Here’ s an online dating stat to impress your friends with: 40 percent of women say they are having sex with partners faster than normal due to social networking media, such as texting and Facebook and Twitter.

The survey was conducted by Men’s Fitness and Shape magazine. Apparently, texting and such makes you feel like you know a dude better than you actually do. It also – somehow -makes things hotter. “The texting and all the social networking that’s happening…creates anticipation,” explains Dr. Belisa Vranich, a clinical psychologist in New York. “If your goal is to have sex, [texting] is actually helpful for that because it makes the correspondence between people sort of more titillating.”

See, what have I been telling you all?! You must master the art of sexting as soon as possible!

“It [also] gives the false impression that you’ve actually been together for a longer amount of time, so it’s actually OK to have sex quicker,” said the doc. “You may have gone out once or twice, but since there’s been so much exchange, either in texting or Facebook, it feels longer. It actually feels like it has been longer than just two dates.”

Totally true. And  -  in a way – isn’t it true that you DO know the person a bit more if you’re been interacting virtually, even if you’ve only been on two dates? While the virtual personality should not be taken as a completely accurate reflection of the flesh and blood individual, it is some sort of reflection. The way she writes, what she writes about, and so on, is definitely going to reveal something about her character and about her values and about her skills. While I would say it is still extremely important that you get to know the actual person, texting and Facebook do help in that process, and can even illuminate aspects of a character that might not otherwise show in the beginning of a courtship.
