With the evolution of technology, a lot of things are changing. Communication is changing, and more of it is being done via social media and text. However, evolution or not, common reasoning suggests that you should know the right time and avenue to say certain things.
As much as you can say anything via text or social media, not everything should. Hereâs a list of 8 of such things you canât say via text.
âI LOVE YOUâ (FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER)
If youâre used to telling your man you love him in real life, thereâs nothing wrong with doing so again in a text, but you just canât break it to him for the first time via text. A subject that has to do with love deserves a face to face conversation, I believe.
SENDING SCREENSHOTS OF PAST CONVERSATIONS TO PROVE HIM WRONG
Not only does this make you seem like someone to avoid, since you keep record of past conversations, it also has the capacity to cause more trouble in your relationship when the issue was already resolved.
âARE YOU IGNORING ME?â
This kind of message reeks of pity, and desperation. If your man is ignoring you, chances are he wonât even respond, so why waste your time, and sell yourself short? A call might be a better option.
âI SEE YOU!â
When you spot your man in a place you didnât expect to see him, the best thing to do is walk up to him, and let him know youâre there too. Sending him this kind of text would make you seem like a stalker than a lover.
âWHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO?â
Sometimes, this actually means âhow have you been?â But because of the way itâs said, itâs misunderstood for a desperate attempt to see one or a lack of trust on your part.
No matter what heâs done, breaking up with your man via text is the most disrespectful thing to do. Itâs even worse if he wasnât expecting it.
âWE NEED TO TALK.â
If you send these words to a man, then you might as well have sent him a text saying âitâs overâ, because thatâs what he will most likely be thinking about. Even if he doesnât think that this is what you meant by it, âWe need to talkâ sounds urgent and official. It sounds like, whatever the topic of the conversation is going to be, itâs certainly not going to be pleasant.
âDO YOU REALLY LOVE ME?â
You really shouldnât ever send a text like this, because this does sound clingy and desperate. Guys do like their space sometimes and they hate the thought of being pushed into saying things. If he loves you, heâll tell you when heâs ready, and he probably wonât do it by text.
