How soon and how often is acceptable in responding to text or Instant messages?

I am wondering how often is too often to respond to messages a person would receive from someone else. I don't want to be annoying, needy, but I would like to get to know the person. I like back and forth conversations, not just one sided. Is there a good rule to follow as to how soon to respond and how much to respond?

  • For me, there's no right or wrong. I sometimes reply instantly, other times if I'm really busy I will leave it for a while but if I want to have a conversation and the other person is online, then I don't see why you have to wait a certain amount of time. It's only clingy/needy if you text someone non stop throughout the day..
