Too much dating as a teen
Both partners in a relationship should respect boundaries.So both should be okay with the other turning off their phone when they need.This is especially true if it’s the couple’s preferred method of communication.Keeping in touch with a partner throughout the day can be thoughtful and sweet, but constant contact may be overdoing it, which is why it’s equally important that both partners feel they can ask for space and the other will oblige.
Given how important texting is, just like any form of technology, there are lines that shouldn’t be crossed.
So how do you tell the difference between texting normally and too much texting in the context of relationships?
They should also be fine with the other’s right to spend time alone or spend time with family and friends without getting angry.
Additionally, both should agree to privacy boundaries, which means an agreement to not read the other’s text messages or demand their password codes for their phones.
According to a study done by the Pew Internet and American Life Project in 2010, young people between the ages of 12 and 17 send more than 100 texts a day.
“It allows them to stay constantly in touch with people who are important to them,” said Amanda Lenhart, senior research specialist at Pew.
