Friend dating brother
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sent a screen grab of a conversation to a friend asking, “What do you think this means? If you are the unfortunate recipient of a passive aggressive text, have no fear- we’re here to help you figure out what’s going on.
I could tell my mom was happy though and so for her sake I pretended to be okay.
I’m not very close with my stepdad but I’ve been trying really hard to stay closer to my mom.
It’s not an easy transition when a parent starts dating again and there is unfortunately no formula to make it that way.
But most of the time it means "I'm saying no worries but what I'm actually saying is a soft 'eff you' because I don't want to get in a fight with you right now but i will hold it against you." If you receive this on its own, it probably means the sender is actually a little hurt by your actions. Maybe even *gasp* give them a call so you two can hash it out in real time.
What They Say: "If you really want to, sure." What They Mean: "I actually don't want to do that at all, but I don't know how to tell you that so instead I'm hoping you'll pick up on it and decide NOT to go through with it on your own." If someone wants to do something, you'll be able to tell.
If you have siblings, they can help relate to what you are feeling about the current situation.
