Me: Hi cutie, I'll be playing basketball for a few hours this afternoon.
My girlfriend: Sure, maybe I'll go play basketball all night tonight.
That's just an example of a recent exchange where I'm just letting her know what I'm doing during the downtime when we aren't together. I've done it for the two years we've been together.
Heck lately, words of support and encouragement have been taken wrong. It's strange because when we talk she doesn't take anything out of text. So am I texting wrong, where my words are not capturing what I mean. Or am I texting thoughts at the wrong time. I don't know but if we're texting while she's on her lunch break, and I close with " Enjoy the rest of your lunch." I'll get a reply saying, " What do you mean by THE REST of my lunch?" I'll explain the obvious and hope it doesn't happen again but it has been.
When I've asked her about it she says she can feel my bad attitude in my texts. I haven't had a bad attitude ever since we met. Then when we see each other after her work shift or mine, there is no miscommunication or feelings of bad attitudes. Only when we text.
My solution? We both quit our very decent paying jobs.
