5 Messages from Her That He Believes Don’t Require a Response

5. “I’m pooped!”

“Seriously, I don’t think she expects me to respond every time she blurts out her feelings, does she?” a man in his late teens asks, unsure about what to do. “I’m tired,” or “I’m sleepy,” sounds more like you’re talking to yourself rather than engaging in a text conversation, and you probably won’t receive a response from him. Instead, make it a question. “I’m so sleepy. Do you know of any remedies to perk me up?” Or joke, “Can you share some of your energy with me?” so that he can offer you an idea or share his advice.
