If this is a guy that you have been talking to for some time, you should still give him the time of day.
Even though he left you on read for over 24 hrs, that doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care about his relationship with you.
Something may have come up during that time that made him unable to respond to your message in a timely fashion.
It is always important to consider what may be going on in the other person’s life.
You may have a bunch of free time on your hands but the other person may not.
Perhaps he has started a new job recently or a new personal project.
There may even be some family obligations that he is attending to.
He may have only been able to read your message but simply didn’t have the time to respond to it.
His schedule may have changed in the last few days.
A number of things could have happened that prevented him from responding to your message quicker.
Instead of looking at this in a negative way, it would help to consider another angle.
He may have read your message because he was excited about receiving a message from you.
However, he may have already known that he would not be able to respond to that message because he just didn’t have the time.
However, he wanted to see what you had to say.
Perhaps he was excited about responding to that message as soon as time would allow it.
If he has since responded to the message, that may indicate that he is still totally in this.
He just didn’t have the time to respond to your message sooner.
Again, it is important that you don’t allow the fact that you wanted him to respond to you sooner to cloud your judgment.
You shouldn’t just let a guy go and no longer give him the time of day because you didn’t get a response when you expected it.
Again, understand that life happens.
If he has been quick to respond to your messages in the past, it would be a good idea to give him the benefit of the doubt on this occasion.
Understand that he is not always going to be able to respond to you at the time that you expect him to.
In fact, you should really make sure that you get this.
This may not be the only time that he leaves you on read for over 24 hours.
Again, if his life circumstances have changed, there is a good chance that this will happen again.
You shouldn’t judge him because of it.
If he mostly responds to your messages at a quicker pace, you shouldn’t give up on him because he sometimes takes longer.
Again, you may have more time on your hands than he does.
Try to consider what his life is like and the other responsibilities that he may have.
It is never good to expect an instant response from someone that you are seeing all the time.
Even if they were able to give you that for a time, eventually, there will be moments where they simply can’t respond to your message quicker.
Judge them based on their entire behavior when it comes to communicating with you as opposed to the few moments where they have a delayed response time.
