It used to be that when you think of people who talk in text, you imagined a valley girl at the mall. But I am learning more and more that guys on dating sites are either lazy or have soooo much going on that at least 50% of the their messages are basically in code that you have to figure out.
This code can range from deciding if adding exgtra letters to a word is a good or bad thing. Like for example, a normal person says hey – but guys on dating sites say heyyyyyyyy. I am not sure that the extra “y’s” are a good thing or a bad thing! Then if they are not making a 3 letter word a 15 letter word they are making a 3 word sentence into 3 letters.
I have recently learned a few key phrases that are used by multiple people: hru = how are you. WYD = what are you doing? GM = good morning. RLY = really. There are more and new ones pop every day that I have to actually ask – what are you saying.
What happened to when people wrote letters to each other? I know this may ne the romantic in me, but Noah on the Notebook wrote Allie a letter everyday for a year – and now I can barely get guys to write me a full word.
