Texting and Sexting

Next to talking one-on-one, texting is currently one of the most instant forms of communication. While texting might be the perfect platform to say a quick “hi,” there are some things to watch out for in a textual relationship with your partner.

Texting Too Much

If your partner texts too much, it’s not only irritating, but it could be unhealthy. Keeping in touch with your significant other throughout the day can be thoughtful, but constant contact may be a sign of controlling behaviour. Consider talking to your partner about giving you a little bit of space. Remember, if they’re using text messages to monitor who you’re with or where you go, that is a warning sign of abuse.
