Love Phone Texting This Valentine’s Day!

“b mine” “I ❤ u” “ur hot” – not exactly sonnets, but these little love notes are what today’s teenagers are most likely to send and receive on February 14…

 According to a survey of 705 textPlus users ages 13-17:

 Nearly 40% said they think it’s ok to tell someone “I love you” for the first time via text message, and 35% have actually done it

  • 35% of those who choose to say “I love you” in text don’t spell out the word “love” – they use the text symbol ❤ (a heart)
  • And often they’re not careful – 30% admitted to accidentally texting “I love you” to the wrong person at least once!

 Clearly the rules of love are changing in the digital age – so what does a romance today look like?  textPlus resident “textpert” Drew Olanoff offers these tips for texters in love:

 1.          Saying “I love you” over text is perfectly fine – as long as you follow it up with a face-to-face “I love you.”  You can’t ONLY say it over SMS.

2.          Send your Valentine a photo of you blowing a kiss or making a heart shape with your hands – visuals can be sweet

3.          Surprise your significant other by texting “open the door” or “look outside” and be ready and waiting with a bouquet of flowers

4.          Long distance?  Use tech tools like textPlus Face Text to hold a real-time text conversation with photos

5.          No Valentine this year?  Group texting and communities of single friends are the perfect place to commiserate together
