About two weeks ago, I reconnected with a second cousin of mine. She was visiting with her family, and although our two families are close, I never had the opportunity to really communicate with her (we live in two different countries). She seemed really eager to reconnect (she said so herself) and we started talking after she left.
The problem is that when I text her, it takes her up to a week to respond. I know that this isn’t because she doesn’t want to talk, but because she is very busy in school and doesn’t have so much free time.
My question: how do I get her to respond to my texts and continue this relationship - knowing that she definitely wants to but is very busy - without coming across as pushy or nudgy?
