calling is frustrating (if it's planned, then it's ok.)
texting sucks. if the other person is asking a lot of questions just for reasons of keeping the convo is the worst, since it's taking the precious daily time to answer them and in anyway it won't lead to a meaningful emotional connection. you need to meet face to face, feel the feels, read the vibe and emotion
funny jokes or interesting daily observations through texts are neat.
but if i write, i tend do be a "letter type" person. love writing emails where i can express myself more and you spend just one part of the day for that. my texts on phone tend to be darn long too
