Misunderstandings When Texting

Talking Is More Than Words

When we talk to someone face-to-face—

  • We see expressions
  • We see body language
  • We hear emotion
  • We see gestures.

This is a two-way street – we see them and they see us.

Texting Is Mainly Just Words

Give your partner a break!  Don’t assume you know exactly what they meant from a few words on the screen.


If you feel hurt or belittled, wait until you see them to clarify.  What you thought you read may not be what they thought they wrote.
