Listen up, girlies. We know how
thrilling it is when your phone buzzes and it’s a new text from
your fave guy. While texting lets you keep the convo going, some of
those emoticons and LOLs could be taken in a number of ways. We’re
breaking down just what he’s sayin’ so you can clear up any
confusion. Good luck!
What He Texts: ;)
What He Means: Whenever guys
text a winky face, you can believe he’s smiling flirtatiously at
his phone. He’s flirting with you – so flirt right back, babe!
What He Texts: What’s the deal
with you and Steve?
What He Means: When your crush
texts you about another guy, he’s jealous – he thinks you like
him! Be direct and to the point – text back, “He sits next to me
in science! We’re just friends .”
But if your best guy friend wants to know what’s up, there’s a
chance he knows something about this dude you don’t. Try and get
him to spill the beans, but if he doesn’t have any gossip, your
best guy friend could be crushing on you.
What He Texts: What’s the
What He Means: If a cutie texts
you about something about a class you’re in together, he thinks
you’re smart – and that’s awesome! Since he’s going out of
his way to make a conversation with you, he’s trying to figure out
if you’re friends or something more. Text him a question right back
to keep the conversation going if you like him. Try something along
the lines of, “Read pages 3-15… Do you want to meet at Starbucks
and study together? Your frappuccino is on me!”
What He Texts: “See ya later,
What He Means: If you love The
Great Gatsby and he’s throwing around F. Scott Fitzgerald
references, this dude is trying to make you realize you’re on the
same wavelength. Whether he’s quoting your favorite movie or asking
you about your hometown sports team, this guy is putting in an effort
– so text back, because he wants you to feel like the expert.
What He Texts: “Hey cutie ”
What He Means: When a guy starts
calling you a pet name, he’s hoping to establish a cute language
that only the two of you know. Give him a nickname and play right
along with him!
What He Texts: Are you going to
What He Means: If he starts
texting you about plans he has later, he’s definitely hoping you’re
going to be there. If you weren’t planning on going, text back,
“Nah – but want to hang out later this weekend?”
What He Texts: So is Alice
What He Means: When a dude
starts asking you questions about your BFF, he’s probably into her.
Play his wingwoman and let Alice know he likes her – pronto! But if
Alice is a random girl in class that you don’t really know, this
guy may be trying to make you jealous – don’t let him get to you,
and move on to the next cutie.
