About emails, chats and couples
I was debating about this today. My point was that important issues related to the future of two people together need to be discussed in person and other options like email and chat get no where near in terms of the effect when compared. They are at best, poor substitutes I feel. Things usually boil down to discussing petty issues like the weather etc., but they can get really funny/useless/absurd too like, what was for breakfast today? how was it? did you like it? Now getting to know the other person better might be the whole intention of this activity, but this kind of an exchange is nothing short of waste of time. I do believe that the maturity of the two persons involved plays a major role in the ratio of absurd talk to sensible talk, but not being face to face plays an even major role.
My views might be influenced by the fact that I have never been in a position where email and chat are the most accessible means of communication…and I know some people who would want to crucify me for placing that argument. Well, I can’t help it, can I?
Awaiting brickbats packaged in philosophies.
