There’s really no solidly good excuse for not texting someone back. Everyone has their phone on them all the time. I don’t care who you are or what you’re doing. We all know that these days people carry a phone on them 24/7, even when exercising. So it’s obvious that you’re intentionally ignoring someone when you don’t text them back. And there’s *especially* no reason at all to not text back your significant other immediately. If you care about that person, you drop what you’re doing and answer them right away. If you don’t, then all you’re really doing is letting them know that they’re not a priority. Nothing says “I don’t care” like not getting a text back.
