Gone are the days of actually talking on the phone, which can only mean one thing: Our way of daily communication has become text message central. Even research shows about 31% of Americans prefer texting to talking on the phone. And while some things are better left unsaid, some messages should be delivered in person. This is especially true for anything related to relationships.
When it comes to communicating with your partner, texting may only muddy the waters. So, as a rule of thumb, here are 10 things you should never send via blue bubble. You can thank us later.
1. “What are we?”
The defining the relationship talk is a necessity in any romantic relationship. If you’ve made it to the official boyfriend/girlfriend stage, you’ve probably had this conversation at some point. And hopefully, you had it in person because, as Glamour cautions, striking up a casual conversation about the status of your relationship over text isn’t the best idea. In fact, it just might be the worst.
