Texting, Affection and Relationships

The most common reason to use texts and emails is to express affection for a partner. This shows that the media can act as a positive force in many relationships. It is likely that technology has increased the ease with which affection can be expressed, with individuals being able to covertly text a quick “I luv U :)!” during an office meeting or call while doing the weekly shopping. Although face-to-face expressions of affection are certainly necessary, it appears that people can add to these positive communications by using the media to continue to express affection.
