How to deal with someone not texting you back

How to deal with someone not texting you back

There could be many reasons that someone doesn’t text you back. Here are a few things you can try to help deal with the situation:

  1. Maybe the person needs space: If all of a sudden a person stops texting you don’t bombard them with texts, instead try giving the person space.
  2. Try not to take it personally: Sometimes we make it all about us when we think someone is ignoring us. There could be a perfectly good reason that the person has responded, maybe they are sorting out personal issues or going through a busy period.
  3. Ask: If you’re concerned that you are being ghosted or ignored, get to the bottom of the situation and ask what is going on in a non confrontational way. It will save you hours of time ruminating on the sit-in.

If a person needs a break from us, it is important to respect boundaries and stop messaging for a while. If they still don’t respond, they might not be worthy of knowing you and you can move on to better relationships.
