Both 20 in college btw
So I'm really good friends with this girl and developed feelings for her recently. I'm a bit bummed out about her texting habits though.
-Never texts first
-Sometimes gives closed responses like "hahahaha" or ":D" (A closed response is a response that CAN'T provoke more conversation)
When I pick up the conversation after a closed response, I sometimes get a lengthy or a genuine answer
Her: Hahahaha! (<--- closed response)
Me: So about (blablabla)
Her: (Genuine response)
And most importantly:
- If she's busy and forgets to text back... I HAVE to send another text later to get a convo going. Because she does not text first
All in all I'm not sure if forcing myself to re-text is bothersome to her, or worth it!
- Keep retexting!Vote A
- Dont bother retextingVote B
- Other (post what)Vote C

Call me old fashioned but I never text a guy first. I want to know he is interested in me and I know he does because he texts me first. But I do reply. This was the situation when I first started dating the guy I'm seeing now. At first he told me he didn't know if I was interested because I never initiated the texts. BUT he did say he assumed I was because I kept on going out with him and I did reply back.
Perhaps she is this type but if she is NOT replying back or not really trying to have a genuine conversation then Id let it go.
Try not texting her for a few days and see if she does it first.0
