SMS Communication – 1st Quarter of 2016 (Nothing New, Still The Same)

Episode 56 – Friday, April 1st, 2016 (7031)


Argh… it has been already three months passed this year, and there are still 9 months left. But sadly, I’ve been still alone (in my heart) for 9 long months since the girl who had loved so much “left” me. As while I’ve been single, the interaction and communication with my friends are declined. These were because of changing my mobile number (although I’ve still used the one when long distance relationship or LDR was existed, but the other one number was shut down) that I didn’t want to receive any unsolicited messages especially from my “former” friends such as (just called them in initials) “M” and “N”. So, that why only few of my friends (mostly from The Feast) have contacts with me. All of these were after the break-up of LDR.

The short messaging service (SMS) communication with my friends has still been low within 9 months. I’ll show you the chart below why my SMS communication with someone is still (and nothing new) low.

SMS Communication Past 12 Months
Chart 56.1 – SMS Communication with My Friends in the Past 12 Months. Data from collecting text messages from April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016.

According to the chart shown above, the overall total of SMS (from my phone) in the month of March 2016 was only 23 (15 were from received SMS from my friends). It’s still lower than the previous month (down by 23%). Although the accumulating SMS from the month of January 2016 was improved, however, it was not enough to equal or surpass the data from April to June 2015, the time when I had long distance relationship (LDR) with my textmate. In the past 9 months since the break-up, the total SMS has not even reached 100 (except for November 2015 and January 2016), and the received SMS has still been low compared to the sky-rocketed data of the last three months of having LDR. The top “performers” of received SMS from my friends were mostly from The Feast (Media Ministry).

Average SMS Per Day (Apr.'15-Mar.'16)
Chart 56.2 – The average overall SMS per day in the past 12 months.

Again, in the past 9 months, the average of accumulated SMS has still been low. In March 2016, it was only registered 0.74 SMS per day. Although in the months of November 2015 and January 2016 had registered less than 4 SMS per day, it’s not enough to equal or surpass the average SMS per day in the final three months of having LDR (averaging 14.86). Overall, the data only registered 1.72 (plus or minus) text messages per day in the past 9 months from July 2015.

SMS Communication 2011-2016
Chart 56.3 – The total of SMS, including text messages received from my friends, within 5 years.

Sadly, I’ve really missed having the time to communicate with my friends most especially my textmate turned girlfriend (in long distance). Look the chart above (Chart 56.3), right after the end of LDR, the SMS communication has been down in the last 9 months (see the light brown shade). Compared to 5 years ago, when I had a long distant textmate, the data were so high before June 2012 (see the light blue shade). When the LDR started (see the pink shade), the SMS communication was soared high by almost 2,000 total SMS within just one month alone (June 2012). Although in the past few years that the data started to decline, there were still remained high (no lower than 300 SMS in a month). But when the LDR ended, the data went worse dramatically and have continued to stay below 100-mark up to the present.

— 0 — 0 — 0 — 0 — 0 — 0 — 0 —

It’s so sad that I’ve been so alone almost all the times, and I’ve no any contacts to other friends since I became loveless. Now, the first three months of 2016 are already passed, and I need to take action to find a new friend to have some personal interaction and communication (thru Facebook or thru text messaging). It’s a sign of urgency that I need to find a new friend or probably the “Right One” to avoid myself being depressed in the future days come.


Oh… by the way, if I want these stats about SMS communication to be higher enough, there’s a video that I recently love to hear:
