Yes, every one—even if you simply say, “Thanks, but no thanks.” Acknowledging someone’s interest and effort by letting them know you received their message is common courtesy.
Sometimes, though, you email someone, but don’t receive a reply.
“When I send a text message to a guy and I don’t get a response until 5 plus hours later does that kinda mean rejection or disinterest on his part? 1) Girls that we want to date and have a relationship with.
I’ve been thinking that he’s expressing disinterest… Just like girls do when the receive a message from a man they have little to no interest in. If you do not get a reply, then clearly you then know the other person is not interested in going on another date.
I can’t begin to express how frustrating it is to not only be called “cutie” (I am a GROWN WOMAN) by a total stranger but to throw in a “we should chat sometime HMU”. I’m pretty sure this has been sent to about 100 other users in hopes they will “hit you up”.
If a man is very interested in you, he will be looking out for your text messages or emails or phone calls.
He will consciously have his phone on him more than he normally does in anticipation of you contacting him.
3) Girls that are just seen as just potential friends. Not all men are like this, but enough to be worth mentioning. Let’s cut to the chase, I know what you’re really getting at with your question: If he was genuinely interested in you, he would reply back right away (under an hour) since he would be so excited about talking to you because (ideally) he really likes you.
It is just like the way a girl behaves when a guy that she is interested in contacts her.
