Why men love smart phone voice-to-text apps

You might notice that when a man does a voice text, he really is talking on the phone. Progress! The only rub is that he doesn’t have to talk with you, he only has to talk to you. He loves it because he can tell various women, girlfriend, dates, lovers, mother, sister-in-law, etc a bit of information, without having to get sucked into a real conversation. It sort of has the same smoothing effect on a man as a TomTom voice that gives him directions. He can interact with electronics without having to have a two way conversation with a person. Women roll down the window and flag someone down for directions, men use the tom toms. Likewise, men like to quaisi talk by talking a text into the phone without have to actually talk to you. He talks to you, you text back to him.

Why are men so averse to two way conversations these days? Because they are spoiled! The last thing a man wants to do is play girlfriend where he has to listen for an hour all about how much you hate this, that or one of the other women you know. If its a voice activated text, he controls the end of the conversation. It ends, when the text ends, and he doesn’t have to do any extricating. No need for the jaws of life to get him out of a two way conversation.

One a day texts however can lead quickly to boredom. To spruce up his repetitive good morning texts, mix up your responses. Text at odd times and don’t always respond as expected. Sometimes text back, sometimes don’t, sometimes call back when he texts, or text when he calls. Mix it up to avoid becoming a bore to each other.
