I saw this great post at news:lite. It follows some research from which says that text message is now the most popular way to ask someone out for a first date. The full breakdown is:

– Text Message 35%
– Face-to-face 26%
– Social Network 20%
– Email 13%
– Telephone 6%

For me, it was email, but I can see why SMS is so popular for this. As a spokesperson for said:

“I think people still feel the mobile phone is a more personal form of communication, and sending a text message is potentially far less embarrassing then making a phone call!”

What about you? If you’ve got any great texts you sent to get a date, or any naff ones you received asking you out on a date, then enter them in our competition.
