The 36 Ways To Type Hi, Defined

Here's what your typed and texted versions of "Hayyy" actually mean.

Posted on

1. hey = I give zero effs about you, so hey.

2. Hey (sent from iPhone) = The above, but with the unfortunate autocorrect aspect, which makes it seem like you might actually give an eff about what this person thinks of you.

3. hi = I'm acknowledging you exist, but I'm also pretty annoyed about it.

4. hi pal! = I not only hate you, but I despise you, and I want to let you know just how little you mean to me by using the condescending moniker of "pal."

5. Hello. = I view you as an authority figure, so I'm going to be as formal and grammatically correct as possible.

6. sup? = Please don't ever talk to me again.

7. Hey boo = I really need to talk, and you're one of my best friends, so please say hey back so I can start the venting sesh immediately.

8. Hey girl = Hate you. Hate you so fucking much.

9. herro = We're really comfortable with each other, so much so that this isn't offensive in any way.

10. hiiiii = I totally forgot to write you back, and now I feel kinda badly. SORRY.

11. hola! = I just want you to think I'm cool. (I'm totally cool, right?)

12. Howdy doody. = I'm your grandpa.

13. Ello! = I have a crush on you and I feel weird about it.

14. hiya = I'm starting to panic, because I haven't heard from you in a long time, but I also don't want you to know that I'm panicked so... please, please just say something back. ANYTHING.

15. haiiii = Like "hiiiii," but I actually do feel bad.

16. Haaaaayye (sent from iPhone) = I really just wanted to type "haiiii," but my phone kept autocorrecting me and, well, here we are.

17. Hii!! = I'm actually REALLY excited to hear from you!!

18. heyooo = Why haven't you responded to that thing I originally sent? I don't want to seem like a dick, but I kind of need a response, so... figure your life out.

19. hi :) = Like "hi," but I think you're cute and don't want to seem overly eager.

20. yo = I'm a twentysomething brah, and also a virgin.

21. G'day = I'm that really creepy dude you hate talking to, so I'm trying to make you feel at ease by being a little cutesy. Hope it's working! I'm going to definitely keep trying! G'dayyyyy.

22. hey hey = I hate myself for typing this too.

23. hihihi = I'm not actually busy, but I want to seem like I am so you'll leave me the fuck alone.

24. hey sexy ;) = I'm a douchebag, and if you respond to this in a way that isn't running as fast as possible, then I'm going to take it as a sign that you want to have intercourse with me.

25. aloha = Like "G'day," but this person is even creepier.

26. bonjour =: Like "G'day," but this person is a legit serial killer.

32. hullo? What I'm really asking is, "The fuck is wrong with you?"

33. heya = I've done something humiliating and need to confess.
