This guy I've been talking to for a few weeks will text me then reply hours later. Is this normal. He didn't always do this, just recently and I'm not sure if he's just busy or what but he hasn't said anything about being busy lately
If I can sense that the girl is engaged in the conversation, then I will reply instantly. If I suspect that she is not that engaging, then it will take me longer to reply (vary from minutes to a around less than 3 hours) If I am busy with something, got something to say but need to gather my thoughts, then I will reply much later.
A key to texting a guy you like is to not make any signal that mislead him into thinking that you are not into him.
As soon as I see the message. I don't and won't play any fucking games with a girl. I rarely text anyone for conversation, and when it happens it's usually 1:00 am or 2:00 am and she tells me she's bored on her bed or something. I don't text during the day, or evening.
When I text I make sure is to settle a date or meet up, period. I don't linger on texts all the time, I don't like it.
