So my ex and I are trying to make things work again so we are taking things slow.. just yesterday he texted me and he was being flirty and even calling me babe. Today I msgd him in the morning "hey hope you have a good day" and its evening and still I have yet to get a response. In a way I didn't leave a question on the last message but out of courtesy wouldn't you say something back? Should I text a sarcastic remark like "Are you alive" or wait to see if he will say why he didn't message me back or when he msgs me should I tell him I didn't appreciate his non response. I don't know am I over thinking it in general? I just feel it doesn't take much to say thank you hope you have a good day as well.

Remember there is no protocol for texting. No text etiquette exists in our culture as of Jan 2015. Are you over thinking it? YES. Stop thinking about this guy. Text someone else, anyone (mom, friend, other guy) and also erase the unresponded to text. Go back to how it was when you guys first broke it off. People don't need a "hey hope you have a good day" text every morning. Worry about your day and how great it's going to be, not his. Don't text this guy until he gets in touch with you first. Yes, it's tough but that feeling under your skin that can only be relieved by hitting send on a second message, will go away. Wait it out.
And also don't express dissatisfaction with his behavior, at least not yet. Do this instead: know that this guy is the type that doesn't return a message. Confronting, complaining and/or over thinking is a waste. He will not change. Any quick change because of your protests would be temporary. Eventually he'll revert to being the same guy possibly like before when you broke up in the first place. Keep talking to other guys until this one starts putting out real effort. Make yourself too busy to care.1
