so i met a guy and we will text everyday all day. he goes to sleep really late and i always fall asleep on him so i would text him in the morning every day and the convo will continue on till i fall asleep again. so this time i decided to not text him when i woke up to see if he would text me. it has been two days. is this normal for him to not text me yet or am i over reacting?
Too soon to tell, let me know what happens. That’s the problem with texting too much at the beginning. When one person tapers off things get weird and then you start to over-analuze just like you said. Sometimes a relation starts out as constant nonstop texting. Eventually though, people have to get on with their day and the flurry of texts that are exchanged starts to fizzle. Maybe when you didn’t text him that morning he realized that he should give it a rest and was holding out to hear from you. If you really like him don’t blow him off yet do cut back on the texting until you both text at a more normal pace. A few a day, or a longer conversation every couple of days at the most. Anything more than that is overkill.
In the grand scheme, texting means so little about a relationship and it can be just a form of useless procrastination. All that matters is if he actually starts to spend time with you. What counts is if he has a place in your real life, not just your cyber text life. If your entire thing is just texting he is only a penpal. Not sure what your texts are about but be forewarned that if his texts become physically explicit, he is less than a penpal, he’s just a horny guy that is using you for idle entertainment and an ego stroke. Don’t let a text buddy drag you down into that status.
