Do you prefer texting or making a phone called?
Teaching my mother to text was so hard.. I agree with her, she told me to drop a line or two sometime.. so what do you prefer texting versus calling
It depends on who you'll contact and it's purpose. If you need to relay a crucial message,calling is a must. Texting is best used for informal communication and when you are in a very noisy environment where hearing someone over the phone is impossible.
I've never liked phones, going all the way back to the basic black, Bakelite blunt instrument with the straight paper-and-cloth insulated cord. Don't really care for cell phones much better. I will text over calling every time.
It depends on whom I am contacting. I don't text, and I don't make many calls-- but I do like email because it gives people a chance to reply when it is convenient, and I have a copy of their reply.
For two of my friends, texting. For everyone else, I prefer a phone call.
I hate texting.
The person I need to communicate with the most is my 19-year-old daughter who is in college. She turns the calls off on her IPhone (that I'm paying for) and communicates mostly via text. We end up exchanging 5 text messages when one phone call could have resolved whatever the issue is.
I guess you could say, I'm old school. I'd much rather make a phone call then press buttons on my phone to send a text.
However if I am online using my laptop and happen to see one of my email contacts or a friend in Facebook is online I might instant message/chat every now and then. It's also easier to use the key boad on laptop than on a phone for me.
For me, it would be a phone call. I like direct interactions with another warm body instead of the techno middleman called “a phone”, used to text others. I like machines, but when it comes to talking to people, I want to talk to people.
Texting I have found is impersonal and I get offended now if a friend always texts and doesn't call...means to me they aren't taking time out for you. Plus, we are missing the interactions with people and the interpersonal communication skills that go with it. I prefer making phone calls if there are things to talk about. Texting is easy and fun for random thoughts and jokes and stuff like that

Do you think it's okay to break up with someone by texting or by email?It used to be the 'rule' that you broke up with a boyfriend or girlfriend in person, out of respect for the relationship you once had. Now, however, people also break up by phone, through email or even by texting. What do...
