Technology and dating have been helping and hurting each other for years, but perhaps no technology is more sweetly accessible than the text message. Think about it: everyone does it, it's fast, simple, and to the point. They're even a good replacement for those annoying phone calls.

One dating and relationship coach has come up with a list of the seven biggest misuses of texting to avoid in dating, and I agree with just about all of it. He maintains that short text conversations when dating are fine (think: "I'm at the restaurant," or "See you at 7!") but because it's emotionless and can cause misunderstandings, there are times it shouldn't be used — specifically to ask someone out or cancel a date.
