(Before It's News)
I always have a reason for not texting someone back.
These are those reasons.
And yes, they're in order – of most regular occurrence.
1) I'm busy.
I'm in a moment where I see your text but I legitimately can't stop what I'm doing to answer you.
2) My phone is on silent and/or died.
I honestly prefer keeping my phone on silent so I don't have to be hearing it going off every few minutes. Instead, I can just have it on silent and go look at all my notifications when I have the time to. My phone very rarely dies, but there's also that reason.
3) I'm sleeping.
And you should be too…….. Unless it's one of those rare midday naps I rarely get to partake of.
4) I don't have time.
If your text is something that I know will trigger a long conversation but I don't have the time to give you the full attention it deserves, then I won't respond at all.
5) You're annoying
And I honestly have no idea why I gave you my number.
6) I never gave you my number
And there are clear reasons for that, so why would I encourage you to text me by texting you back?
