There are lots of differences in the way that individuals communicate and interact. One difference I often notice is whether a given individual does or does not respond. Using myself as an example, I will typically respond to a text message or email even if no question is posed. Often I will either Thank the sender or provide some unnecessary comment.
My wife on the other hand almost never responds to an information only message. If nothing is being requested, don’t expect a response. I find that lots of people exhibit this behavior and there’s nothing wrong with it. The lack of a response doesn’t necessarily mean the information isn’t appreciated. It is important to realize that just because you do something a certain way, don’t expect others to do the same.
