Why No Reply Romeo?

Waiting, waiting, waiting. You’re just waiting for him to text you back with the lingering thought in the back of your mind that he really isn’t anywhere near his phone anymore. Well, you’re probably right, he probably stopped texting you. Now you’re wondering, “Why?” As in, why would he just stop texting me in the middle of a conversation? Now you’ll see that us guys have used about every excuse in the book for “forgetting” to text back, but the real answer is, “We don’t care.”

It sounds a bit harsh, so let me try and explain this better for you ladies. Let’s start with a comparison of males and females. What are you thinking about right now? Well, you could write a Magic Tree House book with all of the stuff that women are thinking about at any time of the day, but with guys it’s really simple. Nothing.  Nothing’s ever really going through our heads.  Maybe once in a while when we are hungry, but other than that, nothing.

So if we can take what we learned about guy’s thoughts, we don’t care. Not like we don’t have any feelings for you lovely ladies, but what we are currently doing is much more important than any series of emoticons you are sending.

Sometimes you will get that reply though, and it may be a really meaningful message, or it could just be, “Yea.” It really all depends on the mood we are in. Us guys can be a tough breed to figure out. One second we couldn’t be happier, and then the next second we are mad as hell at something that most likely doesn’t make any sense.

You think you may know your man, but remember: he is a man.

Now, you want to know, of course, what you can do to get that reply. You can truly work as hard as you can but, you really aren’t going to be able to change normal animal instincts.

The one piece of advice I can give you ladies is to give us a reason to text back. We. Are. Bored. That’s usually the reason we are texting you in the first place. Just spice up those texts and give us some god-forsaken reason to text you back.
