Im dating a guy 20 years older
Any woman I’ve ever really cared for (and showed priority towards) didn’t settle for behavior that wasn’t what she wanted.
She didn’t put up with behavior that didn’t work for her – namely, if I left her hanging, I could be sure she’d make other plans. Nobody wants to put up with a person who’s argumentative, unpleasant or adversarial for no reason.

One of the most frequent things I notice is that the women fixate on the guy acting a certain way or doing something they want him to do (in this case, texting her back).
At this point, rather than calling him out when he doesn’t respond, you would be far more effective if you make other plans when this happens.
DON’T wait on him because people tend to fall into a routine with other people based on past behavior.
I think all guys would generally agree: we tend to be single-minded in what we’re doing and focus on meeting one objective at a time. 5) If I’m with another girl (note: If I’m in a relationship it’s monogamous, I never cheat, but if not dating around is fair game.) If you want to know why specifically he’s not texting you back (and what to do about it), click here to take our “Why Doesn’t He Text Back? In your situation, it sounds like this guy will try to make plans and then when it gets complicated, or it seems like it isn’t going to happen, he directs his attention elsewhere and doesn’t feel the need to text further (again it comes down to the concept of a man’s tendency to single-mindedly fixate on fulfilling an objective or reaching a goal).
Anything outside of our focus at that moment is a distraction that we don’t want to “deal with”. Now you mentioned that you’ve expressed your frustration over his behavior and he hasn’t changed. ’) you might think you’re drawing a line in the sand, but he sees it as something else entirely: NEEDINESS.
Rather, I’m recommending that you change how you think about things and, therefore, the needy behaviors and ways of acting naturally disappear. It’s believing that you “need” the other person to act a certain way, be a certain way, do specific things or say specific things… There’s nothing wrong with having preference for what you want and only settling for what you want. The problem with the needy mindset is that when you’re not getting what you want, you have a strong negative reaction because you think of his specific behavior as something you “need” in order to be OK… So bear in mind that this response to you is from the context that you’ve repeatedly brought this up as an issue and there’s been no change in his behavior.And we’ve all seen that idiot who picks his plate up and actually starts to lick it. Unless you actually want her to perv over your fitter mates. Don’t worry about having female friends/talking about your ex. Don’t be surprised if her gay best friend comes on to you. As a rule she’s confident enough not to give a damn. You’re definitely not alone – as you can see, tons of women have experienced the “guy doesn’t text back” phenomenon.Not only will you see a pattern, but you’ll also see tons of comments where Sabrina and I personally responded.
This is an example of not accepting behavior that you don’t want conflict.
