What he texts and what he actually means

When you send a message saying, “Hey”, you actually mean, “I’m missing you.”, right? Come on, admit it. We all do it. But, when a guy says, “Hey!”, he does mean “Hey”. Or “I’m bored.”, at max. What to make of a text, how to interpret it. The communication between a man and woman can be quite complicated, right? What he means, what she implies, underlying meanings, reading between the lines, interpreting texts – let’s make all of this a wee bit easy for you.
Here’s a cheat sheet to help you decode any message he sends in just a snap:
10 texts he is likely to send. And what they actually mean:
1. “She’s just a friend!”
Maybe she’s not but I’m flattered by how jealous it makes you feel. I feel so important right now. Ummm, I might have flirted with her before, but I’m so not going to tell you that. And frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn about her right now.
2. “I’m not really looking for a commitment.”
You are smart, funny and beautiful. You’re all I ever wanted, but if you say those 3 words, I will run away from you, at Usain Bolt-esque speed. Let’s take it slow.
P.S. Be careful about what you write next.
3. “I love you.”
I am crazy about you and it’s taken me a lot of effort to come out and say this. So don’t ask “What?” Just say “I love you too” and let’s live happily ever after.
4. “That’s not what I meant!”
Of course it was but now that you are overreacting, I’m going to backpedal and pretend that you understood it wrong. *deep breaths* *panic mode*
5. “You look more beautiful when you don’t wear any make up.”
This time, he means what he’s saying. Frankly, men don’t see the point of makeup, unless it’s subtle and hardly visible. Skip the kajal to lip stick routine once in a while, and surprise your man with your flawless skin, will ya?
6. “I’m sorry.”
I’m not really sorry but I can definitely pretend to be, especially at this moment. Can I go and sleep now or perhaps watch football? Sorry again, can we make out now?
7. “I’m kidding!”
No, I wasn’t. I was serious, but you took it the wrong way. When in doubt, ‘I’m kidding’ is indeed a saving grace for him.
8. “That dress fits you so well!”
Now, I do notice that lot of little weight you’ve put on. But I will dare not mention it for my own good. And with this compliment, I will slip out from the “How do I look in this dress?” situation rather well.
9.”I have to work late. Won’t be able to meet you for dinner tonight.”
It’s almost impossible to tell you this over a call, I’d rather break it to you in a safe text. I DO intend to meet you again and I’m not brushing you off. I am really loaded with work. And, you’re not the only one who wants to meet.
10. I’m fine. I’ll talk to you later.
I’m actually in a bad mood and I don’t want to talk. I’m also not in a mood to vent and whine. Just let me be alone for a while and I’ll pop right back.
Men aren’t as complicated as we think. Sometimes they may be scared to say what they feel and at others they may just type it out in a text. You have to stop playing Sherlock all the time and just sit back and enjoy the ride.
