    Makes Me Wonder If I Have Done Something Wrong...

    I really hate when I am texting someone, and than they stop texting me back it makes me wonder, oh ****, did I say something wrong, or if they are okay, or something along those lines. I just get nervous sometimes that I have done something wrong.

    Has to be one of my biggest pet peeves.

    I try to be understanding. You know, "maybe they work from home." Or "maybe they dropped their phone and damaged the battery." Or "maybe they're pooping and don't want to touch their phone". But with the lovely iPhone, the game changes. How. With one little sentence that pops...

    I don't understand why it is

    so hard for people to get back to me when I try to reach them via text message. I feel like whenever I don't hear from someone it's not only impolite to not respond back,but also gives me the idea that they don't want to talk to me. It truly irritates me when I try so hard to...

    This is the worst. Especially

    when you've just said something important and you need an answer. Or if you just msgd someone you like. It's torture.

    I Do....

    I hate when someone I text doesn't answer me back. I hate the feeling of being ignored, and feeling like I have no one to talk to. I feel like there is no point in me having a phone anymore because no one bothers to text me back, and I hate that. I just wish I had more texting...

    Coincidental that I found this category.

    My 'friend' ignores me all the time. She only replies: "OK" "It get it" "K" I find it a little rude how she doesn't respond that much and seems uninterested in me. Thinking I was a blabbermouth; I stopped texting her since.. last year in fact! Her number is still on my phone...

    It Feels Like They Just Don't Want To Talk..

    I know that sometimes people may not have the credit to talk back or they're busy or sleeping or something else... but I still just find it sad when people don't answer back to my texts. Especially when I'm really depressed and all I want is someone to talk to... I don't even...

    Might Be My Biggest Pet Peeve

    This could be the number one thing that drives me crazy. When I'm texting someone and they don't answer back I always assume that they don't like me anymore or aren't speaking to me - which is crazy b/c a lot of the time it's not even true. But the worst is when you're texting...
