If you’re sending these messages, you can be sure that you’re almost with this guy, but not completely:
This is the official Almost Relationship text message. You’re looking for an excuse to reach out, but you don’t have much to say, because you really want to grab him and ask why you’re not actually together yet. The resulting texts will be pretty dull since no one’s day is ever that interesting.
You’re not secure enough to suggest that new Italian place in your neighborhood or even come up with a real plan, so you leave the decision up to him. He might not have any ideas, either.
It’s not assumed that the two of you are going to hang out at your apartment, grabbing take-out in front of the TV. You still have to ask him to come over every single time, even though you’ve been hanging out for weeks or even months by this point.
If it was a real relationship, guess what? The two of you would spend the entire weekend together, and you wouldn’t have to ask. It probably spells doom if you’re typing these words on your iPhone.
If he was your actual boyfriend, you would say this to his face. Instead, you text it, hoping he’ll say the same. It doesn’t matter if you grabbed dinner and laughed for hours or hooked up, you want him to know that you’re enjoying your time together.
No one’s staying the night so you text this instead of saying it in real life. Nothing spells almost more than this.
If you have to ask, you’re probably not. Eventually, the other half of your almost relationship will start treating you really badly in the hopes that you’ll dump him. It’s a lame strategy and yet it happens every time. You text him about your plans, hoping they’re still happening, but deep down you know the truth.
This is the text you never want to send and yet you always know you have to. It’s the text that spells the end, and that usually gets the reply, “That’s OK, I understand.” Sigh.
