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.
