Not every man is the same. While some don’t deserve to have any of your time, others deserve to have your full attention.
And because not every man is the same, it can be hard to know whether or not he’s serious about you. Is he really interested in you or does he just want a casual fling?
Either way, your goal is not to have your heart broken by a man who doesn’t know what he wants.
I understand that it’s difficult to know a man’s intentions by talking to him via social media apps but that’s completely fine. You shouldn’t rush into anything you don’t want to, as you may end up being hurt by him.
Also, it may be that you’re already in a relationship that has hit a few bumps and you don’t know whether to walk away or stay and try to fix things.
Either way, if you’re really struggling to resist your desire to text him back, then I hope this article may change your opinion about that.
1. He never replies to your messages
If you’re the one who does all the work and replies to his every message no matter how busy you are, while he would never do something like that, then he clearly doesn’t deserve you at all.
You shouldn’t just sit there and stare at an empty screen while he’s figuring out whether or not he’ll reply to you. Don’t text him back if you feel like he doesn’t know his priorities.
It’s understandable if he’s working and doesn’t have the time to text back but if you know that he’s home and he’s doing nothing and still doesn’t reply to you, then don’t bother wasting your time on a guy like that.
After all, why would you make the effort for a guy who’s clearly only interested in a one-night stand and nothing else? You deserve much more than that, as you’ve had your fair share of bad boys.
He’s definitely not boyfriend material and he never will be!
2. His actions speak louder than his words
Is he one of those guys who told you that he’d call or text you as soon as he was done with something but he never did?
Or perhaps he told you that he’d be there whenever and wherever you needed him but he can’t even reply to your message?
If he’s that kind of a man, then quickly back off and don’t put in any effort into changing him because he never will.
Or it could be that you’re already in a relationship with a man like this and he’s telling you how much he loves you but never makes you feel appreciated or loved. So, what does that say about him?
Well, that’s just a hint that he’ll never do what he says he will and you can’t expect him to have your back – ever! His words are meaningless if he can’t back them up with his actions.
So, don’t believe him when he says that he cares about you. Don’t believe when he sends you, “I love you,” because it’s only a half-truth and nothing else.
3. You’ve been already hurt by him
Another reason why you shouldn’t text him is if he hurt you before and didn’t have the decency to say that he was sorry.
You know that he could’ve picked up the phone at any time and called you to give you an explanation for his behavior but he never did.
And why is that? Because he doesn’t care for you or for your well-being.
And truth be told, one simple text message won’t change anything. It’s just proof that he won’t put any effort into making it right.
I understand that it may be hard for you to not contact him but if you do, then you’ll regret it later, trust me. You’ll feel sorry for yourself and you’ll keep wondering why you didn’t have the strength to resist the desire to text him.
But please, for the love of God, don’t do it – don’t text him. Prove to him that you respect yourself more than you respect him.
That’s the only way that you can make him leave you so that he stops bothering you completely.
4. He texts you only when he’s bored
Ask yourself this: Do you really want to be his second choice, the one he calls when he doesn’t have anything better to do?
Probably not, so you need to stop texting him back. He’s reaching out because he has an ulterior motive, because he wants something from you.
If your phone rings in the middle of the night and it’s him, then you can be sure that he wants you to be his bed warmer and that’s it.
You shouldn’t accept that, even if it’s just for fun. You’re not an easy girl and he needs to know that he can’t have you whenever he wants.
5. You deserve so much better
If you know him by now and you know that he’s the kind of guy who’ll leave you heartbroken, then you should definitely not text him back.
You don’t deserve someone who’ll make you feel as if you’re unworthy of love and who’ll force you to doubt whether you’re enough.
Don’t let an immature boy who doesn’t know what he wants from his life play mind games with you. If he’s unable to see your worth, then someone else definitely will.
And why should you waste your time or energy on a man who likes you only for your looks? You’re much more than that.
You have so many great things to offer and you’re as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside.
6. Your gut tells you that he’s not the one for you
We all know that women have this sixth sense that helps them figure out whether or not someone is being sincere.
So, if your inner voice is telling you that you shouldn’t waste your energy or time on him, then you should probably believe it.
Otherwise, sooner or later, he will lead you on and leave you heartbroken.
Whenever you’re around him or when he tells you something over text, you can feel that he’s lying to you. So, if your gut is telling you that he’s not the one for you, then don’t text him back.
Don’t settle for less just because you’re afraid to die alone. The right one will come along, you just have to be patient.
