I've been told before I was a lousy texter. I would open and read but not respond. I am severely absent minded and actually don't have my phone on me at all times because of my profession. I sometimes can't physically respond and by the time I can I've forgotten. I can see how this would be off putting to someone. Personally if a guy texts "Wyd" or "hey" I will not respond. It shows 0 effort or interest on their part. Lazy if I may say so. There are, of course, exceptions for me but it normally is a huge turn off!! What's yours?
