Recent studies have shown that the use of punctuation in text messages can send most of us into an absolute meltdown.

From using fullstops to omitting emojis, the textual landscape is an absolute minefield.

And nowhere is this more prevalent than in exchanges which play out between us and our significant others.

From the one-word response to the passive-aggressive intro, we’ve rounded up the worst texts you can send or receive if you’re hoping to actually, you know, stay in your relationship.

1. The 'fake concerned' text

He said he'd be back after two pints, but six hours later you're crawling into bed alone.

"Hey babe, can you let me know you're OK when you find a second please?"

2. The 'one-word' text

When you're angry, but can't be arsed explaining yourself, so you go for the classic 'one word' reply.


3. The 'fullstop-laden' text

You'd rather die than let that eejit off the hook, so you send more fullstops than you can shake a stick at.

"OK. I don't mind. See you later."

4. The 'cryptic' text

You've decided he doesn't ask enough about your day, so you play him at his own game by spoonfeeding him information like you'll be charged for it.

"I don't know. Maybe 8pm. Oh, you don't know them. Where? Dunno."

5. The 'throwback' text

You're irked but can't decide why, so you rack your brain for something to fight about

"Remember that time you smiled at the girl on the Luas? Remind me again what that was about."

6. The 'drunk with the girls' text

You think you're looking sexy and being hilarious, but he thinks you sound drunk and are being ridiculous.

"Babe, remember the guy I used fancy? He's here and asked to buy me a drink. As if… lol… wait. Hello?"

7. The 'purposefully annoying' text

You know he's watching a match, but you don't see why he can't text at the same time.

"Who's winning? Anyway, will I get a blunt fringe or not? And did I tell you what your one in work said?"

8. The ' I didn't see it' text

He asked about plans you have no interest in, so you don't reply and then play the dumb card.

"And what time was that at, hun? Oh God, I don't know how I missed it…"

9. The 'awkward' sext

You think you're going to make his day with a random sext during the afternoon slump, and you get no reply.

"Eh hello? My bra? Write back!"




This just gets better and better.

Blac Chyna has released her finacé Rob Kardashian's number on Twitter, just days after the sock entrepreneur shared his sister Kylie's number onto the same site.

But Chyna apparently had a good reason for doing what she did – because he's still texting "females."

The reality star took to the social media site and simply wrote: "Rob Kardashian Number." And then wrote the ten-digit number beside it.

His mobile was disconnected less than an hour after she leaked it.

The soon-to-be mum-of-two then took to Snapchat to explain her actions.

In one video, Rob is standing beside her when she says: "To make sure my man's not texting no b*tches, just to be sure, just tweet his number out. How that feel Rob?!"

Rob then just replies: "It feels good."

She then shared another video, saying: "Since all these females want to keep texting his phone because they had his number before talking about, 'You good? You and Chyna good?' Naw, we're good, we're straight." she fumed.

We just don't even know how this is going to end.



Margot Robbie is one of our favourite stars at the moment, but we love her even more now that she's opened about her relationship with Prince Harry.

The Suicide Squad actress revealed that she's on texting terms with the young prince, and she even leaves him hanging sometimes (how ballsy!).

The pair first met at a party thrown by Suki Waterhouse a couple of months, and they have a few friends in common, including Margot's Suicide Squad co-star, Cara Delevingne.

"He's pretty quick on text actually," Margot told E Online. "Unlike me, I write back four days later, weeks later sometimes."

She's a lucky gal.


As controversial as their relationship is, it's clear that Tyga and Kylie Jenner are crazy for each other and we have to say that this is something we really didn't expect to happen. 

A 14-year-old girl, Molly O'Malia, has accused Tyga of messaging her "uncomfortable" texts, which is apparently what's to blame for Kylie breaking up with the rapper last November.

Molly held a press conference yesterday and hired celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred to fight her case. 

The aspiring model and singer explained that while she never met Tyga before, they traded texts and messages on Instagram until he suggested that they FaceTime. This is when Molly claimed that she felt uncomfortable and stopped all contact with the 26-year-old. 

The exchange between Tyga and Molly was cited in OK Magazine last November, where the school girl's picture was blurred. But Molly said that people still knew who she was because she has thousands of followers on Instagram. 

And despite the blurred photo, the teen also told the press that a lot of people recognised her and gave her negative comments for splitting Kylie and Tyga up. 

Molly said: "As a result of the story and the photo, I received a lot of negative attention, not only from people in my own state but from all over the place. I don’t deserve the negative attention I have been getting as a result of this photo.

"I would never have allowed OK Magazine or any other magazine to use them.

"I am speaking out today because I don’t want what happened to me to happen to any other young girl."

The press conference, which was live streamed through TMZ, saw her attorney, Gloria share a few words to the media: "She feels that she needs to speak out and so does her mom, people need to be accountable."

"I know that Tyga has music coming out this month, Gone Too Far, and I think he’s gone too far with this."

The rapper has now spoken out himself about the incident through his people, telling TMZ that yes, he did reach out to Molly, but only because his team wanted to sign her to their record label. 

Tyga's manager, Anthony Martini told the website that his team found out that Molly had a large musical following on social media and wanted her to join Last Kings Records

He then went on to say that Tyga was strictly business and completely PG when he was talking to Molly and according to texts obtained by TMZ, she claimed she was 17-years-old. 

Anthony also pointed out that things never got "uncomfortable" between them, and the hitmaker only wanted to FaceTime Molly to talk business and see her sing… as he sat in the studio with his producers. 



The winter chill has really set in and with the cold weather comes the dilemma of using your phone when your fingers are practically frozen.

We've all been there… you're out for a meal or a drink when suddenly you look up and everyone in your group (including you) is scrolling through Facebook on their phones. Awkward.

A barman in Whiskey Joe's pub in Loughrea, Co. Galway is offering a free drink to any punter who agrees to lock his and his friend's phones away at the bar for just 30 minutes this weekend.

The promotion will run from 8pm to closing time this Saturday night, in an attempt to encourage people to socialise with one another rather than getting lost in their Twitter feed.

In a post on the bar's Facebook page, Whiskey Joe's say they are "taking action over this epidemic of over usage" of smartphones in bars and restaurants.

The idea kicked off when one of the barmen noticed one girl sitting in silence with her drink as her three friends sat scrolling through their phones. "To me 3 of the 4 girls had missed the point in going out to the bar to socialise and to interact with not alone with their friends but also with the rest of the customers," said the barman.

What do you think – could your group of friends go without their phones for half an hour? 




The Jenner sisters, Kendall and Kylie, along with their older sister, Kim, have drawn some unwanted attention on themselves since last night’s MTV VMA Awards.

The trio, who attended the event together, were seen using their phones during a tribute for Ferguson last night.

The city of Ferguson, in Missouri, has been struck by tragedy since the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager who was fatally shot by a police officer.

The death of the teen has sparked outrage in the city which has resulted in riots and increased levels of violence.

At last night’s VMA’s, rapper, Common, lead a moment of silence for Michael Brown, whose funeral is being held today, and for peace all over the world.

Really not the best time to be caught on camera on your phone, as the girls were…

The internet has since responded the best way it knows how, with many people tweeting things like:

It will be interesting to see how the Kardashian camp deal with this major faux-pas…




If you’re one of the few people who follow the rules in the cinema and turn off your phone completely, you’ll be missing out if you go to see a film in China!

They are launching a new program where audience members will be able to send texts about the film which will then appear on screen – after they’ve been screened, of course. God knows what might pop up otherwise.

Apparently the ‘bullet screen’, as it is known, is already a reality in Beijing and Shanghai, but we sure hope it doesn’t come to Ireland. It’d be like when you can’t get the subtitles off the TV even though it’s in English, and then you can’t stop reading them even though there’s no need – SO annoying!

This is one advancement in technology we can definitely live without. Plus, if we weren’t under the constant threat of the usher coming up and asking us to put our phones away (oh, the mortification!) we’d probably be tempted to check Facebook every five minutes. The cinema is our only escape! Please don’t ruin it!



Richard Linklater is the director of the film Boyhood (which is meant to be very good by the way) and he really doesn’t like it when people talk or text during a movie. That is why he made this video offering advice about what he thinks you should do when someone just will not be quiet.

We think we’ll be sticking with the good old fashioned shushing technique, but watch the video to find a slightly more extreme course of action!
