These days, communication is becoming more and more electronic. Texts, emails, Facebook wall posts, and Twitter tweets have taken over as acceptable forms of communication for virtually everything. Well, I’m about to let you in on a little secret…
I actually like talking on the phone.
Go ahead. Gasp. I’ll wait while you return to breathing normally.
Now, I should add that I have an unlimited everything plan, and I utilize the texting aspect of that rather liberally. Not only do some people have a serious disinclination to conversation, sometimes things just don’t require a telephone call. That said, there are some people, some topics, or some sorts of conversation that would be better dealt with over the phone.
Breaking things off with someone? Pick up the phone.
Sending paragraphs as text messages back and forth repeatedly? Pick up the phone.
Important news like you’re pregnant or engaged? Mass text or email to the second tier, pick up the phone and call the first.
Just because you have the option to communicate completely electronically, doesn’t mean that you absolutely must. Every now and again it can be good to hear a live voice on the other end of the phone, regardless of whether it’s someone you like, love, or lust. Try it. You might actually like it.
