Dating telephone calls
At the end of the day, a call is just more special.
Ryan, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Imago Therapist in Austin, Texas tells Bustle."The way I explain it to couples is that most intimate to least intimate communication ranks like this: 1) Face-to-face conversation, 2) Face Time, 3) Written letter, 4) Email, 5) Instant message or text."But texting is just so convenient, right?
Voice inflection also helps us understand the true message.
Written words, in the form of texting or emails, can be easily misunderstood.
"Although texting is quicker and more convenient, it may create a stale and monotone dialect between partners.
Instead of learning how your significant other responds emotionally to certain comments or questions, you are left knowing what they are saying and missing how they feel.
" This scenario happens almost weekly, and as much as I'd much rather have face-to-face communication than a string of abbreviations and emoji with someone I'm dating, I've also been the one looking for translations of my text conversations.
