The Sagittarius man isn’t always the best communicator. This is especially true when you’re not talking to him in person.
Whether through text or on the phone, it’s just not a big priority for him to maintain a line of communication. He can be warm and talkative one day and suddenly disappear the next for weeks.
He doesn’t need constant contact to maintain his feelings for friends, family, and lovers. He may write, call, or text you back eventually, but he may not reach out to you first unless he has something cool planned for you to do together.
Because of this, it can be really hard to read him when he’s not texting you back. Is he mad or upset with you? Or perhaps he’s not mad at all, and simply off doing his own thing.
No matter what’s going on his head, there are specific things you should do when a Sagittarius man isn’t texting back.

What you should do when a sag man stops texting
Relax and take a step back. It can be stressful when a man seemingly disappears on you. It might create a compulsion in you to act, perhaps by reaching out to him to see if something is wrong. But this is the last thing you should do with a Sag man. He doesn’t like stressful energy, especially if it feels unnecessary to him and makes him feel pressured.
Carry on with life as usual. Sagittarius is a busy guy, and there’s a decent chance that he’s just been caught up with his schedule and activities instead of getting back to you. It’s best for you to do the same. And better for the love match, as well, since he likes partners who can take breaks from communicating and are happy to lead a busy life while apart. When he does talk to you again he will probably have stories to share with you and expects you to have interesting things to share as well.
Call or text in a casual way. He’s a laid back guy, so he shouldn’t mind you sending him a quick check-in if a reasonable amount of time has passed since you’ve last communicated. He may be going through a tough time and would actually benefit from your companionship, but didn’t want to bother you with it. The important thing here is that you come across as unflustered. You’re just checking in because he’s come across your mind, not because you’ve been stressing about him. Remember, if you come off as worried or reactive you will only push him further away. Instead be light, fun, and mention some fun activity you were thinking of doing to see if he’ll bite on it.
What you shouldn’t do when a Sag man stops texting
Don’t ask him if anything is wrong. One of the easiest ways to scare off a Sag man is to crowd him. And by asking him if something is wrong when he hasn’t been texting you for a bit is a surefire way to get him to feel crowded. To you, it might seem like you’re concerned and caring, but to him, he sees it as prodding, needy behavior.
Don’t try to figure out what he’s been up to or be nosy in any way. Any prying behavior freaks him out. As I’ve eluded to a lot in this article, he’s a flighty guy who hates stress and pressure. You might be really curious what’s been going on, and if something is wrong with you guys, but it’s best to relax and let it go. Don’t stalk him or send other people to snoop on him, because if he finds out he won’t be at all pleased with you.
Absolutely no accusations. One of the worst things you could do is accuse him of avoiding or ghosting you. Sure, you could do this if you really are done with him and it would make you feel better to say it. But if you really like this guy, treating him like this is never a good way to get him to pay more attention to you. He will see it as possessive behavior and will want to turn away from you. He can cut ties quickly if he wants to, and attacking him could lead him to remove you from his life.
Don’t provoke him or create drama to get him to contact you. He hates contrived or fabricated behavior. If he senses that you’re trying to stir things up just to get him to reach out to you he will see it as needy and insecure. Trying to make him jealous can backfire as well. If he sees photos of you with other guys he may just assume you’ve moved on. Or, if he sees it correctly as a way to get a rise out of him, he will label you as petty and probably still move on. This doesn’t mean you should avoid posting or sharing interesting things that you’ve been up on social media. Do your thing. It’s the intention that counts, and if you’re genuinely out having a fun time it could draw him back to you.
When a Sag man ignores your texts
Okay so maybe you didn’t heed the warnings and decided to text him again, even though he hasn’t been getting back to you. At this point, he’s blatantly ignoring your texts.
Maybe, just maybe, he’s actually been unavailable this whole time and hasn’t had a chance to read or respond to your messages. And when he does see your messages, he will get back to you. More than likely, though, he’s grown tired of you, and you’re continual messaging has pushed him even farther away.
Unfortunately, at this point, there’s not too much you can do to compel him to reach out to you. If he’s over you there’s not too much you can do that will bring him back. Applying more pressure now just makes it even less likely.
If you really want him, you’ll have to leave things be for a while.
The most important takeaway to help you navigate him not texting you back is to manage your emotions and keep your cool. Don’t overreact to the absence. Play it cool, as he does. Be engaging and make your life interesting. If he’s been drifting away the biggest cause is typically that he’s grown bored by your time together. Don’t take it personally, just make your life more exciting and he will come back.
