How to react to a guy that doesn't respond for 12 hours?

We are good friends... And feelings from both sides expressed. He says he isn't ready for a relationship but also we live a few hours apart anyway.
He leaves my messages for so long lately.
Then replies 12+ hours later as if he only just got the message. As if not all this time has passed.

Why would a guy do this? Has he absolutely lost interest? And especially, how should I respond? I almost feel silly responding at this point.

And.. He'd been online since.

  • Damn... you bug. Stop tripping.

    • Huh?

    • It means you're overreacting. Chill out. You'll scare him off.

    • Are you sure though because he doesn't always do this... Just feel like I'm being toyed with. I'd finally just asked him what's up. Maybe I shouldn't have but I figure he's been like this lately so guess it probably won't stop anyway...

  • Not really sure as I'm a girl but I do know that everyone has different textng/messaging habits. Some people leave things for a later date (and might forget) and some people only text others when they are bored. If he used to text back immediately and now doesn't then maybe he might be busier or it could be that he might have found someone else. I have a friend who used to text me daily when he thought he had a chance and replied immediately but now only texts me when he's bored (like my others friends).

    • Thanks for writing. I'd definitely reciprocated feelings, very sad he's started to not be in touch like this

    • He may just be slow on replying but he may also have moved on. I would say just be prepared in case he has.
