first off, a guy that I really like who I think likes me back told me that he was gonna text me, which made me really excited because we had never texted before and I gave him my number a long time ago. I told some of my friends about this and some of them said that he probably won't text me for 2 days because they follow the "boy code" just so they make the girl anxious or whatever. is this true?
but today is the third day and he still hasn't texted me so is this just stupid gossip or is it true? and how long should I wait before I should just let it go?

"The Code" does exist for a lot of guys, but isn't directly about dating; it's designed to prevent problems among guys.
The famous "three day rule" isn't usually considered part of "the code", but it is used by a lot of people. Yes, it's supposed to make you (the girl) more anxious, but it's also supposed to give you the impression that we're not anxious. For what it's worth, as guys get older, they use that three day rule less and less. We figure out soon enough that it's a pretty silly rule and it's not doing us any good. Hey, we're cute, not bright.
