How are you supposed to progress the relationship if you never “touch-base” by actually speaking to one another? Or, am I just old fashioned (39) and not used to this new aspect of dating? Telling someone where you’re located in a crowded theater or bar. There’s no context, tone, voice, or facial expressions to modify your message. You’re encouraged to misspell, you’re discouraged from saying anything deep or meaningful.
