16 Truths For People Who Get Major Anxiety When Texting

Text me a one-word reply. I dare you.

1. When someone wants to give you a mild heart attack all they have to do is NOT respond to a text in a timely manner.


There are literally so MANY reasons why someone doesn't respond quickly, but leave it to you to assume they are dead in a ditch somewhere.

4. When someone responds with one word or letter, you feel A) like you said something terribly wrong, or B) like the relationship is ending.


You reread your text conversation a million times and probably analyze the hell out of it.


6. And you pretty much assume someone flat-out hates you when you haven't heard back from them in a day.


The longer it takes for them to text you back, the greater the chance you are no longer best friends. Logic.


9. If and when you ever decide to send a risky text, you are a bundle of nerves and an agitated mess until you hear back.

10. Sometimes you become stressed by the fact that, unlike face-to-face interactions, you have an unlimited amount of time to craft the ~perfect~ response.
