Texting someone that you like on a consistent basis is always such a wonderful feeling. Especially when the conversation is great, the replies come fast and neither of you have a blip in your flow with each other. But even with all of those cool things happening, there can sometimes be something that might still be bothering the crap out of you. Like, if the two of you are doing so well with your texting, why has he not made the move to make plans with you to hang out? What is stopping him from taking the next step? Doesn’t he want to get to know you more in person? These are all definitely valid questions to have in this situation. We can understand where your concern might arise from. But don’t panic. It does not always mean that he does not like you. There could be many other things behind it that are prompting him to say no to a hang out session with you. What are they? Well, we will walk you through them shortly here! Just take a look below to get started.
He Has Been Busy
Let’s face it- We all get busy. Some weeks are definitely busier than others. And some months just seem never endingly packed with stuff to do. Even if we don’t really want to be doing it and would be rather doing something else… Like hanging out with the person that we have been texting lately! You might have to come to understand that this guy that you have been texting on the regular is just a busy man, with a very busy life. He might have a lot of other things going on. So, it might not actually have anything to do with you, it might just be that he lives a very full life on a day to day basis. How can you figure out if this is the reason that he hasn’t made plans to hang out? Girl, just ask him! Ask him how he spends his weeks. It might be the answer you are looking for.
He Wants To See Where It’s Going
Yes, you two seem to have hit it off right off the bat… Or so it seems to you! He might still be a little skeptical about how things are going between the two of you. It could be that he just simply is not ready to hang out with you too much in person. He might want to continue talking for a little while longer, because he wants to see if you two are truly a match or not. Texting first for a long period of time gives you both a chance to get to know one another. He is probably weary at this point and would like a little bit longer before diving into a more physical relationship of any sort. This happens more often than we think. And no, it does not mean that there is anything wrong with you. He just wants to make sure you are right for him first!
He Has A Girlfriend Already
This is definitely our least favorite on the list, because it would mean that he is one shady man. However, it does happen. And you should be prepared for the possibility. Although you should not jump to any conclusions! Instead remember that this is only a small possibility. You might want to think about his behavior. Does he seem to disappear for long periods of time without explanation? Does he refuse to add you on social media platforms? These are signs that he might already be seeing someone. And since he, most likely, does not want you and her to collide, he is going to have you on different schedules. So there is going to be times where he is nowhere to be found.
He Is Too Shy
Or your poor, cute, crush might actually just be a shy guy. This means that he just hasn’t yet mustered up the courage to come out with you just yet. He might feel overwhelmed or even intimidated by the idea! Thinking about meeting you could even go as far as to give him anxiety. So it might take him some time to warm up to the idea. He certainly enjoys talking with you if he talks to you every day and keeps the conversation up well. But he does not yet know how to act on those feelings. He will eventually! You just need to have patience with him. Or you can make the first move and try to plan something with him! Take the risk and see what he says!
He’s Just Bored
Lastly, we want to mention this reason because, even though it’s an awful one, it definitely is one to be aware of. Guys (and girls) sometimes only text people consistently because they are simply bored. This means that they never truly had any intention of hanging out with you in the first place. This is most likely the reason if you are always trying to get him to hang out, but he always rejects the idea.
