Have you ever sent a text message or DM that you wished you could get back? Remember, “face to face” interactions are where relationships thrive, so as a rule of thumb, try to save the important topics, especially the six below, for in-person conversations.


Without heading your voice, it’s all too easy for someone to misunderstand how big of a deal something is to you.


It’s easy to get caught up in back and forth texting – but beware of throwing insults around from behind any screen. You might regret what you say when you’ve had more time to think about it.


Offering an apology should be taken seriously, and not casually sprinkled into a text message. Instead, try “I owe you an apology. Can we talk tonight?” Then take the time you need.


This may seem like a no-brainer, but even positive bombshells like “I think I love you” are best dropped in real-time.


If you have questions regarding troubling behavior, it’s best to give someone a chance to explain face to face.


Always, always, always consider that your message could end up in front of the wrong person.
