You may stop texting someone on a dating site for several reasons, such as when you are busy or preoccupied. No matter the reason, delayed replies and texts make the situation awkward, especially when you don’t text a girl for days.
Did you forget to text her back due to your busy schedule? When did you reply to her last message? Has it been a week already?
In such cases, you may be wondering how to restart a conversation with her without being awkward. Don’t worry, as I’ve created this guide to help you and shared some tips and tricks you can use. So, keep reading to learn more.
What To Text A Girl You Haven’t Texted In A Week?
Here are a few examples of how to initiate a conversation with a girl whom you haven’t texted in a week:
Notice in the example above how the conversation started with a question? You can ask any question that piques her interest. For instance, you may ask what she is doing or what plans she has for the weekend.
- “Hello, stranger. I have been thinking about you a lot and wanted to say “hi.”
- “I challenge you to describe your day in only three emojis. Go!”
- “Would you like to take advantage of this beautiful weather with me this weekend?”
- “I found a restaurant with the theme that you like. Would you like to check it out?”
- “I bet you can’t guess what I’m doing at the moment.”
- “Was it you on the [street, certain bus, or place] I just saw? I can swear it was you.”
Your message should be interesting enough to grab her attention. If the messages are boring, the conversation can become dry and dull. The suggestions above can help you start a conversation in a fun and humorous way to avoid any awkwardness.
If you didn’t talk to a girl for a week after your first date, she might assume you are not interested in her and move on. However, you can ask her out for another date to get her attention and interest back.
How Long Should I Go Without Texting Her
If you have been dating for a few months, it’s understandable if you can’t text every few hours. However, you should always try to reply back within the same day. If you like her, you should aim to get back to her ASAP before she loses interest. This is especially important at the start of a relationship, so replying within an hour or two is ideal.
When you text her back after 2-3 days, the first thing you should do is to give a reason why you disappeared. It’s the polite thing to do. This may not be necessary if you have been dating for a while, and she knows that you have busy schedules. But keep in mind that the older the relationship, the more your communication patterns will be established. This means if you usually text back within a few hours, she will expect you to keep doing this.
If you think that she has lost interest or doesn’t wish to continue the relationship, you should end the conversation on a good note. Here’s an example of a guy and a girl ending the relationship gracefully rather than rude.
When A Girl Texts You After A Long Time
- “I was just thinking about you; how are you?”
- “So, when’s our next date, if I may ask?”
- “What’s the best thing that happened to you this week?”
Perhaps, you can be bold, courageous, and humorous at the same time:
- “I see that you couldn’t stay away from me. When can I see you again?”
- “Is it possible that we can finally go for that date we talked about many moons ago?
If the girl texts you back even when you don’t text her for a few days, there could be a variety of reasons why. The most obvious reason is the girl is still interested in you. If you kept the girl waiting and she still replied after a week, then you probably made a great impression and she wants to get to know you better. Women are attracted to men who value themselves.
She might ping you to make up for the poor conversation she had with you before you stopped texting. This is an example of a dry conversation where the girl left things on a poor note.
She Texted Me After I Stopped Texting Her
Does she text you even when you stop texting her for a week? In that case, it’s a clear sign that she likes you and wants to give your relationship a chance. If the feelings are mutual, you can show her your appreciation. Here are a few examples:
- “I missed your beautiful face.”
- “On a scale of one to ten, how free are you for a date this weekend? We can finally go to that place you always wanted to go.”
- “I was wondering what you were up to, but now that you are here, I am at a loss of words.”
However, if you think such messages will make you sound desperate, you can use your wit and humor, such as:
- “What was I up to this week? Well, I was going through the wardrobe to find the best suit to wear on our date this weekend.”
- “I hope you are fine because I am not. The lack of your sweet messages is slowly drowning me into the oceans of sorrow.”
Keep in mind that a girl may text you because she is feeling sad, lonely, or even bored. Maybe she wants to share her thoughts and feelings on a particular matter. Hence, this could be a sign that she likes you and trusts you. However, it’s always best to take a step back and ask yourself if you’re interested in continuing to talk with her. If you are interested and feel bad for the delayed reply, a simple apology can work, such as:
“I’m sorry for the late reply! Work has been crazy. How is your day going?”
What if I Stopped Texting Her and She Texted Me?
Girls like men who value and respect themselves and others. They know such men won’t act desperate, which makes you attractive. If she’s still texting you after you stopped messaging her, it’s a clear sign she is interested in you.
Here’s an example of how a girl keeps texting a guy but appears more obsessed than passionate:
One reason a girl texts even when the guy stops texting is because she’s attracted to his personality and attitude. This doesn’t mean that a guy should reply or text back instantly. In fact, the best approach is to take things slowly and go with the flow so you don’t look desperate. Hence, the girl will also feel comfortable in expressing her thoughts and feelings to you.
