Here are some statistics that may surprise you, or maybe not. In 2012, people are sending 340 MILLION tweets daily while ONE BILLION of us are members of Facebook, to say nothing of what is going on with the other social media. That tells me that we are spending a lot of time communicating electronically and less time in face-to-face contact.
What’s wrong with that, you ask? Plenty. In your case, you think that the girl you like is not responding frequently enough to your tweets. Does she live in your community? Well, dear boy, pick up the phone and invite her to take a walk. Then have an old fashioned give-and-take talk. Good news: You are not limited to 140 characters of speech so you can have a good discussion, AND look into each other’s eyes while the words come out of your mouths.
Let me know if your relationship begins to flourish!
