TTD #3 TFST Syndrome

Category: 3 Textually Transmitted Diseasesadmin @ 12:03 pm

Sometimes an innocent text by a significant other can spiral into a massive argument.  Texting for the sake of texting (TFST) is a nasty habit of several people.  It makes you wonder what the heck you were doing with your time before you even learned how to text.  Many people out there just text because their phone or blackberry has that capability per a sophisticated service plan.  You never know, your significant other could be having a bad day and you text them a joke…and they receive it all wrong.  Next thing you know, they’re blasting you on a reply text and your feelings are hurt because you didn’t mean any harm.  And now, an argument ensues. 

Texting is what people do nowadays…BUT DO NOT WEAR IT OUT.

TTD #2 TWU Syndrome

Category: 3 Textually Transmitted Diseasesadmin @ 5:52 pm

Just about one of the biggest mistakes one could make in the world of texting…is texting while uncertain (TWU Syndrome).  It is very difficult to gauge tones, moods, or attitudes via electrons.  During times of uncertainty the speculation can lead to assuming.  It is unhealthy for your relationship if you and your significant other try and work issues out via text.  It doesn’t have to be an extreme argument.  It can be a simple matter where both parties are trying to determine what is what.  If the back/forth continues, it could lead to both parties texting messages out of frustration rather than communicating directly with their counterpart.

Now would be a great time to use the “other” feature on your phone…THE PHONE.

TTD #1 TWA Syndrome

If you want a sure fire way to burn the relationship bridge down, go ahead and text while angry (TWA).  It’s already bad enough that you’re relying on electrons to solve a personal matter.  But now you’re sending messages whose tones are difficult to interpret, except the ones in “ALL CAPS.”  Naturally the recipient may be inclinded to send you a reply back in “ALL CAPS.”  Now there are two angry people Blackberry Blasting each other and not making any progess whatsoever.  So much easier just to pick up the phone or meet them face to face and TALK.

Do not late TWA Syndrome take out your relationship.
