Question Posted Wednesday June 27 2007, 10:36 pm

how do you know if you are being annoying while texting? or know if the person is actually interested? how do you know when the person you're talking to doesn't want to talk to you?

I don't want to sound like a broken record, Texting and computer communication are the hardest to tell if they are annoyed of you or if their just joking aroundm, be aware of that. If they don't want to talk to you, they will send something back short, and pointless like;

If s/he says back: "Okay/ok" "Cool" "yeah/ya" "Oh/O" "w.e/whatever" Etc.. they don't wanna talk to you and their probably busy doing something.

If s/he says back: "Oh yeah, thats cool, what are you up to?" etc. and they ask a question about you, they probably are interested in you and are not annoyed.

xoxo i hope i helped<3

hm, this is really hard because you cant really see the persons face or reactions. but anyway here are a list of a few things i picked up:

1. the person doesnt text you for a while like he or she takes long to reply.
2.the person says brb. and never actually coems back!
3. the person never texs you first. or he texts you only when they are bored!

okay well i cant really think of any more signs you just have to be on the lookout. also, you can always ask them.

they most likely don't want to talk to you if their responses are really short, consistently. and also, if it takes a long time for them to reply. if the person is interested, their messages to you will be as long as or longer than your messages to them. if they're not interested, then vice versa. and if they are interested, they will also reply really fast. they don't want to talk to you if all they say is "yeah" and "oh" and "ok" or whatever.

Well, sometimes with texting and/or IMing it can be very difficult to discern whether or not the person actually wants to be talking to you. Simple because, the communication isn't verbal and direct. Usually though, if the person responds with condensed answers like: OK, Cool, Ya it gives the indication the person is simply replying to be polite. If they provoke a question on their own then you know they are really interested. Just to be on the safe side you can always ask "Are you busy", or "Is now a good time". Don't try to have an elaborate or important conversation with someone over texts because that gets frustrating and annoying. Use it for quick notes and you should be just fine. :)

Hey, well you tell just the way that you tell if someone is interested in talking to you on aim or myspace. You take a look at there responses. If the question you asked definately could be more than a one word answer and thy gave you just a one word answer, you know that there not interested.
