Wink How often do guys text the girl they like - March 18th 2010, 05:28 AM

I am curious. This guy that I don't really know started IMing me on facebook three days ago. I am interested in him (I don't know him well enough to say whether I like him or not - oh and we do have some friends in common, so I've seen him around). Anyway, we ended up talking for a long time and he ended up asking me for my number at the end of the conversation. He texted me the next night for a while while he was out to dinner with his friends. We talked for a while then and it seemed to go well - he laughed at a lot of my texts (in a good way, hah) and was being friendly.

Then today he didn't text me. Should I be worried or am I over-analyzing the situation? I just really want to talk to him again, but I don't want to seem too eager by texting him right away and I can't now because it is 11:00 pm were I am. So is it a bad sign that he didn't text me again today or does it seem to be going well?

**We are both in high school - sophomore

Should I text him or should I wait for him to text me again? Some people say to play games and let him chase you, but others say to take the initiative and text him. Which should I do?

I wouldn't be too worried about it. =) Maybe his cell phone died, and he couldn't re-charge it until later. Maybe he just had a super-busy day, and he didn't have time to send you a text message.

I'm not a big fan of playing "hard-to-get"... so I'd go ahead and text him tomorrow.

Yeah in my experience guys aren't as glued to their phones as us girls and if he's not had time, he probably hasn't considered texting you but that doesn't mean he doesn't want to text you.. it just means he hasn't.

I'm not a fan of games. I think that's all very well if you see the person you're 'chasing' as some sort of 'prize' but you have to remember that you're setting the bar for any potential relationship. So just give him a text! Haha

i agree with both posts above.

Guys are all different when it comes to texting and stuff, my boyfriend constantly text me everyday and there hasn't been one day in the past year where we haven't text eachother. Whera's guys i've dated in the past wouldn't text me for days or even weeks on end!. it depends on the guy.

In my opinion, all seems to be going well for you two! he text you WHILST he was with his mates, thats a really good sign!.

i wouldn't worry too much about the fact he didn't text you for a bit,some guys are like that.

I wouldn't worry about it. Like others said, he may have been busy or not been able to for some reason. Or he may even be waiting for you to text to see how interested you are. I wouldn't try playing any kind of games. Honestly, if a girl did that to me, I'd assume she wasn't interested and move on.

Just try texting him when you get a chance to and see what happens. I hope it all goes well! PM me if you need anything.
