I have seen questions like this online all the time, "he/she saw the message, how come she/he did not respond?"
"I know she/he read the message, but he/she did not respond, does this mean she/he does not like me anymore?"
"Why won't my boyfriend/girlfriend respond to my message, is he cheating? He usually does not do this?"
"How come she/he won't respond?"

It is a mix of both I think, but more about the world we live in. We expect an answer immediately after we send something because communication is happening at such a fast pace now, but we also have the stigmas that go with responding right after reading. Like "if I respond within a minute or two is that desperate?" or "Does an immediate response mean I have nothing better to do?" questions like that have been associated with responding quickly. On the flip side if they do not respond for a long time we get "do they not like me?" "What else could they be doing?" and so on. It is really rather dumb the games we play with each other and how easily we get ideas in our heads about the worst possible outcome.0

I just think it's plain selfishness on their part wanting the other person to answer straight away but not realising people have other things on their minds other than being distracted on the phone all day 24.7...0
