I heard that when a guy asks what's up it can mean he wants to casually see if your busy so he can ask you to hang out if your not. So now multiple times this guy I like (and I think likes me) has texted me first something like "Yo What's up?" "or "Hey what's up?" of once just "Hey!". So then I typically write something back like "Nm Hbu?" or if something new actually is up I'll tell him. So he'll write back and comment. But as far as when I ask him what's up all he ever says is something like "Just chillin' nothing fancy" or something like that. Why does he just text me this but when I ask what's up with he all he says is "just chillin?" and what is the meaning of saying "nothing fancy" ? Is there any chance he could be asking to see if I'm busy (without me really knowing) so he it isn't awkward for him if I'm too busy to hang out? He is pretty shy around me these days.

he just trying to start a conversation with you that's how I use that phrase. but when you say "nm hbu" you give him the impresion you don't really wanna talk to him too much. If you like the guy could give him something more to work with. could try something along the lines of "feel like grabbing a coffee" and see if he wants to join. basically give him more to work with he seems shy or at least continue the conversation.0
