My first negative experience with texting came when I called an acquaintance, left her a message to call me back and she sent a text saying, “What’s up?” I called her again and there was no answer. But she answered with another text message that quickly popped up and repeated, “What’s up?” I text her back and said, “I want you to call me.” Needless to say, a few months later, I realized that this friendship wasn’t going anywhere because this individual chose texting to show me exactly how she felt about our relationship.
