  • I answer as soon as I can. If I'm busy, obviously it'll take more time before I *can* answer, but other than that, I have a reputation for immediate responses.

    I don't do the "let me wait 5 minutes before responding" thing, haha! I've actually been told to do that when trying to date someone, haha! "Wait the same amount of time he did!" Rules rules rules. I've never been very good at following rules :-)

  • It depends on how much I value the sender and if I'm busy or not. If I really like someone I reply rather quickly within the first 3 hours usually no matter what, if not AND I'm busy it could take hours, it could take days and in some cases weeks.

  • I respond whenever I read a text. Sometimes my phone's on silent or I'm busy so it takes longer to receive a message. Just depends.

  • the sound on my phone is usually turned off, so it might take an hour or so before I notice I have received a text. I usually answer the text as soon as I see it, unless I am really busy and it would be inappropriate to be texting.

  • I don't always have my phone right by me. If I do, I'll respond within a few minutes unless I'm busy. Otherwise I respond within a day.

  • II TRY to text back right away if I'm about to meet someone though...during finals week it might take a day or two to respond. I'm simply not an avid texter so most of the time it takes me forever.

  • It depends on how busy I am.

    If I'm busy and I forget it might take a while, but usually I text back right away.

  • If I have time and I hear the beep, I respond immediately. If I'm somehow busy or find out later, I respond a.s.a.p. If I'm really busy, I respond whenever I get the chance, which can take couple of hours or even a full day...

  • Work related = when I know the answer.

    Non-work related = when I feel like it.
