We have all been there. You send a message to him, an hour passes, then a day and no response yet. You even reboot your phone and remove the battery just to make sure that your phone is okay. Still, no messages from him.
Reasons why guys take forever to respond to text messages

What could be the problem? Is he okay or is he just ignoring you? We have listed some of the reasons as to why guys take so long to respond to SMS.
1. He doesn’t want to seem desperate
If it’s a guy you just met recently, he is probably trying not to seem so desperate. So he is just buying sometime but he will finally reply if he is interested. Men don’t want to seem so needy and they know that if they do, you might lose interest in them.
2. He is paying back
Sounds petty but believe you me, guys enjoy this game. If you usually take long to respond to a guy’s messages without a good reason, why wouldn’t he do the same?
3. He is not in the mood
No? Guys too get moody. Could be something is bothering him and he is not in the mood of being chatty.
4. He is not interested
Sorry honey, but if a guy always takes hours to respond to your messages, he might be trying to tell you that he is not interested. So, will you just stop flooding his inbox with messages? It’s good for your heart.
5. He is not an SMS person
Texts messages are not for everyone. Some guys feel that they can’t express themselves well through text. With such men, they would rather call than send messages.
6. He’s truly busy
Some guys are genuinely busy. Once they get time, they are likely to reply and apologize for taking too long.
