    to text someone

    Is it correct to say, for example: I usually don't text this guy back... or I usually don't text back this guy

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum, qalrei!

    The former is more acceptable than the latter. However, I would remove any doubt about which one to use by saying: "I usually don't return this guy's texts."

    I would say:

    I don't usually text this guy back.
