Does anyone text much? I text a fair bit, but unfortunately most of the conversations are one-sided.

I actually don't only send about 10 or so messages a month.

I went through a phase of texting a few people, but I don't text so much any more. I talk to most people on Facebook, and I used to have a man who used to text me a lot (he doesn't go on Facebook), but he stopped a couple of months ago, because he's got a bit moody that I didn't go out with him.

Nope, mainly because my phone is rarely, if ever, charged :lol:

I would usually avoid texting because it would take a very long time to decide what to say...and the constant editing and anxiety about saying the wrong things 8O

Oh texting, how I hate thee! But unfortunately I do text pretty frequently, not necessarily because I want to but because it's almost a requirement to communicate with people nowadays. I'm pretty sure it'll give me carpel tunnel in a few years.

I text because some auditory processing issues make it kind of hard to talk on the phone and have an effective conversation.

I only text in reply to texts I've gotten. It always seems to take so many words to say what I want to say and not have a huge risk of being misinterpreted.

I'd text if I had someone to send texts to :lol: I prefer it over calling someone when it's just some simple question. It sucks to not get feedback right away though.

I text all of 3 people. But we talk a lot. My girlfriend, brother, and mom. I really hate talking on the phone. It's so awkward and I never know when it's my turn to talk.

Texting is my preferred method of communication. I text people too much sometimes!
