You get a text.
Should you respond right away? Can you wait a bit? When do you cross the line into rudeness?
Texting is a topic that etiquette experts Elaine Swann and Diane Gottsman are asked about frequently. Or they may not have their phone. Both say the appropriate response time depends on what the text is about. Time-sensitive messages should be answered as soon as possible, while you have more time for nonurgent ones.
But not that long. Gottsman, speaking "from a polite factor" believes you should respond within a day.

Sometimes we delay responding because we think we need to come up with an excuse. When the situation is reversed, and you're the one waiting on a text, Swann advises "your follow-up can be as soon as you need it.

She and Swann knock ghosting, the act of disappearing from a relationship of a romantic nature with no explanation. Swann calls it "the opposite of using proper manners. And part of being respectful is understanding "top priority" should be given to the people you are physically with — at the dinner table, at work, at events in the real world — she says. You can always, always wait until later to respond to a text," Swann says.
