He texted me 5 days after I gave him my number, and I got a text from him around 8pm. I'm not sure if I should feel annoyed or maybe I am overreacting, but I thought if a guy is interested that he would call within a few days of getting a girls number. So because it took this long (almost 1 week), would this mean that he's not THAT interested in me? I mean, c'mon, no one is THAT busy. I am a pre-med student, and even I would have the time to text someone back right away.
We are both in our very early twenties (college-aged), so of course we are both busy, but part of me feels slightly bothered that he waited this long.. I don't want to text him back right away b/c I don't want to feel "too available" to him. And please don't say "just text him!" Dating is a game whether people like it or not, and sometimes we have to play the game.
Any advice on when I should message back? Serious replies please. Thanks.

If he wasn't that interested then why would he ask for your number. Best thing to do is mirror his actions. Seeing as it was his first time texting you he my have had to work up the courage to text you. If it continues to take him days to respond then he may not have high interest. If you like him ask him to do something with you like mini golf or something casual. If he doesn't sound interested in getting together and doesn't give you an alternative time to get together then it would be best to move on.0

Omg, I'm sorry, but I really hate it when people say "Dating is just a game". It really isn't. For my crush, I actually didn't even get a courage to ask for his number - I got it through a friend. If it wasn't for me texting him first (even though he didn't ask for my number), we wouldn't be as close as we are now (we started texting around mid October and we talked about everything).
So, it's not really his interest level - you can determine that when he starts to actually text you, like how long he responds, what time, what he texts about, etc. Some guys are just like that. There are some days when I would text him first and there are some days where he would text me. The one thing I know for sure is that he would text me usually an hour or less and his body language when I see him.
If you really want to know his interest level, see it through his body language and how he acts around you, if you see him. Then, the texting will come naturally after that.0
