LEAVE HIM ON RED

Leave him on read. It’s internet slang for when someone who doesn’t deserve your attention texts you, and you see the message but don’t respond. But if you read between the lines (or lack thereof), to leave someone on read is about much more than not texting back. It means knowing your worth enough to be able to recognize when someone else doesn’t, and having the strength to move past what’s holding you back.

We interviewed three badass women who stepped up and left someone on read when the situation called for it, be it in the bedroom or the boardroom. Check out their stories below, where you’ll find it hard to ignore the red sandals from our Leave Him On Red Edition (pun very, very much intended).

LA LA ANTHONY
Actor
On how you can tell people are worth not leaving on read...

"You definitely can feel great energy. Your spirit feels lighter, you’re in a good place, and you feel happy. It’s just a feeling. I always know when I have great people around me, because I feel good and confident and positive about myself."

ANGIE HARMON
Model, Actor
On how leave him on read applies to all types of relationships...

"We all have those relationships in business where you are being disrespected by someone. The same thing with friends. You can be loyal and driven and passionate about whatever relationship that is. But if the other person isn’t willing to believe in themselves as well, and take on their side of the relationship, there’s a point where they have to move on."

DENISE VASI
Maed founder
On the first time she heard the term leave him on read...

"I did that. I’ve been doing that. I’ve been leaving him on read for years. Did I create that? Leave him on read to me, means, slimming down the guest list, so to speak. It means I don’t do that, I don’t stand with that. It means no. No thank you."
