Brit Boys are the biggest texters in the World, whether it be DM, SMS, MMS, Whatsapp or Mighty Text, according to latest figures just released. It seems like guys in the UK have given up speaking to friends on the phone, and send messages instead, and, as OutUK's Paul Taylor reports, it's gay boys who like to text the most.

Over a billion messages are being sent every month in the UK and us boys are using them to make dates, cancel them, find new partners and dump them, gossip with friends and report back on just what did happen last night.

In fact so popular is texting, that nowadays the familar phone chirp of a message arriving is a much better way of seeking out another gay man than gaydar ever was.

Some guys are so addicted they just can't give up texting at anytime. One friend of mine regularly texts during dinner in even the most posh restaurants, and he's even been known to answer a text message within seconds saying "CTN BF SXWME" (Can't talk now Boyfriend having Sex with me).

Mark says it all started a year or so ago, the first time he met Paul. His new friend had just bought a brand new state of the art phone and wanted to use it every moment he could. Mark says, "It was a good way of getting his attention. At first our messages were quite tame, 'I LUV U',' Hot 4 U' or "Me&u 2nite" but then we started sending jokes, or even messages from our computers to our phone (expensive!) and things started getting quite raunchy. I got really addicted, if I didn't get a message every hour or two I got really upset."

There are three great rules for hooking up with the man you're after: 1) Make him laugh, 2) Make him think, and 3) Make him really want you. Showing him that you have a good sense of humour, you do possess a brain and you have just the body he's after, is the fastest way to text yourself straight into his arms.

Text messaging has certainly been responsible for its fair share of relationships and their breakups. It's easier than an awkward phone call when you fancy the pants off someone, and if you want to dump them and can't do it face to face then text messages just can't be beat.
