Communication is the heartbeat of any relationship, the platform upon which other admirable things like trust and understanding is built.

Modern relationships have the advantage of several media of communication -  from phone calls to all forms of text messaging and video messaging.

An issue that has developed from having these options is deciding which of them should be taken more seriously by partners, and which one should be used with less regularity.
