  • I send a funny meme condemning thier use of emojis. Showing that
    1. It's not the brevity of the text that bothers you but the lack of conversational content
    2. It's not a big deal. Written text usually feels more formal using a meme kind of softens it. I argue strictly in memes or in person.
    3. It's completely okay to use pictures. He'll start using memes too.

    Using a meme also stops you from rambling.

    • I have this male friend who always sends me memes when he wants to let me know he is thinking of me. If he has something to tell me he either call me or text me real content text. So is this guy. He just want to keep in touch and kind of make you think of him.

  • Sometimes when there's not much left to say the conversation just fizzles out. There's point in trying to force the conversation so some people will have short responses to let it end on its own.

    This is not a case of lack of interest, there just maybe very little to talk about at that specific time

  • Sometimes you don't have to, that just means he's happy. You could respond back with another emoji and that'd be fine.

  • Just send a heart emoji and leave it at that. Don't try to force the conversation to continue if there isn't much to talk about. And ending at a point where you still want to talk will just give you something to be excited about - next time you talk/talking again.

  • I don't think it's that important to keep the conversation going at this point. Just text him if you have to tell something or wanna share something but non stop texting or ending emoji just to be in contact is strange

  • Sometimes is it not meant to respond.
    Some messages aren't meant to get responses.

    Learn this, You don't need to answer everything just like we don't gives response to everything IRL.
    Many times it only creates funny vibes if we try to.

  • If they only sent an emoji they can't get pissed off if you don't reply. It'll let them know they need to lift their game and text something better next time rather than try drag a conversation out.

  • Like you said, nothing to talk about. The only things you can do is either send a kiss back, and he'll send one back and so on and that quickly spirals into an annoying chore... Or, come up with a new topic. What're you thinking in that moment? What were you thinking about earlier today? Is there a topic that interested you earlier on TV? On YouTube? That you talked to your mother about? Anydamnthing.

    Point is, his resorting to an emoji signifies he /also/ can't think of anything. It's not necessarily that he doesn't want to continue (although that's a possibility too)

    You can't just /want/ the conversation to keep going without adding more.

  • How about with an emoji that you're feeling and a very general question following... How's your day coming along, what are your plans tonight? Or even, "hey let's do something tonight/this weekend"

  • Just pretend it’s his way of saying “I want to talk to you, but don’t know what to say.” lol And maybe it is. Who knows. Just say “Hi. How are you?”, or something.

  • Do NOT answer it. If the conversation has gotten down that far, you've obviously had chances before then to show interest. Now, back off a little and keep him guessing. Don't answer, wait 30 hours or so and text him casually to start up another conversation.

  • Respond back with another emoji similar to the emotion of his but not the same because that could seem like you're copying him. Once you send him the emoji see if he texts back

  • Ask him something... like "are u enjoying FIFA world cup?" or say something random like "I love pizza".. this will start the conversation again!
