I turned 22 two days ago and he’s almost 32. @blisseyxo_
We actually kind of touched on this topic before! I mean it was more in the sense of assuring the other person we’re fine with not replying to each other immediately and that we’d much rather send longer texts every 3-4 days than message constantly.
If I know that I’m not gonna respond to someone within a week (for whatever reason), I always shoot a quick text along the lines of “hey, just wanted to let you know I’m not ghosting/ignoring you, I just have a lot to do right now and will get back to you asap.” Letting the other person know that I’m busy and unable to reply is basic decency for me. I will definitely bring up communication as a topic but I also feel like wanting regular communication is asking for the bare minimum? @aurielle
I 100% agree with @Yi_eune that everyone has the time to send a quick message like the one above, especially if a full week has passed already.
I personally don’t find texting someone I’m dating casually once every week or two to be plenty. Again, I don’t require constant communication but I’d like the person I’m dating (even if it’s just casual) to get back to me in a reasonable timeframe. @Grazydol8
