    Give your crush a chance to respond to your first text. Just because someone doesnt respond immediately doesnt mean that they dont intend to reply. They might just be busy or distracted by other responsibilities at the moment. To avoid coming off as clingy, wait 2-3 days before you send another text. Itll give them time to respond and show that youre comfortable doing your own thing.[1]

    • It might be tough to wait this long, but try your best to be patient! Waiting to reach out will show this person that you dont need their validation and are comfortable on your own, 2 very attractive qualities.

    If youre stressed, waiting by the phone will only make things worse. Rereading the text you sent or constantly checking your phone can increase your anxiety about the whole situation. Try putting your phone down and investing in another activity for a few hours. Itll help you remember the other things youve got going on in your life, which can put things in perspective.[2]

    • Get some fresh air and go outside.
    • Go to the movies or read a book.
    • Hang out with your friends, but avoid spending the whole time analyzing your text conversation. Try your best to stay off the subject for a little while.
  • 3 3 of 11:Stay positive and don’t jump to conclusions.

    There are many reasons why someone might not immediately respond. You might be tempted to assume youve been ghosted, but try not to go there just yet. Your love interest might be busy with work or distracted by something else going on in their life. If you start worrying, remind yourself that there are tons of reasons why someone might not immediately get back to you and try to think positively.

    • Replace thoughts like “I was a fool to think she would respond” with something like “Shes busy right now, but Ill probably hear back later today.”
