I sent him a cute text and he ignored it.

Me and my ex are sort of getting back together (he thinks we're dating again) and on Thursday we had an amazing time together and he was extremely sweet - he wasn't faking it either. I sent him "I'm happy Thursday happened :)" And he never said anything back. What the hell? Should I just ask him about it in person when I see him Tuesday or should I text him again and ask him what's up?

  • hi hun, I know how you feel, I've texted a guy cause I thought he was interested in me, we were friends too, and he never replied. I even texted a 2nd time the next day told him if he was getting my messages or if everything was okay?, still no reply. it was so insulting and I never felt more rejected in my life. even worse when we saw each other in person he was on his phone texting calling others in front of me, straight out ignored me. I thought we were the least- friends. I didn't know texting was such a crime. even if he wasn't interested, we talked all the time in person and had good talks, you would think they would at least continue the friendship. I got over it and ignored him until I didn't have to see him ever again, and he kept trying to say hi and small talk to me, he was like why are you ignoring me? even not being together, I could tell he was a manipulative mind controlling jerk.

    so lesson here is, that sometimes its a blessing in disguise. you don't wanna be with smeone like that. a good boyfriend would never treat his girl like that.

    forget this douche and move on. if he tries to come back, be affirmative and tell him its not going to work out and you wish him all the best. you have to put your foot down and not give into these jerks.

    • I agree with you cause if a girl is acting like that then ill do one. I haven't got time for people like that. But I think sometimes in situations you need to stop texting or talking to someone especially if the person isn't over it. Some people take being friendly as I'm back in there even that isn't true. Hope that makes sense. And if I'm honest we all make a big deal out of texting esp if someone doesn't texted back. A true indication of how someone sees you is how they are with you in person.

  • I'm glad you guys are getting back together but wouldn't you agree that if you'd wanted him to reply you should have stated some kind of question to reply to.

    I was just talking to a friend of mine a few days ago about his girlfriend and he started ranting to me that she keeps sending him texts that he doesn't know how to respond to so he doesn't anymore since there's too many of them.

    I don't know but if I think about it most of the times I've sent texts like that to girls I never got a reply but when I sent something like "Hey I had a great time last night hope we can do it again on Tuesday?" then I at least got a reply.

    I would suggest leaving it at that because my friend gets really annoyed when his girlfriend then keeps asking him does he not love her because he didn't reply and stuff. I understand the frustration of someone not replying believe me I've been there but it can give of a too needy vibe witch can hurt your relationship.

    Why did you guys break up anyway?

    I remember whenever we broke up with my ex of 8 years and then got back together it was really frustrating because we both agreed that some thing should change but some things always stayed the same. Like the neediness and it was one of the first things that we started to fight about again.

    • I agree about the way your texts are sent. My friend the other sent me a text, " We should that place up in the afternoon." I didn't reply because to me that text was a "thought out loud." Shouldn't they have asked "do you want to hit up that place this afternoon?" If I don't reply, you can say with greater certainty that I didn't reply to you. And if you ask a lot of "validation" texts, yes, those get annoying.

    • Yeah those validation texts are problematic. It's always nice to receive a nice text from someone and it's even nicer to receive a reply but if the original text is sent only so that the other person will send a reply and then have a bunch of problems because someone didn't reply.

  • Don't read into non-text replies, seriously don't ever read into them.

    Sometimes people just forget to respond because they were busy when they checked the text, or maybe he was half awake when he checked it. Texts are "not" a good way of communicating time sensitive and pertinent information. If you want somebody to respond to you right away, call them.

    I can't overstate this enough.

    • Thank god...at least SOMEONE knows what he's talking abt. Couldn't agree more :D

    • While I tend to agree with that statement, as it happens that I forget about a text and forget to answer it, wouldn't you think that if he's serious about her, or at least their new start, he would have at least answered one way or the other, even if it was just a simple ''Me too :) '', or at least, if he didn't feel the same way, to at least have the decency to call back and try to talk about it a bit and not wait a whole week?

    • Maybe he's shy. Maybe he's busy. Maybe he's in the hospital. Maybe his phone died. We don't know.

      Every person is different. "Many" people would be more eager, yes, but not everybody works that way. It's best to take non-communication at face value and not to guess at the motive for it. It's much better to inquire about it vocally if it's something that's bothering somebody.

  • I wouldn't say anythng while I'm still angry. Give it enough time for you to calm down. Something sudden may have happened and he had no time for texting.

    And maybe he is just not sensitive, and didn't know that a message like yours REQUIRES a reply!

    Maybe he's one of those guys who thinks it's not manly to be 'mushy..'

  • For sure ask him about it but if he's still so emotionally distant then he obviously changed his mind and really doesn't see it working again, why did you break up in the first place? maybe it will give you some clue, maybe he just isn't really sure about the whole idea, are you sure about getting back with him?.

  • Hmmm it's hard to say. Although it's just a text and people have can get busy, texts only take 60 seconds to reply to at most. If I were you, I'd text him like "Fine. Don't reply to my adorableness. I didn't even notice. Hmph!" but don't make a habit out of that when it comes to texting because it can make you come off as clingy.

  • Just mention it on Tuesday when you see him again, if it still bothers you by then. Just randomly ask him if he got your message :)
