    Sorry to say this, but "texting" to most guys, is"girl stuff". Fact. I even read somewhere, that for every 5 texts a girl will send, a guy will only send 1. That's why girls get upset really fast, when they keep texting over and over and over again, and the guy won't reply. He'll sit back, wait for her to text a dozen times, and then send 1 text to take care of all 12 of her's.

    Like the first person said it depends on the guy, for example I always texts girls first and I feel like they never text first, it just depends on the people, but guys sometimes can be a little slow (trust me I know because I am sometimes ;) )

    Come on Keisha, are you new to this? Guys and girls communicate differently and for different reasons. You should pick up and read a copy of the book “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” by John Gray. Don’t loose any sleep over it, this is the way we are. If you feel the need to understand the way guys think, read the book. It will probably pay dividends throughout you life.

    Shy.

    That doesn't always happen though right - some guys text first.

    Depends on the guy.

    Because texting makes no sense.

    They just aren't that into you. Don't text them. Eventually, they will ask what is wrong and you can say, "well, I figured since you don't text me that maybe you aren't that into me." See? Works.

    Women are far more into communication than men are.

    if a guy doesn't text you it's because he's just not that into you.

    I don't know. I'm not really good at it. Fingers too big for the damn keyboard on these phones, as a result I usually phone back.SWEET MILDRED SENT ME HERE TO FIND DESPERATE WIVES FOR THE PLAYPEN
