“He hasn’t texted me in 2 days”… or worse… “He hasn’t texted me in a week!” Why do guys stop texting for a few days and, when he doesn’t text back, what can you do about it?
You’re getting along nicely with a new guy, you two may have even been on a few dates. Texting every day has become the normal thing between you and then one day, he just stops texting you. There’s no explanation or reason given, he just ghosts you. You’re then in a predicament of what to do, while you don’t want to seem desperate (because you’re not!) you also don’t want to just leave things on bad terms this guy. Along with this, you have a million questions running through your head about why he’s stopped and what’s going to happen now.
It’s difficult, most of us have been there. You’re left with nothing out of the time you two have spent together and now all the meaningful texts you sent seem too far away to ever get back. Yet, why do guys stop texting you? Are there things you can do afterward to make sure you feel better and get over him quicker? We’ve put together this short guide on how to cope when a guy stops texting you. We know how upsetting it can be sometimes which is why we encourage you to keep doing your thing and being amazing, having fun in your own life!
Take The Quiz: Is He Losing Interest?
Reasons He’s Stopped Texting You
There may not be any valid excuses coming from his mouth, but we know there are a few reasons why he’s stopped texting you. These aren’t 100% and should be considered on a situational basis as the explanation could be a lot simpler than you’re thinking..
- He’s not interested and thinks that ignoring your texts will make you go away. He’s also probably hoping you’ll take the hint soon and he won’t have to talk to you about how he’s feeling. Guys can be annoying sometimes.
- He’s already in a relationship and he’s not told you. He could be texting you behind his other girls back and finally come to his senses that cheating isn’t the best way to go. While we may be happy he’s finally found his conscience, it leaves you feeling down.
- He’s busy and we’ll let him off if he only stops texting for a day or two but it’s not good enough when it’s over a week. Being busy doesn’t always mean he should ignore your texts. Sometimes guys need to find the time to chat with you about your day rather than just waiting for you to text them.
5 Things to Do If He Hasn’t Text You Recently
We would say you should start moving on but it’s not always that easy, especially if you’ve started really liking him. Going from talking to a guy everyday to never speaking again is hard and things take time, so you’ve got to pace yourself. He may eventually text you again so we wouldn’t recommend you do anything stupid or embarrassing as it may be that he has a perfectly valid reason he hasn’t text you in a month (he could have lost his phone!). Below is a list of five things you can do if he hasn’t text you recently.
1. Don’t Keep Texting Him
If you’ve already sent one or two texts and he’s not replied, don’t waste your time double texting him. You’ll regret it if he ends up coming back to you. It seems needy and sometimes it can annoy the guy even more because they might just need some space from the constant texting.
2. Keep Yourself Occupied
Distract yourself by going out with your girlfriends or having some fun, anything will do. Keep yourself active and don’t sit around your bedroom all day wondering if he will ever text back. Show yourself you’re better than him not texting you back!
3. Avoid Assumptions
It’s easy to get carried away when you don’t know what’s happening, try to avoid assuming the worst and don’t panic. There could be a perfectly valid reason for him not texting you and getting yourself panicked isn’t going to help the situation.
4. Don’t Stalk His Social Media
If you find something you don’t want to see, then you’ll get yourself even more upset. It’s always better to put him to the back of your mind until he texts you again, and if he doesn’t, you haven’t lost anything.
5. Remember how much you’re worth
You’re a strong woman with a lot of amazing aspects, don’t let one guy get you down. Remember that you’re worth so much more than a guy who can’t be bothered to text you back.
Should I Expect a Reply?
You might have been speaking to a guy for a month or even longer and text every day. Yet, you shouldn’t start simply expecting a reply. It’s nice for the guy to reply and talk constantly but he doesn’t actually owe you anything. Morally, a guy should do his best to be as nice as he can but if you want to stay sane then we’d say never expect a reply. You don’t want to be let down and this is the only way.
How Long is Too Long?
ok, so he’s stopped replying to your texts and it’s been 1 day? That’s fine. We’d say that any guy can be interested in you but not text back for around 3 days. Any longer than this and he’s either trying to tell you something by ignoring you or he’s just deleted your number. In some circumstances, he could have lost your number or his phone but this is rare so you may want to find out more.
Should I Try Double Texting Him?
This is a no-go if you want to keep your dignity. The more you text and think about the situation, the worse it gets. Don’t double or even triple text him because it’s not worth your time. If he wanted to talk then he would find a way and you constantly texting him isn’t going to change that.
