The 10 Biggest Texting Mistakes You’re Probably Making When Talking To Your Crush

I’ll be one of the first people to say that texting is a great invention. As a shy girl, texting has always been a much easier way to break the ice and get to know the dudes I have crushes on. There is much less pressure than speaking on the phone or in person and it just has an easier, more casual vibe.

But even though there are tons of perks to texting your crush, there are also some major downsides. Texting might be less nerve-wracking than calling your crush on the phone, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t make big mistakes. The worst thing about text messages is the lack of emotion – you can’t tell exactly what someone is thinking or how they’re feeling just by reading what they’re writing. That makes it much easier to get confused by what someone is really trying to say and that leaves room for some mishaps. We’ve all embarrassed ourselves over text messages at least once! Here are the 10 biggest texting mistakes you’re probably making when you’re talking to your crush:

Are you guilty of making any of these texting mistakes? Do you know anyone else who makes them? What did we forget? Tell me in the comments!

    What do I do ??!!!???!!?? I told my crush I like him and he said that he likes me back but I thought he ment as crush but apparently he ment friend then I told my two closest friends and they went and told him that they knew and he said that he doesn’t like me and I feel really embarrassed at lunch time I was crying all much I had a massive crowd of my friends over me and he was looking

  • Josh

    I over messaged her and now every time I try I just get told to shut up or go away

    • belinda altiparmak

      If she/he doesn’t appreciate that u want to talk to them and if they r telling you to shut up they aren’t worth it trust me

  • Mike

    I told this girl that I liked her over Instagram and that was the first thing I said.And she looked at the message 4 days ago and didn’t write anything. Does that mean she doesn’t like me. What should I do

    • Anonymous

      Be cool about it just let her know you want a response say something like”if you don’t like me back it’s okay” or try to tell her do you like me too” I know from experience that telling someone you like them and them not respond drives you crazy so just try the steps above and remember she might not know how to tell you she likes you too

    • Jessica

      I’m sorry to say this but I don’t think she likes you… If she did she wouldn’t have left you on “Seen” and not write back. I understand if she didn’t reply for four days and then a few days later or the next day, she opens the message and replies because it shows she was most likely busy.

    • belinda altiparmak

      It might just mean she’s either embarrased about it or she likes u back so she’s to shy to talk to u

  • Kristy

    This guy messages me but when i write back he doesn’t i don’t understand don’t msg me and not write back simple , I’m over it dont know what to do help me!

  • Kate

    Guilty of all the above, I’ve decided not to contact him at all today, give him a breather from me haha

  • Dominique Glass

    I did i kik message him to much now i think he,s ignoring me because he read all my kik messages but wont reply what should i do i really like him i have never felt like this.

    • Jessica

      I think you should forget about him then… He’s not worth the stress because he reads those messages and doesn’t reply back it’s his lost.

      But, if you’re coming on too strong as well maybe that’s why it’s happening.. If you’re not then ignore this part.

  • patience

    very, very helpful and informative….I made a mistake. I didn’t want to seem like I had nothing better to do than wait for him to text me cause he always texts me like an hour after I do..and I was getting pissed so I didn’t reply for 3 days and we texted for a while then he stopped and now he hasn’t replied for a week…..#Sad
