Fexting, or contesting message, is something we’ve most likely all taken part in every now and then. Certainly, when Angie’s 9-year-long friendship ended over iMessage, she was angry as well as sad. It’s not unusual to have the weird fight with a close friend over text.
The number of us have vowed to never talk with a pal once more, just to squash the beef the following day just as promptly and also quickly as it began? Yet after Angie’s disagreement, she and also her pal never spoke once again.
“The argument happened over iMessage as well as lasted a few hrs,” she tells GLAMOUR. “We were arguing concerning her telling her companion info about me that was personal, along with her being poisonous and also pinning her companion against me.”
“I had actually spent the bulk of my teenage years keeping that woman, as well as to have it finish that extremely truly impacted me for some time,” she continues. “I’m still hurt about it, but primarily because I let a person I thought cared about me treat me like that. I’m far better off without her in the long run, though.”
21-year-old Steph from Atlanta also experienced a friendship separation over text, yet it actually occurred with her flatmate while they were both in the same residence. “We were living together at the time, so it began with an in person conversation where she made a joke about how I can never seem to get over anything.
“I was pretty dismayed, told her, and went into my room,” Steph tells me.
“After a few mins, she texted me, as well as we dealt with about her still being buddies with individuals that spoke terribly concerning me. It lasted about 2 or 3 days, all while living together! It was rather the fascinating predicament.” Trembling with anger, she wound up needing to call one more good friend, that helped soothe her down, whispering to ensure that her flatmate didn’t hear.
But is text a reliable means of interacting when things get heated? Or do you run the risk of making the circumstance even worse as well as not being able to return from it like Angie as well as Steph?
