So... a week ago this guy asked me for my number during class and so I gave it to him and we've texted for a while 3 different times... I kind of have two questions about this...
1. when we text for a while and the conversation starts to die down his texts make it sound like he's tired of me texting him or that he doesn't want me to or something along those lines... but then if I start to say well I'm out of things to say because I don't want to annoy him or anything then he knows that I'm about to end the conversation but he'll be like "you don't want to talk to me anymore?"... this confuses me?
2. why do guys usually ask for a girls number... because they want to be friends or because they have an interest in them... or both?
oh... and before you answer anything I just want to say that I do know texting is not the best way to have a conversation, but for right now it is fine.

I was reluctant to answer because I don't know much about texting...there aren't any girls I can text right now, because no girls like me : / But your update encouraged me to answer. : )
If I ask for a girl's number, I definitely am interested as more than friends. If just friends, I'd probably ask to be friends on Facebook first. Although I would talk to girl "friends" on the phone, I wouldn't make a habit out of doing that with girls I'm not interested in more with.
Don't say "I'm out of things to say"; just say something like "well I'm going to take a nap/do something right now, how about you?" And when he responds just say "Cool, well have fun! ttyl" or something like that. You can throw in a "ttyl" just about anytime to break or end a conversation, as long as it's not like all of a sudden; just mention something you're about to do.
And I don't get his whininess with "You don't want to talk to me anymore?" I can't think of a witty response to that right now, you could say "well I do have a life, lol" or something. (I'd think ttyl should be reassuring, because it means "talk to you LATER.") But don't necessarily put up with it if you want to end a convo and he acts offended/hurt.
Best of luck.0
