I don't understand the wallflower-wimpy attitude many folks have that they MUST respond to a text right away and are required to answer their phone when it rings. You have more right to your life than any other person does, so take ownership!

The guy has done nothing wrong - he has merely continued to text when you responded to him. I would not be having a conversation with him about too much texting until/unless he texts more than you. For now, you are every bit as much to blame.
Whoa, that seems a bit harsh! I think she's just afraid of being rude, which I think is completely understandable. Some people really take it to heart when people ignore their texts. Plus, she seems to like him, so she probably doesn't want to send him the wrong message of "leave me alone."

What I was going to suggest has already been suggested: wait hours between texts, and let him know that you're not a constant-texting kind of person. If that doesn't work, then... I don't know.
