Ask Away...: Why Guys Take So Long To Text You...

Why Guys Take So Long To Text You...

Why Do Guys Take So Long to Text You?
After a blind date, which goes absolutely perfect, you get home while high on life and you expect a text from the guy.  You go to bed, and when you wake up, you immediately check your phone, but no text!!  Of course you think the worse!  He must not like you, or maybe he has other girls he is talking to.  But in reality, he just went home, sat down to watch the game, and fell asleep on the couch.

You see, men are slower on schedule than women.  We always want to plan the next thing, whether it’s a date night, a get together with friends, an outfit, a routine, whatever it is, most of us girls are on point when it comes to planning.  Men just don’t think like that and tend to only think a few hours or even just one (hehe) ahead.  

Now don’t get me wrong, some guys think just like girls, but most don’t, so with most guys you will play the guessing game and have a few days worth of butterflies in your stomach wondering what he is thinking. 

So..what you should do in a case like this?
Keep Busy

Clean, watch movies (they distract you from YOUR life)
Do crafts or hobbies
Get together with friends and DON’T talk about the guy 24/7, keep your mind off it!

Whatever you can do to pass the time, do it!  Don’t blow up his phone immediately.  Appoint a friend to be your phone buddy so whenever you get the urge to call or text, you call or text her instead and she can walk you through it. 

If you don’t hear from the guy by the next evening, send a simple text like “Hey thanks again for the great dinner last night.  I hope you had as much fun as I did!”  If you end it in a question, you are just going to torture yourself as you wait for an answer.  This kind of response is open ended so he almost HAS to respond.  Another good one is: “It was great meeting you last night at Heather’s party! I hope you had as much fun as I did!” Then leave it to him to write back. And if he doesn’t…move on… you just met him, and this is crazy…. But seriously!  If a guy ignores you in the beginning what makes you think he’ll be worth your time when things get serious?  So just move on and make sure your girlfriends hold you to it!!
