I've read several times, even here, the question, "If a girl doesn't text you first ever, is she not interested?"
Most responses say "No, not necessarily. She may be busy, may be too shy, may not want to seem clingy/needy/desperate, may not want to bother the guy, may want the guy to traditionally contact first," etc.
My question is then, if the guy is trying to see for himself if the girl is interested at all (because that fear is what leads them to ask the question) and decides to not text for a while, does the initial common responses still stand? Are they still too busy, too shy, not wanting to bother?
Sometimes it seems as if the girl will keep waiting and waiting for you to contact again, then start thinking it's him who's losing interest. And if that's the case, he's not contacted yet again because what's the point.
I understand every girl is different, of course. And the situations are also very different for each of us. That's why I ask to see some different opinions.
So, once again, the question is: Do those initial responses still stand after the guy backs off from contacting first?
If not, is that way a better measure to see if the girl is genuinely interested?

If the girl IS interested and she's waiting for you to text, and you pull that backing off stunt, she's gonna be so guttered. And think you aren't interested. Ultimately girls like to be chased and hate making the first move.
She may cave in and text you something random just to check your response if she is forced to wait for too long. But really if you don't bite while it's hot, she's gonna move on feeling really annoyed and you'll have no idea...xX - In my opinion...xX
So I guess you can play the waiting game for a little bit but not for too long cause the bait won't look so tasty in her eyes and you both may end up dissappointed bud...xX0
