What Does it Mean When a Guy Stops Texting You Everyday?

Whether he has simply moved on to another relationship, he wants to see how you’ll react when he stops reaching out, or he’s busy strapping nukes to giant asteroids hurtling through space towards Earth at thousands of miles per hour, there are endless meanings for when guys stop texting you every day.

1. He Has Moved On

Whether he’s sending another girl a text message every day now, or he’s simply recovering from your relationship with him, is anyone’s guess.

2. He Was Playing You

Sometimes a guy might stop texting suddenly because he’s busy pursuing other relationships.

If he’s been texting you a lot, and stops, but is active on social media, the chances are even higher that he was/is playing you.

3. He Thinks He’s Wasting His Feelings

When a guy feels that a real relationship with you is out of the question, they may suddenly drop all conversation with you in an attempt to save themselves a broken heart.

4. He’s Going Through Personal Issues

When you’ve been talking with a guy who seems genuinely interested in you, on a regular basis, through text messages, and he suddenly stops texting, there are high chances that he’s going through personal issues.

The good thing is that if you wait long enough, one day he’ll start texting again like nothing ever happened.

5. He’s Testing You

There are so many possible reasons for a guy to break off communication with you seemingly out of the blue. However, there is also some meaning behind it.

More often than you might imagine, guys stop texting because they want to see how you react.

6. He’s Confused

Texting a guy every day can be fun and exciting, and it can also be frustrating… especially when he’s confused about how he feels about you.

Sometimes, when guys are confused about things with you, they’ll stop texting until they think they’ve come up with the answer.

7. He Doesn’t Know What to Say

Sometimes guys are dumb like that, thinking they always need something shiny and exciting to discuss with you (and keep you intellectually engaged).

So, if they’ve decided to stop texting, maybe they just don’t know what to say to you anymore.

8. He’s Afraid of His Emotions

Men are not always as brave and fearless as they’d like females to believe. In fact, when it comes to feelings, and coming up with any sort of explanation about them, they may be downright terrified.

That said if he IS afraid of his emotions, and the effort it takes for dealing seems like too much it’s no surprise that he stopped texting you every day.

9. You Scared Him Off

Some men are not relationship material, and the closer they get to one the more they want to run away.

If he isn’t comfortable with a relationship, it may be enough to freak him out and cause him to stop texting.

10. He’s Seeing Someone Else

One of the most significant meanings behind men and women stopping texting each other on a daily basis is that they’re seeing someone else.

The real question here is whether or not you were their main chick, or their side-chick, to begin with.

11. He’s Ghosting You Back

If you’ve stopped texting you guy in the past, and he felt ghosted, he could simply be ghosting you back to get even.

12. He Was Abducted By the Mothership

There is a 1-in-a-billion chance that your guy stopped texting because he was picked up by a pack of Grays joying riding the Milkyway.

The good thing is that as soon as the mothership drops him back off at home, you’ll more than likely hear from him right away.

13. He Was Murdered

If he hasn’t texted you even once in the past few weeks, after texting daily, it is possible that he’s been hacked to pieces and flushed down a komode.

14. He Doesn’t Know How to Handle Your Family

When a guy isn’t accepted by your family and friends, or at least doesn’t feel like he is, your relationship/dating life could get a bit complicated.

There is also a possibility that he’s not texting because he’s busy shopping for the best family-sized totes to chuck your family and friends into the nearest lake or river so he can have you all to himself.

15. He Lost Interest Suddenly

The reality is, he probably wasn’t actually that interested in you, to begin with, or he is just bored.

16. He Doesn’t Know if He’s Into Men or Women

No girl wants to hear it, or think it, but it is possible the reason he stopped texting is actually that he’s confused about his sexual orientation.

Depending on how close you are, he may or may not get back in touch with an explanation eventually. That said, it is a touchy area… so, don’t hold your breath.

17. He Thinks You’re Into Someone Else

When they are convinced you’re into someone else, they won’t likely wait for you to let them know… they will simply start ghosting you.

18. He Wants You to Ask Him to Come Back

If you’ve been dating, and he suddenly stops texting, he might just want to see how strongly you feel about the relationship.

Further, what he really wants is for you to tell him that he’s your favorite person and to come back.

19. He’s in Space, Saving the World From a Giant Asteroid

The least likely scenario on our list, but one worth mentioning, is to always be opened minded and take his word for whatever he says is going on.

20. He’s Playing Call of Duty with the Guys

Guys can be pretty goofy when they get around their best friends. So, if he’s normally easy to reach, and texts you regularly, but suddenly goes MIA, he could simply be playing Call of Duty with the guys.

The good thing is that these ghosting sessions only last for hours, rather than days, nights, or weeks.

21. He’s Secretly Batman and is off Saving Gotham

Sometimes things happen that change the course of your life forever.

How to Respond When a Guy Stops Texting You Daily

Nothing is more nerve-wracking than not knowing what’s going on with your significant other, which is exactly the mind space he puts you in when he stops texting and disappears.

Here are a few of the most common ways to respond when your guy stops texting:

Stay Calm

Avoid jumping to conclusions and try to initiate a conversation with him.

Consider the Possibilities

Before you get paranoid, consider the full range of possibilities behind why he stopped texting you all the time.

Did you have an argument? Have your friends and family offended him or scared him off? In the end, you’ll have to get the truth from him.

Reach Out

Reaching out lets him know that you noticed his sudden stop in texting and that you care about it. It’s a good time to let him know you miss him too.

Say You’re Sorry

If there is something that you’ve done to upset him, saying you’re sorry is a great first step in getting your relationship back on track.

Keep in mind that a guy is not likely to ask you to apologize, or even tell you that his feelings are hurt. That’s why you’ll have to be honest with yourself when considering why he’s stopped texting.

Accept His Apology

If the guy really matters to you, your relationship should be more valuable than the fact he stopped texting you temporarily.

Be Supportive

Depending on the sort of person you’re dealing with, he may take his dear sweet time to contact you again once he’s ghosted you for a while.

That’s why you may need to be the one to get in contact again, be it via text or phone to lend him a bit of encouragement (and forgiveness).

Tell Him to Get Lost

Send him one more text, wishing him good luck with life and to burn in hell. Then block him before he can answer!
