Blog #8: Romantic Relationships

Leave a comment


There is a variety of different types of communication technologies that one can use to initiate a romantic relationship. For example, one could use text messaging, direct messaging on social media apps, face-timing, as well as snap-chat and calling. The type that would be most effective for initiating a romantic relationship would be snap chat and texting. These forms would be the most effective because they are friendly, yet show a mutual interest. The type of communication technologies that would be most effective for maintaining a relationship would be face-time, as this form would provide the closeness and intimacy an ongoing relationship would need. I would not want to terminate a relationship through technology because of the impersonal aspect of it. Face-to-face would provide the most closure if I was to terminate a relationship, however it would be more risky and scary because I would have to deal with the problem in that moment.
