I'm Not Somebody To Text When You're Bored

Every few months I get a random Snapchat from a guy I went to high school with. While it's nice of him to reach out, I'd rather him either have something to say to me or avoid Snapchatting me altogether. Why? Because I'm not somebody to text when you're bored.

I have a phone, I have Snapchat, and I have other social media apps that people can use to communicate with me. However, I don't have these apps so that I can spend my time entertaining random boys that text me. If I don't have an ongoing friendship with you, I don't want a random "hey" unless you have something meaningful or valuable to say to me or unless you have the maturity to have an actual conversation with me.

Again, I'm not here for your entertainment so don't text me when you're bored. Unlike some people, I'm a hard-working college student with big dreams to achieve and goals to accomplish. I don't have time to sit around entertaining every person that randomly Snapchats or texts me without anything important to say.

I'm a real person with a real life, and I'm not on this earth to entertain you. It's rude and selfish to expect a response from me when clearly all you're wanting is something to do. I'm not something to do. I'm a person, and if you want entertainment from me, it takes a whole lot more than a random Snapchat every four months.

If you would like to be able to text me "hey" and get a response, I would suggest taking the time to get to know me as a person instead of pursuing random casual conversations with me. Pick another girl to pester or learn how to have an actual conversation with somebody. Who knows, maybe you'll end up with real friends and a real relationship! Regardless, I'm not somebody to text when you're bored.

I understand that millions of people use things like Snapchat to entertain themselves. And some people love to have random meaningless conversations. That's all good and well, but I'm not interested. Don't send me "hey" and don't ask me "wyd". What I'll be doing is leaving you on read without a second thought.
