What It Means When He Texts You ’Sup?’ At 2 AM

You’re lying half asleep in your bed with your eyes glazed over, when suddenly you hear the familiar buzz of your phone. You shoot up instantly, your eyes now on high alert. You gingerly reach over to see who texted you, silently praying it’s him.

And it is him!

You thank the gods above and glance at your phone to see what he said. “Sup?”… That’s it. That’s it?! You glare at the three letters in front of you, as if your stare could magically change it to something more romantic. But, it doesn’t change, so you decide to slowly text him back. You think, maybe he wants to talk to you but just sucks at texting. Or maybe he’s shy and didn’t know what to say first. Maybe, this is his way of showing you that he actually has feelings for you.

You write back, “Hey you! How are you?” Smiling, you lay back in your bed, impatiently waiting for his response. An hour later, you still are met with silence. By now, it’s 3 am and you have to wake up early for class in the morning. You roll over, and fall fast asleep, dreaming of only him.

The next morning, you get a text back that was sent at 3:15 am. It says, “Good. Come over?”

And that’s when it hits you.

That’s when you finally realize it. He isn’t into you. He doesn’t even really like you. He just wants to get in your pants. For gods sake, he didn’t even have the decency to ask how you are!

So, when a guy texts you at 2 am with only a “Sup?”, just know that he probably only has one thing on his mind. And know that you are worthy of more than just a three letter question. You are so much better than that.

Don’t respond to the guys who only want to get to know your body, and not your mind. Don’t respond to his booty calls. Don’t even ask him how he is. Because the truth is, he probably has more than one girl he texts at 2 am. And some girls are too naive to understand that he’s just playing games.

So, please. For your own sake, don’t be naive. Don’t play along. Don’t respond and don’t dream of him anymore. He isn’t worth your time. He isn’t even worth your acknowledgment.

Know that when he texts you at 2 am, it isn’t about love. It’s just about sex.

One day, you’re going to find a guy that wakes you up with a “good morning” text every day and who sends you a “goodnight sweetheart” text every night. And you’re going to find a guy who values your brain just as much as your body.

My dear, you’re worthy of so much more than just a 2 am text.  TC mark

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
