How To Respond To WYD (What Are You Doing)

How you choose to respond when someone texts you ‘WYD’ really depends on how you feel about this person. You will respond differently if you like them, just want to be friends, or wish they’d leave you alone. 

Here are some of the best funny, flirty, and witty responses to WYD for guys and girls.

How To Respond To WYD (What Are You Doing)

How To Respond To WYD

1. Responding To A Friend

Texting with a friend is probably easiest as you can just be yourself, and you don’t need to try too hard. Responses to WYD, when you’re in the friend zone, could include any of the following: 

  • “I’m (insert what you’re literally doing, e.g., the dishes, errands, watching TV, etc.).”

Tell them what you’re doing – watching Netflix, chilling, shopping, etc. 

  • “Checking out some memes. Here’s one, have a look.”

Keep your conversation going by sharing a funny picture. Use a meme from your collection if you know what will make them laugh. If you are unsure, try finding one that makes you laugh on Instagram or Facebook.

  • “Nothing much. What’s up?

Keep it relaxed and throw the question back at them. 

2. Responding To Someone You Don’t Want To Talk To 

If you really don’t like the person, then you can either ignore the message or send them something that will stop the conversation and put them off.

  • “I was just about to go out, bye.”

 When you don’t like the person or do not feel like talking, using this abrupt answer is a good way to end the conversation. By doing this, you can quickly move on and get on with your day.

  • “I’m actually kinda busy right now.”

By sending this, you show them you are unavailable or not interested in chatting.

3. Responding To A Crush 

If you like the person or dating them, then you might want to be a bit flirty and try one of these:

  •  “I was just about to ask you the same thing.”

An effective way to turn the question back to the person is to ask them about themselves. This way, you have enough time to think of something to talk about, and it also shows that you’ve been thinking of them.

  • “My pet and I are just playing around. Would you like to meet him/her?”

For a guy who loves animals, this is the perfect response. Girls appreciate guys who have pets since they demonstrate that they are caring and sensitive to their needs. This gesture will let you know if your partner doesn’t like pets, which is good information to know.

  • “Trying to focus on work, but you keep running through my mind.”

It’s a flirty way of letting her know that you like her. This message is for you if you’ve already been on a date with her or if you’ve shown her you’re interested in her. You can make her feel good by letting her know that you are thinking of her even when she is not around.

  • “Trying to come up with some cool ways to ask you out. I’ll let you know when I find one.” 

It’s an excellent response when you want to ask your crush out or on a date. It gives that person a glimpse into your romantic intentions while letting them know you’re planning something.

  • “Having a great time with some of my friends. How are you?”

Your crush will see you as a social individual by mentioning your group of friends. This will lead them to believe that you’d do well in other social situations, such as group hangouts or a date with someone. For a more meaningful conversation, you can even elaborate on what you are actually doing.

  •  “I’m just here thinking about you.”

 It is a cute and thoughtful response that lets your crush/partner know you are thinking about them.

  •  “I’m watching [insert TV show/movie]. Have you ever seen it before?”

If you respond this way to a crush, it can give you some insight into their interests and show you whether you have similar tastes in television. If yes, you can discuss the show/movie. If it’s a no, you can use this opportunity to introduce them to something new or perhaps offer to watch it together.

  • “I’m missing you, as usual.”

The person will appreciate this sweet response if you’re already dating them. It shows that you care about the person and are always eager to be around them.

  •  “I’m thinking about going out to grab something to eat. Would you like to join me?” 

The tone of this response is relaxed and easy-going. This comes to good use when you randomly want to invite that person out. People don’t have much time to think about or get nervous when they receive last-minute invitations. You’ll probably get a yes to your impromptu invitation.

  • “Studying for Friday’s big test. What are you doing this weekend?”

You can send this text to your crush when you’re studying, doing homework, or doing anything else you feel is challenging. By mentioning the weekend, it is a good opportunity to ask them what they’re doing. This will hopefully lead to the two of you sharing your plans and possibly hanging out.
