in the world of electronic communication there are two kind of people. Responders and non-responders.
I am a responder. if you send me a text or an email I will respond unless it is clear that no response is warranted. it is important for me to let you, the sender know that I received your communication.
My husband is a non-responder. This can be very frustrating. did the text send? did what I have to say mean nothing to you, or make you mad? Are you ok?
Having a non-responder husband adds to my recent insecurities. I over analyze the meaning behind getting no response. In reality there is no reason for the non-response, it is just his way. I have addressed this matter with my husband. and I think he has tried, but is still mostly a non-responder. I don’t mind the no response to an informational text such as “I am at work now” but when I send a text telling him that I love him or miss him or can’t wait to see him some kind of acknowledgement of the sentiment would be nice. When I get no response I picture rolled eyes and a oh brother attitude. when I get a response I feel validated and appreciated. A response means a great deal to me.
If you read this I am curious to know which category you fall under, and if you are in a relationship with the opposite type.
