It really is a nuisance when someone takes light years to respond to a text message when really, in this day and age, it probably takes about 20 seconds to reply to a text within receiving it. And we’ve all done it. Nonchalantly just opening a message and planning to reply to it when we’re done at the gym or when we’re home from hanging with our friends. But then boom – hours go by and you suddenly forgot to reply to the message. And you’re suddenly the asshole.
Now don’t get me wrong – there could be many factors affecting tardiness of a response and I get that. You had an appointment at the bank. You had to walk your cat. You were debating which sauce dip you wanted with your nachos. But.. let’s be real. I’m going to go ahead and call it and say about 90% of the time; if your texts are going unheard or takes hours or even days to get replied too, trust me when I say this, it’s not them, but it’s more than likely you. And you’re honestly probably a really rad person but clearly it wasn’t being put forth.
With the help of some great friends sharing some stories of their experiences, I’ve come up with a list of why a girl probably stopped replying to your messages (or phone calls, subliminal messages, handwritten love note in a glass bottle, whatever floats your boat.) Get ready to be ENLIGHTENED!
1. She’s receiving the same messages from many other guys.
So young Jedi, I’m almost sure the girl you’re going after has probably a lot of other guys after her. And when this is the case, she’s probably getting a lot of the same messages – which is why your “let’s go grab a drink” or “wanna hang out?” message is going unreplied. Now I’m not saying go all Edgar Allen Poe in your approach but find a way to make yourself stand out. How? You’re a smart guy (or girl……?) You’ll figure it out.
2. You’re probably too awesome for her.
