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! :hi:

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.
