PLEASE READ THIS AND HELP ME.
The guy I just started seeing is really affectionate when we are together. He holds my hand and kisses it, he hugs me, and he will randomly kiss me. However, over texting, he never really acts interested. His texts are short and infrequent. He knows my family, and is best friends with my cousin. He doesn't date much, I am the first in a long time. He is serious about relationships and is a nice person, so I don't think he is playing me...but I am not sure.
We just had to go away to different schools (we started seeing each other over Christmas break, we are from the same hometown but go to different colleges.) he says he wants to keep talking, and he wants to see me when I come back into town, but his texts don't really seem that way.
the usually texts me first, but the conversations are so brief! I texted him for the first time tonight, and I thought he was busy because his answers seemed so half-assed.
i said "are you busy? I feel bad if I'm distracting you!" and he said "i am about to head over to max's (my cousin) and I was watching the golden globes. no worries :)" so I said "oooh OK lol well I can let you go then, I don't wanna keep you!" and then he never responded
i can't tell if he is just really against texting, or if he doesn't wanna talk to me. his actions in person are far different than over the phone. I really like him, and I have had a crush on him for months, so I want this to work. I am so worried now because we can't see each other much anymore, and we are relying on texting :[

Unlike women, guy's are not good conversationalists. They are not the type to text you constantly and are probably not comfortable texting all the time. So he is just being a guy. Don't let this discourage you, he obviously likes you because in person he is sending definite signals! :D He probably would rather be close to you and get to flirt in person instead of through texting when it can be impersonal. I don't think he is playing you, he's just being a guy. Guys are not into texting all the time and are not good at expressing emotions through words.
