I had a long talk with a good, very attractive female friend.
She chatted with me about texting and how guys get friend zoned for replying to a text in a timely manner. Girls seem to want guys to reply in a timely manner, but when we do, we look desperate and boring.
So the only way to get a girls attention is to receive texts, and then not reply.

This probably works well if the girl has lots of free time or low self-esteem.
I have little free time and I really like myself, so if a guy doesn't text back habitually I just kind of cross him off the list. It doesn't matter if he's ignoring me or just busy, to me if there's no response there's no interest, which is fine, because there are, or will be, more guys.
In my opinion, people who are seeking validation of their worth want to be liked by those they perceive as socially superior to them. Some of that superiority/ethos is achieved by remaining aloof and elusive, which would mean that the opposite, reliability and timeliness, is evidence of a person's lack of social engagements/commitments/prowess. Erego, women who need to be validated will always place a premium on being ignored, because the few times they AREN'T ignored by the more socially valuable person is intoxicating...until the high dissipates and they need it again.
You can do what you want, but I'd stick with women who don't worry too much about all of that stuff to begin with. If she's jonesing for constant proof that someone she perceives as valuable finds HER valuable, she's got bigger problems than her ever-increasing friendzone.0
