No one is basing how worthy you are off of how quickly you text them back. If you see a message from him and are in a place to respond, respond.Chances are he either has a reason for waiting that long to text you back, or he's just not the kind of guy that's all about his phone.
But then I mentioned it to my other single friends—both men and women—and they all professed similar experiences.What’s one of the most frequent lies men and women use?About a year ago I began dating a girl who was a horrible text responder. When I first asked her out, it took her three days to reply. When it comes to dating, no one wants to come off as too eager, but that seemed excessive.Not only that, but their texts would pinball between flirty and curt.My natural instinct, of course, was to assume I was doing something wrong.Though I found it annoying at the time, I didn't worry too much about it.I figured that her carrier-pigeon-paced responses were just her own misguided way of implementing "the chase." But then I dated two more women right after her who did the exact same thing.A major factor which adds to the existent stress and confusion during this period is game-playing.Oh, if I could only count the number of times I’ve heard clients recount stories about the annoying games men and women play in dating.To be honest, I find the latter to be quite an attractive trait.I call the beginning phase of dating “Dating Limbo” because no one knows yet what will become of the relationship.
