After two days of waiting and wondering why he hasn’t texted (and stuffing my face with fries in the process), I decided to consult J, one of my best guy friends who’s also the sexiest man on earth (J, I’m sure you loved that).
And I’m glad I did that, because it gave me some really useful insights on what goes on in a man’s mind when he doesn’t text right away. I’m summarizing my conversation with J into a list of Frequently Asked Questions as to why he hasn’t texted:
We had a good time, and he did seem interested, but why hasn’t he texted me?
Well, it depends on the guy. Every guy has different rules. Some might text the next day. Some might choose to wait a few days.
But if he likes me, shouldn’t he text me everyday?
Do you expect him to do that? Because not every guy will. Some guys prefer to do as little messaging as possible, so that the conversation doesn’t become boring. If you’re texting all day, you can run out of things to say.
Could it be that I did or said something to turn him off?
Usually it’s not about you. It’s more about them. Since you don’t know what they have going on in their lives.
So it’s possible that he wants to see me again, even if he hasn’t texted?
Sure. Just give it a few days.
My conversation with J was really eye-opening and made me realize that I was obsessing for no good reason.
First of all, why did I expect a guy I had just met to suddenly start texting me everyday?
Secondly, even if he did do that, wouldn’t the fact that he was ‘too keen’ turn me off anyway?
And finally, what possessed me to tie my self esteem to a text message from a guy?
Having realized all of that, I decided to get a grip and remove this obsession from my mind space. And well, it was at that point where I stopped waiting & checking my phone, that I finally got that text from him 😉
I hope this post is useful for all of you who’s been wondering why he hasn’t texted. I think the most important thing to remember is not to doubt yourself, ever!
P.S. If you have any messages or questions for J, feel free to leave them here and I’ll make sure he gets them 🙂
