I prefer to send texts. It makes more fun and memories between friendship. Besides, I don’t need to answer back immediately when I have serious matter.

I send lots of text messages to my friends because, unfortunately, they all live in other cities.

Depends of the subject the conversation, if it’s about a big plan I prefer to talk by a call, but if it’s just a meet or something basic , I will rather text for sure
