|If you are in Junior High, then text. If you are grown up, then call.|
Texting is just moving the conversation from the POF Inbox to another screen. It is NOT progression on any level. Adults like to hear voices because they understand communication is more then just the spoken words but the tone and emphasis too.
Should I sent a couple of texts first, then ask politely if it's ok to call?
You are kidding, right ? Pick up the phone and call. If she answers you can check if it's a convenient time to talk. If it isn't find out when you should call back. This isn't rocket science.
