Texting is one of the most used means of communication in 2015, and that fact shouldn’t surprise you. It’s simply easier, more convenient, and quick. Obviously, couples use texting as a way to communicate while they’re not together. There are tons of dilemmas in dating, and nowadays texting is at the top of that list. It usually overcomplicates things and greatly enhances the chance for miscommunication. Because of this, it’s important to set up some rules! Read on to be in the know.

1. Don’t read too much into it.

Texting means different things to different people, especially with men and women. While one person in the relationship thinks that texting means connecting and showing each other that you’re thinking about them, the other might just think texting is a way to make plans. Because of this, you can’t read too much into what texting means to one another.

2. Don’t text constantly.

One of the bad things about texting is the conversation never ends. You don’t need to be in constant communication with your significant other; it’s simply not natural. You both need some time to be independent and on your own. Sure, you can have conversations, but make sure to end it at some point with an “I’ll talk to you later!”

3. Don’t get mad at them for not texting back.

Everyone is guilty of this at one time or another. No one likes fighting with their significant others, yet usually, the topic of not texting back is one of the first things to get angry about with your partner. It’s an unnecessary reason to get fed up with one another, especially because usually the person was just busy or forgot.

4. Don’t have serious conversations or argue over text.

As we stated earlier, texting enhances the chance for miscommunication by a ton, so having serious conversations and arguing over text is an awful idea. You don’t want to make situations worse than they already are, and not talking in person does exactly that.

5. Don’t rely on texting as your only form of communication.

This tends to happen more so in younger, less mature or casual relationships. Relying on texting as your sole means of communication with your significant other is ridiculous because it’s not a face-to-face conversation. It’s important to communicate in various ways, not just texting.
