Just wanted to get some opinions on this.
I strongly believe that when a man is into you, he’ll WANT to text you all the time. Not like maybe once a week.
But then I have people telling me, “Well maybe he’s just super busy and it’s not the first thing on his mind!”
Is that true? Idk.. when I’m SWAMPED at work, I always still have time to look at my phone at least once to reach out to someone I like. Like when is someone ever really too “busy?”
I think when a guy doesn’t reach out to a girl he says he likes, it means he honestly just doesn’t care. What do you think?

I think you’re right, especially true in the beginning of a relationship. If someone honestly doesn’t have time to text me until a week later, not really interested.

i completely agree and what i learned from dating. if a guy is into you, you will know it. there will be no wondering if he is going to call, when he will call and questioning if he likes you or not. you will just know.

If he’s into you, he’ll text no matter how busy. I have a friend who is dating a surgeon…and he return texts IN BETWEEN surgeries. My then bf/now FI texted me all the time, and he was and has always been a super busy guy. That’s my two cents…

I think “too busy to text” is only valid if it’s a few hour long time span. Otherwise, if you have time to look at your phone, you have time to text. Which is why it makes me totally pissed when someone doesn’t respond to me, whom I know spends 99% of their time staring at their phone

@chicagoworkinggirl: It sounds so cliche, but it’s true – if a guy is into a girl, he will go out of his way to contact her/talk to her. When I was single and a guy would text once a week or say he was “really busy” when taking forever to respond to my texts, it meant that he just wasn’t into me or in some cases, dating/relationships overall.

@June14Bride: I mean shoot on Gray’s anatomy the nurses read their text’s and respond for them during surgery! Can’t be that hard! hahahaha

I don’t know about texting all the time, but certainly more than once a week.
My FI is a surgeon’s assistant and he too texts me all the time in between cases. I’m a teacher so I can’t get to my phone as easily, so he texts me more than I text him.
In fact, we actually talk on the phone way more than texting, especially when we first got together.

@chicagoworkinggirl: It’s been my experience that if a guy likes you, you’ll know because he will make time for you (i.e. texting, dates, etc).

I think it depends. I work in an environment where we don’t have cell phones. So even if I’m not too busy to text, my phone is locked up in my car. Maybe he just doesn’t have a phone?

I mean my FI has never been a huge texter but he’s never gone more than like a work shift without responding. We hardly text now that we live together.

@chicagoworkinggirl: Agreed- if he’s into you, he’ll make the time!

@chicagoworkinggirl: I don’t think its necessarily a matter of “too busy”, but some people just don’t like to text. My boyfriend doesn’t text me very often, and it’s just something I’m used to. But he doesn’t text his mom, or his siblings, or his dad, or his work friends either. He’s just a bad texter. If he has a spare moment or a break/lunch at work, he usually calls me. If he has the day off and I’m working, he’s way more likely to send me a little text checking in, or the link to an article he read and thought I’d like, etc.

When just starting to date, I totally agree with this. You don’t have to chase people who want you. If this applied long term then it would mean that my loving boyfriend is just not into me anymore 🙁
