I'd heard similar complaints from friends: potential dates who texted too much, too little; used too many emojis, didn’t seem to understand emojis at all; were too serious, used to many “lols” when they clearly were not .Each text was carefully analyzed for hidden meaning.It’s no wonder, then, that text message miscommunications were a daily source of stress and anxiety.It was yet another box to check as we sought a significant other: textual chemistry.Journalists, VCs–anyone who gets flooded with requests, it would cause a problem, not solve it.”Williams says that he got the idea for Treatings when he was working in investment banking and wanted to get out of it.“I found that my existing networks were only helpful for people in my own field, and not other fields that I might potentially want to work in,” he says.
Waiting for me were five lengthy text messages from a guy I had been seeing for two months."Oh my God, he’s so desperate,” my friend said when she saw my screen.“This is totally normal for us,” I explained. ” I scrolled up to show her my seven unanswered text messages before, his three blocks of text before that and so on.That’s just not how human relationships work—not on the Internet and not off.That’s particularly true for the 54 percent of online daters who have encountered a match they felt “seriously misrepresented themselves in their profile.” We all know that the Internet can be a powerful tool for connecting people, so why do these sites still carry some stigma?My friend, who lived strictly by the rule that you should not double text for fear of looking too “thirsty,” as the kids call it, was aghast. My now-boyfriend has been teased for “texting like a girl,” but it was immediately one of my favorite things about him.I am an effusive texter, and in past relationships I would get frustrated when my multi-text theses would be answered with “yeah” or “sure.” I needed someone who was just as willing to give themselves carpal tunnel as I was.
