Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the era of bite-sized communication! Gone are the days of long-winded letters, in-depth discussions, and anything remotely resembling substance in our conversations. We’ve entered the brave new world of short, snappy, and superficial text messages. Why waste time on profound conversations when you can embrace the simplicity and beauty of the one-word response? Let’s dive into the wonders of short text messages and explore why you should never, ever dare to get serious over texts.

Depth is Overrated

Sure, you might think discussing essential issues and exchanging deep thoughts build strong relationships, but that’s just so old-school. Why bother with meaningful conversations when you can keep it short and sweet with a simple “K”? Who needs depth when you can just skim the surface? After all, it’s not like any real progress or growth comes from deep conversation, right?

Keep ’em Guessing

Nothing quite says “I care” like sending ambiguous, vague text messages that leave the recipient in a perpetual state of confusion. What better way to maintain the intrigue and mystery in a relationship than by keeping the other person guessing about what you really mean? Bonus points if you can send a message so cryptic that it sparks a full-blown existential crisis.

Emojis are Worth a Thousand Words

Why use actual words when you can convey your thoughts and feelings through a series of emojis? The beauty of emojis lies in their ambiguity andability to spark miscommunication. So, next time you’re about to pour your heart out in a text, just send a winky face or a dancing cat, and call it a day. They’ll get the message, or not. Either way, you’ve successfully avoided any serious discussions and further cemented your position as a master of the emoji arts.

Save Those Precious Finger Muscles

We all know that typing is hard work. Those thumbs can only take so much before they stage a protest and go on strike. Save yourself from the horrors of carpal tunnel syndrome by keeping your text messages short and sweet. Remember, every character counts, so cut out any unnecessary words or phrases. Better yet, just stick to monosyllabic grunts like “Huh” or “Meh” to show your true commitment to brevity.

Keep it Light, Keep it Right

Text messages are no place for serious discussions. The last thing you want is to accidentally trigger a thoughtful conversation, delve into the depths of human emotions, or make a meaningful connection with another human being. Stick to the essentials: gossip, weather updates, and cat memes. It’s much better to keep conversations light, breezy, and utterly forgettable.


Embrace the art of texting minimalism, and watch your life transform into a beautiful symphony of superficiality. You’ll be the envy of all your friends as they struggle with their lengthy, serious conversations. So keep those texts short, avoid any serious discussions, and remember: when in doubt, just send an emoji! 😜

Until next time,
