A Beep in the Night

Riddle me this:

What purpose does texting someone of the opposite sex at midnight serve?  What could possibly be so pressing that you want to start a conversation* via text at midnight?  I can think of several reasons, most of them on par with "up to no good."

Answers?  Do you do this?

*The most common offender texts usually contain, "Hey!" or, "What's up?" After 11pm?  Really?

I once had someone start doing this to me. I think it was a product of boredom. The first night, I responded for a few texts. On the subsequent nights, I just started ignoring them. It wasn't a trend I appreciated. When a "Why don't you respond?" text arrived. Then I explained why I didn't respond, and they ceased.

The nice thing about texts is that they really don't demand an urgent response. Late night texters can safely be ignored until the next morning.

Sometimes a thought comes to mind really late at night, especially on nights when I don't get off work until 11:30. In my head it doesn't seem that late so I text people without thinking. I don't mind being ignored until the next morning. Random conversation starters though? Not so much. That's weird. My invasive midnight texts are usually things that I know I won't remember the next day.
