This study analyzes, from a historical context, the use of texting and other social media messenger tools of females who attended all-girl high schools by exploring their lived experiences and social interactions with males. The focus is on how the females used media technology tools, like texting and other social messenger tools, while attending their all-girl high schools. The purpose of this case study is to determine how these females used texting (and social media messenger tools) to build and nurture relationships with males. This study is meant to be solely about how females attending these type of schools used media technologies to create and maintain relationships with males; not as a comparison between female’s media technology behaviors between public and private schools. The findings for this research manifest themselves into three main categories which include recognition of unwritten rules among females, that females are more apt to break the unwritten rules when communicating with males, and texting serves as tool for nurturing relationships with significant others. The significance of this study is that it provides an example of a specific body of people that are more dependent upon social media sites (because of the all-girl school environment) to begin creating relationships with males, which could be generalized to larger groups who share similar challenges.
