Hey all, I been having trouble trying to message this girl. She's been someone I've liked for a while now and today I finally had the nerve to text her. The conversations started off poor with dry replies but it's now picking up. My issue is that she takes up to an hour to reply. Seriously. Now, I'm not a dumb ass. I know what it means. So I was going to stop talking the next time she replies. But now the weird this is she's asking me question and throwing laughing emoji's and such (probably sarcasm). I'm genuinely confused here. She'e really pretty and I can't just let this go but... Maybe I'll keep it going and see where it takes me?

Do just that. See how it goes
Have you considered she may be busy and you are not the sole focus of her attention?

I think if she was totally uninterested she would leave the convo asap. But the fact she asks questions to carry on the conversation is a good sign. She might just be a busy person. Don't overthink it

Texting is a strange old game. Everyone is different when it comes to texting, you can't assume that because she is taking time to respond or the manner in how she responds that she likes/dislikes you. If you keep texting a girl boring things like school or work related topics then she is going to get bored and she will put it at the bottom of her to do list. I assume you're talking about other things, right? Let it flow for a while, see how things go.

Usually if you guys are in good conversation, they are probably looking at the text and figuring out how to respond, putting the phone down in between doing stuff. Aka their anxious?
Happened to me too, been texting this girl for months and she only replies maybe once a day or every other day, she works through most of the day so I understand that. But after meeting her I saw she did it to other people too, her mum or friends and she would say that she is a very slow texter ( her friend confirmed it) and likes to do the text at the end of the day.
or the more probable reason, she is a slow texter in genera. God I've had friend who doesn't reply for a day to a week and we just continue conversation. Also can depending on how long you been texting too, if you really are worried just be sincere a bout and ask.they would appreciate it than asking everyone else than her.

Mind you, some people just suck at texting. Face to face is always better
