    I try to reply within a week. I refuse to be a text slave.

    Depends entirely on 

    1) can the response wait – if my SO messages me saying ‘in the supermarket, do we need milk?’ Then I answer right away. 

    2) do i need to write a lengthy response – if someone messages me saying ‘I hear youve had a bad day. What happened?’ But at that point I was busy – then I would message once I am next available. 

    I try and respond to messages before that day ends. If for whatever reason I really cant then I would say ‘im so sorry. I’m not ignoring you. I’m doing x, y and z and will message you in a bit’
