Should I Wait for My Boyfriend to Text or Call Me?


If you have doubts on whether you should wait for your boyfriend to call or text you or if you should contact him first, you came to the right place. We will outline some of the reasons why your boyfriend is not contacting you and what you should do.

It was less than a day since last time he texted or called

In this case, there is no need to worry much. It is likely that he is busy or just doesn’t realize that it was a while since you both talked. Some guys believe that it is important to give space to each other in the relationship for it to be successful. If it was less than half a year since you started dating it is possible that the guy just doesn’t want to annoy you by texting and calling you all the time. If you prefer to talk and text with your boyfriend more often, you can hint him that you like when he texts you in the morning, before going to sleep and etc. Otherwise, you can just text him more yourself. If you are in a relationship with someone you love, there is nothing to be ashamed by texting or calling first.

You texted your boyfriend first but he takes forever to get back to you

If it was more than half an hour since you texted him and this happens consistently, then your concern is justified. If however, you texted him while he is working, driving or in school it is possible he just cannot get back to you on time. In all other cases, you should talk to your boyfriend and see what the reason for consistent delays is. Obviously, you don’t want to come across as a controlling girlfriend so the best way to do it is to make it look like you are just concerned about his wellbeing. “Honey, why you didn’t reply to me when I texted you two hours ago? I thought you got into the accident or something, don’t do this to me anymore”.

He constantly replies late to your messages even when he is not busy and alone at home

In this case, he either doesn’t want to come across or desperate or he just simply doesn’t truly like you and thinks that is not a big deal if you wait. In this cases again you should carefully take a look at your relationship and see if there is a lack of attraction between you and your boyfriend.

There are many other small reasons why your boyfriend doesn’t reply to you on time. If this happens just a few times don’t be concerned much. If it happens consistently, talk to him before blaming him for anything. This will prevent any unnecessary conflicts between you and your boyfriend and will keep your relationship healthy and open.
