Romance Through Text Messages

By February 4, 2008

Follow me on:

I found out I have a secret admirer the other day via text message. Normally I'm not a big texter. I'd much rather converse face to face if I can. Even the phone is better than text because at least I can hear the inflection of the other person's voice. But text? How can you convey any sort of emotion?

Now that I think of it, I should know better. As a writer, my success depends on the written word and how well I covey emotion through text. So why would a text message be any different? Consider it a super-short-short, where you only have 50 characters to convey something important.

So now I'm sold on sending romantic text messages to your partner - or for singles like myself, to the person you admire from afar. What do you think?

In order not to lose our way, it may be useful to outline the plan very briefly in advance. ,

I am totally baffled about this! I too am a writer and I am struck by this, because I’m having difficulty too. This guy and I don’t really know eachother but our wits seem to match. Clever banter, but there’s something I like about flirting vocally rather than guessing what he means. Now I don’t know if what he says means what it sounds like he’s saying. I’m totally confused.
I’m new to dating just getting out of a long relationship where I’m discovering the power of being able to have a “conversation” of jokes and witty banter.
Now I’m stuck because I think he might be tired of texting me?

You can sent I love you to someone, that conveys emotion, but there is nothing better than just ringing your partner and saying i love you instead of hello.
