responders vs non-responders.

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.   

Please Respond!!!
