    sometimes NOTHING takes the place of an old fashioned, sit down, "face to face" conversation.

    Through natural evolution, it seems likely that man will someday be born without vocal cords. What good would they be when you can just text your thoughts??? ...icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    I saw this one day when I went out to eat. It was a dad and his two young kids. They were pretty much quiet throughout their meal. After they were done eating, they all pulled out the iphones and drifted off to their own worlds. I thought it was kinda sad.

    I met a guy online and we made plans to meet in a couple of days. He started sexting me and...well... I sexted back (I'd never sexted before) It was strange since our original online conversation wasn't all that salacious but it was hot and we were pretty well...um...primed when we finally met

    True. I, personally, hate to talk on the phone. I always look to end the conversation as fast as possible. I don't talk to my bf very much on the phone.
    We keep the interesting subjects for a face to face meeting.

    I'm too busy texting them about how I like my dinner icon_smile.gif

    I don't use my phone when I'm out at dinner with my family, although my brother uses his phone all the time and no one says anything. One time I pulled my phone out to show my mom something for like 2 minutes and I get yelled at for using my phone at the dinner table. icon_neutral.gif

    I've been debating a lot lately whether to just close down my facebook, RJ, Grindr and other "non-real life" identities and try to interact with humans again.
