Confusing crush? What his texts really mean
You: “Hey! How was your day? We should hang out later.”
Him: “Good and sure.”
Your First Thought: OMG he doesn’t like me. Why can’t he tell me more about what he did today? And does OK mean we will hangout later?
What He Means: He literally means that he had a good day. Nothing exciting or worth taking the time to type happened. He would rather just talk about it in person if there is anything to talk about. And if he said he wanted to hang out, he meant it.
You: “What did you do last night?”
Him: “I had fun!”
Your First Thought: What could he have possibly done that was so fun? Who else was he with and why didn’t he ask me to come? Ugh, I hate when he’s so vague!
What He Means: He had a chill night with his buds or fam. Best way to find out is to ask a follow-up question, like, “Awesome! Did you go anywhere cool?” Just be sure not to sound jealous, OK?
"We need to talk" text
Him: “Hey what are you doing later? I wanna talk.”
Your First Thought: What’s wrong? Why does he need to talk and can’t tell me now? Does he want to break up?
What He Means: Wanting to talk in person isn’t always a bad thing. Who knows? It might be something positive or too long to text. Just don’t freak out until you get the whole story.
You: “Hey dude!”
Five minutes later:
Ten minutes later:
You: “Is everything OK?”
Your First Thought: Why is he ignoring me? What did I do?
