She said she had moved on, dated other people, understood why I needed space, etc.
It sounded good so we talked for a couple hours and caught up on what had happened in our lives, and we both enjoyed it. By friends I mean: people who catch up once or twice a month and are on good terms with each other.
The Rise of Texting For many people, texting is a major source of relationship communication.
People age 17 to 25 tend to text their romantic interests more than older individuals do (Coyne, Stockdale, Busby, Iverson, & Grant, 2011).
I end up getting antsy and I end up writing people off pretty quickly if I don't think they're initiating enough.
In one sample, over 90 percent reported texting to connect with a partner at least once a day (Schade, Sandberg, Bean, Busby, & Coyne, 2013). Teenagers report an impressively high rate of text-based communications with their boyfriends and girlfriends, with roughly 20 percent of teens who date texting their dating partner 30 times per hour or more during after-school hours or the early or late evening (Teenage Research Unlimited, 2007).
For Millennials, who comprise the now- and next-generation of men and women navigating the dating game, texting is a socially acceptable way to flirt, check-in, ask questions, gossip, make plans, or otherwise connect with potential or current romantic partners.
