SMS Convos vs. IRL Convos



Have you ever noticed when chatting with someone via SMS how easy it is to misinterpret the ‘language’ of the conversation? What you may think is funny, may not be received as funny based on cues, and other factors.


There are many reasons why in-person communication is the optimal way to get to know someone. Below we share just a few of those reasons to meet out with others in real life (IRL):


1. Increased Social Connections: In-person meetings allow for the establishment of deeper social connections and the development of trust, which can lead to stronger professional and personal relationships.


2. Enhanced Communication: Face-to-face communication enables nonverbal cues, such as body language and facial expressions, to be conveyed, which can improve the understanding of the message being conveyed.


3. Broader Network: Physical meetings provide an opportunity to meet a wider range of people, which can expand professional networks and increase opportunities for future collaborations.


Meeting people in real life is important because it allows for the establishment of deeper social connections and the development of trust, which can lead to stronger professional and personal relationships. Physical interactions facilitate more effective and efficient communication, allowing for the exchange of ideas and information in real time. Face-to-face interactions are often more engaging and memorable compared to virtual interactions, making them ideal for building personal and professional connections.


In-person meetings also provide an opportunity to observe nonverbal cues, such as body language and facial expressions, which can improve the understanding of the message being conveyed. Additionally, physical meetings provide an opportunity to meet a wider range of people, expanding professional networks and increasing opportunities for future collaborations.


If you are looking to make new connections with people IRL, there are ways to go about that even without having an immediate network. Don’t be shy. Get out there.
