Guys, why don't you answer text messages?

most likely he does this not cause he does not want to seem to needy. A rule of thumb for guys is that if you answer the girl right back you show to much interest and come of as needy which is bad. as long as he at least answers the next day its probably OK
in plane words just because he takes time to answer does not mean he is not interested. If however it takes longer and longer before he answers and abowe2 days or no answer at all then you get the draft:)

If he replies back at all, he's probably interested. And the sooner the better. But if he doesn't reply back at all, he either forgot or doesn't care. He might be busy, his phone might have died, or he might just have nothing to reply back with. Make sure your texts aren't just "haha" and have actual substance.
Why don't you ask him to meet up and hang out instead of using texting as your only means of communication?
