Your mood was just fine a few days ago. The tea couldn’t taste any better. Well, until this guy decided to just stop texting you.
The tea won’t taste as good anymore because you’ve got a question roaming around your head: will he ever text me again?
Well, the short answer is yes, he might text you again. The long answer?
Here are 8 signs he will text you again!
1. He has a pattern of leaving and coming back whenever life gets too busy.
Licensed Professional Counselor, Jodi Clarke, says that being too busy can negatively impact a person’s life.
This also includes the ability to maintain connections and relationships.
If your guy has a tendency of getting too busy with his life and pulling away from you, but also coming back, then he most likely will text you again.
He goes away for a couple of days when he has too much on his plate, and then comes back whenever ‘his plate is clean again’.
It’s up to you if you want to tolerate this behavior, and you don’t have to if it affects you negatively!
Life sometimes gets too busy and it leaves no space for a person to relax and pay attention to other people.
If you’ve noticed a similar pattern with him, then this could be the case. He’ll be back anytime soon!
2. He interacts with things you post on social media!
Does he like or comment on your posts? Or does he view the stories you post on social media?
If so, it means he’s still interested in you and will, most probably, text you.
By interacting with your social media posts, he’s hinting at the fact that he’s still interested in you in some way.
It means he’s still curious to know what you’re up to, what is going on with your life, and that he’s probably planning to return soon.
This could also be his way of getting your attention or even telling you that he’s still into you.
He’s practically telling you he’s still there!
Who knows? Maybe he’s waiting for you to make the first move this time!
3. You two had a minor disagreement.
If you’re reading this because you two had a fight and he hasn’t texted since, I have good news!
Usually, when two people fight and stop talking to each other, they do it out of impulses such as anger and pain.
The good news is that whenever the rush of emotions cools down, those impulses become less impacting.
So, if you’ve had a minor disagreement or fight, he will text you.
I do this too. Whenever I get too upset with a person, I stop talking to them as an initial reaction. It doesn’t mean I don’t care, it just means I need some time.
Acting upon such impulses would probably make me say things I’d regret later, hence, taking my time to cool down seems the rational thing to do.
A little disagreement or argument between two people who are into each other will not be enough to entirely break them apart.
So, yes, it is very possible that he will text you again in hopes of solving the issue and not losing you.
4. You still have each other added on social media.
If he’d plan to entirely cut you off and never text you again, then he’d probably remove you from his socials as well.
This means that whatever reason he has for not texting you, it’s not strong enough to completely cut you out of his life.
By still keeping you there, he’s giving himself the space and time to possibly reach out again: he doesn’t want to cut all contact.
All of this is proof enough that he will in fact—sooner or later—text you again.
5. He hasn’t been active since the last time you two texted.
If he has his activity status on, then go check and see the last time he was active.
If the last time he has been active on the app you two communicate, then he’s very likely to not be doing this intentionally.
Once he’s back on the app, he’ll reach back to you!
It’s not that he doesn’t want to talk to you, it’s more that he can’t.
We truly never know what a person is going through—mentally or physically—and assuming will only bring stress.
Maybe he’s too busy, or going through something, or just something could be going on that has been preventing him from texting you for a while now.
He will text you again.
For now, give him his space, and you take your space.
6. He’s not the type of guy who would cut contact cold turkey.
If he stopped texting you with no explanation, don’t panic.
Take a deep breath and think to yourself:
“Is he the type of guy who would do this?”
I want you to think about that question and come to a conclusion that will be fair for both of you.
Sometimes when we get overwhelmed, we tend to freak out and think irrationally. We overthink stuff that is unlikely to happen!
If you’ve given it a long thought and decided that there’s no way a guy like him could do this, then trust your better judgment.
If he’s a mature and decent guy who has shown to have decent morals, he won’t cut you off cold turkey.
He must have his reasons and no malicious intent behind his sudden disappearance.
This is especially true if he suddenly stopped texting after everything between you two was going swimmingly!
He will most likely text you again whenever he has the chance. And if he’s that decent, he’ll give you a solid explanation regarding his disappearance!
7. He’s posting things on his social media that have a meaning for the two of you.
If things are a bit more complicated than the general narrative of this story, then this is yet another sign that he will text you again.
For whatever reason you two stopped the contact, if he’s posting things on his social media that only the two of you know the meaning of, then he’ll text you!
Sure, he’s being a bit immature since he’s not contacting you directly. But posting things related to inside jokes might be his way to give you a signal.
8. He’s finding any reason to text in group chats where you’re included.
If he wasn’t the type to be the loud one in group chats, and he suddenly became that person, then take notes!
He could be trying to catch your attention by giving you signals.
I know it doesn’t make any sense right now, because “Why would he text in a group chat and not reply to my texts?” is roaming around your head right now.
But, this is often a way for—unfortunately—immature men to play their little games as an attempt to make you jealous or spin your head around them.
Are there any signs that he won’t text you again?
Besides the positive signs, he could be displaying negative ones too.
He abruptly stopped contact with you, hence there’s also the possibility of him not texting you again.
So, are there any signs that he will not text you again?
– He completely changed his behavior toward you.
If you’ve noticed a significant change in his attitude toward you, then chances are he’s lost interest and won’t contact you again.
He doesn’t even try initiating contact with you, and when he does, he’s not fun and cheery the way he used to be: he has almost completely changed.
- He used to flirt with you all the time, and now he doesn’t;
- He’s no longer fun;
- He doesn’t bother making you laugh anymore, etc.
If he stopped acting all lovey-dovey with you and is now drier than a desert, it’s plausible to think that he has lost interest in you.
According to Kelly Campbell, Ph.D., people get “ghosted” because the other person has likely lost interest.
If he has noticeably lost interest in you—for whatever reason—then there’s a high chance that he will not be texting you anytime soon.
– Whenever you two talked, it was because you were the one initiating.
Think back to the last time he texted you first!
If it’s been a while since he texted you first and you had to do the talking, then that leads us to believe that he might not be that interested.
His not texting you first is a sign that he might not want to resume contact.
– He’s very active in all his socials.
If he’s active on his social media during this ghosting period, then I think it’s pretty safe to rule out the possibility of him being too busy.
If his activity status is off the charts but he doesn’t even bother talking to you and replying to your texts, then he might not text you again.
- His activity status is on;
- He posts pictures;
- He replies to comments on his posts;
- His numbers in the following lists change;
- He’s constantly online on the app you two used to talk in.
Such a social media activity hints at his availability and his unwillingness to talk to you.
– He unfriended you on his social media.
If he has already removed you from his socials, then it’s safe to assume he did it with the intent of not having any sort of contact with you.
Don’t take this too lightly as removing someone from your social media is pretty serious and should be taken into consideration.
Would you unfriend someone you fancy and enjoy talking to? Probably not!
Take a step back and think about what his actions mean and how they affect you: sometimes words aren’t needed to express how a person feels.
If he’s removed you everywhere, don’t expect any sort of contact from him—at least not too soon.
– He has been gone for months.
He doesn’t seem to care if you don’t text him either, and presumably won’t initiate contact again.
If he’s been attracted to you, or if he’d think highly of your connection together, then he wouldn’t let months pass by.
He’s been gone for months, we know for sure that the reason why he’s not texting you is not a busy schedule or a rough patch he’s going through.
This goes without saying, especially if you’ve been trying your best to get in touch with him again.
If he’s exhibiting behavior similar to this, then it’s a given that he won’t text again:
- He is active on his social media;
- He hasn’t given you any heads-up;
- He has no responsibilities or priorities that occupy his time;
- Hasn’t tried excusing his lack of presence.
He can talk to you but isn’t doing so, and hasn’t for a while, which only indicates that he potentially won’t.
Don’t allow your happiness to depend on other people!
Whatever his reason might be for not texting you, he’s got a huge red flag for not letting you know about it.
Now, the positions have changed. He’ll have to work hard for your attention. Because ghosting is a big no-no around here!
So, instead of letting your happiness depend on him, go out, have fun, and don’t lose your connection with other people.
Set your priorities and boundaries and act upon them.
He owes you an explanation, and now it’s up to you whether it’s worth listening to it or not!
Shift your focus, care, and attention toward yourself and everything else will fall into place!
