"Considerate Text" Templates refer to a series of suggested messages one could send in order to ask for consent before sending other texts. After the I'm Actually At My Emotional Capacity text template grew popular as a meme in November of 2019, other suggested templates began appearing on Twitter, most notably Are You In the Right Headspace and "I've Been Having Some Sexual Thoughts About You."
The trend began with the "I'm Actually At My Emotional Capacity" tweet. On November 18th, 2019, Twitter user @fyeahmfabello tweeted, "I want to chat briefly about this text that I received from a friend last week." The message reads, "Do you have the emotional/mental capacity for me to vent about something medical/weight-related for a few minutes?" Within two days, the tweet received more than 17,000 likes and 5,000 retweets (shown below, left).
Later in the thread, the Twitter user wrote, "PS: Someone reached out and asked for an example of how you can respond to someone if you don’t have the space to support them. I offered this template." The tweet received more than 4,000 likes and 500 retweets in less than two days (shown below, right).
This led to several days of posts in which people posted the template with jokes about not answering the phone or sarcastically ignoring friends.
Are You In The Right Headspace
On November 28th, 2019, Twitter user @YanaBirt tweeted, "I just want to say, a lot of y’all dump information on your friends at the wrong time without their consent. If you know it’s something that could hurt them, ask permission before you decide to be messy. Please," sharing a text message template one could use to break bad news that read, "Are you in the right headspace to receive information that could possibly hurt you?" (shown below).
Similar to the "Emotional Capacity" tweet, Twitter users again joked about the template and the anxiety it would produce instead of the intended reassurance.
I've Been Having Some Sexual Thoughts About You
On December 2nd, 2019, Twitter user Suzannah Weiss tweeted a template text one could send before initiating sexting that read, "I've been having some sexual thoughts about you id like to share over text if you'd enjoy that."
As the third such "template" to gain popularity in the previous few weeks, Twitter users began commenting on the sudden influx. User @leyawn joked, "why does this keep happening. did you all drink the same contaminated water or something?," gaining over 80 retweets and 2,700 likes (shown below, left). User @LLW902 joked that the tweet was so on the nose with the recent tweets that it must be a troll (shown below, right).
Others tweeted parodies of the template. User @dylanmatt turned the template into a tweet about unionizing (shown below, left). User @ZmacZane tweeted a meme overload featuring the text (shown below, right).
