I have a friend that thinks we should talk on the phone daily. She actually came to my home once when I refuse to answer which is a Big Fat no ! no ! I that tried to tell her in a nice way that I have no desire or time to talk with her everyday . To makes matters worse , she expects me to lead the conversation .Confused

not at all i prefer texting and phone calls only for important things. i always tell my younger sister she'll die with the phone to her ear she could talk all day.

A few times a week to family and several times daily to BF.  I don't talk to friends on the phone much.  We chat on facebook or text.

She wants you to lead the conversation? When she's the one who called? Nuh-uh. I wouldn't be having that.

I find talking on the phone tiresome. I tell people to text me before they even think about calling me, cause most likely I will not answer unless your my momma. Talking on the phone is just too impersonal for me. I'd much rather want to see your face when engaging in conversation. You can't do that on the phone unless your video chatting or something.

I don't really like talking on the phone much. If there is a real conversation going, then fine, but if the caller doesn't want anything, I get annoyed. I have a friend like this. Have known her for about 16 years. I tell her I can't sit on the phone like we did when we were in school. I work full time, attend college full time and have a three year old daughter. I tend to ignore most of her phone calls and when I do answer, I tell her I've been busy. When I started dating my S/O she noticed a pattern of when I would say I would talk to him...and she started trying to call me during those times. Pissed me off! She never wants anything important and when I talk for a little while with her, then tell her I have to go, she'll call back a few hours later... and still don't want anything. Drives me insane! She lives 3 hours away now, so she definitely cannot just stop by.

I think it's more convenient than talking on the phone. Especially since alot of the people I do talk to don't answer their phones when you call them anyway.

My firends and co workers think im shallow and stuck up cos I only wanna text. I hate talking on the phone. My monthly minutes are only 60 mins max a month. But my text minutes are beyond. If you don't get a BBM, what'sapp or text from me then that mean we'll speak to each other when we see each other. shrugs.

I don't, unless its my mom. Sometimes my cousin will call me if she needs advice on something, but as far as me picking up the phone and calling someone. It won't happen. The only person that gets that privilege of me calling them is my mom or my fiance if he isn't home and I need to talk to him.

I strongly prefer texing....it's more fun, eliminates awkward silences, and gets straight to the point. Plus, I only call people that I am very close to (mom, dad, sister, bf, etc) or if it's a business call.

I'm pretty much on the phone everyday. Between my mama, two best friends, and boyfriend my phone is always going off.

I text like a mug too...thank goodness for unlimited talk and text.

I have a friend like the OP too. I love her, but she's extra annoying cuz she'll call back to back until you answer and leaves voicemail every single call.

I'm really awkward on the phone. I get distracted, and there are these long pauses...i would just rather text.

unless you are my mother or father. it's just weird for them to text me...its like, you know how to use this??

my father is at a point where he no longer uses all caps and will punctuate, so that is progress.

One of my friends is a great texter so with us it doesn't matter. Lol me and my homegirls 3 way chat frequently. It's fun. We don't want the others to miss anything so we have to talk all at once.

I talk to my other real good homegirl about once a week for maybe an hr or so. We always find something to talk about plus she's a night owl like me so we can chat at odd times.

People just enjoy talking to me on the phone. Idk why.

But I don't feel the need to talk to anybody on the phone everyday that ain't my family. It doesn't bug me cause I know our friendship is solid. People have lives and get tired.

I love a good on going text message convo though. I can text my ass off all day.

Not often.

Besides not having the time and being busy, I not much of a phone person. Or texter. My friends know that it takes me a day to respond to my texts (unless in an emergency) and on the weekend, when I'm staying in the house, I usually just turn my phone off the entire day as to not receive phone calls....

As I get older I'm less inclined to hang on the phone for hours on end unless it's with my fiance when he's traveling. Even then though, he has horrible timing and ALWAYS calls when I'm in the middle of something.

Mainly, phone time = work time. So unless it's a business call, I don't really hang on the phone like that. Even with my own fam. I'm a big texter, and since so many of my circle is on facebook or twitter, we communicate through that. It sounds cold and impersonal but seriously...most people aren't really talking about anything of substance anyway.

Additionally, I'm a huge multi tasker. But with phone calls I can't multi task - just focus on the convo. That's probably also why I reserve that for business calls where I'm taking notes. Unless we're skyping, my friends and fam don't call me lol.

My fiance stays with his iphone stuck to his ear. Most of the time just bs'ing with his friends. He thinks he's slick by telling me it's a business call since his friends are all pretty much in the same industry. Of everyone in our share plan, he BY FAR uses the most minutes. Thank God for rollover minutes.

It depends. For non-work related calls, not as much as I did a few months ago. Some days I might go without any non-work calls, but other days maybe 30 mins-1hr

Most calls are short though except for from 2 people

All the time.
Me and my sisters are on the phone for forever.
Most of the time we are doing different things not even paying attention to each other.

I was sick couple weekends ago and my little sis was on the phone with me for eight hours.
She went shopping , ate, got dressed, took a bath, talking on the phone with her boyfriend using the house phone and just went about her day while on the phone with me.
We conversed between time

This is me all day. I hate talkin on the phone. I feel like we always need to be talkin, & when were not there's that awkward silence... Ugh I hate that. I prefer to just text or talk in person, which I can do all day. Don't call me unless its about money, a job, somebody dying, or somebody in the hospital.
