If you've picked up the October/November issue of J-14, then you know Austin Mahone is no stranger to texting trauma. The heartthrob opened up to us about what a tough time he has expressing himself through text messages.
"I hate when I'm texting a girl and I look at [what I wrote] and realize it didn't come out right," he revealed exclusively to J-14. "I wish I could just take it back. But once I send a message, it's out there forever and I just think, 'Aw man, I just sounded so stupid.'"
Like most of us, Austin also has problems being patient when he's waiting for a reply to his message!
"When I text a girl and she doesn't text me back for 30 minutes or 45 minutes, it drives me nuts," he told us. "If I like a girl, I want her to text me back right away!"
Since the "What About Love" singer is on the road a lot and doesn't see his friends and crush every day, he takes texting pretty seriously. Earlier today he tweeted:
When I text you, it's because I miss you. When I don't text you, it's because I'm waiting for you to miss me!— Austin Mahone (@AustinMahone) October 7, 2013
When I text you, it's because I miss you. When I don't text you, it's because I'm waiting for you to miss me!
It sounds like Austin might have learned something from his previous texting mishaps!

Respond when you get a text.
Austin gets seriously annoyed when he texts a girl and she doesn't respond. "It's like, 'You have time to Tweet but you don't have time to text me back?' That's kind of lame," Austin exclusively tells us.
