“It’s the closest thing to being held hostage without actually being in a hostage situation.”

Have you ever tried to make plans with friends over a group text? Trying to figure out a day when everyone can meet will inevitably turn into a struggle that lasts for days or WEEKS. Someone picks a date and someone else can’t make it. Someone suggests another date and a different person is unavailable. If you’re the one friend who can’t make it on a day that everyone else can, you pretty much become a pariah. To help illustrate what a pain in the ass it is, Jimmy Kimmel enlisted Fifth Harmony to “sing a group text.”

There’s no denying that a well-worded text message sent to your love can go along way in terms of keeping things lively in a relationship. Of course, while those “three little words” are always a wonderful message to give and receive in a relationship, sometimes something silly or sexy can be even better

To help find some unique messages to share with your boo we scoured Reddit for the most romantic texts users had sent or received.

Check them out below!

For couples in long term relationships.

“I’m gonna snuggle the fuck out of you when I get home. Then make dinner.” –cupcakeinvestigator

“Overly long context: I don’t usually PMS, but there was one week a couple months ago where I just felt like an emotional wreck, and it was freaking me out because I don’t usually get like that. I had been dating my boyfriend a few months, and he invited me to a game night with his friends, whom I had not met before. I was very frustrated about the evening because I like knowing details and planning in advance, but I was looped into everything very late and was getting super frustrated with my boyfriend that I hadn’t been provided more information sooner. When I saw that people were planning on bringing food, I complained to my boyfriend that I had nothing to bring since I found out about everything too late to cook or go to the store. I was going to meet his friends for the first time and show up empty-handed.

Me: well now I feel a little useless that everyone is bringing something and I’m just there to be fed and provided with drinks

Him: You bring joy to me 🙂

That message completely popped my PMS bubble of angst. It was so unexpectedly sweet and reminded me to start focusing on the good things in my life at that moment rather than everything that was stressing me out.” – queen_in_my_pictures

For couples who love to laugh.

“Ok, so my husband has these meaty, nubby fingers and sometimes isn’t the most accurate with his texting. I was feeling really blue and sad, and he tried to text me “I love you more than you know”, but it ended up coming out “I live you more than YOLO” and then I proceeded to laugh until I cried.” – dioxazine_violet

For couples who like to keep things short.

“You make me feel like I’m worth something” – PanicSong

“Love doesn’t even begin to describe it. You are my everything.” –
monotonouslullaby

“I get so fucking excited every time your name pops up on my screen.”- Sister_Winter

“Good morning my Aphrodite.” – Stephalopod

For couples with a lot to say.

“I rly do mean that you’re the greatest part of my life. I honestly can’t imagine living a life without you now. You make life so much better. You’re the one I trust above all others. The one who always makes me smile. The one who I feel is always there beside me. You rly are the world to me. And I couldn’t be happier. Nobody will ever come close to the place you hold in my heart. I know you are the girl I want to spend my life with.” –Luminaria19

“So I’m about to get up and get ready for work. I can’t tell you how much I hate leaving your side, and how much I just want to hold you while your sleep. You’re the most wonderful thing in my life, ladypage and I wish every day was our day off together. I’ll see you later in the afternoon. I love you very, very much, ladypage.”- ladypage16

“I still can’t believe that someone so perfect for me was so close to home. <3 I’m so happy to have met you and fall in love with you.” – Luminaria19

“But honestly, there’s a purity about you that just emanates. And I don’t know what it is, but I have this overwhelming feeling of peace when I talk to you. It’s kind of like if I died tomorrow I would be ok because I know someone like you exists.- Scarletlipstick

For the couple that’s completely happy.

“I’m so glad you happened to me. You make me a better person.” – rankly_birdie

“I like you the way you are and I think you’re perfect for me. You’re experiences and decisions shaped you into who you are right now and I love who you are so really it all worked out for the better.” – nottattooed

A Man Ripped Into a Woman For Not Wanting To Buy Him Red Lobster and Twitter Had Some Thoughts

A Man Ripped Into a Woman For Not Wanting To Buy Him Red Lobster and Twitter Had Some Thoughts

Red Lobster

*WARNING* a derogatory term casually used by the Twitter user profiled in this piece is in the exact opposite of our views and values*

Recently, a thread by @RoblesTeonna made the popular casual dining chain restaurant Red Lobster start to trend on Twitter. After Robles shared a text exchange between her and a man she was dating on social media, her 2,500 followers took to Twitter to express their opinions on the bizarre saga.

It all started when Robles posted a screenshot of a shocking interaction she had with a man she was seeing. In the text exchange, Robles shares some photos of delicious-looking tacos with a mystery man, asking him if he wants any. “I know you’re craving Red Lobster,” she says in the text convo. “But I also don’t have much money after paying my bills and it would just be easier on me”.

Instead of being grateful for Teonna’s offer to bring him food, the unidentified man instead responds callously, telling her not to “ask me what I want to eat [and] then tell me to pick something else ever again”.

Robles, understandably upset over the man’s rude response, tells him that she doesn’t like the way he’s speaking to her. “I’m offering to get you food & going out of my way to do so,” she explains to him. She then further explains that if he wants to continue to treat her so poorly, she’ll no longer associate with him.

The man takes his reaction even further by telling her that she shouldn’t have been trying to “play a position” she wasn’t “fit for”. Presumably, he is talking about the fact that she offering to buy him food and then later told him she didn’t have enough money for what he was asking for. “You’re clearly not on my level,” he told her. “And can’t afford to support a man of my caliber”. 

Needless to say, Teonna’s Twitter users had some strong opinions over this man’s entitled behavior. 

@RoblesTeonna’s post quickly went viral, racking up almost 37,000 likes, over 4,000 comments and over 8,000 retweets. Not only were her followers shocked by his surprising reaction to not getting Red Lobster, they were also shocked by his insistence that the woman he dates should “support” him–especially when that woman makes it clear that she’s short on cash due to paying her own bills. 

Although there is a pervasive belief that women resort to “hustling” men for dates in order to get free meals, the situation proves that the attitude of entitlement goes both ways. There are a myriad of different ways people of all genders use others to fulfill their own agendas. People were quick to point out this man’s hypocrisy with comments like, “Imagine demanding from someone else, what you can’t even provide yourself. Humans are exhausting”.

After @RoblesTeonna’s account of her experience with this man, the man decided to tell his side of the story. Spoiler alert: he does not come off as a hero.

After being contacted by someone via Facebook to address the situation, the man (who is identified as “Shawn”) explains that he and Teonna were not dating, although she “wanted to claim [him] as her man”. According to Shawn, he was not yet interested in Teonna, because “she’s not the only woman trying to impress [him]” and he “cannot just sit and give any woman a relationship with [him]”.

Thankfully, the entire internet had Teonna’s back enough to publicly explain the multiple reason why she’s better than this low-life man.

Contrary to what “Shawn” believes about himself, any person who treats another person like this (regardless of gender) is not worth the time of day. Periodt.

This person made a valid point about how this man was whining about something he could have easily provided for himself.

It’s obvious that this man doesn’t have the ability to provide for himself, so he relies on the women in his life to fill that need.

A lot of people were pointing out the absurdity of thinking that Red Lobster is the peak of American fine dining. 

It’s not like Red Lobster is some Michelin-rated gourmet food. It’s pretty much “Applebee’s Of the Sea”.

This person perfectly pointed out the hypocrisy of Shawn’s argument.

Presumably, a person of “high caliber” wouldn’t need to be supported, because they would have the resources to support themselves.

Even the reigning Queen of Twitter, Chrissy Teigen, got in on the fun:

Finally, a voice of reason among all this nonsense.
