I just like to be updated throughout the day(s) of what's going on. I love her and appreciate when she texts me back. Or better yet calls. Even better & much more sweeter are the moments in person we meet.
Other than passively saying to yourself, oh you don't text me for a couple of hours, I'll make them wait an equal time or recognize that's stupid and try calling them but then they reject the notion because they are busy or let it go to VM
Any tips on dealing with the wait for the next text? Seriously feel co dependent... LOL

Like you said before, if they're busy with something then obviously they won't be able to respond right away. And on the flip side of that, if she's home doing nothing then she may not have her phone right next to her constantly. I know when I'm home I usually have my phone plugged in the living room charging. And a lot of times I leave the room, so I won't notice when I get a text for awhile. Most people don't check their phones 24/7. Also, if she puts her phone on silent for work, she might forget to turn it back on when she leaves. So it could take her awhile to notice for that reason.
Basically there are a lot of different factors for why she could be doing this. If it bothers you so much just talk to her about. If she seems uncomfortable with the discussion or vague in her reasoning for why she doesn't respond right away, then you might have a cause for concern. But until then I wouldn't worry about it much. The point is she DOES respond to you eventually right? At least you know she's not ignoring you.
Also, I wouldn't suggest "making" them wait for a reply as long as you did. That's called game playing. Also, two wrongs don't make a right eh? When you get the message, respond. Treat others the way you want to be treated... Maybe she'll be more inclined to keep on top of her phone respond right away when she sees that you always do.0
