This guy has shown interest in me for a couple months now. He initiated conversation, was really goofy and tried to make me laugh, starting sitting next to me in class, holds doors open, appears out of nowhere all the time, and even bought my drinks a couple of different times when we ran into each other at the bars in our college town.
Our teacher made us get everyone's numbers the first day of class, so I decided to be bold and text him to say thank you for the drinks the following day, but he never texted back anything. He was still friendly and flirty in class a couple days after but never said anything about it so I felt kind of like an idiot.
I guess my question is: is there any reason you would NOT text a girl back if you liked her? Could he be trying to play it cool or is that a clear sign that I was just reading too much into it?

He definitely likes you. I think the problem is he doesn't want to make a move (replying back to the text would probably be one). There is a line to cross between chivalry/buying drinks and asking you out on a date; he probably is nervous about crossing that line since he's not sure if you like him. You've repeatedly said how he has flirted with you, but you don't sound like you've given him much feedback in return.
Guys are very responsive to physical signs like touch and apparent visual stuff. Try taking the flirting to the next level (casually touch his arm or something) and if he doesn't ask you out, perhaps you want to make the next move?0
