somewhere yesterday, but I deleted ALL my text messages on Christmas day. Yesterday I check and my TOTAL in/out texts were at 9,988

    its 11 and I've been texting sense like 9 and already have like 50 texts. I text while at work because I can't sit there and chat on the phone. Plus when your busy its easier to just text when you have a minute than to sit there on the phone putting people on hold all the time.

    I love it tho, it's WAY better than having to talk on the phone, which has the following problems:

    1. You eventually run out of things to talk about (and then the woman will wonder "what's wrong?" and get all weird when you no longer have those 3 hour convos that you used to)

    2. You have to set aside specific time to talk and cannot talk outside of that time

    3. You can't do anything else while talking on the phone

    haha this reminds me of the last girl I talked to. Initially I had 100 text limit per month. Started talking to her and with in a two week period I upgraded to 250. Next day up to 500. Couple of days later to 1000. Week later 1500 and then onto unlimited so I wouldn't go over.

    Then things went to shit and I went from unlimited --> 1500 --> 1000 --> 500 and now I'm back to 100 :rofl: :hs:

    Anyway I think you're overdoing it when you guys actually get together and have nothing to talk about because it got dispersed over text.

    I was an ANTI-texter for the longest time. It was actually a big big issue in my last relationship for me. But what I've come to realize it that it really has to do with the context, and the person with whom you text with.

    I agree that if you have a decent phone conversation and person to person interaction, or video-chat :)hsugh:), texting isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    If you ONLY chat to communicate, and its preferred over actual talking most of the time, then yeah, kinda sketch.

    NOW, I'm a texting maniac...but my kid is part to blame for that phenomenon. She only JUST got a cell phone like a month ago so, we communicate a lot that way. I only just got an iPhone around the same time and thus my ability to text photos and vids became something new and novel for me cus it wasn't part of my prev plan....I enjoy sharing photos that represent whats going on it my life when I can't share it in person (as in LDR).

    Today was a lot of back and forth about a situation going on here in the building. Last thing either of us need is having exec's/higher ups seeing our opinion about some of the people in this building ya know? lol.

    And its more like an IM conversation than it is a text

    I easily send 600 (so total would be roughly 1200 because of responses) to him a day.

    So accidentally leave your phone sitting somewhere and have someone see a log of your texts. You're fucked.

    This is exactly why I prefer voice conversations. How is it that people think calling someone on the phone automatically means a big long ordeal of a conversation?

    I'm king of the 1-2 minute phone call: "Hey, want to hear a good one? So this blonde meets up with these 5 black guys.... :mamoru: .... thought you'd get a kick out of that. Talk to you later!"

    There's no written record anywhere of what was said that way, and it's not THAT hard to find a place where you can be not overheard if need be.
