I don't mean your bf/gf I mean just someone you're interested in or casually dating?
Just curious to see where people stand with this.
How often do you text a person you're interested in?

At least everyday. If I like you I want to maintain a connection with you regularly. Familiarity makes me comfortable, and makes you become more apart of my life.3
Life is fucking short! Stop playing elementary games! Text and talk, you know if you like them... if they're not recognizing or reciprocal then slowly back away and move on... People will communicate with who they want when they want!7
Not to much as she travels so much and I gotta study and am busy with my nieces a lot. But lucky for me she understands.1
There's a girl I really like... I've been trying to text her daily as much as I can. She deals with some difficult mental health issues and I worry for her so I try to make a point of being there to take her mind of stuff.1
When I want. I don't try and play dumb games. I just talk to them for as long or as short as the conversation goes and I don't worry about anything else. People I'm talking to now? At least a few hours a day.1
Depends how I feel... it can be anything from strategic messages during strategic times or full blown conversations as if She's right here with me all day and night
One a week I guess. I don't text for conversation, I would call for that. A text is more a quick message of confirmation or to organize something and write down the info.
Then it depends on how they reciprocate. At worst, I probably will fight the urge to text or call and can go a whole month without contact.2
Plenty of times! I rarely ever text anyone. Unless you’re a crush or someone I’m genuinely interested in, I will take a lot of action towards our relationship. Otherwise, I wouldn’t and that would simple mean that I don’t like you as much as you think.2
I'll text as often as she likes and as infrequent as she likes, I'll just let her control it. But I'd much rather talk on the phone as it seems anyone can type and easier to play games. I'm old fashioned and prefer talking.2
You never wanna be the one who's overly interested or even appears that way and if she's not putting in any effort or giving short replies consistently then I move on.2
if i could magically get their number... very often, i really do not know a tactful way of asking them upfront and get nervous.. sometimes it is easier for me to text things , i dont have problem talking to women bomen but usually they have to start with even the dumbest statement, i always afraid my stupid statemen scare the off... ithink i just thought of a new question lol
Message for message1
Usually when I go to bed, wake up, and whenever they message, I tey to keep a convo of sorts going. Though it is usually snapchat.1
I usually don't care if a girl stops texting me back, but there is this one girl that I really like and I would be a bit upset if she stopped texting me. If I really liked a girl I wouldn't stop texting her lets put it that way.1
I do it when i remember him/her.
I do it when i need him/her.
I do it when i miss him/her5
I would text a girl who i was interested in often to show her that i cared
about her but i wouldn't want come off as thirsty and text her compulsively.1
I will usually initiate the first text, but after 2-3 times, I will let them initiate almost all of the conversations.1
Probably often enough to start pissing them off.3
I think it should be a mutual back and forth if the person your texting doesn't reach out to you dont force it3
The more interested i am the less I seem to text since it makes me look busy and stops me wrecking things and keeps girls more keen.1
I more like her facebook posts I guess.1
Once a week.1
Well, I just texted my landlord to fix my toilet, so I hope he doesn't think I'm interested in him! lol1
When I want to depending on the chick1

I am trying so hard not to text him now! I want to text him at least every day, but I dare not. He knows how to text. He'll text me if he wants to text me. lol we've had two dates and another scheduled for Sun. He texted me yesterday and I answered him this morning. So I guess I'm texting him every day.5
It depends on the day or person. If I'm busy or they are it might be once a day or for hours at a time. I prefer phone conversation over text if we aren't able to physically hangout. I'm not into games so if I wanna text someone I will and feel them out it they want to or can text at that moment.4
As little as possible and i will tell them that and ask for the same id rather not really even call or text its just flat and pointless and creates want and neediness and apparently for some pure torment if they its been read and they haven't replied...
id rather just see you when we planned... hhhmmm anyone remember those days...2
Maybe once - twice a week. I chat about school stuff then move on to their stuff in the chat. We're in the beginning though. I don't know how he feels yet so taking it slow.3
Maybe everyday. If we hit it off really well, we would tone down on the messages and probably opt for phone calls instead2
it can be different for different people.. but it's definitely more than rest of the people they talk to.. I don't really talk to anyone everyday.. not even my best friend.. but If I like someone.. I'd try and squeeze in a text or two everyday lol.. only if he likes me too..1
If the convo is flowing we can chit chat, text, talk until that cows come home. But really throughout the day.1
If your age is accuraye, I'd start off at 1-2 times a week one to say hi or thanks for the last date/I had fun/etc and one to hopefully plan another date. If he initiates a text that may be another 1-2 interactions in a week so 3-4 texts/ week is probably enough to show interest but not appear as a Stage 5er.1
On daily basis without being too pushy.
But sometimes if I sent the last message and he left me on read, I will wait for him to start the conversation (depends if that guy is shy or not)1
Usually everyday but its whenever they want to talk to me, that way if its often i know theyre someone i could have a good relationship with2
I’m not a big fan of texting. If I can’t find things to talk about I just don’t reply. It’s easier to talk about things in person anyway. Texting can cause you to take things out of context.3
I text my husband several times a day! He's the only guy that holds my interest!!2
I talk as long as he keeps replying. Sometimes I'll message a guy if I think of something they might like during the day when we aren't talking too1
Im so weird. I like the guy but I'm still too scared to text him. I'll email him but not text.
There was one time I emailed him (it was work related - as he works in our head office) and he was like "no text me".
I'm still too shy 👀2
Daily or as often as they want to talk to me1
Consistently but not to over the top especially if you work or have other things going on.1
I don't like texting but he can call me or I call him. then we hang out. but we talk everyday <31
Not so often, but still enough I guess haha
in general I don't like to text daily with someone, no matter with whom1
Once a day..
Unless im always the lne to text first. Then i check if they text too and if they dont i might text another time after 2 days
And if i feel like the first "try" didn't go well and i think we can do it better i text another time
But this is only talking about starting the conversation1
Depends... if I'm not busy then I'd text them all the time, only if they message back though1
2-3 times/week. I try not to let a convo be longer than it needs to be either if it's just pleasantries. I try to be the first to leave a conversation at least half the time or more to keep them wanting more.1
Given I'm excluded to give an answer because I'm dating, I apologise that I don't cheat.1
2-3 times in a week, but I'll really straight up tell them that I like them, but I don't date people on the internet so I'll say no to dating.2
A few times a day. Maybe less or more. Depends on how busy I am. At the very least, once a week to make plans1
