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!

I don't even own an ear dildo and really do hate the blasted things with a passion (well I do have a throw away Tracfone for emergencies that I never use and have to remind myself to charge the battery from time to time). I have never sent a single text message in my whole life. Don't you just hate it when you go walking along and encounter one person after another with their heads buried in one of those contraptions. It makes meeting people worse than next to impossible.

Hear, hear... I used to work at a large government radar where they installed a very loud phone ringer right above the computer terminal where I often worked after the Ops crew missed a few phone calls due to a high noise level in that room. When that ringer went off, it would send shudders and shock waves through my whole body until somebody answered it. Then it still took me a minute or two to recover afterwards.
