I've been talking to this guy for a while and I always have to text him first, but when I text him he always texts back immediately and then after an hour of so of texting he asks to call me (we have talked for 2 hours on the phone before).
Why doesn't he ever text me first? It's not like he doesn't want to talk he always seems very eager to speak to me, but he never initiates any texts. Why?

Maybe he dislikes texting.
Personally, when I text my boyfriend, is just to say "good morning" or something, to make him smile :)
When I want to actually talk to him, we call each other.
Neither him nor I like texting that much; and I'd rather listen to his voice than imagining it when I read his replies...
Maybe that guy is like us and doesn't like texting that much...
On the other hand, this guy can be THAT oblivious XD , not thinking "she's always texting me first", because he does like to talk to you... Or he'd take too long to reply all the time, or he'd never reply at all.
Also, he likes to talk to you by voice, which is a good thing :) , he's comfortable when talking to you (usually, people fell better talking by texts because they can think about what they want to say or what the other person just said. He doesn't need to do that because he's comfortable talking with you and his answers come naturally; that's good!)
Just because he doesn't text you first, doesn't mean he doesn't like to talk to you!
If you're that curious/ annoyed at this, simply ask him the next time you talk to him :)
If you're not too OK with asking that directly because you're still getting to know each other, try to make it sound cute or something. How? Idk, 'cause I always ask things directly or by saying the conclusion first, letting him think about it and ask me what was the cause of it. Usually works better with oblivious guys (or even girls) that don't notice when something they do affects other people until you say I feel this way and they think "that's not good" and then ask you why.
I'd go about that like this, because he seems an oblivious guy:
me: I feel a bit bothered by something.
he: bothered by what?
me: Am I being annoying? I mean, I always text you first and that makes me think that you don't want to talk to me that much, or you'd do it first.
he (probably): What are you talking about?// what? // wth?!
me: It's no problem for me to text you first, I don't mind it. As long as I don't feel like I'm annoying you, because I'd know you like to talk to me if you'd text me first one day or the other...
(sorry if this sounds too needy, but I never would get annoying because of this, so I don't know if this "dialogue" is a bit exagerated or what)
Anyway, you'd get your answer :) !0
