Guys do it too. I texted a guy I like and he takes anywhere from 4-5 hours to get back.

The reason you get ignored a lot is because its just pointless texting. Your giving her meaningless text that lead her nowhere. If you really want to get her attention ask her "what are you doing right now" if she text "nothing" or something boring like "laying on my bed" ask her if she wants to go to the movies, aquarium, or run an erand with you. Anything to get her out of her home. I bet you'll get a lot of replies back.
