    I used to text dozens of people and when they didn't reply I would get all paranoid wondering why no one's talking to me, etc. I think it acted as a means to validate my social worth, but for some reason I allowed this to dictate my personal worth and found my emotions highly riding on how many people wanting to express a boring sentiment in 140 characters. These days I only text my parents (as I'm in uni, just to keep up, though I only text them on a weekly basis), my best friend (different uni, miss her ridiculously), another good friend (we've never lived anywhere near so I've always texted him, I'd say over half of my texts are to him) and my brother occasionally to meet up with him. Sometimes some friends from uni if we're meeting up. It's very different these days, and I feel happier for using SMS as a tool to meet people in person and just infrequently hold short talks with important people.

    Not sure, it depends. I don't really text people for no reason, I see some of my friends texting ALL the time and they're just talking about stupid, pointless stuff... I don't see the point. I can't really put a number on it because as I said it just depends. I wouldn't say there's anyone I text EVERY day, just my friends when I need them really, and my parents. If I averaged it out over a week, I'd say I send about 50 - 100.

    *a week, never really count per day

    I text one person everyday, and other than that between 0-5 extra people usually,
    I used to text loooads but then i realised that sending 60+ texts a day just to one person was seriously damaging my bank balance

    My phone serves as an oversized calculator/clock. Do these text? No. There is your answer.

    Yesterday it was 6. Sometimes more than that though, and depends when it is - in school time there will be a lot more people because I'll be sending people messages about work/lessons/meeting somewhere etc, but in the holidays I tend to have longer conversations with a couple of people

    I only regularly text my boyfriend. Other than him, I text my brother, flatmate and a few uni friends occasionally, generally to arrange things rather than as a conversation. Having a blackberry I seem to email more, my mum is much more likely to get an email when she's at work than a text. BBM only works if you know other people with Blackberrys... I have 3 BBM contacts and as I have unlimited texts I hardly think of using it!

    I text my boyfriend most of the day whilst he's at work I get random texts from him and ones on his dinner. I text other people during the day if I want to text to them or need to talk to them, like university friends for help on assignments and stuff.
    I have a blackberry too so I always BBM my best friend rather than text her, we send the occasional text but normally BBM all day everyday!

    This thread makes me feel better as seeing people on their phones ALL the time was starting to make me feel socially retarded

    I keep regular text contact with about 7/8 people and probably only average about 5 a day, it's not unusual for me to go without sending or receiving a text a few days in a week.

    On average I'd say I text 3/4 people a day but who they are normally changes (though one of them's generally my mum just before I look cool)

    Two max (my only friends ), more if you count family members texting you to do stuff. I don't text much though just a few texts a day, it's annoying and you just cannot get a satisfying conversation rolling, prefer phone calls tbh.
