Keeping in touch with a partner throughout the day can be thoughtful and sweet, but constant contact may be overdoing it, which is why it’s equally important that both partners feel they can ask for space and the other will oblige.
In the good old days, dating was defined by a series of face-to-face encounters.
People met, they spent time in each other’s company, they got to know each other's friends and family, and they evaluated the quality of their connection and compatibility .
Sure, they talked on the phone or maybe sent the occasional letter, but the core of their relationship centered on face-to-face interactions.
A subtle shift seems to be occurring in today’s dating relationships and it warrants our attention.
If both partners talk via text in an honest and open manner, it’s fine to text a lot.
