Why do guys add extra letters?

Why do guys add extra letters to words like girls do? Is that flirting? I know girls do it and it's a type of flirt I guess so was wondering if that was the same case for guys. A guy I'm talking to does that on occasion and I wasn't sure.

  • I'll do it if I'm trying to get a point across, but never just when talking

  • Don't think its flirting, me and my girl and guy friends always do it, im not sure why just to not sound blunt I guess, like 'okayyy' instead of 'ok', just sounds better in my mind

    • It's through texts. Sometimes guys do it, but not all the time

    • sorry I am being slow on the uptake tonight!!! I think it is still a familiarity thing - wanting to connect by trying to emulate the way another person is communicating - i think it is way of trying to instil trust - probably more subconscious than anything.

  • You mean like if a guy texts "heeey" or something? I'm not entirely sure, but some people send me texts like that.

    • Yes exactly. Like sorrrryyy or anything else. It's not all the time it's just some words sometimes

    • Ok yeah, that is a good question. Maybe they are trying to be cute or something?

    • I guess it al depends on the person. I know people do it to fort and others do it just because it's the way they talk.

  • No. It's just how they would say it in real life
