1. x = I’m acknowledging that we are friends.


3. xx = I’m acknowledging that we are close friends.

4. xxx = I have enjoyed our text exchange but I would like this conversation to end now.

5. xxxx = It’s clear that we don’t share the same opinion here, and I think it would be better for everyone if we stopped texting each other now.

6. xxxxx = I know you’re going through a tough time, and I want you to know that I’m here for you.

7. xxxxxxxx = I love you.

8. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx = I LOVE YOU / I’m drunk.

9. xxxxxx xx xxxxx xxxxx xxxxx = I LOVE YOU / I’m drunk / My autocorrect has grouped my kisses together, but whyyyyyy?

10. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx = I love everyone when I first meet them.

11. XX = You’ve made some good points. But we don’t really have anything else to talk about, byeeee.

12. XXX = Sorry, Mum. I’ll stop drunk texting you one day.

13. XXXXXXXX = I know we’re in a complicated place right now, but I don’t see what harm can possibly come from meeting up part way through this very drunken night out. Amirite?

14. x x = One day, we could be close. Right now, though, we’re just two people who know each other.

15. Xx = We are friends, but I’m lazy. I can’t be bothered to make my kisses the same size, which would suggest that I can’t be bothered to do lots of other things too. Don’t come to me when your boyfriend breaks up with you and you need a shoulder to cry on because I’ll be too busy to care. Sozbabes.

16. xX = My kisses make no sense. Neither do I. You’ll never understand me. No one does.

25. XxX = I’m 12.
