    YES im so glad i found this group.

    I absolutely HATE IT when one my friends ( or friends if it's a group chat ) doesn't text back. Idk it just makes me feel like im some type of pathetic loser or something. sorry if this sounds like im overexagerrating, but still it's not a very good feeling.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I hate that that **** with a passion.

    It's like i know you saw that ****, and I even saw the 3 typing bubbles and the Read receipt. Why on earth would someone switch on the read receipt, to show what dicks they can be? Hey, I read it buuuut, **** you. Yeah yeah, you were busy, so then "Later", remember that word...

    It's Rude.

    I understand that sometimes they are busy and it may take time to get back to me which is the beauty of texting but to not answer at all is just plain rude.If I don't get a reply back, especially if its about something important to me then I won't bother to continue the same...
