    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...

    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...

    It just drives me crazy

    when someone I text just doesn't text me back. For me, it's just common courtesy. The other day I sent a photo of a beautiful landscape to a friend, and she never said anything which was awkward cause she had actually asked for it. There's also someone very close to me with whom...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
