Do you remember a time when email didn't exist and virtually no one had cellphones? Oh, those were the days. I enjoyed not feeling pressure to see things and reply within nanoseconds. I don't actually feel pressure to do these things, but I am tired of having to explain myself.
I do not reply to texts immediately because I'm doing something, my phone isn't nearby, or I'm somewhere without service. I think it's very rude to check your phone and reply to texts when out with friends or on dates. So yes, those 15 minutes I was gone? I could have also been on a date with another guy.
