Let me just be forward and say that I text A LOT. It's not necessarily because I'm afraid to talk on the phone, especially to someone I've never talked to before, but I prefer to text mainly because I'm always up and moving and don't have time to sit down and have a casual phone conversation with someone that could be easily communicated to in a text chat.
Plus, I can talk to multiple people at the same time and I don't have to reply back right away. I also like to think about what I want to say to someone sometimes, especially if I don't have the answer or don't know what to say right away.
One thing I use texting for, though, is to ask women out, particularly women I meet online. For the most part, it hasn't been a problem. However, there's talk that a lot of women prefer that guys, especially those they meet online, ask them out verbally because they think guys who text them are just doing so because they're afraid to call.
Like I mentioned above, that's debatable, but we all know that guys should never convey the wrong message no matter what their intent is.
One issue I have run into is women create all these high expectations about me since I'm a pro with text. I had a friend say that I'm a perfect conversationalist when I text, but in person I get nervous and I stutter in my speech, conveying body language that I don't intend to convey.
That puts a lot of women off especially when they only want to focus on how my body language is more so than anything I say.
For women, do you prefer guys to call you when being asked out, or do you not mind texting? Better yet, are guys who call more ATTRACTIVE than guys who text?
