If He Doesn’t Text Back, Ditch Him Like The Two Week Old Cheesecake In Your Fridge

Maybe he's not just a "bad texter."

If He Doesn’t Text Back, Ditch Him Like The Two Week Old Cheesecake In Your Fridge

Throughout my many hoe phases, I've had my share of bad texters. Some that reply with a short one- to two-word text and some that just don't reply at all. And though texting isn't really all that important when it comes down to it, it may just make or break a relationship.

And come on, we live in the digital age, is anyone actually bad at texting?

Stop making excuses for them.

It's so hard to stop making excuses like, "maybe they are just busy" or, "maybe they are just playing Madden with the boys." I know you want to keep holding onto hope that maybe they like you just as much as you like them, but if they wanted to talk to you, they would.

Trust me, I know how hard it is to actually believe that, but think about how you are with people you like and don't like. Nine times out of 10 you will leave the person you don't want to talk to on read, and you will actually have a conversation with the people you like.

So why do you think it's different for guys?

Here's my tip: Go no contact for three days.

Don't text first at all, and don't double text. If they text you first, then you can respond, and they obviously passed. However, if they don't try and contact you first within those three days, they failed, and I hate to say it, but they probably don't care and you should probably drop them as soon as you can.

Now, what's my favorite way to ditch a guy?

This may sound psychotic but bear with me. Text him first, and have a good last conversation and after the last text he sends immediately send an: "SMS: SERVICE ERROR 305: Message delivery failed. Further messages will be charged to your account" message, and BOOM you are done. And I mean completely done with them FOREVER.

Now, delete his number from your phone, and move on because he wasn't worth it anyway.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
