My boyfriend is the absolute worst texter and I hate it!
He almost always has his phone, because when I'm with him he is texting a lot. So why does it often take 30 min, an hr, 2 hrs to text me back?!
It's been like this since the day I met him, it's not like a change, it's just the way he is. but I wanna know why he does this to me when I am pretty sure he responds quickly when making plans with his guy friends?
That's a quick responder amongst guys. It is the guy's responsibility to slow down the relationship for the good of the relationship. Guys do this to define the boundaries of their space and thus provide a comfortable pace to their interactions with you. I never text a girl I am dating while I'm at work because I don't want her to think it's okay because it isn't. It's disruptive and would lead to frustration that I would have to repress or discuss with her.
My boyfriend is the same way. He has mentioned he isn't much of a texter, though. He also doesn't have his phone wih him 24/7. He pays attention to me when we're together, so I could care less if it takes him longer than most people, to text back.
