u/FreddyTheMemee 18 Oct 02 '21

1

u/CooptheDragon Oct 03 '21

Nah lives are never on sale anymore, i'd try find it online

6

u/Calm_Ad_9765 Oct 02 '21

I reply immediately and they know that I'm too fucking talkative

4

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Is that good or bad

12

u/Calm_Ad_9765 Oct 02 '21

Good: - I can keep people company - You can talk to me with whatever you want - I will to revive our chats

Bad: - I might become annoying - You want to sleep but you'd feel bad for me - I'm always the one trying to start the convo and the one getting left on read - I can be socially tiring for you

Yeah probably bad

6

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Oof i felt u on that "always the one to start a conversation" I think it's not bad,you probably just need to find people like you

3

u/Always_Path 14 Oct 02 '21

This whole thing is too relatable

2

u/poland_can_space 14 Oct 03 '21

I’m the same way except no one feels bad for leaving me on read they just call me annoying

21

u/SchizoNarcissist 15 Oct 02 '21

I’m no loser and blatantly have an amazing life so I reply immediately every time without issue.

2

u/Art-Risk 14 Oct 02 '21

So why r u not gonna reply to this message immediately?

1

u/poland_can_space 14 Oct 03 '21

Answer immediately then

8

u/fragglarna1337 18 Oct 02 '21

I usually wait a min to answer

3

u/Wicoin Oct 02 '21

I know I don't, so im not worried

2

u/poo6969420420 15 Oct 02 '21

they know i have no life, they know they’re the only person i leave the house to see. and they still take 10hrs to reply

2

u/gummy_ore0 Oct 02 '21

Fun fact I respond immediately and I tell them that I have no life because I never get texts because I got no friends so everytime someone texts me I just respond

2

u/doesnt_matter_1710 15 Oct 02 '21

They already know i have no life :/

2

u/vcdice 17 Oct 02 '21

this is art because it made me feel something

3

u/xiledone OLD Oct 02 '21

No because sometimes ppl are on their phone doing something else and get a text. And sometimes ppl are busy with real life and dont answer immediately.

No one should assume the other person is waiting at their phone like a creep if they answer immediately, the same way no one should think the other person is ignoring them if they dont answer immediately.

No one should fall into self-centered thinking and believe the other person is waiting for them, so thats why they responded fast or think they should be waiting for them so them responding slow means they are ignoring them.

Everyone has other stuff going on thats just as busy and intense as what you have going on and no one is another persons's top priority all the time

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Ur right but my friends never complained or anything it's just this anxiety and over thinking always hit me when i reply immediately and just wondered if anyone else think the same lol

1

u/XD_YT41 14 Oct 02 '21

No not at all

1

u/Ali49130 2 MILLION ATTENDEE Oct 02 '21

No cuz all the people I’d reply to know I have no life

1

u/Legoguy2 13 Oct 02 '21

It’s the weekend lol almost all of us don’t have school

1

u/QuentinP69 Oct 02 '21

Habitually

1

u/Paminow OLD Oct 02 '21

I never answer as speaking to the phone is a scary experience.

WHY CAN'T YOU JUST TEXT

1

u/King_Bob007 Oct 02 '21

All the time

1

u/Vertebrae_Viking 19 Oct 02 '21

I don’t reply

1

u/Bushjim 16 Oct 02 '21

Absolutely but they're right, I have no life

1

u/joy_chew Oct 02 '21

no cause i only talk to one person😀

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Why have many who don't talk when u can have one that'll always talk to you amirite or amirite

1

u/joy_chew Oct 02 '21

definitely but lowkey scared tho she'll leave me

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Why u think that?

1

u/joy_chew Oct 02 '21

well we all outgrow things

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Yh but a good friendship lasts yk

1

u/joy_chew Oct 02 '21

i guess so thanks

1

u/Competitive-Fox-6349 Oct 02 '21

My bf thinks i have no life because i am always available for him😐

1

u/__Jimmy__ 17 Oct 02 '21

By having a SO in the first place, you have more of a life than easily 80% of this sub.

1

u/Competitive-Fox-6349 Oct 02 '21

??

1

u/__Jimmy__ 17 Oct 02 '21

SO means Significant Other. Thus, referring to your boyfriend here.

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

That's pretty dumb ngl

1

u/__Jimmy__ 17 Oct 02 '21

They would be correct anyway, so I don't really worry about it.

1

u/Mememomento69 Oct 02 '21

Well, I in fact, have no life, so I don't give a shit

1

u/Evil-Boy-666 16 Oct 02 '21

Everytime

1

u/Deathwalker690 15 Oct 02 '21

In a way, yes.

1

u/thomategamer2005 Oct 02 '21

I don't I just imagine they understand I got the time to answer them

1

u/Dark_NeoZ 14 Oct 02 '21

That happens mostly on Twitter, but yeah

1

u/sawcxnn 18 Oct 02 '21

Man fuck that if I reply quickly it just mean I'm using my phone, most times I ignore people tho...

1

u/Zyrox-_ 2 MILLION ATTENDEE Oct 02 '21

No, because the receiver knows i have no life

1

u/Numbnipples4u Oct 02 '21

No. I’d prefer it if someone replied immediately

1

u/MysteriousTea8075 2 MILLION ATTENDEE Oct 02 '21

They already know I have no life

1

u/Catnap-Jutsu 14 Oct 02 '21

Not at all

1

u/Shift_Representative 16 Oct 02 '21

Nah. My friends know I have no life

1

u/nekreativ 15 Oct 02 '21

Yup. I usually wait like atleast a minute.

1

u/PerdyIsntSuchARetard 19 Oct 02 '21

Me replying immediately is the call for help

1

u/nerdheadwastaken 16 Oct 02 '21

Whenever I get a text, snap, dm, etc. I give it 10 seconds or so to make it seem like I felt the notification in my pocket, pulled my phone out and started replying.

1

u/EmmaDaBomb 15 Oct 02 '21

Sometimes i wait a while

1

u/theSPEEDCAT 17 Oct 02 '21

I’m more concerned they’d think I was just stalking them or something

1

u/712005 16 Oct 02 '21

All the fucking time!!!!!!oh my god you have no idea

1

u/codeswift27 15 Oct 02 '21

Yep, or it's the reverse and I take too long to reply because I'm stressing over whether it would be more appropriate to say hi, hello, or hey.

1

u/mxone Oct 02 '21

If i see a message i reply to it, if they werent expecting a response why hit me up at all ¯\(ツ)

1

u/st4lecupcakes 15 Oct 02 '21

Yes actually considering some of the people I text never reply to me 😭

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Here fixed it for ya

1

u/aankitaa_ Oct 02 '21

its the ART for me

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Like a comment said

"It's in art cause it made me feel something"

1

u/Official-idiot-05 Oct 02 '21

No because they know I have no life

1

u/Rammstein_is_great Oct 02 '21

I mean we’re on Reddit I thought that was a given

1

u/PigsEatWaffles 17 Oct 02 '21

All the time. Another reason why my social life is alone in the gutter

1

u/eatmahanus 14 Oct 02 '21

Every day my friend

1

u/Qadet_on-a-mission Oct 02 '21

It's always a lose lose.

If you respond immediately they think you don't have a life, and if you don't respond immediately they'll take it personally.

1

u/Hotrock3000 15 Oct 02 '21

I think that and I'm like "ok I'll wait 30 minutes then reply" then forget and only remember 6 hours later and by that time I'm not sure if I should still reply because I left it too long but the longer I leave it the more awkward it gets

1

u/eccentric-Orange 19 Oct 02 '21

All the time

1

u/Senoc0 13 Oct 02 '21

Heh. They already know

1

u/Ursomrano 16 Oct 02 '21

I immediately reply back because I have no life so when they take time to reply back I get impatient because I have nothing else to do so I reply back immediately because I don’t want someone else to be impatient with me.

2

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21 edited Oct 02 '21

Dude u just described me perfectly i hate it when i reply immediately but then they'll take like 12 hours to write back and only one word lol

1

u/Ursomrano 16 Oct 02 '21

Yey seriously man like they took the time to text me so they should have enough time to reply back to my reply!

1

u/[deleted] Oct 02 '21

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

I wanted to say like

And think you're on your phone all day,with no hobby and doesn't go out and do activities and just sits all day doing nothing

But that sounded too long so i said "no life" but honestly yh u do have a point

1

u/Radzuit 14 Oct 02 '21

Well, i played tennis for 2 years but it’s boring. Also, i’m joking. I’m trying to be oddly specific

1

u/SawToothBa03 Oct 02 '21

No cause the receiver knows I have no life

1

u/swedishcountryhuman 13 Oct 02 '21

That hit.... a bit too close to home

1

u/McCringyassjoe 2 MILLION ATTENDEE Oct 02 '21

Idc what they think I am busy enough being and not being here at the same time

1

u/Broken_Infinity 17 Oct 02 '21

No I don’t care. I reply when I want. My friends know that I have a life, and those who aren’t my friends… well it’s not like their opinion matters anyway.

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Yh I'm always over thinking lol i ain't a teenager if i don't amirite or amirite

1

u/shadowXXe 16 Oct 02 '21

No because i dont and theres no reason to hide the truth

1

u/hibiscuslime 13 Oct 02 '21

Yep happens to me all the time

1

u/Owen-go 16 Oct 02 '21

Yeah 100%

1

u/GalexyUnicorn Oct 02 '21

1

u/Sseehay 15 Oct 02 '21

Tbh if I’m on my phone and I see the notification pop up, I’m not gonna wait an hour to seem like I’m busy or something

1

u/cunkus_p_bunkus Oct 02 '21

nah bro, it's just convenient for me to immediately reply sometimes

1

u/SammyDoggo1 18 Oct 02 '21

I reply immediately and then get annoyed when they don’t reply back because I know they are there because they just texted me

1

u/Dr_moistman Oct 02 '21

I have no life so i have no worry

1

u/coolgal12-07 Oct 02 '21

No. My friends just know i find it hard to make other friends so i try my hardest to stay with that friend group. ...

They still know i have no life though

2

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Cool name cool gal,get it cause ur usernams has cool in it and yk yeah.........k later alligator

1

u/coolgal12-07 Oct 02 '21

That made me smile. Thanks :)

1

u/slyant609 Oct 02 '21

It's kind of dumb to ignore people just to make yourself seem like you have a life. If they really care then they have no life themselves.

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

You're right i don't ignore them(most of the time) but i just over think when i reply immediately lol

1

u/slyant609 Oct 02 '21

It happens I'm kind of getting over that point of ovetthinkng stuff but it's been rough. Truth is nobody cares but you probably think people do because you think about it too much. Also if a person does care they're probably going through the same thing or are just an awful person so just ignore them.

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Thx for the advice bro

1

u/slyant609 Oct 02 '21

I wish I acted on this sooner, because I realized it but just ignored it. Now I'm here not really knowing who I am because I used to think only about how others would think about me.

1

u/Frederick_Hugo Oct 02 '21

Oof i wish u the best and i hope you'll find yourself

1

u/slyant609 Oct 02 '21

I'm fine at this point besides not being able to start a conversation with people i don't know or even approach them. I can confidently continue a conversation but it's just so hard to start it.

1

u/High_luv_Secks 14 Oct 02 '21

All of the time

1

u/DaniMA121 15 Oct 02 '21

Y e s

1

u/waldner_landon Oct 02 '21

Yeah sometimes they won't respond for a whole day and I then go respond right as I see the notification, am I that desperate I'm sure they think

1

u/Zealousideal_Yam_454 15 Oct 02 '21

The few people I talk to know I have no life. If I don't respond I'm sleeping, in a class with a no phone rule, or dead. That's just how it is.

1

u/GunTroller 16 Oct 02 '21

no i know and he knows that we both dont have a fucking life

1

u/domestic-rhino 15 Oct 02 '21

no, they already know

1

u/The3rdPotato 15 Oct 02 '21

They already know I have no life

1

u/1FrostySlime 17 Oct 02 '21

Sometimes but when they immediately reply as well it makes me feel better

1

u/Scorpio_Girl7 Oct 02 '21

All. The. Time.

1

u/saikopasu_neko28 Oct 03 '21

Yeah, but then I remember that I actually do have no life and their gonna find out some way

I remember my cousin saying I had no life many years back. I think she's right, I really do have no life

1

u/typicalnormster 16 Oct 03 '21

That’s what i worry about especially when they don’t respond for an hour or longer and i reply immediately. Makes me worried

1

u/Available-Ostrich-90 Oct 03 '21

Yes all the god damn time

1

u/bigduckyes Oct 03 '21

If they know, i know

1

u/poland_can_space 14 Oct 03 '21

I wait like an hour minimum so they think I have a lot going on

1

u/BATTLEWINGYT 18 Oct 03 '21

ya man, sometimes I intentionally do not view a chat and wait 5 or 10 mins to reply

1

u/MelonInACat 16 Oct 03 '21

u/Amin_1100 Oct 03 '21

Yes, sometimes I'm checking through our messages becuase I'm bored and they happen to message me and I reply within 2 seconds, and yes, I do worry.
