Should I wait until he texts me?

Really interested in this guy but he absolutely sucks at texting back or keeping a text conversion going. I texted him yesterday and we had a short conversation and I didn't respond because I had no idea what else to say. My best friend thinks I shouldn't text him again until he reaches out to me. I know he will be back from out of town this week but he will have more training to do the first week of December, so if we don't meet this week I won't see him for another two weeks. Then of course Christmas and New years is coming right after that. I feel like I should just communicate the way I know he responds to but I hate pursuing all the time. What should I do?

He's 36 and I'm 24. He has 3 kids and has been divorced for 4 years.
