I may sound catty or insecure, but I’m not sure what is normal in these circumstances. I’m usually the one to text my boyfriend of about 6 months….he replies sometimes in an hour or so….sometimes it takes him hours….I’m fine with that. And it’s normally very short texts…and I don’t repeatedly text him if I don’t hear back…I respect his space and never try to smother him. However, I texted him and he has not replied…it’s been a day. I know he is off school right now and does not have work….and when I’m with him…he always has his phone on him…so I’m almost certain he did get the message.
I suppose I don’t understand why someone wouldn’t have the courtesy to text back at least within a day….he has done this once months before…but he was in school and had a lot going on. I never demand him to explain or make comments as to why he takes so long to contact me….I’m aware of his personal space and I give it to him.
In this situation do I just wait for him to contact me…or should I try to text or call him again? I don’t want to seem overbearing…but I feel like it’s very unusual for this to happen….and I’m certain that there is no reason for him to be upset with me…so I know it’s not that….
Thanks for your help. I appreciate it.

1. He might have been busy when you texted him, checked the text, and went to reply later but forgot
2. He might have been busy and forgot you texted at all
3. He might think he's replied but for some reason the text didn't send/didn't get out
4. He might not have his phone with him for some reason
6. He might not have anything to say in reply to your text
There's nothing wrong with not replying, sometimes it happens, it's perfectly fine. If you're that worried/you want to talk to him that much just give him a call. Some people just don't like texting and that's fine, so don't base his feelings towards you or his motives and thoughts on how quickly/if he replies to a text. We've all forgotten to reply or shrugged a text off or something like that, every single one of us. Relax, just give him a call if it means that much that he talk to you when you guys aren't together.0
