8 Reasons Why He Hasn’t Responded to Your Text

8 Reasons Why He Hasnt Responded to Your Text

You texted a guy you like and he hasn't replied. If it's only been five minutes or an hour, there is no reason to worry yet. People don't always reply to texts as soon as they come in. Nevertheless, here are 8 common reasons why the guy you're interested in might not be texting you back.

1. You are bugging him

You sent him a text an hour ago and when he didn't reply within five minutes you texted him again. You still haven't heard anything, so you text him again every ten minutes to make sure he's okay. That's why he hasn't texted you back. You are impatient and won't stop bugging him until he answers. He's not going to answer if you're too needy.

2. You aren't mysterious

You text him throughout the day telling him everything you're doing, even when he didn't ask. He doesn't need to know when you left class for a break, went to lunch, or are on the bus going home. Stop telling him what you're doing. Guys like a little mystery. If you text him every hour to tell him what you're doing, he doesn't really need to reply, does he?

3. He's busy

This is a legitimate excuse. He might just be busy. He could have a life that you don't even know about. His work schedule may have changed or he started playing basketball in the evenings. Just because someone has a phone doesn't mean they are connected to it 24/7.

4. He forgot

This is another legitimate excuse. If you reply to texts within milliseconds, he might decide to wait until later to reply and then he just forgets. The next time he texts you wait a while before you reply. Then when he gets your text he will be a little more interested in replying sooner.

5. He's not into you

A guy who is really, really into you will text you back. If he's not big on texting, he will call you. A guy who is interested in a girl will find a way to get in touch with her instead of making excuses.

6. He has a girlfriend

You met a great guy at a bar on Saturday night, but he isn't replying to your texts. He might have been enjoying a boy's night out and didn't intend to meet women. He probably already has a girlfriend and didn't want to be mean by denying you his number. Erase him from your contact list.

7. You send novel-length texts

Texts are meant to be short and sweet. If you're sending long texts that are better suited for email, you'll probably not hear back from him. He probably doesn't want to read that long-winded text to begin with, but he'll want to reply to it even less because he knows you'll be expecting a similar response and that's not going to happen.

8. You are moving too fast for him

You just met him last month and you're already trying to schedule dates with him weeks from now. This will scare a guy off. If you want to keep his interest, you need to slow down. A guy doesn't want to think you're trying to rush him into a serious relationship before he's ready. Let HIM ask you out on dates.

Become a smarter texter and you might just hear back from the guy you like. If you need to beg him to answer your texts, realize he's not really into you and move on.
