Texting Relationships


In this day and age, texting has become the normal. It is how we communicate amongst ourselves. A problem that has come from this is that many teens have troubles communicating face-to-face. This is specifically affecting teen relationships. The term “texting relationship” seems to be very widely used. I guarantee if you’ve heard this term, unless you’re an adult above the age of 40.

To those who don’t know what it is, or haven’t ever been involved in one of these it may seem quite odd. Basically, a texting relationship is a relationship purely through a cell phone. There usually isn’t much physical contact with the other person, and things said through text wouldn’t ever be said in person.

The issue with this is it usually doesn’t last long and once it is over, the person doesn’t actually miss the other. They miss the texts they used to receive, or the things that were said to them, not the actual person. They miss the attention they used to get and the constant feeling of being wanted. If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, why would you say it to him or her over text?
