There are positives and negatives to everything in life. When it comes to testing, it’s questionable whether the modern form of communication is having a positive or negative effect on the way we relate with each other as people.

Is texting good or bad for relationships?

Well, yes, according to a new study.

“The use of texting with cell phones can increase intimacy by making partners more available and expanding their repertoire of connection,” according to a report in the Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy. At the same time, the study’s authors caution that “texting is devoid of important face-to-face cues,” raising the risk of miscommunication and real damage to the relationship.
