What does Why Mean in Texting?

In texting “why” can be sent as a one-word text that depicts shock as a reaction to someone’s message. Of course, you can use “why” in a sentence regularly, but a message containing just that one word holds more importance, and can make you seem more serious and worried about something.

Sometimes, all you need is a simple “why” to get your point across. No other words are necessary.
