Texting leads to breakups

By

Texting your significant other all the time should mean you're deeply in love, right? Apparently not, according to some new research.

American researchers have looked at the types and frequency of text messages between men and women have concluded men and women use texting differently - and high number of texts may infact mean the relationship is in trouble.

Time reported researchers at Utah's Brigham Young University examined the texting habits of 276 adults ages 18 to 25, all of whom were either in serious relationships, engaged, or married.

The researchers found men who text their partners more are likely to be unhappy with the relationship, while women who text their partners more often are typically happier in the relationship and trying to reach out – but may be driving their partners away by appearing too intrusive.

Time said their connection with their loved one deteriorated, women attempted to make up or resolve their differences via text, which the scientists believe is the online version of the need to “talk things out.”

Aside from men texting because they're unhappy with the relationship, women women were found to apologise too much via text. Researcher Lori Schade speculated that men may text more as they’re trying to exit a relationship, since it’s a safer, more distant method of communicating.

The study did find that couples who sent affectionate text messages tended to report more romantic satisfaction, but apparently it’s much more satisfying to send a loving text message than to receive one.
