Impersonal is helpful at times, but when it comes down to it is like to hear her voice.
I prefer text if I am at work. Though when I am off work and relaxing a call is perfect. I like to hear the other person's voice and figure out what they really mean, or how they feel about what I say. It gives you almost as much of an experience as talking face to face.
*sigh* but what if you're a serial killah? .....*hugs*
