Text messaging and relationships

Can Love Blossom in a Text Message?: I've never gotten into text messaging on my cell phone--i think it's enough of a pain to enter names into my address book via a cell phone keypad, much less writing whole messages with it. But lots of people text extensively, and this article from USA Today gets into an interesting area: how texting is being used within romantic relationships. Since its brevity allows avoidance of "awkward explanations," some people are even using it to break up with people. Seems that people can find new ways to be tasteless whatever the technology.
