When waiting for someone to text back, how long should you wait for a follow-up text, a week or two weeks?

By the way, do you sometimes get stuck in online conversations? Very frustrating… but there is a simple solution. I created a bonus named The 10 Texts That Always Work, including my favorite text to send when I have gotten her number, an easy message to get her out on a date, and some witty lines to get the conversation going. Download it, its completely free and easy to use.

Wait 4 hours before texting again if they don’t respond. You may need to send a second message to remind the other person. Studies have shown that after 4 hours, you’re more likely to get a response if you text again. That gives you enough time to restart the conversation and makes you sound less clingy.

How long should I wait in between text messages?

#1: What should you do if she doesn’t text back?

This tip teaches you the real reason why she’s ignoring you. And how to keep it from happening.

You grab your phone and see a notification from your crush.

Before rolling out of bed, you send her a reply.

You then drain the sea monster, finish the rest of your morning routine and start your day.

You were so busy, this is your first time checking your phone.

But for now, it doesn’t matter if you did something wrong.

The #1 thing that’s going to sabotage your Tinder conversation is not your earlier text.

It’s your burning desire to get a reply.

Because if you crave her response, you’re very likely to make one of three texting mistakes.

Mistakes that may blow your chances of seeing her:

Loverboy didn’t get a reply, so he took back his compliment.

Downer Dave is hoping to get a pity date.

3.   You’re going to be an excited puppy when she does text back

Looking only at the grey text bubbles, you’d think Thomas is a girl.

Can you see how desiring her reply leads to super cringy texts?

These responses keep women so far away, that you have to slide your Tinder distance settings to 100 km/mi.

But at TextGod we give you the advice that you need to hear, not the advice you want to hear.

So here’s the answer:

Call a friend, get your sweat on, rewatch The Wire.

Stuck at school or work? Put in your earplugs and put on 8 hours of whale sounds.

The reason I’m inviting you to distract yourself, is to keep you from cockblocking yourself.

Because if you shoot her a text from a position of neediness, you’re going to screw nobody but yourself.

So wait for your neediness to die off and continue to phase two.

You see, this is only the first step of a long process.

#2: How long should you wait before you text back?

Finish this tip and you’ll never worry about how long you need to wait until you shoot her a text.

The pain of being ignored becomes unbearable and you NEED to send know more.

But if you want to avoid killing all your hard-earned attraction, you better hold out.

Did you meet her in person, did you match on Tinder or is she your girlfriend?

But before we crack into the first scenario, know that every waiting period is a rule of thumb.

Let’s get into the waiting period for a woman who you met in person.

If a girl you just met is keeping you hanging, you want to wait 24 to 72 hours.

Because how long you want to wait depends on the level of trust.

Are you still a total stranger who may be a stalker?

Or did you already share so many personal stories with her, that you’re friends?

If she’s still deciding if you’re a creep, give her plenty of space.

Creeps are too crazy and selfish to have any empathy. All that’s on a creep’s mind is, “How much longer before I can sleep with her???”.

Giving a needy nut job her number is a girl’s worst nightmare.

Which is why I want you to lay back and show her you don’t need her to reply.

In short, see waiting as part of earning her trust.

Similar to the girl from real life, wait about 24 to 72 hours.

Some dating gurus say to wait less, because a Tinder match is less personal than having her phone number.

Your match doesn’t know you except from your Tinder photos and bio.

So you want to build trust by not blowing up her inbox.

More importantly, by putting lots of time between texts you’re being chill.

You’re communicating that you have more important things to do and that you don’t take Tinder that seriously

Girls love meeting cool people via Tinder, but only if it doesn’t get in the way of real life commitments.

By showing your personal life is your top priority, you seem ‘normal’ to her and become more attractive.

You don’t want to wait as long with random girls, but you do want to be extra careful.

Because if you mess up, you may lose the woman you love.

So before you do anything, make sure she really is quiet for longer than normal.

Just because she isn’t texting as quickly as you’d like doesn’t mean she’s giving you the silent treatment.

So figure out what her usual pattern of replying is.

Does it normally take her minutes, hours or days to respond?

Once you know she’s been quiet for too long, ring her up.

But only if you’ve freed your mind of the next thoughts:

  • She’s playing games with me
  • What have I done to deserve this?
  • I’m going to make her pay for ignoring me!
  • Don’t go on a crusade against the woman you love and trust.

    When you call her, you’re going to keep the conversation free of emotion and be straight to the point.

    If my girlfriend didn’t text me back, I’d phone her up and say something along the lines of:

    “Hey, everything OK? You usually never go without texting for so long. Just wanted to make sure you’re alright.

    And whatever you do, you’re not going to attack her for not replying. And you’re not going to be butt hurt.
