Can Text Messaging Put the Spark Back into Your Marriage?

I’m not too great with technology. I never did learn how to program the VCR and Ed laughs at me every time I get a new gadget because I get so frustrated trying to learn how to use it. I have no idea what an Android is or why I desperately need one in order to be a productive member of society.

So I was a little taken aback when I heard about a new online course called “Text the Romance Back” by dating columnist Micheal Fiore. I found the story on SFGate this weekend and apparently I missed hearing about Text the Romance Back while I was paying attention to something else.

Fiore’s course is all the rage and he’s even appeared on shows like Rachel Ray to demonstrate his romantic text-know how.

Fiore is a self-proclaimed texting expert, claiming his married friends had begged him to spare his secrets to reignite the spark in their marriages. In a recent presentation of Text the Romance Back, celebrity host Rachel Ray said, “That excited me!” in response to one of Fiore’s texts.”

The point of the online course is to teach mainly married men how to inject a little spice and romance back into their marriages through text messaging. On the one hand, I hate that yet another of life’s activities or pursuits is being conducted via cell phone. On the other hand, I’m in favor of sending romantic emails and e-greetings and this really isn’t any different.

I guess in an age when everything is going digital and we’re all so ridiculously busy, romance via text message is inevitable and probably even makes good sense. I may need to adjust my stubborn stance on technology just a bit!

Check out the story for yourself.

They also have a link to the online course if you think it’s something that could be fun or help you to put a little spark back into your marriage. Those things I approve of completely!

    I think any little bit can help. Like it or not, technology is the way of our world in today’s society. I like to think I can use it to my advantage. Of course it should never be used in place of real conversation, but I think it is a great “instant” way to let your spouse know you are thinking about them. Lately, I have used it to communicate just quick positive messages to my husband just to let him know that he means the world to me and he is appreciated. I think a lot of times these messages can come at just the right time in the day to make them feel special. Just my two cents 🙂
