I have the power to text many people thanks to myself not being socially awkward. However, do I want to text those people? Or better yet, do I want to talk to them for long periods of time? You see the issue as to why I don’t like to immediately respond or speak to people for a long period of time (unless it’s important) is because they think I’ll have no life. It’s an imagery thing. If I respond to everyone’s texts under 3 minutes or so, it’s makes me look like I’m just sitting on the couch, not talking to anyone else, and I have nothing better to do. In about 50% of my situations, I have nothing better to do than to respond to a person’s texts, however do I want that person to think that I have no life?
Even when texting, we have to set social statures for ourselves.
