Adult video chat face to face
Self-disclosure is a practice of communication where one person shares information, such as thoughts, feelings, likes/dislikes, goals, failures, about herself or himself to another.
Sharing of this information with someone requires peeling back layers, like an onion.
Communication exchanged in our texts reflects precisely the feelings, thoughts, and longings we exchange when together in person or over the phone.
It never contains substance we wouldn’t share when together.
Text-messaging, however, dampens this attempt to reach the center, namely due to the lack of human presence, whether over the phone or in person.
When there lacks voice inflections and tonality variations in phone call conversations and, facial emotions, body proximity, and an endless array of other nonverbals during in person discussions, a text message is forced to carry the load of the entire human message being sent. Though day-to-day texting conveniences are many, you cannot expect to completely carry this message when you’re in a routine of nearly always communicating through texting happiness of some sort, or even attempting to resolve conflict with someone you’re close with.
More clearly interpreted: texting, instead of a phone call, or, if you’re nearby, meeting in person with those you’re closest with, increases and fosters an illusion of closeness while actually decreasing relationship stability and satisfaction.
However, it’s nearly impossible to rid yourself of texting altogether.
Either way, this person has distanced themselves physically/vocally from you, while amping up their digital presence in your life instead. You’re texting in a meeting, discretely checking your smartphone under the table to read a text from your daughter.Fact is: we are a texting culture, myself included.I text with my wife when I’m apart from her and unable to call.Countries like India, Thailand, Mexico, and Brazil, use some type of video chat application, such as Skype and Whats App, in place of texting. But what can our love of texting back here in the states mean for our closest relationships?The majority of users around the world average only 6 minutes of texting daily. While sending, and receiving information via text message has its ease-of-use and time-saving conveniences during the day-to-day, it seems many can unknowingly become so reliant on a text-based message for these day-to-day eases, that they may begin to behind a text message to avoid an array of self-disclosure, whether positive or negative, in close relationships.
