So, you’ve been on a date or two with someone you like and things seem promising. Perhaps there was a flurry of initial flirty conversation, but now you’re trying to come up with a funny response to a “what’s up” text? Your date wants to stay in touch and let you know that they’re thinking of you, but they’re not sure what to say. So, now you face that frustratingly vague and open-ended text: “Hey, what’s up?”
The “what’s up?” text is a classic for a reason: it’s inoffensive; suitable for all occasions; and it puts the ball in the other person’s court, ideal for someone who doesn’t know what kind of mood their crush is in.

Don’t worry, we’re here to help! Here’re some ideas for flirty and funny responses to “what’s up?” that you can use the next time you’re not sure what to say.
