    Texting with a guy I just met

    Hey!! Well it happens that I work in a store mall as a cashier, and I met a really cute guy, we had a conversation and he was really nice and sweet, and he gave me his phone number. I texted him the next day, and he replied back. We’ve been talking for 3 days, but since the first day I texted him, he takes almost 4 hours to reply back; yesterday when he got off form working we had a fluid conversation, but after that he was replying me back after 2 hours. I always rake like 10 min to reply him back or rlI reply inmediately. Do you guys think I should take the same time he takes to reply me back, to reply him back? And Do you guys think his interested? Or should I just move on? Why does he takes so long to reply me back? I know he works for a company and maybe his bussy. I don’t know. Please help me!!! I don’t have a lot of experience dating. Thanks!!!!

    Well I don’t know how useful my experience is. I lasted dated in High School seven years ago and only started again recently, but as a guy I’ll just say if he really likes you he’ll agonize over the wait for the next text which is a good thing for you. The longer you make him wait the better it will feel when he gets a text back. Waiting the same amount of time it takes him to reply back isn’t always a bad idea, and waiting even longer isn’t bad either, I’d do that every once in a while to get him thinking, but I also wouldn’t do it all the time if you don’t want the conversation to take forever and waiting too long he might assume disinterest and move on. Try waiting a whole day to text him back maybe. Try and figure out and be mindful of his schedule. The girl I’ve been interested is busy till 9:30 PM on most weekdays and I don’t usually text her those days. On Friday she always gets back with me at around 7:20. So I assume she just got off work and don’t wait as long to text back.

    Well thank you for ypur advice!!! I’ll try to do that.
    Update: I texted him yesterday monrning and he reply me back today morning saying sorry for not replying me back till today because was yesterday was a long day at work for him and that he couldn’t reply back to me early. Should I reply him back till tomorrow or even waiting longer to reply him back?

    I am notorious for not replying to texts for hours…and it has nothing to do with not wanting to chat. I am super busy during the week and often only have time to reply every few hours. I agree with previous post-maybe wait and let him initiate contact next time.
