Happy New Year!
I am very curious as to why calling someone or talking on the phone, in general, has become complete taboo. It was so fun to run to the phone when it rang, anticipating it was your best friend, or love interest, etc. etc. Now if you God forbid call someone you are psycho. Also, we now have to text "Can you talk?" before we actually make the call.
Since when did hearing someone else's voice become a bad or overwhelming thing? There are a lot of mistakes made trying to interpret a text because there is no emotion in it. And screw emoji's! It's not like hearing the excitement of another person's voice on the other end of the phone.
Another thing I hate is knowing you were put to voicemail! Oh no you DIDN'T just put me to voicemail!
I think Social Media is fantastic and I also think online dating is becoming pretty cool. It is really a great way to meet someone you never would have run into on the other side of the state who might be a perfect match. But online dating took the person, their personality and their voice out of the process of meeting. These online people want to text all day long, back and forth for weeks, yet can't make themselves available to talk to someone. It's mind boggling.....I would love to hear your thoughts!
