Nothing is frustrating other than seeing your boyfriend online and he takes hours to reply.
This can make you feel unwanted by your boyfriend. Fortunately, there is something you can do about this.
You can change this situation by using several tricks that I’m about to share with you in this article.
Without wasting time, let me share with you what you need to know about this.
What to do when your boyfriend takes hours to reply but he is online;
1. Find out why he is not replying to your texts on time.
When your boyfriend takes hours to reply to your texts while he is online the first thing you should do is to find out why he doesn’t reply to your texts early.
Don’t do anything without finding out why he is not replying to your texts on time.
If you do something without confirming what is going on then you can end up messing things up with your boyfriend.
You can find out why he is not replying to your messages on time by calling him or meeting him in person.
When your boyfriend takes hours replying to your texts but he is online don’t keep on sending him a bunch of texts.
You will be wasting your time and energy and that won’t make him get back to you on time.
Use an approach that will get his attention very fast and you will be able to find out why he is not answering your texts on time yet he is online.
The sooner you find these reasons the quicker you will solve this issue.
So, take your time calling him first and see if he will pick up your calls.
It can be that he left his data on and he is doing something else. If that is the case then you will be able to know.
If you have tried to call him several times and he is not picking up your calls then the next thing you should try to do is meet him in person if you are close to him.
Go to his place if it’s possible. Face him and ask why he is taking hours to reply to texts while he is online.
This will give you the answer you are looking for. When you confront him in such a way he will know that you are mad about what he is doing and he will start to reply to your texts pretty fast.
2. Block him when he is not replying on time.
If your boyfriend is online and he is taking hours to reply this is something else you can do.
The moment you send him messages and he takes hours to reply yet he is online then don’t bother stressing yourself.
He doesn’t give you the attention you want why should you bother being in touch with him.
If this is something he has been doing for so long and you have waited for him thinking that he will change and he hasn’t then you should do this.
The only way you will get him to reply to your messages on time is if you get his attention.
You can get his attention pretty quick by blocking him.
When you block him he will be worried and he will know there is something wrong.
He will have no choice but to reach out to you through other means.
If he cares about you he will find a way to contact you or meet you in person.
But if he doesn’t care about you he won’t bother doing that.
So, when he reaches out to you trying to find out why you blocked him then this is the part where you should tell him why did it.
He will eventually know that you blocked him because he was taking hours to reply to your texts yet he was online.
This will make him give you his full attention and he will always be replying to your messages on time.
If you won’t do something like this then there is no way your boyfriend will take you seriously.
4. Make him jealous by posting another guy on your stories or status.
If your boyfriend is not replying to your texts on time but he is online then this is something else you can do.
Make your boyfriend jealous and this will grab his attention.
When you make your boyfriend jealous there is only one thing he will do and that is to reach out to you.
So, if he takes hours to reply to your texts but is online then this can do the trick.
He is taking hours to reply to your texts simply because he is busy with other issues.
Your boyfriend is prioritizing other people over you.
The only way to get his attention is by making him feel like he is going to lose you.
When you make a guy insecure, and it clicks in his mind that he is not the only one fighting for you then he will give you his attention.
This means he will always reply to your texts very quickly without keeping you waiting.
So, make a point of posting some captions about your relationship or pretend that other guys are hitting on you.
You can also choose to post a picture of another guy on your wall, status or stories.
This will quickly get his attention and he will reach out to you very fast.
He will want to know who are the guys you are posting on your wall, status or stories.
This is when you should let him know that you deserve to be prioritized.
Don’t threaten him in any way because he may think you are trying to control him.
When he reaches out to you after you have made him jealous and insecure then here is when you should put your points straight to him.
This will make your boyfriend prioritize you. He won’t keep you waiting when you text him.
5. Let him how you feel about this issue.
The next way to solve this issue is by talking to him about it.
If he takes hours to reply but he is online and this is an issue that bothers you then you should talk to him.
Talk to him if you want to fix this issue.
Let him know how you feel about this issue of him keeping you waiting for hours.
Tell him how you feel without fear. Let him know that this makes you feel unwanted.
The moment you tell your boyfriend about this issue he will know that it’s something that he needs to change.
He will know that he is hurting your feelings by not replying to your texts on time yet he is online.
If he cares about you and he is not doing this on purpose then he will try his best to change this situation.
If there are things that keep him too much busy he will also tell you about them.
But if he doesn’t care about you and he is always taking hours to reply to your texts simply because he is busy with other people he cares about more than you, he will never think of changing.
He will keep on taking longer to reply to your messages yet he is online.
If after talking to him about this issue he doesn’t want to change then you should do the next thing that I’m about to share with you.
6. Stop seeking his attention.
After you have done everything to make your boyfriend reply to your messages fast but he still doesn’t want to change this is the second last option for you.
If he is still taking longer to reply to your messages but he is online then stop seeking his attention.
This is the only part that will enable you to know if he cares about you or not.
If you keep seeking his attention he will think that you are so much interested in doing what you do.
The moment you have tried to change him but he doesn’t want to pay attention then stop putting effort.
Stop seeking his attention and just act like everything is okay.

When you stop putting effort into seeking his attention he will feel that something has changed.
If he still loves you then he will be forced to reach out to you and start fixing the issue between the two of you.
On the other hand, if he doesn’t love you and he doesn’t care about you then he will never try to ask you what is wrong.
The moment he doesn’t bother to ask you what is wrong then distance yourself from him.
Don’t contact him like you used to. Mind your business.
If he doesn’t change his behaviour of taking hours to reply to your texts then don’t text him even after he has replied to your texts after 1 or 2 hours.
Ignore him. If he won’t change then walk away from him.
He is taking you for granted.

If you have tried everything to make your boyfriend reply to your texts on time and he still doesn’t change then you should not bother trying again.
The best thing you can do is to stop texting him completely.
If he cares about you he will reach out to you and he will want to make things right between the two of you.
But if he won’t reach out to you and try to make things right between the two of you then walk away from him. You are probably not as important to him as the people he interacts with online.
The moment you have stopped seeking his attention and he gets back to you wanting to know what is wrong then you should give him your preferences.
You now have the upper hand. You can give him your conditions if he doesn’t want to agree to them then call it a quit.
Show him that you value your time, if he won’t value it then let him know that there is nothing that is going to work between the two of you.
