I know this is not a big deal in the moment, but nonetheless it's annoying because it's happened several times now. I guess I want to know what you guys would do in this petty situation.
On most days, this guy I'm dating will text me mid-morning and ask me how I'm doing. It's usually almost the exact same wording every day which is boring. I reply within 15 mins of him sending it and in the text I'll also ask how he's doing. I usually include some unique tidbit of the morning instead of some boring script. Last few times, he didn't respond to my text. This is really annoying. I don't want to play games, but whether we want to admit it or not, it's eventually a power play on his part. One person waiting on the other instead of an equal flow of reciprocation. Last couple days I started to realize he does this. At first it didn't really bother me, I just figured he got busy. But c'mon. Last night he texted me asking me if I was up, and this was oh uh 9 hours after my reply to him also asking how his day's going.
After he didn't reply to my pretty novel reply to HIM this a.m., I decided that if he pulls the late night text, IM or call tonight, I'm going to let it go unanswered. Then tomorrow midday I'll text him, how are you? and let him answer. Then ignore it. That should do it.
Gee, if you text someone asking them how they're doing. They take the time to reply to you, and also ask you how you're doing. You're suppose to reply! Or chances are that they will stop replying to you. It seems like common sense etiquette. He should get with it because I could easily do away with texting all together. Lord!
