While texting has become the most common way to communicate in modern times, not everybody enjoys it. Some people find it impersonal or simply don’t like to keep up with all the messages they receive. If your guy is one these types, don’t worry. It doesn’t mean that he’s not interested in you, just that you’ll need to communicate in other ways.
Here are 5 helpful ways to cope with your boyfriend if he doesn’t like texting:
#1. Don’t freak out
When you first start dating a guy who doesn’t like to text, you may feel alarmed. Don’t be, it just means he wants to talk to you through other means. Try not to overreact for his long response times when it comes to texting. Just let him know it bothers you so you can find a solution together.
#2. No overthinking
Him not wanting to text too often is not a personal comment on how he feels about you. Try to detach from the idea that the amount of texting you do represents how close you are. Not at all. Don’t overthink it. If he says he doesn’t use text messaging that much, just leave it at that, it’s nothing more.

#3. In person
Obviously, if you’re guy isn’t into texting, you will need to find other ways of communicating. Focus on in-person interactions. This will make your guy feel like you listened to his feelings and compromised to make him more comfortable.
#4. Think positively
The avoidance of texting can actually add a very romantic element to your relationship. What did people do in the days before cell phones? Think back or imagine and try some different forms of connecting.
#5. Text sparingly
Just accept that your guy won’t be texting you too much, and adjust your behavior, as well. You can limit your texting to last minute planning needs or emergencies. You won’t waste time waiting for answers and your guy will be more communicative in other ways.
Texting doesn’t have to be the main form of communication between you and your guy. Get creative and you’ll notice your love blossoming.
