On Wednesday’s The Tonight Show, Aziz Ansari and Jimmy Fallon gave awkward romantic texts the dramatic reading they deserve.

Reading from thirsty texts the show says are completely real, Ansari resumes his role as a renowned online dating expert. In one of the exchanges, Ansari reads a lengthy text from a forward-thinking man who envisions a beautiful future filled with happiness with the sweet girl he just met.

This isn’t the first time Ansari has tackled text miscommunication on the dating game front.

Watch above.
