Not everything is all about you. That’s both a good thing and a bad thing. On the one hand, you understand that the world doesn’t revolve around you and you are upset because you don’t get all of the attention that you want. But on the other hand, you aren’t responsible for every single bad thing that may befall you either. Sometimes, you are just plain unlucky and it’s not your fault. So you don’t always have to fret whenever a guy just stops replying to your texts. Sometimes, it’s not going to be your fault. In fact, a lot of times, the reason that he isn’t replying to you has nothing to do with you at all.
Don’t believe it? Well, read this article in its entirety and get back to us. By the end of this piece, you will be convinced that things aren’t always going to be your fault. And sometimes in love, things are going to be beyond your control. You’re just going to have to learn to accept that and move forward. You won’t always get what you want no matter how hard you try. And that’s okay.
1. He is just too immature to allow himself to reply to you in a prompt manner.
There are some men who are so immature that they think that love is a game – and that the act of replying to a text message too early would be equivalent to losing the game. He still treats love like some sort of competition and he’s trying to keep score with you. He doesn’t want you to think that he’s too eager to reply to you and so he makes you wait for a few days. Sometimes, he would even wait until you send a follow-up message before he really replies to you.
This is just an outdated dating tactic that a lot of immature men still try to play these days. And it’s just sad. You shouldn’t have to waste your time with a guy who approaches dating in this manner. You are only going to be left feeling disappointed and unfulfilled.
2. He is just so selfish to the point that he is too lazy to let you know that he isn’t interested.
Sometimes, a guy just isn’t going to be interested in you. And that shouldn’t be his fault. However, it’s his fault if he continues to lead you on; if he continues to keep you on a leash. If he isn’t interested in you, he should have the courage to let you down gently rather than just ignore you altogether. He shouldn’t be okay with just leaving you hanging like that.
3. He is just plain terrible at following through on things.
Some men just have terrible follow-through. And again, that isn’t your fault. It’s theirs. Some men are good at starting things even though they don’t finish it. And that can happen a lot even in relationships. Just because he showed you interest in the beginning doesn’t mean that he’s going to see things through with you. You aren’t guaranteed of anything.
4. He is dealing with a lot of self-doubt and insecurities.
He might not think that he’s good enough for you. Or perhaps he’s overthinking things and he just doesn’t know how to respond or communicate with you in general. Regardless, he’s letting his insecurities keep him from actually replying to your text message.
5. He has been too busy to reply and he thinks that too much time has elapsed already.
Sometimes, a guy will just be a little too busy. Perhaps he is just far too consumed with the things that he has to get done at work. Or maybe he’s going through some personal family issues that have led to him being a little antisocial for the moment. Or he just might be too stressed with having to deal with other matters for now. Regardless, he’s waited too long to reply to you and now he feels like it would be really weird and rude to reply now that it’s just been far too late. So instead of going through the hassles of explaining himself, he’d rather just not reply to you altogether.
These are only a few examples. But there could be a myriad of other reasons as to why a guy wouldn’t be relying to your text message. In any case, you should follow-up; but only to a certain extent. You don’t want to be overdoing it either. It has to get to a point where you put your foot down on yourself. If he’s not responding to you, then maybe he just isn’t the guy for you and you just need to move on. There are plenty of other guys in the world who would be willing to give you their attention. You don’t need to keep wasting your time by remaining hung up on this one particular person. Sometimes, things just aren’t meant to be.
