In Israel we don’t have the option of texting, so it’s not even a shaylahDecember 15, 2014 8:18 am at 8:18 am #1047946takahmamashParticipant
Depends – do you mean before, during, or after, the date? During the date for sure is a no-no . . .December 15, 2014 12:27 pm at 12:27 pm #1047947ED IT ORParticipant
The main reason its a no go is that it is very very dificult to convey tone & emotion in an SMS.
This often leads to miscommunication and hurt feelings.
Basically its a No from me.December 15, 2014 3:42 pm at 3:42 pm #1047948oomisParticipant
Unless it’s to tell the girl you are running a little late (and assuming you are unable to make a phone call), ok. Otherwise, NO NO NO. Texting is a mixed blessing. It has caused people to refrain from actual conversation with each other, as has emailing. the only positive aspect is that sometimes one does not have time or opportunity for a full converation, and the point can be made quickly in a text.
But I think texting is just awful for initial dating contact. A girl texted my son, who is B”H now happily married, to break up with him after 7 or 8 dates. That in my humble opinion, is disgraceful.December 15, 2014 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #1047949👑RebYidd23Participant
You don’t want their number in your phone or yours in theirs.December 15, 2014 6:47 pm at 6:47 pm #1047950golferParticipant
I totally agree with your post.
Except for one word– “disgraceful”.
You are expressing yourself much too kindly and respectfully.December 15, 2014 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #1047951ChizukGedarimParticipant
I think each couple has to decide for themselves. It definitely is a great way to keep the momentum going in between dates, but only if used sparingly. Having full conversations is a no-no and texting too early on fosters a false closeness.December 16, 2014 4:04 am at 4:04 am #1047952oomisParticipant

Its a generational thing, the younger people text for everything
