Often a message or email can bring about an awkward and uncomfortable situation or circumstance in life, which we cannot avoid. When someone sends you a "I miss You" and you reply mirroring the feeling. But sometimes or for some people you don't want or wish to reply with a 'miss you too'. This creates an awkward situation. The best way to respond is to be gentle, polite, and tactful but keep it short and sweet. So, good luck!

Why you may want to reply short?

The list can be endless! Depending on who the sender is or your history with them can cause you texting anxiety, leaving you exasperated or in a lurch. An affectionate message may come from someone like an unrequited crush or ex, your sibling or cousin you don't see eye to eye with, an old friend you’ve lost touch with for whatsoever reason or even an old coworker. Staring at the screen not knowing how to go about it is one of the first emotions we get ushered with followed by discomfort, rage, or just simply nonchalant. Try to have positive thoughts while handling this.
