Only You

Was reading the Guardian supplement last Saturday and came accross an article entitled 'Only You'. Some of it was lovely: elderly couples who prove that young love can, indeed last. Percy, 89 said "We give quite a bit of love. And I give her a cup of tea every morning at six o'clock". He and Violet, 86 have been married for 70 years.
On the flip side, when Sophie, 16 was asked When did you know you were in love? she answered "she texted me saying that she loved me" Did you text her back? Sophie "Yeah, saying I loved her too".
Surely our ways of communicating need to be re-evaluated if this is our means of expressing ourselves. Back to the old fashioned please.
