Applying the 3-hour Rule To Your Text Messages
#1
I am going to share the 3-hour rule with you. I am not saying that you should do that. It's not an advice. It's just something I wanted to present to you. It's up to you to decide whether you want to behave like this or not.


The 3-Hour Rule

Short version: If a woman has not replied to your text in 3 hours, you are better off deleting her number or blocking her. 

Texting her at midnight and expecting a response in 3 hours is irrational. The rule applies to day hours. E.g., You text her at 10 a.m. She replies. Then you text her again at 11:30. She hasn't replied until 14:30. You delete or even block her.

Why?

The goal is to reduce the number of women who are not interested in you. Most women are on their phones 24/7. Even those who work jobs that prevent them from holding their phones non-stop have breaks and therefore time to answer in 3 hours or less. 

The likelihood that a woman will spend 3 hours without looking at her phone is very low. 

Benefits

- your subconscious mind can rest. When you reduce the possibility for contact to zero, you stop expecting. Sure. Some will pretend that this is their default state, but as long as there is a possibility for her to contact you, the dreamer in you will think that "there's still chance".

- you test her. Truth be told, many women will reply after 3 hours. They may even reply after days and wonder why you cut them. They may even think that they like you. They may even like you. But the truth is that there are too many "maybes" here. Their actions didn't deliver. She put you on hold because she was uncertain consciously or not. There was too much hesitation.

Think about all the dates you've had. How many dates did you have with girls responding super slowly and putting you on hold especially once you have asked the tough questions:

- What's your number?
- Would like to meet me tomorrow?....etc.

If I may add to this very good advice.

What I have found is quite useful is after you have obtained her number (obviously you would want her number because if ever she says "give me yours instead" its not going to fly), you then send the first message. After that you delete her number. 

Then you wait. That way there is no way for you to fold and text her again. Its in her hands which actually feels quite good because it gives you a sense of ease.

Also, keep deleting the conversation. So if its on whatsapp delete the conversation after every message you send. That way you won't get in your own head psycho analyzing everything you say.

So all you end up having is a sent message. You don't save her number or the conversation. It basically helps to prevent any sort of premature attachment before a date, which alot of guys will do out of sheer lack of options (which is to be expected).

Hope this helps!

Proper advice.

Think about it. Would she hesitate to text you back if you was Brad Pitt? Probably not. So in her eyes you are not a first-class male which is why she puts you somewhere in the middle of her queue ("on hold").

Maybe sometimes in the future (when she got pumped and dumped by the guys placed before you, or if she needs some big spender (unfortunately, just your money, guys ...), or she becomes older (read: less attractive)), she might remember you when scrolling through her phone book on a rainy Sunday afternoon in November.

It's all about supply and demand. She has plenty of options - you don't. So don't play her game. If we're talking about online dating here, just set up more dates (yes, it's plural) with other girls in advance before you go on a date and try to get that girl out of your mind as soon as the whole assessment is over.

Maybe she texts you back within an acceptable time frame, who knows. Only *then* it's time to make the next move.

Is the 3 hrs based on  the amount of time you can go without consuming protein until your body starts eating it's own muscle tissue? If so, are they related?

I think it works but I also think people need to take in other things . like girl I was texting was on holiday I seen pics and she did respond straight away but once she dident respond for 4 hours because work so it depends what have been said also . basically if you give her your number she should text first . I think 3 hour rule only work for online dating .

I dont use my phone everyday I replay when I can . I think if you been texting a lot and then ghost you within 1 day drop her .


sometimes I am at work I seen her text I wait 4 to 5 to respond I think you can easily tell if she wants you anyway . because you be meeting . I hade wait a week because she was on holiday and that when we have time off . I fuck her as well

I have(had) a female friend that responds inconsistently now after we've grown apart. I've been thinking about deleting her number. Reading this thread was the inspiration I needed. Just deleted it now. I feel better already. *sigh of relief*

You did the right thing. After some time it will become easier to do it more often, almost second nature.

Its insecurity that makes men hold onto dead end phone numbers.

Men and women don't make for good friends. Because we were meant to be sexual partners not buddies. That probably offends lots of liberal men and women, but its the truth.

I also had a female friend. We worked together for five years I think. Never had interested in her. She neither. But we kept on talking for a long time after she quit her job. 

Eventually, however, I started to see how easy she has it in the dating world because she is a woman.

E.g., She made a Tinder account and in a week had a boyfriend whereas I was struggling to secure dates. 

She isn't pretty and not particularly smart, but she could be fun sometimes - I give her that. 

On a couple of occasions, I trolled her by inviting her on a non-romantic date. I really had no interest in her. I knew she will refuse - which is why I did it. 

A couple of years ago, I dropped her/ghosted her because I didn't need another texting buddy. I could write her today, and she would respond, but I won't. 

It's true - friendship between a man and a woman is nonsense. You are either colleagues or a couple.

I have many girls that are friends I don't class it as nonsense . I don't see them in sexual way just pal. I won't be friends with them if find them attractive . Your even interest. Fall on poltatnic love. Sometimes some people just need friend.

One them are even sister to me. I wont waste my time being texting buddy they be my real life friends
