He Doesn’t Reply Back or Takes Forever to do It

This I think is the biggest answer for how his text behavior signals he's not interested. I went through this experience myself with a guy I was interested in. Sometimes I would send him a text and he would take hours to respond back. Other times he just wouldn’t respond at all, as if I never sent him anything.

People I knew kept telling me that he was just taking it slow. Don’t buy into that at all. Thanks to research, I did I found out that they were in fact wrong. I found out that when a guy is into you he will not hesitate to respond back to a text. He definitely will not blow off any texts you send him. He will respond to them in a timely manner. If he doesn’t reply back or takes forever to do it he isn’t interested in you at all.

Research shows that when a person is interested in someone, they are more likely to respond to their texts promptly. In fact, a study by the dating app Hinge found that people who are truly interested in someone are 12% more likely to respond to their texts within five minutes. Additionally, if someone consistently takes hours or even days to respond to your texts, it could be a sign that they are not interested. This behavior is known as "breadcrumbing," where someone keeps you on the backburner by sporadically responding to your texts to keep you interested. If you find yourself constantly waiting for a response from someone, it may be time to reevaluate their level of interest in you.

He Doesn’t Inquire into Your Well-being

This was another sign that the guy I was interested in didn’t feel the same way. He never sent me any texts asking me how my day was. At the time, I was texting him, I was still in college. Not one time did he ask how any of my classes were going. Nor did he ever send any texts asking me what I was up to. If a guy is interested in you he will ask how you are doing. He will want to know because he cares. If he doesn’t ask he doesn’t care. Even guys who are just friends with you will ask you such a basic question.

When someone truly values you, their curiosity about your life is natural. It goes beyond courtesy; it's a genuine desire to engage with your experiences and feelings. If his texts lack this warmth and interest, it may be because he’s not emotionally invested. Remember, a person who is into you will make the effort to delve into the details of your daily life. They'll want to celebrate your successes and offer comfort during your struggles. Without that initiative from him, it's likely you're not a priority in his thoughts.

He Sends Texts That Are Short or Don’t Reveal Personal Details

This is another dead giveaway that he isn’t interested in you at all. He won’t text you anything about his personal life. He won’t tell you where he works, what he does, and basically doesn’t give up any personal details about his life. For example, if he plays some kind of sport he won’t tell you how the match went. He will keep the conversation general. His texts will also be short, sweet to the point. Even if yours are long, his won’t be. Which means he isn’t interested in the conversation or anything you have to say.

***

You might notice that his texts seem almost mechanically courteous, like an automated response you'd get from a customer service bot. If you're sharing something that happened during your day or expressing emotions, his replies lack empathy — often a simple "that's cool" or "ok" with no follow-up questions. It's as if there's a barrier preventing the conversation from becoming more meaningful. Those breezy, non-committal messages are a clear signal: he's keeping you at arm's length.

He Doesn’t Ask You Any Personal Questions

If a guy is interested in you, naturally he will want to know everything about you. Which means he will ask you about your life. He will ask you what you do for a living, what your goals are, what kind of music you like, etc. These are basic dating questions that you think most guys would ask. Shockingly there are some guys who don’t. Which means that they don’t care enough to know. If they don’t care enough to know about you as a person, then send them packing. They aren’t worth your time or energy. Avoid guys who only talk about themselves.

***

If the conversation is all about him and his interests, without ever diving into what makes you tick, it's a red flag. A worthwhile partner revels in learning the quirky details that make you unique. If he can't muster the curiosity to inquire about your favorite childhood memory or how you like your coffee, he's showing a lack of investment in the relationship. Real connections are a two-way street; they involve mutual discovery and sharing. Life's too short to be an audience to someone’s monologue – find someone who cherishes your story as much as their own.

He Doesn’t Flirt Back or Doesn’t Show Emotion through Texts

He won’t use emojis, exclamation marks, or anything resembling how he feels. He may put an "lol," or "haha" in his texts, but that’s it. Another big sign that he isn’t interested in you is he doesn’t flirt back. If you try to flirt with him by sending him a heart or flirty gif he won’t send it back. He may even laugh at you for sending one. You feel humiliated after your attempt obviously failed. In my experience, if a guy is totally interested in you he will be the first one to flirt. He will do so constantly. You will not have to be the first one to do it. He also will not hesitate to use an emoji because he feels comfortable with you to do it.

The sooner you learn that he isn’t interested in you the better off you are. You may have even figured out that he isn’t interested before you went on your first date. Believe me, it feels worse to figure it out after you have hung out with him. A guy’s texts will tell you if he isn’t interested in you well before you are around him in person. If that is the case, move on to someone worthwhile.
