We Went from Texting Everyday to Nothing – 18 Reasons & Tips 

I was coaching a client who was very upset. She told me about her guy, and said, “we went from texting everyday to nothing.” She was super confused. Did she do something wrong? Did the guy lose interest?

The truth is, this is pretty normal. Here you will learn the possible reasons why he stopped texting you and what to do when a guy stops texting you everyday.

Why We Went from Texting Everyday to Nothing

1. He Has Moved On

Your guy might have moved on to someone or something else. Maybe he got sick of the relationship. Maybe he is looking for something new and exciting. Maybe he found someone he likes more. Whatever the reason, he is no longer into you.

2. He Wasn’t That Interested

Guys text multiple girls every day and meet new girls all the time. He may not have been over the moon about you even though he texted every day. For whatever reason he has decided to discontinue his daily texts.

3. He Thinks He is Wasting His Time

A guy might stop texting if he thinks you are a dead end. Maybe he realizes you enjoy the validation of his texts, yet you are never going to meet up. He would rather spend his time on other things.

4. He’s Going Through Something

Texting every single day is a responsibility. Something personal may have come up that is taking up his time and energy. Texting you is just not his priority right now.

5. He’s Upset About Something

Perhaps you said or did something that has upset him. Instead of saying anything, he has decided to stop texting you. If you think this is the case you may want to confront him and ask him if something is on his mind.

6. He’s Testing You

Sometimes guys stop texting because they want to see how you react. It is a test to see if you really care. If you don’t say anything, it shows that he isn’t that important and you will easily move on without him.

7. He Doesn’t Know What to Say

When you text someone every single day eventually you may be at a loss for words. Plus, the excitement dies down. The easiest thing to do is to text less. Perhaps he is pulling back for now. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t like you.

8. He Got Scared Off

Texting every single day is a pretty big deal. He might not be looking for any sort of relationship and does not want to lead you on. Maybe you said something or hinted at something that has scared him off.

9. He’s Got Other Girls

Most of us text multiple people every day. Guys tend to prioritize the girls they are most interested in. Maybe he has gotten serious with another girl and does not want to screw it up. You are not as important as the other girl.

10. He’s Busy

He may have stopped texting every day because he is super busy. Whether it is work, school, hobbies, or other relationships, he probably has a lot going on. Texting you every day no longer fits into his schedule.

Don’t do anything. Give him some time, perhaps he has stuff going on. Give him a chance to come back to you. Distance makes the heart grow fonder. 

6. Let Him Go

7. Discuss It with Someone You Trust

You don’t want to do anything crazy that you will regret. Discuss the situation with a friend or family member you trust. Get their advice and consider what they say. Sometimes it is helpful to get an opinion from a 3rd party.
