Does receiving text messages make you uncomfortable?
November 5, 2010 9:02am CST
Every time my phone vibrates, I am filled with a feeling of dread. When I turn my phone on each morning, I hold my breath, hoping desperately that the screen will not light up with a new message after several seconds of blackness. I hate text messaging. Receiving text messages and replying to them makes me feel indescribably uncomfortable, no matter whom I am contacting. Granted, text messages are not quite as bad as talking face to face, since they give me the opportunity to really think about how to respond, but I still feel horribly awkward. Does anyone else feel like this?

No, I don't know why you feel awkward on receiving text messages in a negative way not unless you have been in a trauma of getting a bad text message from the past. I only don't like to get messages when it is early in the morning where it disrupts my sleep, but I am not scared or dreaded whenever I receive any text, it does not bite you at least.

Why, it is weird that you feel uncomfortable when you recieve text messages because i like text messaging with people as it is much more cheaper than making phone calls. I know that you don't know what people really think. I don't feel horribly awkward or uncomfortable because it just doesn't make me feel like you are feeling

Hi Funkykid, I would rather get a text than a phone call and that is mainly because texting is so much cheaper on my phone. I really don't like texting a whole lot but I have my phone just for emergencies and for my daughter to get hold of me when I'm not at home. At work it is perfect because I am a store clerk and it is really hard to answer the phone while waiting on customers. If she texts me then I can just get back to her when I have a free moment. Do you have someone that is bothering you? Is that why you dread it so much?

I don't hate text messages because it's cheaper than making calls but I can understand why you hate text because in your country you like more phone calls rather than text which exactly opposite than mine. I suggest you contact your service provider to block all incoming and outgoing text so you no longer receive them. I worked for a service provider before that's why I know they can do it free of charge.
