    It's not a first/blind date.

    Hmmm I don't know. Makes it seem like there is some reason you don't want to call.

    No it is not. Unless something has held them up and they can't call right now. Then maybe. Ehhh, sorry about that h4h. I will do better next time. ;)

    I think it's wrong. But my kids don't think so. It does make you wonder why he didn't call.

    I'd never do it, but I'd say it depends on the circumstances, how the person prefers to communicate, what type of relationship you have...I don't know, I'm a sucker for giving people a chance to explain themselves...
    Having said that, if it made you feel bad, then it was not OK.

    Yes. In the busy modern world of numerous communication channels. SMS is just another way to do it.

    To the point and simple.

    Some folks even announce the end of a relationship on FB.
    I think the least one can do is give a verbal message, at least even by phone there is some personal contact.

    I lost a long time friendship by canceling by SMS a dinner meeting with a same sex friend so imagine how it is for a real date!

    I agree with Maria, it depends on how the majority of communication is done. I'm a texter, not because it's the easy way out, just out of convenience.

    Yes. That is, after all, the preferred medium of communication these days. I got broken up with over G-Mail messenger.
