    Yess being busy, what do you think ? Is it an excuse or is it genuine ?

    In regards to anything like crushes or even family. Now I know some of my family who dont speak to and when they do, I say where were you before in the last few weeks. They'll say oh we were busy.

    However ive been through uni and full time work, to me you cant actually be that busy, you can still message someone or phone them if you really wanted to, you will always have some time spare.

    This is the same for crushes aswell, you cant really be that busy, but if you are you would still message back.

    Sometimes I use busy as an excuse that's more actually along the lines of "I have lots of things going on in life and in my head that left me with no energy to really bother speaking to anybody/made me miss a few of your messages and replying late felt weird"

    Shorthand excuse: "I don't want to speak to you".

    Yeah but not in the "I don't want to speak to you because you're a ******" sense

    As I was saying busy is generally an excuse. It annoys me when someone says that I was busy and text you 2 weeks later.
