Deciphering his texts

Posted: Updated:
MYFOXNY.COM -

OK, ladies: a lot of us have been there, you meet a guy, you give him your number and then he texts you. But sometimes that text can be a complete mystery.

That is where Lisa Winning and Carrie Hendershott McDermott come in. They founded HeTexted.com.

"We wanted to have a q and a service where girls could post guys' texts and have instant crowd source feedback," Winning said.

And post they have. In the site's first couple of weeks membership exploded from 35 to tens of thousands.

"We have three new users signing up any minute," Winning said.

Users with burning questions who want to know: "he says he likes me… kind of… is he into me?"

The texts range from the ambiguous to just plain weird.

Carrie's favorite is the text from a guy at 2:30 a.m. with a picture of two strudels and a call to share them. "Who gets a strudel booty call?" she said.

Once the texts are uploaded anyone can weigh in by voting and commenting.

But you don't have to trust the masses. The site allows you to go straight to the source by asking a "bro" and emailing one of HeTexted's expert guys.

For some visitors the site provides comic relief. Some of the texts are pretty outrageous and others are pretty relatable.

But the girls are convinced their clients are getting what they come here for.

It's free relationship advice for the 21st century, at least for now. The girls are already developing a fee-based version.

Guys, stay tuned: SheTexted.com is coming soon.
