Do unanswered texts bother you? If so, what do you do to help the situation?
Please explain after voting.

Here's what I do if the text I sent was important:

- I may send a follow up text in a few hours or a day or so. Usually I won't send more than 2 follow ups. In some cases I might just call. (i. e., "Hello?", "hey did see see my last message?")
- OR -
- If I know I'll see them in person soon, I'll wait until then to ask them if they got my text instead of following up via text. If they're a dear friend, I let them know that I get really concerned when I don't get a reply.

If they still get unresponsive after I explained to them that it bothers me*, I'll remain civil but detach from the friendship. I accept that our communication style isn't compatible and that they probably aren't a true friend.
* If it gets to the point where I have to keep reminding them it bothers me, the friendship isn't worth putting anymore energy into.
