What goes through the head of a 23-year-old who is away from her boyfriend and is exhausted, but under pressure to send an original good night text:
“It is that time of night when it is time to send a good night text. I just want to send a simple one because John knows me now and I hope he doesn’t think I don’t care, which I doubt because he knows I have massive days and I do care, I am just too exhausted to think right now. Oh but I remember that time I got cranky when he sent a quick one. I did apologise and I was tired which is why I reacted the way I did. Too much emphasis is put on good night texts. I can’t be under pressure just before bed. Saying good night sweet is lovely. Who says being original is better or sexier or sweeter. Isn’t being comfortable a good stage too. Oh yes not too comfortable that you don’t care – that doesn’t happen to solid couples,” tired Jess.
If you think the text thing is getting tough – talk to your partner. Your partner maybe thinking the same thing. Maybe you will both agree to stop for a while and pretend texting doesn’t exist. Maybe you both could have a texting break and actually call every second night instead!
Everything gets boring after a while. It is great that you want to keep things alive and interchangeable.
