IDK. I might be hungry tho

Good point.

I'll think of somewhere to eat. 

I know what you're like when you're hungry! wink

LOL, I'm not that bad!

Don't worry. We can meet at the bus stop and decide then.

A phone call is the preferable choice for me, unless I know that the other person is at someplace ( like in a lecture hall or a meeting ) where he or she won't be able to attend a call but they might reply back to my texts.

Do you send lots of text messages or do you prefer to speak to friends to make plans?
It depends on the situations. If we have already made a precise plan, a text message is enough, but, If it's a matter of defining the details, I prefer to make a call.

I prefer to send messages. I think it's easier than making a phone call.

i like to send massage if i get enough time but usually i like to make a call if there is any urgent situation

I prefer to text msg rather than making call to make plans .. I don't konw why i just used to do it all the time ..

I tend to send text messages to friends instead of calling them, because it is much more convenient for both of us, due to they might be busy working and
it will be easy for them to answer a text message whenever they can.

Yes, i send a lots of text massages to people but if any problem i usually make a plane and talk about that

I prefer to send lots of text messages because I think that is a friendly way!

If I'm not in hurry to get response from others msg is better I think. If I need to have result right know I'd like to talk to friends face by face or by phone.

I always use text messages to make plans or invitations with friends. It is the easiest way to communicate with other people if I don't know whether they are still at work.
