“I’m more of a texter…”

People don’t write much on their Tinder profiles.  Somehow people don’t write anything at all, letting their pictures speak for themselves.

Tinder is basically a picture-judge after all.

I saw on a woman’s profile that she said that she’s more of a texter,  doesn’t speak on the phone much.

Yes, I know texting is current and VEEEERY convenient but




I want to get to know a woman even just a little before we go out… and face it, texting does NOT convey personality,  tone, attitude. It’s not a conversation.  How am I going to get to know if I want to take someone out on a date if I don’t speak to her at least once?

Let’s stop this short-attention-span, guarded-intimacy, too-busy drama.

Put the “Phone” back in “iPhone” (I’m still working on my Android colloquialism.)

Swipe left!

Or… am I just too old for how things are done nowadays?


  1. No, not too old at all, I LOVE when a guy asks if he can call me! And I completely agree, you learn so much about someone just from that phone call. If she’s stuck on ‘just texting’ she’s not a keeper……..

    How was NYE???

    • No keeper, indeed.

      NYE was good. I wad with a friend whom I’ve had… relations with, she wad in from our of town, but we’re friends now do I did karaoke with her and her friend. Nothing happened, but still very flirty. She’s very touchy feely with me, grabbing my biceps, rubbing my chest, even bit my pec once. I guess my working out is working. perhaps if the friend wasnt there there would be some shmecken.

  2. She was nicer than I was….I once told a man I was going to go out with not to call me with “I have five people I will speak to on the phone…you are not one of them, don’t call me.” Totally true, I hate talking on the phone. Granted, that one bit me in the ass because once I did go out with him I noticed he said “and errrything” (and everything) after every phrase he said. “I like to play football and errrything, with my brother and errrything, cuz I like it and errrything.” If I had made an exception to my no phone call policy, I would have noticed that and saved myself a horrible first date!


  3. Texting is more convenient for me because of my busy schedule. It allows me to answer when I can without the pressure of keeping up my end of a phone conversation. However, I agree that it’s no replacement for a good conversation whether in person or by phone. I love to hear the voice of my internet friends whenever I can even if I have no intention whatsoever of dating them. I admit I’m a lot like dl513(above) in that I am thrilled when one of my net friends wants to chat by phone.

  4. I like texting for quick easy stuff like what time are we meeting again….can’t talk I’m in a meeting. But texting in no way replaces getting to know someone by talking to them on the phone.! There is no substitute. Besides maybe face to face.

  5. Speaking is always so much better… texting seems a tad juvenile to me anyways. Too many camos. We are not awkward teenagers but adults(at least physically), why the heck should texting take the place of real time communication? I am very suspicious of a man who texts too much to be honest. Especially when trying to get to know me. I just blank if that seems to be the case. Ohh and nice going with the ex relation female… noiiiiceee.
