If your boyfriend hasn’t texted you, it may be because he is legitimately busy with something or that he is losing interest.
There is obviously a time frame on this.
Sometimes, it is easy to allow anxiety to get the best of you to the point where you forget that not all that much time has elapsed since he texted you last.
If he hasn’t texted you in a few hours, you shouldn’t panic. Again, he could be busy, napping or simply preoccupied.
If he hasn’t texted you in a few days, there may be cause for concern.
Have you two been in an argument recently that ended without resolution?
If that is the case, he may not be texting you for that reason.
In a situation like this, you should stay calm.
One of the biggest mistakes people make in this situation is panic and start calling or texting their boyfriend frantically.
You shouldn’t do this.
When guys get angry, they typically need some time to cool off afterward.
They may go on a video game playing binge or hang out with friends.
He is calming himself down during this period.
It could take a few days for this to happen.
The good news though is that he will calm down, start missing you and text you.
This is why it is so important to simply let him be during this time and not try to force the issue.
If you start frantically texting him or asking friends about his whereabouts, that could actually make him more angry because that will be a reminder of the dispute you two had.
You don’t want him to dwell on that.
Now, you will also have to consider the possibility that he is losing or has lost interest in you.
It is not unusual for a boyfriend to avoid texting you all of a sudden due to a loss of interest.
This is a common occurrence.
When a guy loses interest in his girl, he may not know it yet, but he has started to do other activities without her in it.
He may start hanging out with his friends more.
He may start a hobby that consumes him.
He is doing all of this stuff but may not be aware at the time that he is doing it as a result of waning interest in his girlfriend.
Indeed, to an extent, he may even be in denial about all this.
These are all behaviors to watch for.
If this is the case he will either eventually let you know that the relationship is over or he will just stop responding to your texts entirely.
That’s just something you would have to accept.
Oftentimes, a guy doesn’t come right out and let you know what he is feeling because he just can’t express himself that way.
Instead, he will allow his actions to convey the message that he is hoping to get across.
In this case, that message may be that he wants to end the relationship.
