Does responsiveness matter?

I have high standards when it comes to reaching out to people. I'm prompt about returning emails, text messages, and phone calls. When a friend is hurting, I want to be there for them. When they celebrate, I'll be right there at the party.

I'm very stringent -- some might say hardcore -- in my standards for others when it comes to this. I get really pissed when people don't get back to me or fail to show the interest in me that I show in them. I'm not too interested in changing those standards, but I hope to feel less anger and hurt when they're tested.
