How long to wait before texting? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I met a girl and we talked a huge amount and got really close, ending up having sex a few times. Over the course of around 10 days, we texted a huge amount, sometimes a few times a day, sending each other long texts filled with emoji and questions and opinions (like family and stuff too).

    However, we've both now started uni on opposite ends of the country (first year) and have become a bit distant where initially, our texting slowed to every other day, to once every few days and now about one or two times a week. We both started uni about 2 weeks ago. Our texts have also become shorter and now I feel like she delays her messages on purpose (i.e. I send a few sentences one day, then she'll reply like 3 days later), even though she very occasionally posts stuff on facebook in the meantime. Maybe she's delaying because she's busy with uni (which she said) and/or because we're running out of things to talk about. Or is she losing interest? Also, how long should I wait after receiving a text/response from her- a few days or just text the following day? I might be overthinking everything but I'm not sure.

    You're kind of overthinking here, I'd say wait a couple weeks, uni has just started and maybe she's really just busy. Maybe try and set up something for the weekend or idk, try and have something that you're both looking forward to, I think it may help
