What a horrible prank!
Comedian Nathan Fielder asks twitter followers to text their SO’s the line “I haven’t been fully honest with you’ and then give them the silent treatment for 1 hour.
If I got a text like that from my SO and then he refused to reply, I would be so worried and mad!
Here are some of the pics Fielder’s followers sent in.

It doesn’t sound like any of those were very good relationships to begin with. A) Because they all seemed to ‘know’ what issue the person wasn’t being honest about and B) because they were willing to break up over the text and then no response.

that’s so ridiculous. and terrifying. I would freak the hell out and f=definitely not see the humor in it.

Come to think of it, if my FI texted me that, I’d think he was going to make a joke… like “I haven’t been completely honest with you….”
“… I actually do like guacamole”.

@tallierand: See if my SO texted me that, I would be so worried because what could possibly be so big or so worrisome that he didn’t feel he could tell me about it?

@tallierand: +1 these are clearly not healthy relationships in the first place. If someone texts you that, you should have no conclusions to jump to!!

If my FI did this I would know he was joking, because that’s just how he is. He’s done stuff like “I have something to tell you, but I don’t want you to get upset” and then after prying it out of him he’s like “I ate a quarter of a container of icing in one sitting!” Yeah so this wouldn’t work on me, lol.

This is hilarious though. I would NEVER do that to my SO. I wouldn’t even do it to my best friends, that’s just cruel & I care about them to much to worry them. They would ALL completely freak out worrying that something is really wrong.

Is that realistic, though?
Someone texts something like that, and we assume in good faith that they are telling the truth, right? So your mind naturally goes looking for an explanation. And then, when they don’t get a response after (they think) their partner tried to initiate a difficult conversation, of *course* they’re going to assume it’s really, really bad … and continue to go looking for an explanation to make sense of the evidence they see.
Now, clearly, those relationships have some issues – but I bet almost ANYONE’s partner would jump to unflattering conclusions under those circumstances.
Ugh, what a terrible thing to do, or to suggest, as a “prank.”

@Galang_Gyal: That is too cute!
I must admit, I think those are hilarious! But yeah, not very nice.

@KCKnd2: I guess maybe it depends on how you normally communicate. Like, FI and I would probably never broach a serious topic via text, so I wouldn’t assume that it was something serious if he sent me that..
