What to do when someone gives you an out-of-the-blue “love you” for the first time as a pseudo-goodbye over IM:
Her: Whew! It is getting really late! I think I need to get to sleep before I start incoherently rambling about nothing
Me: Well, it’s exactly noon here, so I have no excuse for my incoherent ramblings
Her: Heh. Well, I will talk to you soon!
Me: OK ___, I’ll talk to you tomorrow!
Her: bye, Patrick!
Me: bye, ___
Her: love you
