22 Clear Reasons They Keep Texting Every Day & Just friends

Texting a guy can be fun, but texting every day but just friends? When it comes from a guy that you are only friends with it can lead you to a bit of confusion especially if they do it every day. Like, why is he texting every day if we are just friends? You can go directly to ask him this, but that might come off as being rude, I guess that’s why you are here.

So back to your question, why is he texting me? A guy who you are only friends with could be texting you every day because he sees you as more than a friend. He is attached to you, friend-zoned you, he is using you to kill boredom, etc.

Although I won’t be able to pinpoint why that particular male friend is texting every day, I am going to list and explain 22 clear reasons why guys do text a girl they are friends with, every day.


22 clear reasons they keep texting every day & just friends

1. Just flirting 

This depends on the kind of text you are receiving from him. If he decides to just be friends with you, but he usually sends you flirty texts and has not made any further moves, it might be that he is just flirting with you, simply for fun.

2. He has feelings 

A guy can decide to be friends with you, but that does not mean he doesn’t like you or has feelings for you. Maybe he is not ready for a relationship, the fact he has feelings for you would always make him want to text you.

3. Bored 

If you are asking yourself the question; “why is he texting everyday if we are just friends,” well, he might just be doing it out of boredom. Yes, believe me, boredom can make us do a lot of things. People can start conversations just to pass time and he might be doing that.

4. Wants you to himself

This is like being clingy, but it’s a controlling trait. Some guys want you to always talk to them, not necessarily because they have feelings for you, but because they don’t want you to talk to anyone else. So, if you are trying to find out why he is texting you every day, it might be because of this. You can try to see if he has other controlling traits.

5. Lonely 

Just like boredom, being lonely can make us do a lot of things we wouldn’t do on a normal day. So if you are asking yourself why he is texting everyday if we are just friends, then this might be the answer. A guy can just be lonely but he does not want to date you so he will be texting you to curb his loneliness.

6. He wants to have sex with you 

The simple answer to your question: why is he texting me everyday if we are just friends, could be that he is a player. But you can know this by the kind of text he is sending you. He might claim he loves you, but all he wants is for you to come over. He keeps sending all sorts of flirting texts.

So, sleeping with you might just be the reason for his frequent chat.

7. Attracted to you 

Maybe he is just attracted to you. He finds it pleasant to text you, so he keeps doing it.

8. Does not know what he wants

He may just be confused, maybe not your kind of confused, but in a way that he does not even know if he wants you to be more than a friend or not. He has the desire to always talk to you, but he has not been able to define his attraction toward you.

9. Using you as a bridge 

People usually do this after a breakup, when they don’t want to feel that loneliness, and hurt that comes with breaking up. They would keep intensely contacting you, which might make you think they are in love. Well, they are just using you as a shield; so as not to feel the pain, till they find someone else to replace their ex.

10. Just broke up and he needs a companion 

Unlike the previous reason, he is not necessarily using you as a bridge here, he might just be using you as a companion, so as not to feel the pain of breaking up. Soon he might stop texting you if this is the reason.

11. You are his plan B

If you are wondering why he is texting everyday when you are Only friends. Have you thought of the possibility of you just being a plan B to him? Maybe he is dating someone, or already has someone he is looking to have a relationship with. He might just be texting you, to keep his options open.

12. The chatty type 

Some guys just enjoy texting. They may not be texting just you, but everyone in their contacts. So, if he is that type, that might be the reason, he is texting you frequently. To him, he feels texting is the best way to reach out.

13. It’s just an ego boost 

He might just be texting you because he wants his friends to know he is talking to someone as beautiful as you. He is doing that to boost his ego; to make himself feel cool around his friends. Guys do this a lot, he might even go as far as showing your chat to his friends.

14. Finds you interesting 

When we find people interesting to be with and talk with we would want to be with them all the time. So just be the reason he is all over you.

He might just be a stalker or a psychopath, who would randomly text you every day for no reason. If he is sending you senseless and unmeaningful texts, then this might be true about him.

17. Playing mind games 

Some guys do this, maybe just as a test. He might tell you he does not want a relationship with you but keeps texting you, to see if maybe you would make the first move, or give him a green flag.

18. Trying to take things slow

Not everyone likes jumping into relationships. Some people like things slow. So, he might have told you he wanted to be only friends but kept texting you because he does not want to rush things, trying to take things slow. He might ask you out soon.

19. Enjoying the chase 

You might just be someone that he wants to play around. He will just text and act like he wants something, but he is never going to ask for something serious. Maybe he is doing it just for fun or wants to sleep with you. But he wants nothing serious.

Does texting every day equate to being clingy?

It depends on who you are texting. If you are texting someone who does not feel the same way as you, you are going to come off as clingy to them. But if you are texting someone that is attracted to you every day, it is not clingy.

If you are in a relationship with someone you are supposed to hear from them every day. Don’t get me wrong, not every minute of the day. But at least, you should reach out to each other, every day. If this is what you meant, then it’s not being clingy.

But if you text someone every minute of the day, then that might be clinginess or obsession.

How often should you text your female friend?

Depends on how close you are. If you are close friends, maybe a few times a week should be okay. If they are someone you like, you can text them more times a week, but not every day.

Women like it when you make them miss you and also give them attention.  If you are always texting they won’t have any time to miss you. But if you and your female friend are okay with texting every day, then you can go ahead with it.

Would someone text you if they were not interested in you?

Yes, they might text you even if they are not interested. But you should be able to tell from their texting if they are interested or not. If they reply fast and don’t mind texting first, then it’s a sign that they are interested. If they do the opposite, they are either not interested or are playing hard to get.

How to stop texting someone everyday politely?

1. Get a distraction 

Do something that takes your mind off them. Whether it’s going out with friends, going on an adventure, working out, or working yourself, this will help you not miss them as you do.

Even when you do, you would be able to resist the urge to text them, when you keep yourself busy.

2. Write it down 

Instead of sending them the text, write it to yourself on your phone or a piece of paper. This will help you get it out of your head. Or if you need them so much, go through your chats with them or their pictures, this will help ease the feeling of wanting to talk to them.

Yes, you can do it without texting them, but by doing this they won’t find out because you won’t be texting them all day.

To wrap things up, texting is an easy and quick way, we can reach our spouses, friends, family, and even coworkers. So guys can text you every day for multiple reasons.
