I read an article  about messenger suggesting that it raises anxiety levels if unwanted. Well that goes for all unwanted activities, even a text from your Mom or Ex-Boyfriend can raise anxieties. Receipt of unwanted texts from anyone else, well that’s considered harassment, even if in the workplace … why you have to be careful with (1) what you communicate and (2) who you communicate with. Non-communication is best when it comes to feelings of (1) upset or (2) liking someone, the saying goes let them come to you. However, harassment is not, if you’re busy doing something else, being bothered by interruption of those activities or work productivity, some people you have to respond to, however just because someone is waiting for a response from you, no demands should press you for time in responding to them, most people are so busy with their own lives, that it would be nice if we could just all respond when we have the time, that’s up for debate: (1) screen texts or (2) reply right away. I’m someone who forgets to reply if I do not reply right away, not a screener of calls or texts. -There will always be people who love you and check on you, that’s not the same as fan mail sent to those you love and admire, they have an aptitude for receiving messages and letters from others, not all are abreast with. If you put yourself out there for the liking, don’t be surprised when you get inquiries, you don’t have to respond to most, and some will only respond given my experiences if you respond to them. Rarely, unless they’re an Eminem account do they text you they miss you in between and wait on a response from you. If youre someone who responds first, that’s putting yourself out there for the liking, and if you get rejected by those inquiries, well then that’s just business as usual, don’t take it personally, you’ll find someone willing to chat with you, and never do anything youre uncomfortable with. In fact it has been found that “high-volume texters who were most stressed in their relationships were also most likely to admit to experiencing academic burnout and the lowest emotional well-being.”  Even loss of sleep can occur “It’s difficult to sleep when you’re preoccupied with a text you just received, composing a response, or perhaps fretting about a text’s exact meaning.”  Much the same way bloggers obsess over what they have written … in shorter spaces on Twitter, where each compartment is examined, rather than writing in longer prose, where you have more room to explain, that explains that. With regards to “unwanted sexting” as someone who no longer has sex, and dates primarily by phone, I would say only if the other party is willing so share your lives with them, otherwise it’s a waste of time, if you are interested in dating in real life. I stopped dating 2014 … for personal reasons, sober. There will come a time, when you no longer feel like hooking up … and texting is a great way to talk to others, without the requirement of sex.
