If a man does not respond to your texts, he is not interested
Not everything is about you. This is both a good thing and a bad thing. On the one hand, you understand that the world doesn’t revolve around you and you are upset because you don’t get all the attention you want. But on the other hand, you are also not responsible for all the bad things that may happen to you. Sometimes you just have bad luck and it’s not your fault. So you don’t always have to worry every time a guy simply stops responding to your texts. Sometimes it won’t be your fault. In fact, many times, the reason he is not responding to you has nothing to do with you.
1. He is too immature to allow himself to respond to you in a prompt manner.
There are some men who are so immature that they think love is a game – and that the act of responding to a text message too soon would be tantamount to losing the game. He still treats love as a kind of competition and is trying to keep score with you. He doesn’t want you to think he’s too eager to answer you, and so he makes you wait for a few days. Sometimes, he would even wait for you to send him a follow-up message before he actually replies to you.
2. He is so selfish as to be too lazy to let you know he is not interested.
Sometimes a guy simply won’t be interested in you. And that shouldn’t be his fault. However, it is his fault if he keeps leading you on; if he keeps keeping you on a leash. If he is not interested in you, you should have the courage to let him down gently instead of ignoring him completely. He shouldn’t be okay with leaving you hanging like this.
3. He’s just terrible at following things up.
Some men just have terrible follow-through. And again, that’s not your fault. It’s their fault. Some men are good at starting things, even though they don’t finish them. And that can happen a lot even in relationships. Just because he showed you interest in the beginning, doesn’t mean he will see things through to the end with you. He is not guaranteed anything.
4. He is dealing with a lot of doubts and insecurities.
He may not think he is good enough for you. Or maybe he is overthinking things and just doesn’t know how to respond or communicate with you in general. Regardless, he lets his insecurities keep him from actually responding to your text message.
5. He’s been too busy to respond and thinks too much time has elapsed.
Sometimes a guy will just be a little too busy. Maybe he’s too consumed with things he has to do at work. Or maybe he’s going through some personal family issues that have caused him to be a little antisocial for the time being. Or maybe he’s just too stressed about having to deal with other issues for now. Regardless, he has waited too long to respond to you and now feels that it would be really awkward and rude to respond now that it has been too late. So rather than go through the hassle of explaining himself, he would rather not answer you at all.
These are just a few examples. But there could be a myriad of other reasons why a guy might not trust your text message. In any case, you should follow up with him; but only to a certain extent. You don’t want to be overdoing it, either. You have to get to a point where you put your foot down on yourself. If he is not responding to you, then maybe he is not the right guy for you and you just need to move on. There are plenty of other guys in the world who would be willing to give you their attention. You don’t need to keep wasting your time by staying hung up on this particular person. Sometimes things just aren’t meant to be.
