According to some research, about 68% of Millennials prefer texting to talking on the phone and that number only goes up for Gen Z. Talking on the phone is just too stressful and involved. A text you can answer on your own terms. You want to watch a movie while texting? Fine. You're at a loud party? No problem. You want to ignore a text for two hours then answer? Awesome! It's easier in almost every single way. The only problem is sometimes things get lost in translation. it's hard to tell tone from a text. Is a text a joke or serious? Is someone drunk? Angry? Confused? It's hard to tell sometimes, and that can be an issue. But for the most part, we navigate them pretty well and they're fast becoming the standard for all communication. Given that they're the easy and simple way nearly everyone communicates now, it's clear that the way you text must tell a person a lot about you. It will certainly tell us a lot about you if you respond to a few texts from your crush that we came up with here. For instance, we bet we can tell how many people you've kissed. Crazy? Not at all!
