It’s easy to come to your own conclusions about why a man is ignoring your texts, but assuming anything is always a bad idea. There are endless reasons why a man might not get back to you as quickly as you think he should. If he hasn’t replied for a number of days, here are four possible reasons why.
1. He has a significant other
It’s possible that if you met a man online and he tells you he’s single he might not really be. Unfortunately people lie. If the man you’ve been texting seems to disappear after work until late at night, it’s possible that he has a girlfriend or wife. He might stick to a very strict schedule for texting you because he’s hiding something from you and from the other woman in his life. Does he seem to disappear during the weekends and text you again from work on Monday? This could be a pretty clear sign that he has someone special in his life especially if he’s vague about details of what he did.
2. He’s busy
Sometimes a guy isn’t ignoring you on purpose. He may have simply gotten involved in something and forgot to check texts. Not all guys are constantly checking their phones for texts, so it’s important that you don’t take his lack of response personally or to mean he has a secret life you’re unaware of. If you know work has gotten busy or he’s just bought a new video game system, you can safely assume he’s just busy.
3. He’s bored
If he’s bored by the conversation, a man may stop replying to your texts. Men don’t typically reply to texts that don’t require a reply. If you’re constantly texting a man about what your doing, what you’re eating, and who you spent lunch hour with, this may be why you’re no longer hearing back from him. He might not really care about all these small details of your life and doesn’t want to read numerous texts about them. Instead of taking the initiative to update him on every aspect of your life, wait for him to ask.
4. He wants something different out of the relationship
The man you’re talking to might start ignoring you if he realizes you want something different from your relationship. If you’re interested in a man more than he’s interested in you and he realizes this, he might feel that the best solution is to stop texting you. If he was only looking for a sexual relationship and you’re clearly not into that, he might not want to continue communication.
Don’t jump to any conclusions when a man doesn’t answer your texts right away. It’s not necessarily a bad reason, but you should always remember that if a man wants to text you, he will. – aprilaragam
