It's so annoying. It's not always about being busy. I have a friend who is becoming more than a friend that takes hours to text back, and he is glued to his phone.
Meanwhile my other guy friends that are purely platonic get back to me in like 2 seconds. Because we all know we have our phones, and why not?
But with this guy, it's like ok. Now we wait. Will it be 5 hours, 8, 12, tomorrow?
It's not only with him, it's always with any guy that there's feelings there. And no, it's not that they aren't interested.
"How are you, how did x, y, z go yesterday?" Let's drag this convo out now...

"Why do people feel the need to space out their text responses by hours?"
You're asking the wrong question. Why do girls demand an immediate response to text messages? If you want immediate response, make a fucking phone call.
Text messages are like emails. You send them, they will be read (eventually) and replied to (possibly) at a convenient time.3
