Verb, portmanteau - To pretend to text someone or reply to someone's text message to avoid awkward situations. This happens most often when talking to someone you don't really know or when you don't want to look weird while waiting for the bus.
My crush, Addie, and I have run out of things to talk about so I will pretext to avoid any awkward silences.
1. When you send a text message and know what the reciever will reply. Therefore, you already write out (pretext) - and possibly save in drafts- what you will respond in return.
2. Could also be used in instant messaging by pre-typing a response.
X: "What are you doing tonight?" (asking even though they know)
X uses pretext and writes and saves to drafts- "Oh i see- me too."
Y: "Going to a movie."
X: sends the saved draft of "Oh i see- me too."
