Do guys get annoyed if you don't text them back right away?

So I like this guy and I try not be annoying by texting him everyday, but he has a full time job at a law firm and I never really know when he gets off work so I usually don't text him until around 8pm. He used to respond right away to my texts, but lately he hasn't because I've gotten into the habit of responding until the following night becuase I get up really early and go to bed before 10 and I also I think its weird to text a guy after 10 anyway. (He's texted me back at 11 before though.) I know he reads my texts, but now he waits two hours to respond and this drags out a one night conversation for like two days straight. Would a guy change his texting habits if a girl changed hers? Would this bother a guy? I feel like he's mad at me because this isn't a one time thing. Its been going on for awhile. He does text and call me. So this a strange.

  • I've changed my texting habits when talking to a girl. I started out by responding to her texts quickly but she would always take a while, sometimes the entire day. So I started doing the same. It wasn't because I was angry, I did it because I stopped caring. Like if she doesn't respond right away then why should I? He's probably tired after a long day of work and doesn't feel obligated to respond right away because you don't.

    Prime example of why I hate texting, would much rather talk on the phone but that's just me.
