when you text your husband or so, do they text you back?

i text my husband occasionally, to say i love you, and to remind him when he needs to pick up something on the way home. and he never reply's back to me. i know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but i've looked through his phone(i'm terrible , i know) and noticed that he texts a lot of his friends regularly, a girl from work in particular, and they text each other a lot. i know they are just friends, i've met her, and they mostly talk about ufc fighting and stuff, but i just don't understand why he can text her all the time but he can't ever reply to my messages.

  • I know how you feel. I hate it when my babys dad does that especailly since I know he gets them and he texts his friends ALL the time. Makes me feel un important. I saw this cute quote it says
    " When I text you it means I miss you.... When I don't it means I'm waiting for you to miss me.."

  • My DH has to be really mad at me or feeling really disconnected from me to not text or call me. Even then, he will, but not put "love you" at the end.


    Seems kinda fishy if he's texting all his friends and the girl a lot, but not you. Perhaps he's not feeling connected to you or he feels that you are nagging him or are clingy.


    I know I'd be pretty pissed if my DH did that and didn't have a legit reason to not send a quick text back to me. It's disrespectful. It's the same thing as if you were having a face to face conversation and he just ignored you the whole time, but would talk to his friends and the girl. Not cool on his part.

  • always, unless we are arguing && he is VERY

    If he is at work it might take him a few minutes if he is really busy, but I know he will as soon as he gets a chance.

    That's the main way we communicate when we're apart, because neither one of us can stand talking on the phone.

  • yupp, mine will always text back even if its me being mean he'll text something real stupid that will just make me laugh.

    but i do agree its kinda weird that he cant even say "ok" or even "ily" but can text other people. i think you should sit down and talk to him and tell him how its making you feel.

    just a suggestion.

  • Yes, Mine always texting me back even if he's mad at me. We don't play games with eachother. If we have something on our mind we comfort eachother about it. Just ask him nicely how come he never responds to your texts etc? get the line of communtication open about not communicating through the day. good luck to you!
