…well actually you can if you’re in Jr.High and it’s one of those 2 day relationships. It’s actually the cordial thing to do. But for the rest of us–
So you’re in the middle of a text conversation with someone and it needs.to.end. Unlike a real conversation, you can’t really just say goodbye, walk away, fake a phone call, etc. Here are some helpful ways to end a text conversation:
1. Respond to everything with “lol.”
Friend*: So would you maybe want to see that movie Friday?
Friend: So, is that a yes or no?
Friend: Forget it.
Forgotten. *conversation terminated*
2.Use the word, “word.”
Friend: Yeah, so I was all like wtf. Can you believe that happened? I should just quit, right?!
I didn’t say yes, I didn’t say no. And it counts as a response. *conversation concluded*
3. The text message courtesy laugh: “haha.” (Just two. “Hahaha” can be interpreted as encouragement to keep going)
Friend: lol it was so awkward, I’m not even sure what to make of the whole situation.
I laughed. *it’s done*
NOTE: all of these words or phrases are always ended with a period. A period ends a complete thought. It’s a punctuation mark that means a full stop. Use it. You could even try replying with just: .
How do you end text conversations? TTYL? G2G? ROFLCOPTER? LOLERSKATES? …well maybe not those last two.
*to my real friends, I would never use these on you…
