I have been dating someone for about a month (not exclusive). His texting habits are kind of sporadic, texting me good morning/night, texting through the day etc. This has happened many times though, the conversation is dropped and many hours go by w/out him answering. The interest is there, but I was wondering if this happens to other people as well that do have partners that are very much interested.
My boyfriend of a year SUCKS at texting and responding. Best boyfriend ever, were extremely happy and into one another. I used to take it personally and question his interest but then I realized how ridiculous it was to base interest level in a relationship on technology. So now I no longer take it personally. If I have something important to talk to him about and I need a response right away, I call him. He's never missed a call of mine.
My boyfriend always responds to my messages and I do the same. Even when we were dating we wouldn't ignore each other's messages and we always make a reasonable effort to keep the flow. With that said, there just isn't always time for chit chat for hours on end. Some hour delays is to be expected.
