    If you reply back hours later,

    don't expect me to stay as excited and interested as I was before, and don't blame me for that, because I really, really hate it.

    Slow replies are annoying

    but if you read my message and don't bother to reply then that's another story. I normally wouldn't care if it's someone that I don't talk to often but if it's someone that I talk to almost daily then it's difficult for me not to care. I just tell myself that the next time they...

    The thing is I am entitled to use my time how I

    see fit. If i'm using it to talk to you the least you can do is appreciate that and reply to me with some kind of quickness. I don't like waiting for you to reply and only get "Oh" Or "Yea" Or "haha" Or just an emoticon. If you don't know how to reply to what I say then say...

    I have to consider to chat with you again. And don't chat with me if you can't reply as fast as I do.Sorry I can't stand slow replies.

    Or no reply at all. One leaks what the heart

    wants to reveal The other stays silent. They claim it is golden. Take your gold and store it up. Life is precious and is far more greater then golden silence. In your world you will be.

    I hate slow replies and

    that seems like all I've been getting for most of the people I talk to, I usually reply very fast because I know what's it like to get slow replies, the only times I won't reply fast is if I'm doing something or I don't see/hear the message, I just really don't like slow replies...
