They aren’t huge on texting, so they’re usually not sending the first message. In fact, sometimes, they forget to text back completely. Or will take weeks to get around to answering the message. It’s not you. It’s them.
They are too busy to send the first text, but when you reach out to them, they will put effort into their response. They will make sure that they show you your effort is being appreciated and they want to hear from you.
They always have plenty to say, so they are commonly texting first. And they aren’t mad about it. As long as the other person keeps the conversation going, they’re happy to keep sending the first message.

They will send the first text if they have to — but they’re going to spend forever typing out different options and trying to figure out what sounds the best. They might consult their friends too. It’s a stressful event.
