Though we try to keep our cool, an unanswered text message is basically the worst thing that can happen to a girl. The waiting game can make your thoughts bounce between thinking he is ignoring you or worrying you might have done something wrong.
But there is a large sum of people out there who don’t consider cell phones as an extremity and, as a result, will take more time to respond to you.
So instead of assuming they aren’t interested in you, maybe you should try to embrace the fact that they have a life of their own that doesn’t completely revolves around technological devices and social media.
