Dating advice text
Healthy and stable relationships occur when both partners are willing to be vulnerable and present with each other face-to-face.
Texting in moderation works well, if you include more time in person to assess the quality of your connection and deepen your relationship.

It keeps you in the safety zone and fosters avoidance of difficult conversations face-to-face or over the phone.
Often the disappointment is centered on feeling let down when the person you meet is compared against your original assessment behind the technology.

Of course it feels more comfortable being rejected through a text message or behind a computer screen, but if all dating inquiries occur through these means, you are not truly putting yourself in a position to achieve true love and intimacy.
