I’m gonna answer this question and throw up a poll to see if you agree.
No. No, he isn’t interested. I know this and yet I still find myself scratching my head when a man proclaims interest, but has this idea that he can text you 24/7 without ever calling. I can’t lie. I might be inclined to accept this some of the time if that’s what schedules permitted, but these are the same men with dry conversation. You wanna text me to death *and* have nothing to say at the same time? No. Be witty and intelligent, at minimum.
Why do y’all think this is? I mean, I know some people aren’t good at conversation. I know some have social anxiety or lack of confidence in their ability to convey ideas. But tell me – can you really get to know someone solely by text? And why would you/they want to if you have technology that allows you to “talk?”
I know my annoyance is coming through. But it’s the labor. The labor that I refuse to do – teach conversational skills, carry the weight of conversations by myself, guess what people are thinking, etc. No. If they can’t use their words – no. I’m also not signing up for boredom.
