And yes, I have had this sort of thing happen all of the time when a girl will insist on texting me instead of hanging out in person. And you know
what happened to everyone that used to text me? They disowned me - humans have been developing verbal and body language communication skills for
millennia - texting is a joke.
For one, the two of you are never really apart. For another, if she doesn't want to respond to you about something important or is lying to you, all
she has to do is not text you back. For another, if she isn't willing to hang out in person, you are basically talking to your cell phone. Let's not
forget that by not having access to her body language, your text messages could be misinterpreted, or you might say something that you wouldn't have
In short, I would use texting for things like "When are you free?" and "Want to get coffee at noon and hang out later tonight" only. Refuse to
communicate with your next girlfriend unless it is in person or on the phone otherwise.
This could be helped by finding a girl in the physical world, and not the digital world as well -
There is only one person that I can text and have a coherent, meaningful conversation with and that is my friend Griffin whom I have known for half a
decade. We lived together before, and we have spent countless hours hanging out in person.
Everyone else thinks that they can get away with texting as a main form of friendship, but their texts are lame, like "Idk" and "maybe" and "cool"
without any substance to them.
If your girlfriend can't hold a conversation or have anything meaningful to say, it might totally be time to move on as well. Think of it like a
friendship - I mean seriously. Girls are people, too.
Is this someone you would want to spend your time with if they were a guy? Or are you bored out of your wits every time you hang out with her but put
up with it because she's a girl? If your answer is the second one, then you need to dump her once again and try to learn how to approach the next girl
