Why Texting is Keeping You From Having a Real Relationship

September 12, 2015 2 min read

Texting has taken a leading role as one of the biggest ways our society communicates. When we have a simple reminder or a funny thought we'd like to share, we text it to someone as opposed to picking up the phone and pretending we care how they are, what they're doing, and where in the world they happen to be at the moment. But when it comes to relationships, it can be a bit tricky to navigate what is really being said between the lines. And if you notice you're spending more time texting that special someone as opposed to interacting with them face to face, you may become aware that the spark in those texts isn't quite vibrant when you go to rattle off a one liner in person, and hope they snap back as wittily as they did on their phone. texting keeping you out of touch with your relationship In fact, you may notice that your texts in general are slim to none, or short-versed at best with people you are with regularly. Being able to take your relationship from the keyboard to real life seems easier said than done when you begin a regular connection via text as opposed to in person. So, it's important to be mindful of whether or not this is effecting you. Here are three things to watch out for if you're texting more than actually talking. 1. You're overanalyzing their speech. They only responded with "K" today, but usually it's "Okay!" You're now taking screenshots of your conversation and sending it to friends to help you decipher if they're mad, not into you anymore, or being flirty. This is a waste of your time, and something that would never be addressed had you been talking on the phone or in person. 2. It's not leading to anything. Are you starting to date someone, but you've spent more time trying to make a plan that keeps falling through, and intermittently answering questions about books you like to read and festivals you're obsessed with? If you can't nail down a date, then you certainly can't get to know each other on the deepest level, and texting is far less romantic than connecting over your favourite author over a glass of wine. 3. You're personality shifts when you text. It's easier to be sexier, sassier and confident via text than it is in person, right? But the more you shy away from face-to-face interaction, the less likely you'll know how to act, and the more you might find yourself freezing up, not speaking your mind about what makes you happy, sad, angry, etc. Are you in a relationship that favours texting over talking in person?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number.
