We've all been there...you're texting back and forth with a guy, and the responses are pretty quick in the beginning, everything is exciting, you're getting the butterflies....and gradually, the responses get slower and slower to be returned (or, it's very sudden that he's taking so long to reply).
You start to freak out, thinking he's not interested in you, he's texting another girl, or whatever else our creative minds think up! Your natural response may be to scold him and educate him on how he should be responding, but I want you to consider a different approach.

You're trying to talk to him and find out what the problem is and he insists nothing's wrong, you're just acting crazy.
Ugly: The big, intense, explosive fight sesh that goes until 4 in the morning. You've said...
