Always ‘Talking’: When Three Days Without a Word is an Eternity

For a generation accustomed to near-instantaneous keeping in touch, a generation of peers are perfectly comfortable with face-to-face encounters taking a backseat to cyber contact.

Christina Rainie had been trying to reach her friend for three days. For some reason, he wasn’t responding to her wireless text messages, online instant messages, or cell phone calls.

When the pair of University of Georgia freshmen finally did make contact on the fourth day, they argued — heated cell phone exchanges interspersed with apologetic text messages.

A frustrated Rainie decided she no longer wanted him to be her date for the upcoming sorority dance.

“Three days? It’s like eternity!” she explained.
