11 Reasons Men Don’t Text Back

Here are some real men explaining why they don’t text back super-instantly!

There’s no denying that technology has practically shaped the way people go about relationships and social interaction these days. With the dawn of technological innovation, it’s virtually possible for any two people on opposite sides of the globe to instantly communicate with each other.

The phenomenon of texting in particular has enabled us to get in touch with anyone we want to, and there’s no denying its role in helping shape relationships and bonds between people. Texting has also played a very vital role in courtship these days, and this can either be a good or bad thing.

Ladies, you know the struggles of not having your man text you back, right? It’s a common occurrence when men take a million years to reply to your message with a 4-word sentence and an emoji. It’s not rocket science, so why does it always take them so long? Here are 11 reasons why men don’t text back.

1. Jared

I don’t reply to a girl’s text message simply because I’m not in the mood to talk at the moment. I know that the moment I respond to a text message, there are billions of follow-up texts and it can be draining to reply to all of them. Sometimes, I’m just busy or really not in the mood to engage in a conversation with anyone. So I just avoid replying whenever I’m feeling particularly anti-social. Besides, a lot of women don’t reply to text messages either and I’m sure it’s for the same reasons.

2. Chandler

Sometimes, a man is afraid to say what he really feels at a particular moment. So he avoids being put in awkward situations by just refusing to participate in a texting conversation with someone. A man knows when he can be hurtful with his words, so he’s just going to bite his tongue a lot of the time instead of having to deal with the backlash of hurting someone.

3. Manny

The biggest reason I don’t reply to women is that I really don’t want to be the bearer of bad news. If I’ve been out on a date with a girl, and I didn’t enjoy it, I’ve practically lost all interest in her. Responding to her texts would just be prolonged agony of me not wanting to let her down.

4. Adrian

I like to play video games a lot, and I know that the moment I respond to a single text message, I’m going to have to end up pausing my game multiple times just to keep the conversation going. I like to play video games to clear my mind and destress. Sometimes, I’ll just put my phone on silent mode and check it once I’m done playing.
