Texting has become very important in the dating world. No, not sexting. Texting.
A new article on MTV's Guy Code blog translates a guy's simple text into the mind of women.
While guys may put little effort into the texts they send women, women have an entire system of texting that is unknown to the average man. For example, when a guy writes, “K.” without any other words, women tend to think you’re a jerk. She will probably complain to all her friends about how you hate her. And how you two will never talk again. Ever. …That is… until you text her again.
But what happens when she texts you and you don’t respond for a few hours? She will not only think you’re a jerk, but she will start to come up with millions of possibilities of what you could be doing. Her thoughts will start small, “Maybe he’s in the shower… I think he told me he was having dinner with his parents… He must be taking a nap… Maybe he’s at the gym…”
After another hour (or minutes for crazy girls), she will start coming up with worse scenarios. “Oh my God, he hates me… He thinks I’m weird… He’s hooking up with someone else…” Then she finally accepts that you hate her and decides to creep on all your social media accounts, including LinkedIn, to see if you’ve had any contact with other humans. This creeping may go on until you respond to her text.
When you finally respond, you can be sure she will update all her BFFs that you finally texted her and are no longer considered a douche.
