Have an opinion?
It could be from numerous of reasons. Sometimes it doesn't cross their mind to text first; that they always expect her to initiate the conversation. Other times it's to avoid awkwardness in hoping the girl they're talking to isn't thinking of them being a creep and such. There's also the consideration of him being too distracted by other things like video games, chatting with guy friends and such.Sometimes all we need is a little reminder of it. Any guy that cares will make an effort to split the initation 50/50 at the very least to show they do have interests in her.
So really your question is... why don't men have to do 100% of the initiation of conversations instead of just the 95% that they do now?
Never happened to me. Maybe you are giving mixed signals?
In this modern era of "toxic masculinity" *cough*bullshit*cough*, a man is far less likely to be socially engaging with a woman, unless he already knows it's a sure bet. As a man who has made the mistake of saying "Hello" to a co-worker in an elevator, only to hear from my boss - 3 days later - that I was "creepy" (WTF?)... Why the hell would I text first?
You shouldn't have to. I think both need to do some of the texting. But I also think when a guy does do that it is frankly a stroke of the ego because he has a mindset of her pursuing him and it is the wrong mindset. If you like someone you should tell them up front.
That entire thought process is what I hate about dating. Boys or girls should not HAVE an obligation to do the first anything! Besides, in the modern world, boys can be labeled as clingy, f*ckboys or perverts after sending 2 messages to a girl, so it's normal for them to be hesitant to start a conversation with a stranger!And it's not a question of if she's attractive enough, if a question of if she's approachable enough, or if the guy is shy or not
I was like that. It was generally bcaus emy ex's were texting all the time. If I tended to not hear from the, for a while I would tend to say hey.
Like what @skeetskeetskeet says. If we message first we get seen as desperate or thirsty etc. blame your fellow women for being this ridiculous.
It depends. I always do, but Sometimes it's not right away because I work a lot and have children. Some men are worried they will seem too needy. Others only text when they want something (Sex).
Too shy, too uncertain, don´t want to blame themselves etc.
In my case, I want to see if it is possible to go my whole life without starting, and upholding every conversation I've ever had, and will have.
In my experience and the world in general it's almost always the complete opposite tbh lol
Who cares? If you want to text him, text him. If you don't, don't. It's very simple.
Maybe he is busy or prefers another method of communication
Maybe they can't let's say on such app some one not expert enough to send massages Maybe in life too even if he likes her
No i think its guys who always text first and girls who always look arrogant to reply
not always true not all guys are the same just like, not all girls have the same taste or likes
Maybe they didn't find what they were looking for in the girl.
Because if we called or texted as often as we wanted to you'd say we were clingy and we'd never get laid
Never heard that before.
I hate texting in general but that's just me
Because they are scared of rejection
Because they don't wanna look desperate.
