Throughout my time working at Gurl, I’ve gotten a lot of questions from you guys–you know, like, how to deal with having a vagina. Having periods. Having boobs. But mostly, these questions center around guys. Specifically, texting guys.
Sadly, I do not have a lot of wisdom to disperse in that area. In fact, if there is one piece of advice that I have to give on the subject of texting guys, it is this: Don’t do it. This isn’t, like, an etiquette-based thing (you know, like, you have to wait for a guy to text you before you can text him or something like that) so much as it is a sanity-based thing, because the best way to preserve one’s sanity is by not texting guys. (Because of stuff like this. And this. And this. Basically, just, like, don’t do it.)
Still, sometimes it has to be done. And then, all too often, guys prove once again that texting them is a poor way to maintain one’s grip on reality by just straight-up not responding. But it is hard to know what is about to happen, a lot of the time–sometimes, a guy will take three weeks to respond to something (rude) and sometimes, they just won’t respond at all (even more rude). What’s a girl to do? Well, to start, you can take this quiz to figure out which one it is.
To be clear, this is not a definitive quiz. I do not know the person you are texting, so I do not know the little quirks and oddities that govern them that mean that, despite the fact that all of their behavior is indicating that they will not text you, they may very well do just that. For all I know, they could be texting you right now! Still, it can be nice to get some sort of answer from an objective perspective. So, take this quiz to (maybe) find out if he’s going to text you back:
