I've heard this concern many times by men.
A guy and a girl go out regularly. They have a great time, and they even get physical. Yet, when it comes to calling and texting, the girl isn't responsive. She gives one-word answers or sometimes she ignores it completely, without apology.
Why is this?
- She is super-busy?
- She doesn't like to text
- She's trying not to appear desperate?
I'm thinking it's the third option
The woman goes out with him several times. They have a great time when they go out, and they even get physical. Yet when it comes to calling and texting, she just isn't responsive to him.

I can honestly say this is me, oops haha.
I just don't like to text. The only time I really text is about important matters and to make plans to hangout. If I want to have a conversation, I'll text you and ask you if you're free to come over or to get coffee or something.
Also, I'm busy working most of the day, and I'm not allowed to have my phone at work. When I get home, the only thing I want to do is rest. If you maybe ask me a question I'll answer it but if you just text "Hey (:" and this conversation is probably not going anywhere, I'm not responding.
Texting is hard. Sarcasm doesn't translate well over text and because it's a permanent thing that can be seen over and over again, you have to think carefully about everything you type so that nothing is misconstrued. That's why I prefer talking in person.
I have apologized to some people about it, I've had a few guys act offended by it but honestly I don't think it's such a big deal if I don't text back. It doesn't mean I'm not into you. I'm not playing games being "hard-to-get" or whatever. I'm just not a texter.0
