When I first started dating my boyfriend, I would overanalyze every single text. He would text me “ok,” and a huge wave of anger and confusion and rage would come over me. Why couldn’t he be more vocal? Why did I always have to assume that his short messages mean more than they actually do? I would panic over nothing!
As I got to know him more and more, I realized that was just his way of communicating. There was no need more the passive-aggressive period after the sentence or waiting a certain amount of time before responding. I am just way over that, but I know how hard it is to try and decode a guy’s texts when you’re crushing bad. The lovely ladies over at Gurl have put together a handy-dandy little guide on what his texts say vs. what they really mean. Keep this guide in mind the next time you start to panic over something he said!
