Well *heard from the boy last night!!* It was actually at like 2:30 am, but oddly enough I had just woken up since I was too hot under all my covers. I briefly debated over whether or not to text back – after all, it was a week night, yes he was working but I would normally be sleeping. But, since I was awake I figured I’d talk to him. So, I was very “reciprocal” for the most part but told a story or two as well. Answered his text with a “heyy :)” and before I ended the convo to go back to bed I said great to hear from you just like I was told by the astrologer.
Ugh and I caved and called Steve yesterday and he didn’t say anything amazing just that he’s going through a “process” and it’s normal and not to worry and it may seem like he’s losing interest but he isn’t. And that we would see each other Friday and things would pick back up but not overnight.
Anyway the conversation was fine – he told me some stuff about his work like he used to so it wasn’t a one-sided convo. That was nice.
Guess smoking him out worked. It took almost 5 days but, it worked. He didn’t mention Friday but I’m sure it’s on his mind and I’ll hear from him again before then.
BTW, I’m debating on creating my own text guide for 20-something males.
To start: When they add multiple letters, like “hiii” or “nighttt” it means they like you. I don’t know why they think adding multiple letters is a plus, but I’ve noticed this.
Second: If they text you when they are out without you and are drinking it’s a good thing and means they are thinking of you. True they might be horny but if you don’t see them and there’s no way to see them and they are still texting you it’s bonus points
Third: A guy who likes you will almost always respond and if he was busy he’ll explain why. Of course sometimes people get caught up, but this should only happen very rarely and feel free to call him on it.
Fourth: Texting is not lazy. It’s a modern way of communication. Is the phone nicer sure, but phone convos are generally only reserved for “more serious” involvements or guys who just prefer the phone. But, if you really want a phone call and you’re communicating regularly, why not call him? Be the change.
Fifth: Until it’s more serious let him text you first most of the time so you can judge his interest level and he doesn’t start to think you’re too demanding/clingy/overly into him/whatever. I like a 2:1 – 3:1 ratio. But always respond.
