Here’s How to Respond to “WSG” Through Text! Responses to Use!

I have this friend Amy who asked me a good question the other day at work. She said, “Hey Ryan, what does ‘wsg’ mean and how should I respond to it via text?” Well, that’s a great question because I’ve been talking a lot about texting recently and just how complicated it can be sometimes! If you want to know how to respond to ‘WSG’ via text—we’re going to jump into it!

When someone sends you a text message that doesn’t sound like something you can fully comprehend (either through tone of voice or otherwise), it can be confusing. Often referred to as a ‘dry text,’ it’s when you really don’t know the entire emotion that’s part of the text message itself.

How should you respond to ‘WSG?’

What does “WSG” Mean?

Basically, if a friend or person says “WSG” it means, “What’s Good?” It’s another way of saying what’s up! For example, if you text your friend and ask them how their day is going—it’s pretty similar to saying, “What’s up on your end?”

The type of response the person is looking for is something that refers to what your day is involved with. Or what you’re focused on. You can easily just share what you’re currently doing or what you plan to do with your day/week.

In short, it’s like someone asking:

  • What are you doing?
  • What are you up to?
  • How is your day going?
