i dont really understand whats wrong with texting i dont think someone will just text someone they dont know and if they would they would also pick up the phone……..February 23, 2011 2:20 am at 2:20 am #745295yentingyentaParticipant
I’m a teen (but almost not) and i can say, txting is addicting. even txting friends and whatever, its very easy to exchange 100 txts a day, and thats just with one person!! B”H for unlimited txting plans.
as long as the txts are appropriate, not containing L”H, or inappropriate exchanges between girls and boys, why not? if it were not for txting, i would have NO social life.
the one negative thing that i got from txting is that e/t gets abbreviated. there’s not enough room in the message to write it out whole.February 23, 2011 2:29 am at 2:29 am #745296
texting is really useful if someone is unavailable and need to ask someone something u can just text without starting longconversations that u cant put down and i dont abbrevaite so that is a plus i spell out everything (basically)February 23, 2011 2:30 am at 2:30 am #745297TumsMember
or inappropriate exchanges between girls and boys
That attitude is the problem. There should be no text “exchanges” between boys and girls. That itself is “inappropriate”.February 23, 2011 2:38 am at 2:38 am #745298yentingyentaParticipant
tums: i know someone who txts a guy. 1, he’s older, 2 he’s married, 3, they talk “shop” (they are both in the medical field)
so there ARE exceptions to every rule
but in general, i agree, girls should not be txting boys
and i probably just got myself in major trouble in the CRFebruary 23, 2011 2:44 am at 2:44 am #745299
i dont get this all ppl r worried about texting is that boys and girld shouldnt be conversing it ges with everything emails phonecalls texting and seeing each other whats texting so different from all these?February 23, 2011 3:07 am at 3:07 am #745300cshapiroMember

Its true with just about everyone. Better off are those of us who realize itFebruary 23, 2011 4:48 am at 4:48 am #745303Shmuel294Member
If boys and girls really wants to talk they could find so many other ways that texting would be no factor in this at all. Therefore it is wrong to blame it on texting.February 23, 2011 4:49 am at 4:49 am #745304dunnoMember
I’m with Shmuel. Texting can be used for good and bad just like many other things.February 23, 2011 4:55 am at 4:55 am #745305truth be toldMember
