It's been a month, we've decided to be exclusive and when we're together he's the most attentive, sweet, best guy you could ask for. But he is incredibly busy w work and doesn't text me every day. I mentioned it'd be cool to hear from him more and next time we were hanging out he brought up, "I have to get better at texting.
But on Sunday none. I texted him and he responded immediately saying he was working on a bunch of his work stuff, didn't seem to want to have a longer convo really.
I want to talk daily and am getting amnoyed. What do I do. Delete Report Edit Lock Reported. Respond Your response must be between 3 and characters.
Wilde Send a private message. I think there's no rule how many times a couple texts. That's the sort of thing couples work out between themselves.
Since you've encouraged him to text more because you like that, i think it's great he's said he needs to get better at it, So in turn, you might check your annoyance that he's not as in to texting as you are. Delete Report Edit Reported Reply. SarahK Send a private message. If I'm dating someone exclusively, I'd expect him to want to talk with or see me every day.
If he didn't, that would be an indication that we're after different things in a relationship. Texting is secondary to me, something used to communicate quick info or funny happenings, not real conversation.
Edited on December 22, at KingHW Send a private message. Why should he have to keep stopping what he's doing every 3 minutes to text you back?
He could have just not texted you at all on Sunday after you hit him up. He was respectful enough to tell you he was busy working. Take the hint and let him do his thing. At the most, request that he texts you after work. Bear in mind that he has a need for peace that is as important as your need for constant inane chatter.

You've only been exclusive for a month, I'd think as the relationship matures more frequent chats should come about.
You sound like my girlfriend. She is used to texting a lot and having a lot of people text her. When she started dating me, at one point we were texting back and forth but after a while, it began to slow down, especially since I was working more. She got upset about it and we talked about it. Plus, if he's working a lot he may see your text, but is so focused that he reads it and once his phone is down, he completely forgets you texted him.
You can talk to him about it, but don't make such a big deal. He'd probably rather talk to you in person or over the phone anyways. One missed emoji or a missing punctuation mark can make a happy conversation go bad quickly haha.
I know this seems like some serious stuff and you may just have to meet him in the middle somewhere. I have been dating the bf for 5 years I have very spotty phone service because I am in a rural area and neither of us like to talk on the phone much so usually I text him when I get home I have an hour's drive and he worries and then I always hear back from him around 7 and usually we cut off around 9 ish or whenever I go to sleep.
A lot of times, we watch tv together this way and I know that one day a week, he goes to his brothers so we don't really talk much then. Ours is also not an immediate response kind of thing since both of us are doing other things usually during this time. It may be that he is not into this kind of thing so maybe it might be a good idea to ask if you could have a brief call around bed time? Delores Send a private message.
Not all people have the same texting habits. I had to learn this too. I'd get bent out of shape about my guy not texting me but over time, I found out that he just wasn't much of a texter.
In person, we instantly clicked and fell back into the romantic couple mode. Over text was just a way to relay info and short stuff. Give it time and you'll see. When he is at work I would not expect to hear from him. I hate texting so meh But he could call or you could call him.
Talk to him about this tell him you need to hear from him Ask a New Question expand. What do you think? Anonymous He unblocked me and sent waving emojis?
Anonymous He likes me, but his actions tell me otherwise Is he not interested?? What's wrong with this question? Basically your a typical guy man. I'm the same way. Hate talking on the phone, Hate texting.
