I prefer to do as much human interaction as possible via email because the rejection doesn’t hurt as much when the rejecter is not real, only virtual.
It don’t work too well with the ladies, however. They usually don’t reject, they just don’t respond. They want me to man up and pick up the phone and ask ’em out, which is hard for me. I usually have to change out of my knickers and satin chiffon to do this.
Texting can work if you choose the right person and the right moment to say, "I want 2 b 1 w u."
