When Do Guys Not Text Back?

When Do Guys Not Text Back?Oftentimes, a guy won’t text back if he has gotten bored with the relationship or the interaction.

You both may have started off really well. The conversations may have been very free and fun. The texting felt natural and open.

You may have believed during this time that everything was going well. Indeed, everything was probably going well at this point.

However, conversations can take a wrong turn and begin to grow stale.

Perhaps you have been sticking to the same topic for too long.

Perhaps you seem to be telling the same jokes or talking about the same people over and over.

Perhaps you may even be forgetting about the importance of infusing flirtation into the conversation from time to time so that you can keep him interested and excited.

These could all be factors that can lead to boredom.

It can really be easy to fall into this kind of texting when you feel like something has been working with this guy.

Since you started the conversation on a high note and everything had been going well, you simply stuck to what seemed to be working without realizing that you need to change things up.

In this scenario, when a guy doesn’t text back, he may be showing you that he has now gotten bored and is tired of the discussions that you have been having over text.

A guy would also not text back if he feels like the conversations are going nowhere in terms of what he is looking for.

If he were trying to date you and the conversations seem to be more on the platonic level, he may become discouraged.

He may begin to believe that you are not looking for something beyond mundane and platonic conversation.

He would begin to question whether there was any point in having these texting conversations with you.

Indeed he may worry that he is wasting his time and effort on a girl who isn’t seeing him as anything other than a platonic friend.

This becomes a problem.

He may wrestle with the idea that perhaps he should just give this time and eventually you will come around.

However, he may have run out of patience.

This is a very strong possibility.

Perhaps you do like him but you have never really given him any clear signs that you are interested in him romantically in your conversations through text.

Maybe you think you did. Maybe you think you dropped some subtle signs.

However, clearly, those signs may not have been strong enough for him to understand them.

Thereby, you would have really needed to let him know that you were feeling just as interested in him as he was in you in order to keep him interested.

A guy would also not text back when he feels that he has better dating prospects.

He may have initially had a texting conversation with you because he wanted to see just how far he wanted to take this.

In other words, he may have simply been testing out what kind of chemistry you both may of had.

He may have realized that he has better chemistry with other girls that he may be talking to at the moment and has consequently stopped texting you back.
