What Does It Mean When A Girl Says K?


Women tend to say a lot of things that we have to sit and figure out. They are like puzzles that need to be solved on a daily basis. Especially when they start saying stuff to you that could mean all kinds of different things. Where do you start? How do you figure out what these things mean?

It seems like you have to turn into a scientist just to solve whatever they throw your way.

Luckily for you, you have us to help you figure out what a girl means when she says these types of things. You may find yourself needing even more help when it comes to identifying what a one word message or response means.

Such as when a woman says something like, “K.”

It’s such an abrupt message to receive.  How on Earth are you supposed to know what she could possibly mean?

Let’s break it down for you.

What “K” Means:

There are a few different things that K could mean. It is really about reading the context of the situation. Doing that will ultimately help you to identify what is making her say this word to you.

Here are some of the things that women mean when they say “k”, whether in text or in person.

She’s Angry:

Ah, yes, the dreaded “k” message when she is angry with you. This is the number one reason that girls say this. It’s because they are very angry or upset with you. Have you recently done or said something wrong/offensive? Think hard about it, because if you have, then that is probably why she is responding to you in this way. Often she will be so angry with you that she doesn’t want to say anything more. She feels as if saying the one letter word will get you to understand that she is upset with you. She will not tell you what the reason is and that is why she has only sent you one word.

She’s Disappointed:

She might send you the word “k” or say it to you when she is feeling disappointed in something. This doesn’t necessarily mean that she is disappointed in you. She might say it if the two of you are talking about something else and she is feeling let down.

She Made A Typo:

There is a chance that she said it by mistake. She may have meant to say okay or ok and just failed to spell it out.

She Was In A Hurry:

When a girl says “k” it does not always mean that she is upset or angry at you. Once in awhile it can mean that she was just busy or in a hurry and didn’t want to spell out okay or even ok. It doesn’t seem like it’d be that hard to do, but imagine she is at work or talking to someone and doesn’t want to seem impolite. So think about what she may doing at the time the text was spent. Ask yourself if there may be a reason she would need to type fast.

She’s Lost Interest:

How well do you know her? Are you two just getting to know one another? That may be why she is suddenly sounding so distasteful in her response to you. There may be a point where you will want to stop conversation entirely and give her a chance to text you instead of you texting her. This will help you to know whether or not she has lost interest in discussion with you. If she hasn’t, she will end up texting you after a couple of days. However, if she doesn’t, then you can be sure she was never that interested in talking to you in the first place and it’s time to move on!

She’s Telling You To Screw Off:

This will be the reason behind her message if the “k” does not correlate with what you had said prior.

I.e: You: “Hey how are you doing? Those exams were hard. That professor is such a jerk!”

Her: “K.

That doesn’t make much sense to your statement. That is when you know she is telling you she doesn’t want to continue the conversation with you. She isn’t into what you are saying to her and most likely never will be.

It’s Out Of Habit:

There are certain people who say “k” because that is what they are used to saying. You will notice that some people always use it as a response instead of typing out anything else. This may just be a preference. The best way to figure out if this is the reason why she is saying it, is to think about how often she says it. If it is more than a few times as a response to things, then she probably says it out of habit.


  1. I think that this is pretty good the only time i use “k” is when I’m angry or just don’t want to talk. Like last night i got into a fight with my ex because he broke up with me for another girl and i was so mad

    • Thank you for sharing your insights. Allow thoughts of your ex to fade. A new door has opened and you can move in a positive direction. Treat everyone in your life with kindness and compassion. Have a great day, Krystal!

    • There may be a variety of reasons for her response. She may have wanted to talk more. She may have been tired and ready to sleep. She may have felt that the conversation was over and there was nothing else to say. Speak with her about and see how your conversation goes. There is no reason to overthink her response. Have a great day, Bp!

  2. K is just a short term for saying that she received the message. Like ok/k or read it/got it.
    Try not to read too much into things. If she was angry she more than likely would either not respond or say something else rather than ok/k?
