A Man Sent This Woman A "Without Me?" Text That People Instantly And Hilariously Understood

"Him: Wyd. Me: Breathing. Him: Without me????"

Posted on

To make a long story very short: Last week, a guy she was casually texting had sent her this infamous line β€” that I'd confidently conjecture a lot of women have received, and can understand without even needing to know the full context.

Ravii

For example:

"Wyd"
"I'm taking a shower"
"Without me? πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜"

Ravii explained to BuzzFeed News that she and this guy had been talking about an issue at work, when he suddenly, with one text, made it flirty (and about him).

"The overall conversation was about some issue he had [at work]. And I mentioned that I had that issue too," she said.

When she then got the wink-y "without me?" response, she said, "I was laughing and rolled my eyes."

Ravii thought the text was all too familiar, so she shared it online, where it's been retweeted a bunch.

This is why i dont give out my number to men anymore

But what is perhaps more revealing and hilarious is a bunch of strangers immediately made guesses at what was said before the guy wrote "about me?" with flirty emojis.

@ravii97 "I'm about to go shower" was the message before that one huh lol

@ravii97 Did you say you were about to take a shower?

A lot of women (and men) did not even need to know the context. They just...knew.

@ravii97 There's guys that still actually say that...

@ravii97 Yooooooooooooooooooo! That's a fuckboyyyyyyyy!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAH!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ¨

Women shared their own examples of "without me" texts they'd received.

"You don't give out numbers without me????"

@ravii97 You don't give out numbers without me? πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ’πŸ™Š

"You lmao without me??????"

@ravii97 You lmao without me? πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ˜€πŸ˜žπŸ‘ŽπŸ˜‹πŸ˜Ž

Ravii said she first shared the text for a good laugh. But all the responses have her truly cracking up and appreciating the support.

Any dude that use, "πŸ™ˆ" is a boy, not a man. https://t.co/VUjupYJmsV
