You're at a party having a good time with your friends, things are getting interesting, and you decide to send your crush a Snap. So you do. You sent out your first-ever snap (YAY!). But no response. 

We all get it. You send out a snap to your crush, the situation is looking promising, and you might get contacted back soon. But what if he doesn't get your snap? That leaves you with endless thoughts about what could have gone wrong.

Have you ever sent a Snapchat to someone, and they didn't open it? You probably wondered why. There are many possibilities as to why this person hasn't opened your Snapchat:

Best 5 Reasons Why He Hasn't Opened Your Snapchat

It's so easy to feel disappointed when you spend your time sending snaps and not getting responses. However, there could be a few reasons behind his lack of response. Here are five possible reasons why he has yet to answer back!

#1 He Is Occupied

You might be wondering why your guy isn't opening your snaps. Hey, I know you're feeling some type of way about not getting a callback, but it's not going to get you any closer to getting with them. 

He could be at work, and his phone is dead, or maybe he left his phone in another room. You don't even know if they did it on purpose, so sending out an angry snap will only push them further away.

The important thing is not to let yourself get too upset over it. Give him some time and send another few snaps today! Make sure you have something funny and creative to say.

A Message Which You Can Send Instead Of An Angry One: "I'm sure among the other people you're communicating with, there are some that are more important to you than I am. I understand if you miss my messages once in a while and need some space to breathe. However, you must let me know when I'm missing something really important. When you don't respond to my chats right away, it makes me feel like you think the other ones are more interesting and important than I am."

#2 He Doesn't Want To Be Pushy

Understandably, you might feel a little hurt about the fact that he hasn't opened your snaps. After all, you two seem to be getting along rather well. However, keep in mind that there are many reasons he hasn't opened your snaps. 

The most prominent being that he doesn't want to appear to be pushing himself on you. You might not know this, but most guys aren't exactly comfortable with the idea of communicating with a girl online before meeting them in person.

Pro-Tip: Don't worry, if their Snapchat isn't open, it doesn't mean they don't love you! We are merely reminding you that some people have different needs in a relationship and feel more comfortable with one or two chats versus twelve snapchats a day!

#3 He Is Ignoring You

Despite his immobile silence, you want to get through to him. This silence is loud and clear. He doesn't want to communicate with you anymore, but you don't understand why. 

Listen, I know the feeling when you send a guy Snapchat, and he won't even bother to look at them or reply. It makes you feel hurt and upset, but the truth is if he doesn't open your snaps, he is just not that into you and probably doesn't want to talk to you at all.

The best thing to do when this happens is unfriend and forget about him because it will only make things worse for you by trying to talk to a guy that doesn't want anything to do with you.

Just because he hasn't responded to your Snapchat doesn't mean he's not interested in you. There could be several reasons, and you have to just chill out right now and go on with your life. You shouldn't make yourself feel lower than you already do by analyzing what he's up to.

#4 He Is Not Comfortable With Snapchat

One of the many reasons your Snapchat is being unopened is that he might be clueless about it. He doesn't even know that this is how Snapchat works. But don't let yourself get overwhelmed with thoughts like "I'm not important enough." In fact, he might be finding out new things about you and your life through the other applications, which he's always been so fond of scrolling through. 

Remember, it's perfectly natural – not everyone is as obsessed with chatting on their phones as you are.

#5 Maybe He Is Unaware About Your Snap

With the hundreds of people sending your crush chat requests every hour, it's no wonder that he might take a few days to accept yours finally. So why does it feel like he's not opening your chats? 

Remember, you may be sending him a notification every time you send him a snap. He may not even be aware he has pending conversations since he's not checking his phone constantly like you are!

While there are many possibilities as to why they haven't opened Snapchat, here are a few quick and easy steps that you can take to get them to open Snapchat at once! 

How To Make Him Open Your Chat, Instantly?

What's the use of having a boy you like, if he doesn't notice? You really want him to open that chat screen and message you back. Here are some ideas on how to make him see you in another light and notice you more often:

#1 Be YOU!!!

People who are attracted to each other tend to gravitate towards one another. If you're looking for a way to make someone notice you, simply be yourself. 

You don't have to pretend to be something that you're not or impress them with a lot of material things. Someone who is into you will take the time out of their day to get to know you and find something about you that draws them in closer.

#2 Have Fun With App

Your crush will love to see photos of you showing your true personality. Be yourself and let him fall in love with the real you. You don't always have to be pretty; sometimes, it is just as cute to be silly, goofy, or doing something silly. 

Selfies can reveal your funny qualities that he may not have seen before. Your silly moments won't make him run away but will make him want to know more about you.

#3 Share What You Are Up to

You have to keep things fun! You can't post pictures of you and your friends doing the same old thing. For those men looking for something more, photos of you with friends and family or taking part in hobbies and interests. Show him what kind of person you are by trying out new perspectives.

#4 Don't Bombard Him With Snaps!!!

Have you sent three Snapchat messages in a row to your crush? 

Don't do it. 

It'll just look a little desperate. Instead, wait for him to reply to one message before you send another. This way, he won't feel like he has to keep up with an endless stream of photos and videos from you, and he'll be more likely to open them.

#5 Have Real Conversations

If you've been snapping back and forth for a while, things might get a bit stale. Up the ante by asking him questions and for his opinions. Show him you're interested in him rather than just a friend. He'll probably ask you some questions back, giving you even more material to work with.

Remember that confidence is critical when approaching an attractive man. Do not immediately throw your heart on his feet and beg. No matter how much you want to be with him, give him some space and let him do the chasing!

One of the worst parts of getting ignored or rejected is being left wondering what happened. If you're just wondering why your crush didn't respond, we hope this article has helped you in some way. You're probably trying to figure out why it happened so that you can fix the problem before re-approaching your crush in the future. 

From figuring out why he hasn't opened your Snapchat to making him open your chat instantly, I hope I've answered your questions here.
