I hate talking on the phone. It’s so much easier to text and I at least have the ability to think carefully before answering a text. The only person I don’t mind talking to on the phone is my mom, which isn’t that surprising.
Maybe that’s why I am more comfortable with online dating. I tend to get flustered and nervous when I meet someone for the first time in person, plus I pretty much beat myself up afterwards for dumb things I said. At least with online dating I’m able to message back and forth to get a feel for the person. It doesn’t make the in-person meeting any less nerve wracking for me, but at least I don’t go in blind.
I don’t know why I’m writing about this.
