All my friends who are girls say it's up to the guy to text first. So basically if I don't text or call them then we won't talk. And I'm just thinking "we're friends but you aren't willing to text me?" I get a little upset by it. It's one thing if I'm trying to date them but I'm not, and I get upset that my friends are unwilling to start a conversation with me.
Do you girls do this too?

In my experience my male friends don't text as frequently as my female friends do. Which leads me to believe they're busy and I feel like I'm bugging them if I text them first (sometimes, other times I don't care). The major issue with us females is we don't wanna be annoying to men therefore, the best way to be less annoying is to just wait for them to decide they wanna talk to us.
This though changes based on how close I am personally with the male. If it's one of my really close male friends I'll annoy the heck out of them and not care. Usually I'm more hesitant to text a guy first if it's someone I'm attracted to or like just out of the fear of coming off clingy so that might be something to take into consideration.
I have one particular male friend who tend to have a fluctuating friendship with me. One month we're buddies the next there's a lot of flirtation and basis for a possible relationship. Whether or not I text them first is based on where our friendship stands. If he comes off friendly and kids around with me then I have no problem starting up a convo (probs because there's no tension and stress of what might happen) if he's flirty then... yeah I'm waiting for him.1
