He Rarely Initiates Texts, However, He Replies Right Away

If he rarely initiates texts but replies right away, there is a good chance that he is not particularly interested in you.

The fact that he rarely initiates texts is indicative of a lack of strong or even true interest. In a situation like this, he is basically biding his time, preoccupied with other things.

You are rarely in his thoughts until of course, he receives your text. Now, he replies. This is one scenario.

Another scenario could be that he is allowing you to be in the driver’s seat. In essence, he is letting you do the lion’s share of the work. This is not a good sign. Guys typically like the hunt.

That is how they are wired biologically. When he is no longer hunting, he is not at his best. He is basically going through the motions. This indicates a lack of true interest.

When a guy is really interested in a girl, he will hunt. He will work hard to impress her. A lot of that has to do with taking the initiative and texting her.

If you are the one primarily doing all the texting, he is not hunting. If he is not hunting, he is not hungry. Again, he may respond to your advances but he will do very little to move it along.

You have to decide whether you are okay with this. You may think that as long as you show interest and text, he will eventually come around.

Unfortunately, in cases like this, the guy will just remain passive unless you force his hand.

One of the best ways to force his hand is to stop initiating the texts. He will notice that you are missing and will begin to wonder or worry about why that is.

He may get into hunting mode at this point and start taking initiative by texting you first. It takes courage for you to do this but if you want him to start coming after you, you may have to force his hand and show him that you are worth hunting.

  1. Make the guy work for you . If you don’t he will not appreciate you. He will think you are easy and get bored.

  2. what if he flirted got my number and pursued me and he lives down the hall and we hungout a few times and also hungout last yr and he keeps making a plan and breaks some….but we text and its mostly me who texts first…what should I do, im 51 he is 50 and never married ………im so upset I like him a lot….all I ever got was a kiss on cheek and bear hug…hes away all weekend too…..he says im very pretty then stopped flirting then calls me a good woman friend….

  3. Hi jan,

    He called you “a good woman friend,” lets you initiate most texts and has repeatedly planned and broken dates.

    These are all signs that he is not romantically interested in you.

    He may love flirting with you but he has shown that he isn’t willing to take it any further than that.
