Let’s face it. No matter how much you love you boo or want to spend all of your free time with him/her on the phone, you also need a break from time to time. It can get a little exhausting if you are glued to your phone, constantly talking to your partner 24/7.
Now don’t get it all wrong here! You love and miss the person too much to stop talking to them or texting them (which is very very sweet), and most of the time texting is the major way of communicating with each other. But you also need to make sure that this does not come in the way of other equally important things like your family, career, etc.
Creating healthy ways of texting habits in your relationship is a good way of giving some care to your own self and that, is a good thing.
Finding the balance between having good communication with your boo and at the same time not being glued to your phone 24/7 is a tricky thing. But it ain’t impossible.
Here’s giving you three golden pointers –
- Talk it out
Talking it out always helps, provided that you are able to make your boo understand what you’re saying. Relationship and etiquette expert, April Masin tells Elite Daily, “If you’re dating someone and it’s a new relationship, you may be communicating multiple times a day because romance is strong and you’re both chatty, or you may be communicating a few times a week because you’re both playing the field and there’s no real commitment yet.”
Honeymoon phase of relationship or not, you should be able to talk to your partner about your desires, needs and schedules so that you can be flexible in texting them according to your comfort.
- Tell them if you need a break from texting
If you don’t feel like texting someday because you want some alone time, or need to focus on something you need to do, anything actually, then just tell your partner that you want to take a little break from texting. It is important to be open and honest, but in a kind way. You should do this so that your partner knows to give you your space and not be worried about you when you’re not in the mood and are not yourself in your texting.
And if your partner is also not in the mood to text, you both can get some time to yourselves.
- Do not fight via texts
This is a very important one. Fighting over texts is the messiest thing you can get into. If you are angry or hurt, don’t lash out over texts, it will make things worse. Wait till you can talk to your partner in person. If that is not a possibility, then at least over the phone. Jasbina Ahluwalia, relationship expert and matchmaker, told Elite Daily, “Texting in the heat of the moment can result in shooting off hurtful comments you don’t really mean, and perhaps would never say face-to-face, but can’t erase.”
