How to best respond to “What are you doing?” text

The best way to respond to this question depends on two things:

  1. The person you’re talking to.
  2. The context of the conversation.

If you’re talking to a friend or a love interest, you can obviously be more loose and lively in your response. Otherwise be a bit more chill.

Next, you want to pay attention to the context of the conversation. What was the vibe like recently?

Was it serious and logical, or playful and flirty? If you were being a little dull, shift gears and respond with a fun reply.

Was the vibe already very fun? Then it might be a good idea to answer with a more chill text.

Otherwise, you risk looking like a clown. And they’re not exactly known for being charming and attractive.
