I rem browsing some random mags at starbucks e other day and thought some articles were pretty riveting in a amusing way.
and i was thinking why not share it with my blog readers!
I dunno if i should credit ' seventeen' or 'cleo' cus i only snap the bits...not the mag.screw it.its either one.
Cut to the chase..heres a entry for the gals to understand us boys and yea its my edited version.3 pages is too long.
GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING US-MEN (THRU SMS!)
-ARE U GETTING THE MESSAGE?
U got his text-but did u get his subtext?find out what he is really saying.
1- HE TEXT- haha
HE MEANS- he doesnt have anything else to say,and he wants to end the conversation.dont bother responding until u hear from him again.
2- HE TEXT- U still at the party?
HE MEANS-if he's tryin to find u at the end of e nite.He wants to hook up.if u dont want a random make out,wait until the morning to write back.
3-HE TEXT-up to anything fun tonight?
HE MEANS-he might want to hang out,but he's not committing until he finds out if any of e other ppl he sent this mass text to respond with better plans.
4-HE TEXT-text me later if u wanna meet up.
HE MEANS-instead of making a plan to see you,he's making you do the work.Ignore him for now-he'll text again if he really wants to hang out
DO NOT SEND!
-THESE TEXT COULD KILL YOUR GAME.
"HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND?"
Questions too broad to answer in 160 characters take too much effort to address.stick to quick Qs ("did u make it to the game?")so he can send a fast reply.
"WE NEED TO TALK"
U dont want ur text to feel like the equivalentof getting called to the principle's office.He'll know u're ticked & feel a wave of dread abt replying to u.
"DID U GET MY TEXT?"
Unless ur text was intercepted by the CID(trust me-it wasnt),he got ur message.if u want to nudge him to respond,keep it jokey,so u dont seem annoying.("u know my grandma texts faster than u!")
"I HEARD U HOOKED UP WITH (INSERT NAME) LAST NIGHT?"
Accusations-or anything that will lead to a fight-should never play out over text.Waiting(and waiting...)for him to respond jus allows more time for ur anger to build.
As a male,i admit there's some truth to the above.some.
I mean it sometimes when i say "haha"(i might really be smiling/laffin on the other side).might.
and i wonder why we always complain that its hard to decipher what u gals are trying to tell us.
But a word of advise..too much mind games in a r/s would only screw things up.(all relationships)
Sometimes dont read too much into it,and dont expect too much.
Cut ur partner some slack.
Oh but more sweet talk and actions of affection dont hurt :)
