40 Times He Texted You and You Had Something WAY Better Going On

Every girl, at some point in their life, has had a boy that they've maybe talked to or fooled around with in the past. No judgment here, I've had a boy that I used to talk to, but for a lot of reasons, I no longer do, and I am SUPER happy about it.

But, nothing is worse than when they hit you with that "wyd?" text when you're out and about, having the time of your life with your friends.

I can think of a million things that are way better than texting that boy who doesn't deserve me or my attention, but here are 40 that show literally ANYTHING is better than having our time wasted and our hearts broken.

1. When you were at a concert

Megan Courtney

For me personally, I ignore almost every one when I'm at a concert, especially if it's All Time Low or another one of my favorite bands, but nothing is worse than a boy texting you during this time. Leave his ass on read and enjoy yourself, girl.

2. When you were at the movies

Especially during "The Incredibles 2??" Boy, bye.

3. When you were at the amusement park

I'm not trying to die while sending a text on a roller coaster. You can wait.

4. When you were swimming

My phone is worth more than you.

5. When you were having family dinner

What a perfect time to say something to my family to get them to hate you.

6. When you were getting ready for a girl's night out

Sorry, can't text and put on foundation at the same time.

7. When you were taking a shower

How dare you interrupt my shower playlist.

8. When you were on the phone with your best friend

Oh look, another opportunity for me to roast you.

9. When you were shopping with your mom

Left on read, loser.

10. When you were driving around with your friends

Don't try to kill my mood.

11. When you were walking your dog

My dog deserves my complete and undivided attention.

12. When you were playing with puppies

Ignore everyone and focus on the puppies.

13. When you were applying for a job

Go get that money, honey. He can wait.

14. When you were actually at work

Can't talk, we're SUPER busy.

15. When you were cleaning out your closet

Don't talk to me. I'm going through my closet and surprising myself with clothes I didn't know I had.

16. When you were watching music videos

I don't care if I've seen this video a hundred times, LET ME WATCH MY FAVORITE BAND IN PEACE.

17. When you were watching TV

A new episode of my favorite show is on. Do not talk to me.

18. When you were eating tacos

Or chicken nuggets. Or food in general. Just don't talk to me when I'm eating. Food before dudes, fries before guys..you get it.

19. When you were in bed

I have just showered and climbed in bed for the night. I'm not going anywhere.

20. When you were sleeping

It's 3 a.m. Of course I'm not awake and of course I don't want you to "slide in."

21. When you were hanging out with another boy who actually appreciates you and not just your body

You had your chance.

22. When you were at school

Passing my exam or talk to a boy? Hmm...

23. When you were buying concert tickets

Nothing on this Earth is more stressful than trying to score concert tickets and your phone is blowing up with messages from a person you have no interest in talking to.

24. When you were on a road trip

All I want to do is roll the windows down, listen to some throwback tunes and make memories with my best friends. Talking to you would ruin it.

25. When you were at the zoo

I'm petting a shark right now, I have no time for you or your bullshit.

26. When you were at a family reunion

This is another opportunity for me to turn my whole family against you.

27. When you were at a birthday party

Who has time to text when there's cake?

28. When your favorite band released new music

Don't talk to me. I need to take it all in.

29. When you were on FaceTime with your best friend

This is another perfect opportunity for me to roast you again, so go ahead and text me.

30. When you were watching Law & Order: SVU

This is the greatest show EVER. Mariska Hargitay deserves all the attention.

31. Or just watching any crime show in general

"How To Get Away With Murder" is always SO INTENSE. If you blink, you'll miss something. I'm not risking it.

32. When you were reading a book

I'm heavily into "The President is Missing" by James Patterson and Bill Clinton, right now. Please do not disturb me.

33. When you were getting a new phone

That satisfying feeling when you pull off the screen protector is more than enough to make me not want to talk to you.

34. When you were getting new shoes

Vans may be kind of expensive, but they last longer than any boy does.

35. When you were stalking someone on Instagram

I'm 156 weeks deep in someone's friend's cousin's mom's Instagram right now. Goodbye.

36. When you were baking treats

I can't talk if I'm putting icing on cupcakes.

37. When you were babysitting

Hitting me with a "wyd?" and a picture of your junk is NOT an appropriate thing to look at, especially when you have children around.

38. When you were making tea (or spilling it)

If the tea is scalding, it's likely about you.

39. When you were spending the night at your grandparents' house

This game of Yahtzee is popping off. No time to talk.

40. When you were doing literally nothing at all.

Laying in bed and staring at the wall is so much better than talking to you. Ladies, if you have one of these boys in your life, drop him! He is not worth the stress!

I Am A Hopeless Romantic Living In A World Where One-Night Stands Are The Norm

It's the little things.


In today's society, it can certainly start to feel like no one takes love seriously anymore.

Whether it's that one couple who has broken up and gotten back together more times than you can count, the two friends-with-benefits no one can figure out, your local womanizer, or just hookups in general, love and lust are a huge part of specifically college life and culture.

As a hopeless romantic, being part of a generation that "just wants to have fun" can be really frustrating, especially when you just want to find something real. It is so easy for people to put on a fake act just to get what they want and sometimes this can be extremely hard to see through. I'm sure we've all had some kind of incident with someone who played nice but had ulterior motives and the sad truth is that it can be impossible to recognize a person's artificiality.

I am a hopeless romantic.

I have always classified myself as such, and it has remained true. Sure, I can make the most of the freedoms I have as a single college woman, but deep down I just want to find my person.

I've had my fair share of letdowns, and I think we all have, but being a hopeless romantic makes it that much more difficult to get past the "what ifs" and fantasies that come along with starting something with someone new. We may already have our hearts set on a person when they decide they've gotten what they wanted and leave.

For me, I find myself caught up in the little things that someone does. I have always been someone who picks up on small details in situations, and sometimes this works against me.

I pick up on the small facial expressions that he may not even realize he is making; the ones that tell you when their guard has been let down, even just for a split second.

I pick up on the way he sits our two cellphones side by side on the nightstand, taking care to line them up perfectly as if that's just their spot.

I pick up on the short moments of laughter where he actually lets himself laugh and forgets about the act.

I pick up on things, and sometimes I end up hurting because of it.

When it comes down to it, though, I wouldn't change the way that I am. I wouldn't change the fact that I find myself in the search for more in a society that mostly only offers me less.

The trait that tends to hurt me most is also the one that I value most. Even if noticing all the little things is something that contributes to my own heartache, I love those moments. There is something beautiful about those tiny things shared by two people, even if the connection ends there.

Sure, it can be hard. But so can everything.

It's just a matter of finding the beauty.

Dedicate Your Summer To Bettering Yourself For Yourself, Not Your Ex

Why waste energy on an ex who doesn't care about you anymore?


I'm single for the summer (yet again, no shock there) but this summer there's something in the air that just feels different. It's the feeling of true acceptance of my single status.

Last summer I was single when I really didn't want to be. My heart with still holding out for a guy who wasn't interested in anything more than my friendship. It took me from late March all the way until Halloween to get over those feelings. However, while working through those tough feelings that summer, I came to enjoy my time on my own and not talking to anyone except my best friends. I didn't have to worry about when I'd get a text back, or if I'd be left on read, or who he'd be out with since I wasn't around. The only thing I needed to worry about was my paychecks and tan lines.

Sometimes after breaking things off with someone who you put so much effort into, whether it was a boyfriend, an almost relationship, or even a friend with benefits, it's easy to want to show off on social media and make them regret ever hurting you or ending things. Why? It's a nice little ego boost, sure, but after those few seconds of glee from the fact that you know they've seen and maybe even liked your picture or your tweet, or saw your story on Snapchat, do you still feel happy? No, you go right back to feeling like crap, whether you want to admit it or not. Stop making yourself all about them when that ship has sailed and start being all about you.

Your ex is off doing their own thing, maybe thinking about you, but obviously not enough to want you back in their life the way you used to be. They are probably out there finding a new person to take your spot because they don't have you at their beck and call anymore. If they're also showing off to show you how much better they are without you or to make you jealous...why are you still following them or still participating in this sick little game for attention? Grow up and block them so you don't have to keep seeing their posts, or be adult enough to stop if you're doing the same as well. If it's only you posting, chances are you just look stupid, so stop before you really embarrass yourself. I was that person, and I know first hand how embarrassed I am for acting the way I did.

Summer is synonymous for doing whatever the hell you want. Wear what you want, say what you want, and be the best version of yourself that only a high dose of Vitamin D can bring out. Your ex is an ex for many reasons. You have to set aside the summer for you and what benefits you only. Don't concern yourself with an ex who doesn't care in the least about you anymore. Coming from someone who posted thirst traps aimed at a specific person along with countless shady AF stories on Snap and Insta in the hopes that this one person and their friends would see it, just stop and save yourself the energy as well as regret.

We're all adults, it's time to stop the petty posts and photos. Post your thirst trap for yourself because you're a sexy queen who doesn't need anyone but herself. Once you start focusing on yourself this summer, instead of your ex, you'll realize just have great it feels to truly be free.
