just as a general question, is it common that someone 'ceebs' with replying to your messages. i have a few mates that are like that, but the guy im dating says 'i should reply more often, im being too lazy' is it common or is this a bad sign?

: / I'm probably the wrong person to answer this question because I don't reply to messages in the most timely manner.
Back in the day when I had less of a social life and generally less obligations, I was asking the same exact question! Honestly, I simply just had a whole lot of time on my hand. So much time that it was obviously apparent when someone didn't reply to my text within an hour. However, now that my social life and duties have expanded, it's not realistic for me to reply to messages within a certain amount of time. I'm the type of person who likes to put thought into my messages unless it's a very basic convo about plans or something. So if I don't have the time to put thought into the message, then I'll just wait to respond when I do. I'm sincerely very busy and when I don't have plans, I'm spending a lot of time driving *I don't text and drive*. When I come home and chill, I tend to forget about my phone and often times, I'll leave it charging in another room while I occupy myself.
Anyway, the guy is being a tad bit sensitive for claiming you're lazy. The fact that you can't reply A. S. A. P. could suggest that you are too busy being productive. Contrary, if you were really lazy, you would be sitting around, not doing anything and most of your time would be opportune to reply to messages quickly. Anyhow, I've learned that the more social and busy your friends and the ones you're dating are, the more common this gets. The less social and less busy people tend to be, the more time they have to sit around and get aggravated over that.0
