Thoughts Every Girl Has When Waiting Out The Three Day Rule

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at VCU chapter.

Day 1

1.  Okay, so he didn’t text last night, whatever, he was probably tired, he’ll text today.

2.     Or not, he could just not text.

3.     I mean if we look at the universal truth that is Clueless, we know guys don’t text when they say they’ll text.

4.     “Christian said he’d call the next day, but in boy time that meant Thursday.” Whatta timeless, classic film.

5.     He said soon.

6.     Exactly what does “soon” mean?

7.     I’m fiiiinnneee.

8.     We hit it off, right? Yeah, we did.

9.     OK, let’s face it, he’s probably not texting today, which is so fine, I mean, he’s a guyyyy.

10.   I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m not the girl who stresses over whether a guy texts her.

11.   He’ll text, or he won’t, I don’t reallyyyy care.

Day 2

1.     New day, he’ll text; he proved his point, so he’ll text.

2.     What if he doesn’t?

3.     I don’t see why he wouldn’t.

4.     Omg, what if I put my number in his phone wrong?

5.     I totally put the wrong number in.

6.     No I didn’t, I checked.

7.     I hate myself so much right now.

8.     What if I was wrong? I’ve been wrong before.

9.     Omg he’s gonna think I fake numbered him.

10.    I’ll just have to go to the same party this weekend. I’ll see him again.

11.    Someone needs to take this phone away from me.

12.   But what if he texts?

Day 3

1.     Why for the love of all that is holy has he not texted yet?


3.     Shiitake mushrooms.

4.     I’m just gonna ask Google, you know, Google has all the answers.

5.     Oh almighty Google, why hasn’t he texted yet?

6.     What the fudge is the three day rule?

7.     This is not a thing.

8.     Omg it’s a thing.


10.   Well it’s the third day, he’ll text.

Day 4

1.     That’s it, I’m over it.

2.     He obviously was not as interested as he gave off.

3.     And you know what, I forget his name. It’s been replaced by a stream of obscenities.

4.     That’s a lie, I remember his name.

5.     If he texts, I’m not responding.

6.     Who am I fooling? He’s not gonna text.

7.     Why didn’t I get his number? I’m a strong confident woman. I would have texted.

8.     Ugh, why’d he have to be so cute?

9.     Whatever, I’m over it. FORGET YOU.




13.     Hehehe, I knew he liked me.

14.     I should wait to respond. I’m waiting.
