Social media is an important venue for connecting with someone and deepening romantic relationships, but this is especially true for teen boys.

Among teens with relationship experience who use social media, 65% of boys say platforms like Facebook or Instagram make them feel more connected with what’s happening in their significant other’s life, compared with 52% of girls.

This practice is somewhat more prevalent among girls than boys.We all know how to send the call to voicemail or put our phones on silent mode. If that’s still not your vibe, text them to set up a call.I will say that asking a woman out on a date directly over the phone is a hell of a lot more ballsy than sending a text that says “Hey, you wanna hang out sometime? How many of you have had these text message exchanges? Our tone of voice makes up 38 percent and body language makes up the remaining 55 percent. A text message, even with your fancy enthusiastic emoticons, is only getting seven percent of your message across. So I put another “coin” the in meter of the relationship by sending a quick text check-in and hope that the other person doesn’t come back with anything more than “I’m good. The words we use make up just seven percent of what is communicated.The new paper is based on research by Alan Dennis of Indiana University and Taylor Wells of California State University-Sacramento, American professors who measured the psychophysiological reactions of 72 college students to various mediums of romantic messaging.
