LOL! This is how a text message convo would look if someone actually replied back to your fake text message while feeling awkward! I'm not going to pretend I've never done this... at least pretended to be busy on my phone. Have you?

    Many times--Dial-A-Prayer worked well, as did NOAA weather reports, and pre-recorded court case updates for jury pool attendance..good numbers to keep on speed dial, you know? just for those times when an incoming call can save you?.It's easy to feign rapt attention and insert a few well-placed "OK' I'll check on that", "Ha Ha Ha you're so funny" " Sounds like a day I'd have" "Aunty Grace had a stroke? She's in intensive care !?" "Eddy would go..."---you get the idea.

    I've never pretended to. I'll just randomly text someone or get on facebook or something! I never call people, though. I hate talking on the phone!

    I've had whole pretend conversations walking through the store just so I won't have to talk to anyone I might know. "What? She did that! No way! What did you do after that..."

    I have also set an alarm, that sounded like a phone call, to go off 15 minutes after meeting someone new - - just in chase I wanted an escape.

    Don't let yourself *start to* feel awkward!

    Put on a smile and just start a conversation with someone.

    Pretty soon, it may go from meaningless to interesting.

    Haha yeah ! I used to take private tuitions with a bunch of snobby kids, I would pretend I was texting so that I don't look like I'm a loner. Wow good memories.

    Haven't we all? :) I really don't do it much, but if I'm feeling kind of awkward and left out in a social situation, I may whip out my phone and pretend to be busy to try and draw attention away from myself. It's silly, but it makes you feel a bit better when you're feeling uncomfortable.

    It kinda lame, actually. It throws mixed signals too. Once upon a time, when a girl fiddled with her phone while talking to a guy it meant she wanted his number. Now-a-days (I know, I sound like an old man!) email is so good, women can pretend to be online to avoid men. How rude! What ever happen to the days women simply rejected guys she didn't like?

    I ride the public transit, and one day while waitiing for the bus, some guy in a truck kept circling the block, so I just pulled out the cell phone, and it worked, he left.

    Not because i felt awkward but to avoid talking talking or looking up at my mom or dad when I get home from partying. Also avoiding people I don't like and getting into a conversation with them, which doesn't always work.

    And anyways, it is very impolite to read and more so to answer your message when in company, it means they are not important to you. I personally ask to be excused so that i can see if it is an emergency like the house burning down and then wait to answer until I have time. That is when receiving a message, pretending is the worst
