Do They Really Want To ‘Catch Up’ or Just Say?

Well, we have discussed better responses for both cases, when you’re also interested in catching up with someone and when you’re not. 

Still, you also have to know in which sense that person said so.

When someone says ‘We should catch up’ or ‘We need to catch up’ that means they have some plan to do together.

Maybe, they have so many things to talk about in person.

Whereas, the phrase ‘Let’s catch up someday’ is not always an inviting gesture, but a way to escape.

This also means that ‘I’m fed up with you, have no time and interest to meet you.’

They say someday, not a specified time, which means they’re just saying it. 

When someone says We should catch up

To know what they mean by it, listen to their tone when someone shares interest to catch up with you. 

When they’re truly interested, they may sound excited and also ask for the time and place to meet up. 

Else, you could ask indirectly ‘Okay so, what are you doing this weekend?’ to see how they reply. 

And, when they excuse something like ‘I’ll tell you about it’ or something, it means they have no interest to catch up with you.

But, they just want to get rid of you.
