Me: Hey! We should have another movie night soon
Person I am texting: I agree. Are your parents back yet?
Me: Yeah, they got back this morning

Does this response from me warrant a response?

It’s been like 24 hours >:-(

What do I do? I want to hang out with this person, but I don't want to seem over eager or pushy or anything like that.

What is the context? Does it matter if your parents are there or not?

You can always text the person to make more specific plans.

I'm sorry that you haven't received a response, though. Been there––it's very frustrating! Good luck.

Texting can be a pretty tough way to communicate well, so my best advice is to go ahead and just ring this person up and then tell them you want to hang out directly, asking them if they'd like to hang out with you.
