Millions Spent Each Month in UK on Flirtatious Text Messages

A recent poll of 2,000 adults revealed that 235 million flirtatious text messages are sent each month in Britain. All these "sexy" emails don't come cheap with texts totaling $460 million a month and six billion dollars a year. On average, romantic SMS'rs send about 100 hot and heavy messages a month—let's just hope they have a reasonable phone plan to pay for their texting habits!

The research also showed that these serial cell phone flirters preferred to use text messages as a means to arrange dates over doing it in person or with a phone call. If the guy doesn't even have enough courage to pick up the phone to make plans, imagine how much fun he's going to be on the date...good times!

Is this not the case outside the UK then? I've text flirted in the past, I text for everything. I rarely use my phone for actual calls...
