But do you think it is acceptable that dp texts his sons girlfriend and they put kisses at the end. She is 17.

Helloitsme87 Fri 03-Feb-17 22:50:46

Need more context

CookieLady Fri 03-Feb-17 22:53:09

Depends on what is written and how often they are texting each other.

Dilligaf81 Fri 03-Feb-17 22:57:28

I put kisses at the end of all my texts its just habit.
Depends if dh puts them on other txt and what was said. I imagine if your asking this you have other suspicions

Dilligaf81 Fri 03-Feb-17 22:57:40

Dp not dh

Everybody puts kisses on the end of all texts always now. Or this is how it seems to me. I get texts from my boss, my cleaner, my personal trainer all signed off with 'x'

The only person who doesn't do it, is my husband.

It's probably fine, op. I think it's just the way things are now.

Context is key here ...

I put 'xxx' almost automatically on text messages, mostly because I got into the habit when old phones had a character limit so longer messages required multiple individual texts so it was like a signal to say "This is the end of the message". Now I have to actively remind myself not to put it when I'm talking to my supervisor/boss but if you're not one of those people, you'll get the automatic 'xxx' and even if you are asupervisor/boss you may occasionally get the 'xxx' then an apology for the mistake.

Depends how often they talk,about what and whether your DP uses xxx as punctuation like i do or not. Most of my texts have an x at the end,regardless of whom I'm talking to.
I had to make a conscious effort not to use them on here grin

IMissGrannyW Fri 03-Feb-17 23:14:32

But you're clearly worried, OP.

kali110 Fri 03-Feb-17 23:23:57

I put x at end of my texts to everyone.

mummyof2pr Fri 03-Feb-17 23:26:36

My question is why is he even texting his sons girlfriend in the first place? Seems odd.

StillMaidOfStars Fri 03-Feb-17 23:27:27

I have never - NEVER - put a x at the end of a text. Annoyingly, my best mate appears to have acquired this bizarre behaviour in the last couple of years. Grr.

OP, apparently it could be normal. Why is your partner texting your son's girlfriend?

bumsexatthebingo Fri 03-Feb-17 23:27:36

It does seem almost normal to end messages with a kiss now though I only do it with family/good friends.
Context is key. Does he end messages to everyone with kisses? Are the messages themselves inappropriate?

HighbrowEyebrow Fri 03-Feb-17 23:28:07

Lots of people use xx as a full stop.

Depends on what else is in the messages, really.

FlyWaxSleepRepeat Fri 03-Feb-17 23:29:31

I find it weird that he's texting her at all, never mind with kisses on the end of the text.

TreeTop7 Fri 03-Feb-17 23:31:06

Depends on whether he ends his texts like that normally. Is there more to this?

RobinIsThicke Fri 03-Feb-17 23:32:14

Does sound abit strange to me on the face of things.

SundialShadow Fri 03-Feb-17 23:34:39

.... only if they are shagging each other grin grin

MsGameandWatch Fri 03-Feb-17 23:36:27

I think it's inappropriate.

jcne Fri 03-Feb-17 23:37:17

clumsily inappropriate if nothing else. need more info.

proudmum690 Fri 03-Feb-17 23:48:31

you can't make a conclusion from this alone, but as someone else said you probably have other suspicions. ask yourself: how often they are texting, what is the nature of their messages (flirty etc), what time they are texting each other, does your dp normally end their texts with "x" ??

there's a strong chance it might just be habit...

TiredAndRavenous Sat 04-Feb-17 00:10:05

My OH puts kisses on the end of EVERY text, Ones to my dad, his friends, his own Father! Aibu to think something's going on or he's obviously gay blushsmilewink


kali110 Sat 04-Feb-17 02:17:34

How long have they been together? I don't think it's weird for him to text if they've been together a while ( unless ofcourse it's flirty texts, or they're constantly texting, then that might signal something).

kali110 Sat 04-Feb-17 02:19:07

tired he's obviously gay grin
So is mine. He's so used to doing it at the end of my texts that he's put them on the end of texts to other people grin
I find it amusing.

I'm struggling to see why your DP would ever need to text his son's girlfriend.
