The 5 Most Misconstrued Texts By People in a Relationship
Anyone in a relationship or who has been in a relationship knows that a great deal of fights are started because of a simple text. It’s not there’s anything malicious about the text itself, it’s that the person on the receiving end misinterpreted its tone. I’ve done this myself on numerous occasions.
Since there’s no kind of tone-indicator on a text message, this problem is one that doesn’t seem to be going away. Here’s the 5 most misconstrued texts by people in a relationship.
Misinterpreted Meaning: THAT’S JUST FINE! Let’s just do what you want, because that’s all we ever do. I mean, why would I want us to do something that I enjoy, for once? That would just be selfish and bring me some happiness, so why would we want to do that? Let’s just do what you want, and I’ll be fine.
Intended Meaning: Hey, could you hold on for just a second? I’m currently doing something that only allowed me enough time to say hold on, but I didn’t want you to think I was ignoring you. Once I complete this task, I’ll explain what I was doing and we can talk.
Misinterpreted Meaning: Will you give me just one second, for the love of God?! I have a life of my own, you know. I have things that I like to do, and I can’t just answer your texts all the time. I will get back to you when I get the chance, so just chill out and I’ll talk to you then.
Misinterpreted Meaning: OK God, I get it. You just don’t stop, do you? You’re the most annoying person I’ve ever met.
Intended Meaning: I really don’t have strong feelings for or against what you’re saying, so I don’t really mind. The time you want to leave for that thing or the restaurant you want to go to is fine. Thanks for asking if it was OK with me, I really appreciate it but it’s up to you, as I have no preference or better suggestions.
Misinterpreted Meaning: Whatever, I don’t give a shit. I hate you and this relationship is boring and every time I see you I’m sad. The best time of my day is the time between the time you text me and when I actually see you, because you’re not there and I don’t have to talk to you.
Intended Meaning: I’m in a situation where I can’t use my phone. I’ll explain when I’m in a position to explain it, either by call or text. Miss you! Kisses!
Misinterpreted Meaning: Listen, I can’t use my phone when I’m having sex with other people and doing the drugs I told you I’d never do. Once I pay this girl and finish my crystal meth, I’ll hit you up. Peace.
