Texting is often considered the bare minimum form of communication, especially when it comes to romance. I mean confirming plans is one thing , but expressing deep emotions and feelings? Now that’s a different story.
This was made clear when Jay Cutler, the Chicago Bears quarterback, made fun at his fiance’s story about their second engagement and how she, reality TV star Kristin Cavallari, jumped to his defense.
Cavallari told E! News on an upcoming special about their wedding that, “I was in the airport, leaving Chicago … We had just spent however many days together and we were texting and somehow it came up, like, ‘Oh, shall we get married?’ We’re like, ‘Yeah, Okay.'”
The couple was first engaged in 2011 but broke up briefly before getting back together that same year. Cutler got a lot of criticism over popping the question in such a causal way. Cavallari begged people to leave him alone saying, “stop bashing Jay”.
For many younger couples, technology has given a new definition to romance and has not killed courting.
