In today's world, we have so many ways to communicate. If that's the case, why is the #1 way to do so, via text or direct message?
I can’t really grasp this concept and I prefer a phone call vs. a text. I’m old-school in this regard. I would prefer to hear your vocal expression vs. trying to decide your tone through a text.
Prime example. Have you ever seen that movie, “Demolition Man?” Sylvester Stallone has sex with Sandra Bullock via a virtual reality device. They never even touch. That’s where we’re headed if we don’t improve our communication. I personally wouldn’t hesitate to practice abstinence if we decided to go in this direction as a society.
Technology Has Definitely Hurt Interpersonal Communication
Go anywhere and you can find tons of people, texting, sending pictures, taking selfies, seeing what’s trending, vs actually talking. I’ve even seen people out on dates, but looking at their phones. The best scene is people out at a party, lounge or some type of social event, and at least half of them are on their phones looking at social media or texting, vs. talking to each other.
Cell phones are one of the greatest creations of my time. However, it seems like we are devolving as it [technology] evolves.
The art of mastering conversation and communication are learned. They are not inherent and definitely not genetic. So, don’t expect a man to simply know how to have a conversation with you, when all you’ve done is text and communicate via direct message on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat.
