But I feel like actually, you’re using up all your good chat and chemistry over i Chat when you should be saving it for real live, when you’re both in the same room and there are cocktails in situ. Normally sent between 11pm and 1am on a Friday night. Now you’re back at the top of the list you lucky, lucky thing.
If you’re one of those people who is comedy gold on text, email and Facebook , but suck the very life out of the room in person, then go ahead – text away. But chances are you’re far more engaging, smart and funny in real life (almost no-one is as funny as they think they are in texts), then pick up the phone save the rambling text chats for your mum.

He then followed this barrage of Shakespearean amour with: ‘I’m really sorry, but I’ve lost all the numbers on my phone, who is this?True to form, he quickly responded, and started flirting away (I say ‘flirting’, he made some crack about needing a visit from the nurse, and stuck a winky face emoticon on the end of everything… ’ Yep – he had no idea who I was, and just put it out there to EVERYONE. I’m not even sure when he lost my number – he could have been blithely textually winking to a total stranger for months.Weiner and wife Huma Abedin made a joint appearance earlier on Tuesday saying that the latest revelations of extra-marital sexual exchanges will not cause him to drop out of the race for New York City Mayor.Weiner sent an explanatory email to his supporters on Wednesday afternoon, saying that he will 'continue to fight for New Yorkers' and that the messages that were recently revealed came at a time when he was 'working' on his marriage.
