Brace Yourself for Some Tough Love: Here’s What His Texts Really Mean


Having a crush on someone is both the best and worst thing that can happen to you. On the one hand, you get those little butterflies in your stomach when they are around and actually have a reason to get cute in the mornings. But on the other hand, a crush will literally turn you into a crazy person.

You will spend hours stalking his Facebook and/or Twitter just because you’re wondering what he’s up to. Suddenly his favorite band sounds amazing to you. No nearby surface is safe from your doodles of love. When you have a crush on someone everything they do is a sign. His texts aren’t just text. They mean something.

“K.”-  K is a definite conversation ender reserved for creepers and grandparents.  If he’s repeatedly sending you “k” texts like he can’t be bothered to add the o in front of it, then he might not be that into you. Or might just be too stupid to actually formulate a witty reply.  Either way, its probably best to back off for a little bit.

“Hey:)”-  “Hey” and “Hey:)” are two completely different things. The smiley face usually implies some form of interest. Now, personally I’m not usually attracted to guys that are really into emoticons but it’s your crush not mine.

Double texting-  There’s nothing I love more than receiving a good double text.  A double text is when someone sends you more than one text back to back before you respond. This is only a good thing when you actually like the person doing it because it means they are really into whatever it is you’re talking about. If you don’t like them, you might as well change your number now because unwanted double texters are usually creepers with a strong sense of determination.

No response- If he doesn’t respond to your text message then HE DIDN’T FEEL LIKE RESPONDING. Don’t believe he didn’t see it or it didn’t send or anything stupid like that. He is a person living in 2013. We all check our phones. Constantly. Just rip off the Band-Aid of excuses and settle into the fact that he’s probably not that interested.  he sooner you do that the sooner you can move on to a new crush.

“Good morning”- If a good morning text doesn’t have your name attached to it, assume that it’s a mass text. Even if your name is on it, it might still be a mass text. People are super creative these days. But, as long as you know what you are dealing with, feel free to enjoy those little sweet morning texts.

“Wanna chill?- Timing is everything with these texts. “Wanna chill” at 12pm is a completely different text than “Wanna chill?” at 10pm. What are we possibly going to do at 10pm that we couldn’t have done earlier in the day? Wanna chill usually means he wants to see you, but not enough to take you on a date. Sorry.

Texts are hard to decode. Nothing is really black and white. Sometimes a guy who likes you will hit you with a “k” and sometimes a guy who couldn’t care less will slip up and double text. The best thing you can do is try to suppress your crush craziness and take texts at face value.
