“He stopped texting me after we slept together.”
Uh-oh. This could be trouble.
What happened? What does it all mean? Have you just been used and abused? Were you merely discarded after he got a little taste? Was that all that he was after? These may be just some of the questions that are rummaging through your mind if you’ve had a guy not text you after sleeping with you. Of course, it’s a big deal. You’re not overreacting. Intimacy is a very significant thing for you. It’s not casual. But does he feel the same way? What does it mean that he hasn’t gotten in touch with you since then?
Don’t worry. You’re not the only girl who has been put in this kind of situation. And you certainly won’t be the last one either. Regardless, it doesn’t make you feel good to know that a man you’ve slept with hasn’t texted you back. You might be growing anxious as you try to figure out what might be running through his mind. Whatever the case, there is a lot to unpack here. And you don’t have to do everything on your own.
Why Hasn’t He Texted Back?
First of all, the first thing that you have to remind yourself of is that this might not necessarily have anything to do with you. Keep in mind that if you just have a casual relationship with this man, he might have other things to concern himself with. He may be busy with work. There’s a chance that he’s dealing with personal issues. Whatever it may be, there’s a chance that he’s not texting you back because of some stuff taking place in his own life.
However, there is also the chance that it might have something to do with you, after all. Perhaps, and this is common for a lot of guys, the reason he hasn’t texted you yet is that he doesn’t understand how he feels. He may have feelings for you, but he doesn’t quite comprehend them fully. So, he doesn’t want to be texting you without first understanding the emotions that are eating away at his insides. You have to understand that it might take some guys a while before they can come to terms with how they feel.
What are You Supposed to Do?
Well, there are a few things you can do. The first option is for you just to sit and wait. Sometimes, patience is critical. Wait for him to deal with whatever it is he might be dealing with. When he’s ready, he will get back to you.
Another option is just to text him first yourself. There is absolutely no law in the world of dating that prohibits you from being the one to send him the first text. Heck, he might even just be waiting for you to make the first move. In any case, just make sure that you don’t let it affect you too much on an emotional level.
