These days, most people use their phones for texting or as very expensive paper weights. So it makes sense that since we’re texting way more than we’re talking, we’d need to develop some extra punctuation to handle all of the little intricacies of a typing-based world. Like Mockwotations, for when you’re like “I’m totally going to do that thing that’ll never ever do, kthanksbye!” Thankfully, Mike Trapp of College Humor created a whole slew of new marks that perfectly encapsulate the needs of our irony-rich, highly truncated world. Click through to see some of our favorite marks. [College Humor]

Today in “brilliant ideas that only exist because people are awful,” the most popular movie theater chain in the world, Cinemark, has debuted a new app to dissuade moviegoers from texting during movies. Here’s how it works: when a movie starts, people are prompted to use the Cinemark app to put their phones into “Cinemode.” The program tracks whether or not the cell phone was used during the movie; if you’re a good little girl or boy and manage to watch an entire movie without texting your friends or updating your Facebook status, you’ll be rewarded with a discount coupon for your next movie ticket.

How To Stop A Text-Lationship In Its Tracks

In one of my recent online dating episodes, a super cute, educated, funny guy and I began exchanging messages. Every message he sent me either made me smile or laugh uncontrollably. By the sixth message exchange he had sent me his number. One night, I excitedly called him. The phone rang but no answer. I decided against leaving a voicemail. About a minute after, I received a text message saying, “Hey, what’s up?” I threw up a little in my mouth.

If the reason for his text in response to my call had to do with him being busy, deaf or in a nursery surrounded by sleeping babies, it would be acceptable. But he was at home and to top it off, he was online. I know he wasn’t frickin’ busy!  I am growing ridiculously tired of the text-only phase that today’s dating world is stuck in. What happened to the good ol’ days where a guy saw your missed call on this caller ID and thought, “Hey, I should call her back”!? Keep reading »

Paris Hilton’s New Song “Drunk Text” Is Worse Than You Thought

Watch Video

A few years ago, I was in LA for work and actually encountered Paris Hilton in the wild. I was at what I guess was a “hip” bar and she waltzed in with her entourage and settled in a booth at the back. She spent the entire two hours she was there texting on her Sidekick. I don’t think she made eye contact with anyone all night. That girl was clearly a texting addict! So it does not surprise me in the slightest that her new song — how excited are you?!?! — is all about texting. Keep reading »

You give good text and are proud of it. Often finding yourself heavy texting with a crush or brand new love interest, you delight in the back-and-forth repartee, the dings announcing his new message, the way that crafting witty responses keeps your brain sharp and you on your toes. When you talk to your friends, they complain that the men they’re dating text too much. “It’s not even real communication!” they exclaim. “Why don’t they ever just pick up the f**king phone and call?!” But not you. You’re happy to stick to texts for as long as possible. Far from being daunted by a guy who never picks up the phone, you’ll dodge his calls and let him go straight to voicemail so you can text him back.

If this sounds like you, you could be flirting with disaster. While it’s fun, and even sometimes downright dirty to be a master texter, it could put you at risk for these dating pitfalls, especially early on in a relationship. So let your fingers do the talking if you must, but proceed with caution. Keep reading »
