Underwhelmed, overwhelmed. Why are they all over or under? Why can’t you just be whelmed? Sadly, this isn’t my original question. I heard someone mention it awhile ago, but I came to my attention again after hearing that someone was overwhelmed. Thus, my interest was peeked again. I have heard several opinions of what just a normal whelmed would consist of. Many people agreed that being whelmed would refer to being content with the amount of something. So I searched what it meant and here is what I got.
Whelmed: past participle, past tense of whelm (Verb)
So there you have it. Whelmed.
