You’ve dreamed of him getting in touch but no answer came on his part just yet? You have his number though and just hesitating before you make a decisive move are you scared of silence on the other part of the telephone or no reply from him just ages it would take to hear from him?
To text or not to text?
That depends on what you are trying to achieve with this sms of yours. Have you fallen out over a petty thing that you no longer hold him responsible for and want to apologise profusely for in order to make up? Whoever used a stronger language and scathing arguments to win the battle lost the war as you can only go as far as ruin a relation between you and other people when you are opting for stronger means to win at all cost. If the situation is on a knife-edge then perhaps you should wait until life pours oil on the rough sea and the situation would clear without you taking any unnecessarily premature steps, even as seemingly insignificant as a text message.
Hardly the case
If it was just a cat fight over who should be holding the tv remote control or a similar affair, then feel free to sms as you please, in any major argument that would seriously threaten the stability of your relationship or a relation you would have to see and wait and most importantly not discuss the things over the telephone or with a short message that could be read and interpreted in many ways. Avoid some terse or longish sentences that don’t have to be seen positively by the other party. Think how they could react in your situation and act on the assumption that they could be hurting over an earlier event or surprisingly or not be rather unperturbed by it and hoping for you to reconsider and repent. Would you like to take the whole guilt on you or just wait till they get frighten about you?
A small act takes great courage
Indeed with a small act of sending your text to the other party, you are constituting a change in the line events, one leading to another. You could act on impulse without much need to pour over for ages whether it would be the best idea or not, simply make it come into effect and see where it takes you. Some of that could work, but it would depend solely on the kind of situation you are dealing here with. And no one can tell you whether you should make an effort or not if they are not in your shoes. Only by knowing what exaclty has happened and what you have in mind then we should be more predisposed to help you out.
