    Who knows... he may be doing something you don't want to know about while texting

    He's checking in because he is interestedóinterested, that is, in checking in, having you as someone he can check in with, banter with, shoot off a gym selfie to. It's not malicious. It's pretty typical in the age of smartphones. If he was interested in something aside from that, you'd have met up for a drink, gone shopping together, whatever.

    So now you have all the power. You get to decide if this interests you or not. You can cut it off, you can let it fade, you can let it simmer, you can enjoy the poking and poke back, you can "push" him a bit to "test" how he responds. These exchanges are really only mysterious if we want them to be, if we make assumptions about someone's intentions instead of just focusing on what they are offering and doing.

    "In fact, a new study says that 75 percent of Americans admit to using their smartphones while on the toilet. Toilet texting is particularly popular among those 28 to 35-years-old, with a reported 91 percent of that age group admitting to the habit."

    Canít blame you for doing a face-palm. I rolled my eyes when I read this ^^^.

    Because Iím sometimes a smart-a$$, Iím curious to know how heíd respond if, the next time he texts you see how youíre doing, you reply with, ďNot bad texting buddy...Ē, and just leave it at that.

    Iím not recommending that you should do this, but if I were in your shoes, not gonna lie, Iíd be tempted. :)
