Texting. I have issues with texting. The real issue is that texting is ubiquitous and it’s not going anywhere soon. Instead of using it as a way to say hi or let you know he’s running late, it becomes a crutch for real relationship communication. These days, there are men who use it as the ONLY way of keeping in touch, texting is a shitty form of communication.

If the guy doesn’t respond, ignores your requests for phone time, and treats the phone as if it’s only a means to text, you know what you do?
You cut him loose. No emotion. Matter of fact.
You seem like a good guy, [Insert Name], but I’m not looking for a texting buddy, I’m looking for a boyfriend. And since all you’ve done is text me daily for the past sixteen months without any increased effort, I’m going to take that as a sign that you’re not that interested in a relationship. No hard feelings. I wish you the best of luck in your search. Take care.”
Don’t be afraid that you’re losing your potential boyfriend. You’re not. You’re freeing yourself of the burden of waiting for an indifferent man to show you he cares. If he cared about you, he’d WANT to call you, WANT to see you, WANT to commit to you.
The texter has already shown his stripes. All you’re doing is calling him on it.
