from my experience, I prefer to text a message to my friends to make a plan for a hangout. because it will save me time. so, usually, my friends and I will make a meeting point then we will start our hangout. but, sometimes my friends and me confused about choosing some place for lunch. if we make long discuss because of that. finally, we will have lunch at the usual restaurant we are meeting at. lol. I think because girls don't know what they want sometimes.

I always prefer to speak if there are plans we wanna make. but yeah, sometimes they can have no time, so sending a message is an alternative.

I prefer to text messages to my friends to go out, it's easier and more comfortable to both.

It depends on situation. If I plan meet with on friend, I prefer to call. But if I plan have meeting with group of friends, I prefer test message. For this we have a special chat on Telegram. In this chat we can discuss place, plans, time and other things. All participants can check history of the chat in convenient time.

I'm talkative=)) That's why I have lots of information to talk. However, the time meet friend for me is too short for me so I've always go on internet to explain my feelings. texting message more often also makes me comfortable because almost my friend stay in touch with me by the internet! though, Msging a lot make us funny. We can't deny its negative effect - waste time for unhealthy work! Answer question 2: i prefer having a disscussion about choosing something. do u know? i'm a person who usually confused between many choices that's why i need s.o who can support me to get a good choice
