What's wrong with asking what's for dinner?  Assuming she's a stay-at-home mom/wife.

I'm pretty much of the assumption that we should terminate all academic "research" for 10 years just to see what would happen.

My wife has begged me to never air our "dirty laundry" on Facebook.  Seeing the spectacle of other friends' trainwrecks has scared her, I guess.

Some women feel that, rightly or wrongly, that asking them what's for dinner is sexist mancentric manocracy. As such; they do not make so much as a sammich for the man(men, buzzy implement) in their lives.

My wife and I ask each other what's for dinner every day. Not in an insulting way, as in "hey are you in the mood for anything specific?"

But then again, we love each other and treat each other nice. Strange concept.

Not on social media though. I've never seen that, but people who would do that sound f*cking annoying.

My wife and I GTalk, sometimes even when we're both home (say I'm out in the garage and she's upstairs).  Plus we have our phones set up to use Google Latitude and let each other see where we are.  For example we're meeting for dinner, so I'll track her tonight and when she's at Telegraph and Square Lake Road, I'll leave my office and arrive at the restaurant about 3 minutes before she does.

Calling sucks, because if she is with a patient or I'm in a meeting, one party can't pick up the phone.  So then you go through the hassle of playing phone/voicemail tag.  Whereas I can covertly respond to a GTalk on my phone or laptop while in a meeting or just respond when I'm free.  Asynchronous communication is so much better for "I think we're out of eggs, stop by the store on your way home."

I find it easier to decipher a clear text message than a cutting in-and-out phone conversation, but I'm sure if that offended the folk I cared about I'd suck it up and deal with it.

Texting has the advantages of a) quiter, thus more private, b) used for short, medium-priority messages.  The phone is when you wanna a) convey complex or large volumes of info quickly, b) multitask when you have the time, c) convey intonation.  Communication to the spouse via Facebook, is c) just Farked.

My apologies, I was not clear in what I meant.  Call or text them.  Not FB, not Twitter.  Calling when possible or texting is cool.  But using FB or twitter for short, necessary communication is stupid.

See, if I type the entire thought that's in my head, it's MUCH more clear.  :)
 
2013-04-12 12:44:56 PM  
Why would you tweet anything at your wife?

Or, I guess more to the point, why do you not have your wife's phone number to send her an individual message in this theoretical relationship?

//I have also done the "talk to the girlfriend over voice-chat even though she's only in the next room" thing, it has to do with playing games online together and not wanting to yell across the hall.

It's mostly trees, so unless you're making noise, you can be surprisingly hard to find.

She can't just yell out the back door?  8 acres is what, about 200 yards by 200 yards?

I have a POS Blackberry that is notoriously sensitive to moisture, so I wouldn't be bringing with on tasks like that.  Glad it works for you...

Completely agree. Funny how you can change just a couple words and make it sound less chauvinistic. "Hey honey, do you have anything you're hungry for tonight?" Is usually better than "What are you making for dinner?"

And the first question sometimes makes for some nice e-flirting.
 
2013-04-12 02:03:02 PM  
I can get behind this article.

I ditched a relationship because she would text... and call... and email about the texts. And talk about the emails. But each medium had a different tone. the emails would be mean and accusatory. While the texts were "poke poke poke" and the conversations bright and cheery.

I was at a loss. Conversations took on a meta quality that drove me nuts. I had to say more than once "so now we're having a conversation about a conversation about a text?"

Inception in real life. Fark that.

And interrupt her bubble bath?  Voice calls are for emergencies only.

Also, a lot of unnecessary stuff goes into a voice call.  First, there's the ringing and wait for answer. Then it's "Hi, honey, it's me.  How are you?  That's good.  Are you busy? I had a question for you.  OK, fine. I love you.  Thanks.  Bye. "  Plus all of the replies to your unnecessary courtesies. Text and FB can get straight to the point.

So, stalking your spouse may strain your marriage.  Good to know.

I have lake that turns my property into a U shape, ~3 acres on each side of the U and 2 acres on the base, with the house in one corner of the U.  So if I'm on the far side, I can't hear anything, in other areas I can hear noise but can't make out words.

/plus I only have the trails cut to form a loop, so she wants to make sure she takes the trail that leads to a head on meeting as opposed to having to chase me down from behind

I was going to say the same thing. We email, but we don't text, or twat, or FB, or IM each other. We do "whisper" each other when we are in game on the same server rather than yell into the next room. It's just quieter that way. If we aren't on the same server, then we have to yell ;)

The first time I met him he didnt even get up or say hi he just had a zombie like trance. He mooched off her for a few years until she got tired of him and divorced him.

My husband has texted or IM'd me to turn down the TV while he's studying in another room. Sometimes, to be extra helpful, I bring him his ear plugs. Or I get the dog to bark outside the office. If I'm in a fun mood, I'll take my shirt off and fling open the door. The zombie trance gaming thing wouldn't do it for me though, I'd divorce that guy too.
