He Texts Me Everyday but Doesn't Call

Discover if it is worth it to be patient with him

he texts me everyday but doesn`t call

Would it be nice if he called or texted you after a date or after you've met and set up a second date?

Instead, he texts. And texts. But he doesn't call.

Since then, he might even do it multiple times a day.

He obviously likes you.

If not, he wouldn't text you so much.

That's a bit confusing, isn't it?

What's with all the texts and no calls after the first date

You are seeking a more real connection than your white smartphone screen.

Let's first understand what might be really going on.

He might be afraid of rejection

You may not be clear enough about your interest and attraction to him.

He might be the kind of guy who needs more safety signs before he goes in for the kill.

You may wish to offer him a few compliments on what he said or did, if this might be the case

You should be sincere. Don't say anything you don't mean. He will smell it.

It could backfire.

It will sound phony and might lose his interest.

You want to compliment without seeming needy or phony.

As an example, you might say:

"I admire how hard you work. That is a great quality in a man""

"Exactly what I'm looking for in a man; a man who can cook!"

"I must say that you are a real multi-tasker! I doubt many men can manage this!"

"Your promises are always kept; we always know we can count on you to do what you say. I like that"

Compliment him on skills that you have noticed and appreciate.

Have you noticed the words used: ''I like that'', ''wow'', ''I admire'', ''I love it when you...''

No drug or dessert can boost a man's ego like appreciation for what he does and who he is.

If he doesn't make a move to call you or invite you after that, I suggest you move on to the next guy.


He has a weak self-esteem

Some sad facts about men;

Men like to collect phone numbers.

Due to society's standards and expectations, it gives them a false sense of value.

Two, four, or five women can be texted at one time.

They can build a group of women to text regularly, in order to boost their egos and feel less lonely.

Make sure you don't stay too long in "the club".

The amount of texting some men do each day is so high they would surely beat my mother, who typed for a living.

Random texts from him like ''Leaving work now'', ''hearing the car'', or ''going for lunch'' are NOT a sign that he is thinking of you.

He might be just looking for attention.

That does not mean he wants to share his everyday life with you.

He might even suggest getting together.

But never sets a time AND a place.


Bad sign.

Not good.

It is probable that this man does not see you in his future if he behaves in this manner consistently.

Because you feed his ego, he keeps flirting and texting because it makes him feel good. At your expense.

His needs are met by you until he meets someone else.

Continuing with this behavior is not entirely his fault; you are feeding his ego by enabling him to do so. So slow down.....let it come to you. Learn on how to get a guy to chase you.

If you accept that he only texts you, never calls you, never asks you out clearly on a date, you are encouraging with all the blessings in this world his behavior.

He should be able to invite you out within 10 days.

If he doesn't, here is what you can do;

+ You can stop answering his texts and move on. You are searching for real deep love afterall!

+ You can ask him out

+ You can call him out on his behavior skillfully

Calling men; the complete guide

A) Ask him out.

You can randomly send him a text "are you up for a cup of coffees sometimes?"

He may replies with a strong "No". A strong "No" means he declines the offer without any attempt to reschedule.

In this case, you better stop texting him.

B) Make your point.  Express your dislike.  Draw a line.

If you don't express that you have an issue with all the texting, then he simply won’t stop. It makes him feel good. Why stop a good thing he is thinking?

He texts because it is allowed. By you.

If a woman accepts less, then most men will give less

I don’t encourage to be rude or nasty.

Just stop de waste of time and energy.

Here are some phrases you may use:

"I noticed something about you - You looooove texting" – taken from Matthew Hussey's video tip

Exagerate what you do or want to do in a ridiculous non probable way as:

"Glad to hear you’re having a great day, Seth. I would like to hear your voice. 🙂 Shout me a call tonight after I get back from the gym, is it alright?”

Raise up the level of connection - Don't be a bore

According to pick up artist Mehow, (yes you read right – Mehow), when a guy texts you, you should reply in a way to get his energy up and prep for a connection with you. 

Use of humour, imagination etc… in a fun and classy way BEFORE you ask for what you desire.

He isn’t serious enough about being with you.

No need to get mad at the guy.

Don’t be afraid that you’re losing your potential boyfriend. Read on reasons why boyfriends are breaking up with their girlfriends .

You’re not. You’re freeing yourself of the burden of waiting for an indifferent man to show you he cares.

If he cared about you, he’d WANT to call you, WANT to see you, WANT to commit to you.

A man isn’t going to give a woman a more time-consuming action such as talking if he does not see the value in it

Men are competitive by nature

For all he knows you have a line of guys waiting for their shot with you. If he’s into you, he won’t risk some other guy snatching you up while he was “too busy” working on a project.

When we dig someone, we can’t get enough. We want to know every story, every detail.

If a guy doesn’t tell you anything about himself, it also means he’s not really feeling it.

If a guy is into you, he will open up and will peel back that outer layer

If a guy is into you,

+ He’ll make it known clearly that he wants another date.

+ He might mention other date ideas he has for the two of you but he’ll stay in touch,

+ He'll say hi or send you a Facebook funny video because when you think about someone, you think about them all the time, and when you think about them, you want to connect with them.

+ He can be busy as well under devil's pressure, he will still reach out to you

He will ask you out. He will call you. He will pursue you.

He will want to see you. He will find a spot into his schedule.  

You will feel safe.

End the nonsense. Detach. Free yourself

Another bad sign is if he doesn’t call when he says he will.

If a guy says he’ll call you at a certain time and then doesn’t keep his promises, it means you are not important to him.

Let him go.

Doesn't matter how much you have a crush him.

Let him go.

Here is a way to "text" him on it.

You seem like a good guy, Steve, but I’m wondering now if we are looking for the same thing. I’m looking for a boyfriend. And since all you’ve done is text me and or not keeping your promises, I’m going to take that as a sign that you’re not that interested in a relationship. No worries. No hard feelings. I wish you the luck in what you are looking for. Take care.”

The texter has already shown his stained colors. All you’re doing is calling him out.

You've lost nothing.

Because there was nothing.

You cannot get real love with fake potential.

Let me repeat this:

You cannot get real love with fake potention

And ending up being again THE single person at your friends's weddings.
