Text, Text, Text

Texting, the new way to ruin communication skills and relationships with the un-emotional click of send.

Texting is a way to take you out of reality, but make you think that you are actually there. It is a way to pretend that you are what ever you want to be to anyone in your life.

Lets begin with what happened to actual phone calls and face to face communication? It vanished and dissappeared off the face of the planet. Some people still communicate very well face to face and are fashioned in their social skills. I talk with people all day long, ponder and ask myself if they even made it through the fourth grade. Sometimes I feel like slapping myself in the head, because of the idiots I have to listen to all day long. So what, you can polish your nails and text while driving 90 down the highway, I really don't give a shit.

It's these social skills that make us all different and engage our thought process, and give us emotion. With computer mediated communication on the rise, it allows all of our independent thoughts, our history, our feelings, and our differences to be buried in the backyard without a map. These addictions to communicate by text take away from the, used to be everyday, casual conversation at the coffee shop, and make way for the individualistic society to emerge, the me me me world is the revolution. No one wants to take the time to have an actual conversation face to face anymore, it takes too much time. Texting will make the world a dumber place and inept to the fluctuation of life and the enjoyment of someones spoken word. I think that you should have to pass verbal and communication skills test before you can text non-stop, because most of you who text all the time and that is your most productive way of communicating, suck at intelligently carrying on an actual conversation, and need to shut up.

Next, Texting as lifes easy cheating tool. As if the divorce rate were not high enough, now we have new tools and new ways that disable the eye contact of many relationships throughout the world. Now you don't have to look your love in the eye and tell her you were in a meeting when you were really knocking the neighbor lady up. You can text your wife, and what will she say, oh ok.

Reality for relationships is that its too easy now days, its not really lying when you text something untrue, your just writing a story for someone to read, that someone just happens to be your husband or wife, boyfriend or girlfriend, but who cares, you dont have to deal with saying it to his or her face and there is no emotion involved. You dont see the glow or smile in someones face when you tell them you love them, its just typed, woo hoo.

Texting is as easy as 123 and the bastard who invented it should have the shit slapped out of him every now and then. Im not saying that everyone who texts is a cheater, Im just implying that it makes it soooo much easier. Why have a conscience, you dont need one, just type whatever you want someone to hear and it magically becomes your life story and everyone believes it. You can become anyone you want while your texting, even as I define "a piece of shit human being".

Texting pushes the thought process in your head to think, hey I can actually get away with this, because I dont have to physically talk to my partner, I can text him or her whatever they want to hear or that your out with the guys or girls, and your partner believes every word, too easy.

Texting has stolen the emotion out of relationships, now you can work or pretend to work 14 hours a day and sleep with the intern and no one knows the difference. Lifes new technology has become prostitute row for both men and women, you just don't get paid for it. Im suprised they havent came out with a phone you can enjoy a dinner with and screw, thats probably in the works.

Relationships are drowning, and what needs to be brought back is time and patience and trust, it doesnt seem anyone wants to spend time with a person, they are in such a hurry, and enjoy what they dont call lying, because its not a lie unless its face to face. For those that are text cheaters and relationship frauds, you should have your lower belongings removed, sorry trying to keep it a little clean. You are worthless to society as a whole, and don't deserve anyone.

I hate texting, there are times I am glad for the technology, because I am in the military and away from my wife, and there are times we can't talk on the phone. I trust my wife with everything in my life, and love her very much.

These are not edited, these are just rants, complaints, and fits about stuff I see and hear on a day to day basis. I hope you enjoy.... Thanks.


  1. Very interesting. You would like to also read an article that I read lately about the new social media and how it influnces "flirting" and changes the boundaries of "cheating. In my opinion, it doens't matter how you say it (face-to-face, vie YouTube, or via facebook) cheating is cheating. Stepping "too close to the line" is "stepping too close to the line." Dana and I have definite definitions of cheating and they are the same (thank goodness) but I think that others would think that our definitons are too strict. Either way, if I find the article then I will send you the link.

    Ta ta for now

  2. Here's the article.
    I love the example about the "work spouse."
