Give her space. She may be busy with too many important things and unable to answer your texts. Most girls don't like it when guys keep pursuing them, even though society allows it. And also, if she starts texting you, don't feel intimidated. She might think you're close-minded and not seeing her as equal. Be able to respond to her if you want a relationship with her.

chigirl agony auntDon't text her, only reply to her texts. Then you will be hard-to-get, but be aware you might also appear snobby. Ask her how she is, but never ask for details. If the girl wants to tell you she will on her own, without anyone doing an intervention on her. Like, don't ask her where she is, with whom, doing what. Just ask whats up, or how she is, and settle with whatever answer she gives you.

dirtball agony auntJust because you can do something doesn't mean you should. *cough* unlimited texting *cough* If you're being too clingy, that means you are annoying her with how much you're contacting/hanging around her. Try to back off a little bit. No need to text eachother all the time. Don't ignore her texts, but if you don't respond the second one comes, oh well.

You can't go from clingy to hard-to-get. Just back off a little. If you make that drastic a change, she'll wonder what's up. If she comments about your decreased texting and stuff, just respond that you are trying to give her the space she requested and not be clingy. You may find she misses it after it's gone.

olderthandirt agony auntun cling yurself..don't text anymore. maybe she's tired of being thumbalena on the text thing. I am so glad we didn't have texting when i was young. We did have phones though and I wasted enough time on that thing to have let me get better grades and make somrting of myself.
