When you text someone important and get no reply. Often leads to a resending of texts or calls to make sure they received it (along with the danger of looking desperate). Can invoke anxiety that you wont ever get a text back.
Justin: Dude, she hasn't texted me back yet! Maybe I should resend the text to make sure she got it...

Ryan: Dude, you sound desperate...Sounds like you've got Text-Anxiety to me.

Justin: Shut up!

When you send a text and you wait anxiously for a reply. Mainly when sending to a person you are interested in or apologizing for a ridiculous action committed the night before in a drunken state.
8:30am -{You} "Hey (insert hot chick's name here), nice meeting you last night. Lets go out for a drink later this week."

9:00am-

10:00am- {you mention to your friend} I texted the hottie I met last night when i woke up this morning and she hasn't responded.
{friend} Damn bro, you got some serious ATA (Awaiting Text Anxiety). She probably was so drunk she hasn't got outta bed yet.
