When He Doesn’t Text Back

So you really like this guy, and he seems to like you too. You decided to text him, but he doesn’t text you back. So now what are you supposed to do? It may not seem like a big deal, but especially at the start of dating, the small things matter.

Ever since texting has been around, it’s changed the way that dating works, and how people interact. It’s made flirting a whole lot more convient, that can be done at anytime of the day, morning and night. The only problem?

The fact that is so available has given us this extra expectation and extra reason to overthink that didn’t exist before. Now, if we go a day without receiving a text for someone, we tend to freak out, and it can completely ruin things.

If he doesn’t text you back, don’t automatically assume that he’s no longer interested in you, it can be very dangerous. Maybe he’s stuck at work in a meeting, maybe he ran into a friend that caught him by surprise. Maybe his phone just ran out of battery.

There are no shortage of reasons as to why he didn’t text you back, and most of them have nothing to do with you, so chill. There’s no need to do anything about it yet. Don’t double text him to make sure that he got your message or that everything is a ok. Don’t show him that you are insecure or needy, or even worse, rude.

And the most important, is to always remember our own worth. When someone doesn’t respond to us, we often feel like we are the one’s who are missing out. But don’t forget, that you are so valuable as well, and it’s just as much his loss too.

Take some time before reaching out to communicate again, and try to see if it was a message that really needed a response. If he is still interested in you, he will respond to you within the next few days, and he might even be more attracted to you after you waited for him.
