I’m addicted to the person that I am texting

It’s an annoying habit but constant texting is pervasive and popular with the younger high school and college students. It’s even popular with adults, particular those texting in a romance or online dating situation.

Both (texting too much in general, or texting mostly one person you’re obsessed with) are bad yet becoming obsessed over and texting one person is the more dangerous. This is were it leads into relationships, and obsessive ones at that. In many cases it’s unrequited love that creates the obsession.
