The rules for dating and texting
Needless to say, people got super specific about texts – receiving an “OK” made your blood boil, since it was an absolute waste of money.
However, once texting plans were unleashed and unlimited texting became a thing, you no longer had to ask someone whether or not their plan included such luxury.

It actually cost somewhere around five cents to send or receive one, a sum that quickly added up if you got too chatty.
