We have heard this story time and again. A girl meets a cute guy, they are getting along great, they go out on a date and everything goes well. The guy is responding to every text or Snapchat within 15 or 20 minutes. In fact, most of the responses are within minutes, if not seconds. Then, all of the sudden, the girl sends a Snapchat picture or text, he opens it, but doesn’t respond.
This is very unlike him because he has been extremely responsive for the last few days or weeks. Why would he all the sudden stop responding. He may end up responding like three or four hours later or maybe even the next day. The girl may play hard to get and won’t respond for another day. The next thing they both know, they aren’t communicating at all and both people are extremely confused.
This is not unusual and do not feel as if someone doesn’t like you just because they aren’t responding as quickly to your texts or Snapchats. If you want to play the game, the best thing you can do is go find some other form of entertainment. If you are a fun, smart and attractive girl you are not going to find it difficult to get attention from another guy.
If you start dating or hanging out with other guys, you won’t even notice that one of them does not text you within 15 or 20 minutes of you texting him. If you get one-itis and monitor every text and wait for a response, you are going to drive yourself crazy.
We strongly urge you to drop all expectations of a response whether it is on Snapchat or text. The more you expect of him the more stress you are going to put on a very young relationship. Enjoy the time you do get to talk to him or spend with him and find other things to do when he is not responsive. The worst thing you can do is to keep Snapchatting or texting. You are going to push him away if you do that.
