Texting Could Revamp a Relationship
DAYTON -- When we think about romance, technology isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind, but some women are using it to keep the spark in their relationships.
Elise Treadway doesn't have a lot of free time. She's a nurse, who's studying to be an RN while also raising a son, so she and her partner don't have a lot of face time.
"I really enjoy when he sends me just little things like 'Have a good day' or 'Good luck on a test', Treadway says.
Elise and Tyler communicate more by texting than talking, and she adds, It's our way of letting each other know I'm thinking about you.
A survey by the Meredith Parents Network shows Elise and Tyler are not that unusual. In fact, 30 percent of millennial moms say they text their partners more than they talk to them, while 21 percent say their smartphone or tablet has improved their love lives, and more than half of those moms reveal they've exchanged flirty texts!
Sociology professor Dr. Art Jipson says more couples are finding texting and even social media can renew the romance.
It's a way of creating anonymity because there's a certain mystery to it. There's I'm thinking of you dot, dot, dot, Jipson said.
Laura Mansfield uses her iPhone to stay in touch with her husband, Dan.
There are times when he's going one way with one child and I'm going the other, Laura said.
She's not crazy about the lack of face time with Dan, but she says social media's brought her closer in some ways to her teenage daughters.
We'll sit on the couch and watch thousands of Vines and just laugh, Laura says.
For Elise, though, social media is a way to keep the spark in her relationship.
I Iike the Snapchat thing when I can get a picture of him. It just makes it fun, says Treadway.
The media mix works in two ways for two families, but Meredith Parents Networks says millennial moms are re-writing the rules of engagement.
With all of that texting instead of talking, it's a lot easier to make a mistake: 13 percent of the moms surveyed have accidentally sent an inappropriate photo of themselves to someone for whom it wasn't intended.
