    I think it would be pretty bad for a guy to change his number just to avoid a girl. That is a lot of work.

  • Joann Rodriguez January 18, 2016, 2:55 pm

    No big deal. Just remember that next time he texts you :)

  • Mildred Mahoney January 18, 2016, 2:45 pm

    There are places in the world these days have go to war when replies are not sent fast enough via text.

  • Mary Baca January 15, 2016, 8:25 pm

    There is one thing that I hate the most about men and that is the fact that they are the worst at getting back to you via text.

  • Mary Nguyen January 14, 2016, 9:14 pm

    Does anyone actually have any tips about what I should do if he is not getting back to me and I think something might be wrong (based on other things that have been said).

  • Vivian Tilghman January 14, 2016, 9:04 pm

    All valid reasons in my book. As long as I can use the exact same reasons for not texting HIM back.

  • Julie Chiles January 13, 2016, 11:20 am

    I am still an old time communicator. I prefer to talk to someone face to face.

    • Pamela McClendon January 15, 2016, 8:36 pm

      LOL. These are very good and I think we have all been in a situation where we are thinking of at LEAST one of these.

  • Penny Garcia January 12, 2016, 5:49 pm

    Nice post, we should all freak out when we do not get a text back from a significant other!

  • Mona Weinberg January 11, 2016, 9:40 pm

    It looks like there could be a few reasons he is not getting back to you, however, most of these are not “good” in my book.

    • Adriana Beal January 20, 2016, 3:41 pm

      Yeah, mostly excuses if you ask me.

  • Rhonda Numbers January 8, 2016, 1:26 pm

    I have heard the “i never saw your text” sort of thing, but I never believe it.

    • Helen Loyd January 12, 2016, 5:57 pm

      Yea, that one is BS.

    • Herma Shelby January 13, 2016, 11:43 am

      BIG TIME!

  • Marie Marshall January 7, 2016, 10:26 pm

    I really would like to know what people are thinking when they are not getting back to you right away. You KNOW they are not just “busy”.

  • Dawn Woods January 6, 2016, 3:21 pm

    Texting is so much fun. When you get addicted to it like I am, it really sucks when you do not get a reply fast enough.

  • Mary Harris January 6, 2016, 2:52 pm

    If my b/f does not get back to me at a reasonable time, he better be abducted by aliens!

    • Tia Jackson January 11, 2016, 9:49 pm

      LOL. Poor guy, I think you might be a little rough with him.

  • Edna Simcox January 5, 2016, 9:57 pm

    Some of these might be a little weird, but they are all reasons that I have heard!

    • Tonya Gilmore January 7, 2016, 10:35 pm

      Well, I have heard most of these excuses as well. It does not take much to send a text back stating that you are busy, right?

  • Lisa McKinley January 4, 2016, 9:28 pm

    In so many cases, you are not sure what the other person is thinking. They could be getting your text and ignoring you on purpose. How are you supposed to know?

  • Tracy Hall January 1, 2016, 10:08 am

    Some people, like my sister, really get mad when they do not get a text reply back in a few minutes. What is the big deal?

    • Crystal Hargrave January 4, 2016, 9:38 pm

      There is nothing to really worry about, right?

  • Cora Taylor December 31, 2015, 8:47 am

    People freak out about things too quickly these days. I procrastinate and that goes for text messages too.

  • Kay Gallo December 30, 2015, 9:32 am

    if you are going to have this many GiFs in one post, I am going to have to let it load for a while so I can get the jist of all of them :)

    • Doris Hendrick January 8, 2016, 1:34 pm

      It sort of sucks up a lot of time when they are all trying to load at one time, right?

  • Sally Ives December 29, 2015, 8:27 am

    I love the Seinfeld GIF, that show is my favorite.

  • Bernie Anderson December 28, 2015, 1:18 pm

    I call these types of guys, “irresponsible texters”.

  • Katie Hunt December 28, 2015, 1:04 pm

    When I do not get a text back I freak out and then I realize that it is not that big of deal…LOL….is it?

    • Kathleen Gilbert December 29, 2015, 8:45 am

      Not usually.

  • Betty Hicks December 27, 2015, 9:25 am

    GIFs are fun to watch. These really made my day!

    • Lisa Kugler December 30, 2015, 9:40 am

      I like them too. I waste a lot of time online watching them.

    • Mary Romero January 5, 2016, 10:08 pm

      I know, I could waste all night watching them.

  • Edith Irby December 26, 2015, 12:29 pm

    After a rough couple of days getting through the holidays, this was a nice pick me up!

    • Ruth Sipes January 1, 2016, 10:22 am

      Exactly what I was thinking. These are sort of fun to read.

  • Donald Sayre December 26, 2015, 12:13 pm

    All of these are real entertaining, but honestly, if I do not text you back it is because I am busy right at that second.

  • Velma Lozano December 24, 2015, 12:20 pm

    Some of these are pretty good. I might have to use them myself!

  • Jenette Veiga August 30, 2015, 10:28 am

    Nothing to freak out about people. However, sharing these gif’s is a top priority right now LOL.

    • Denise Jacobi December 31, 2015, 8:56 am

      LOL. that is a very good point!

  • Linda Smith August 30, 2015, 10:06 am

    People seem so concerned when a text is not answered in the first few minutes. I don’t see it as a big deal, but that is just me!

  • Clara Wilson August 28, 2015, 1:25 pm

    LOL. This is good. Thanks for making my day!

  • Elizabeth Lindsey August 28, 2015, 12:54 pm

    Of course, I have thought of all of these situations, but what if NONE of them are the reason?

    • Lucy Miller August 30, 2015, 10:16 am

      I thought about this. There are many different reasons it could be, but these are some of the more popular ones I guess.

  • Karan Brown August 25, 2015, 9:37 am

    This helps me out a little. I have a crush on a guy and we have texted before, but now its all stopped. Do I just assume it was nothing to get excited about?

    • Stephen Montgomery December 27, 2015, 9:38 am

      You COULD make an assumption, but wouldn’t it be easier to just ask him?

  • Judith Turner August 24, 2015, 9:11 am

    I agree. A guy that does not text you back does not need a reason, I think that is a clear sign to move along.

    • Ida Atherton December 24, 2015, 12:29 pm

      I would take it the same way. It is not easy waiting around for a reply when you are not sure what is happening on the other side.

  • Brandy Jensen August 24, 2015, 9:01 am

    LOL. Love this. I rarely worry about getting a text back from a guy. It doesn’t matter to me now, since I am single!

  • Dorothy Aguilar August 22, 2015, 6:10 am

    This was very entertaining and it made my morning!

  • Mandy Moran August 22, 2015, 6:00 am

    None of these are good reasons. If he does not like you, he should tell you that before he just starts to ignore you.

  • April Massey August 20, 2015, 9:46 pm

    Always a comic in the crowd!

    • Sandra Torres August 25, 2015, 9:26 am

      Just a little something to break up the day, right?

    • Janelle Fugate August 30, 2015, 10:36 am

      That is how I felt about this!

  • Norma Roberts August 20, 2015, 9:36 pm

    Very funny! I love the GIFs and how they are associated with the reason he is not texting you back.

  • Paula Taylor August 19, 2015, 8:34 am

    ALL very good reasons LOL. I wouldn’t worry about whether he is going to text you back or not. I would be more concerned if you do not hear from him at all for a couple of days. Then, all you have to do is ask him.

  • Lana Greer August 18, 2015, 4:45 pm

    These are awesome GIFs, LOL. I could buy some of these reasons I guess. It just sucks when you really wanna talk to your man and he does not get back to you right away.

  • Teresa Martinez August 17, 2015, 9:08 am

    I love GIFs. These are very relevant. Sometimes I wonder why my b/f is not texting me back, but usually it is worry for nothing. Just stay calm.

  • Theresa Washington August 14, 2015, 12:05 pm

    Entertaining post, that is for sure!

    • Marion Hardy August 18, 2015, 4:57 pm

      LOL, that is what I thought!

  • Janay Grier August 14, 2015, 11:30 am

    There is always a reason you are not getting a text back. I am usually quite patient, but then when a new conversation is started before one ends, that bothers me.

  • Sara Nelson August 13, 2015, 5:42 pm

    Maybe it is because he doesn’t “really” like you? I get this feeling sometimes and I am always at a lose as to what I can do about it :/

  • Bernadette Goodwin August 13, 2015, 4:33 pm

    I used to freak out about things like this, but why? When my b/f doesn’t text me back, I just assume he is busy and I leave it at that. Nothing in life is worth more stress.

  • Christine Richardsons August 12, 2015, 9:47 am

    LOL. Even though some of these are true, I would not freak out over it. I feel like if you are in a texting relationship, it is not that serious anyway. If the guy is not CALLING you back, then you might have a problem that is worth looking into.

  • Andrea Perry August 12, 2015, 9:34 am

    ALL very valid reasons to start a freak out session and get your friends together for a defcon 5 meeting :)

    • Susan Black August 17, 2015, 9:21 am

      LOL, yea that would be an interesting “defcon 5” meeting!

  • Erica Miller August 11, 2015, 9:26 am

    LOL, some of these are quite good. The sad thing is that they are all realistic :/

    • Nicole Ross August 19, 2015, 8:50 am

      I am not sure I would call them realistic reasons. They do happen, but if my boyfriend was holding back from texting me for any of these, I would be pissed.

  • Bonnie Walker August 11, 2015, 9:17 am

    Now that this is something that became common to me, I tend to worry less about it. If the is not going to text me back, then forget it, I am done with him!

    • Nelly Ortiz January 19, 2016, 6:38 pm

      There is no reason to worry. Just make sure that you know it was nothing to worry about first.

  • Laurie Simpson August 10, 2015, 7:33 pm

    LOL, these are worth sharing with my friends that freak out when they do not get a reply in 2 minutes!

  • Lillian Reyes August 10, 2015, 7:22 pm

    At first I was annoyed by the GIFs, but then they all started to fit the reasons he was not texting back :) Big smiles here.

  • Minerva Matherly   August 7, 2015, 9:35 pm

    LOL. I could watch these GIFs all day long. Some of them even go along with the point you are trying to make.

  • Ariana   August 7, 2015, 9:21 pm

    I guess for now, these could be considered good reasons. If it was something that happened all the time, I would be curious as to what the real reason was.

    • Maria Garland January 19, 2016, 6:45 pm

      Depends on what you consider “good”, I guess.
