I have been going out with my best female friend of almost 5 years for a little over 2 months now, she makes it very clear that she is very into me in person and wants a relationship so I know the problem isn't because she isn't interested. She very very rarely texts me first and when she texts back they are usually short, emotionless texts that make me feel like I am just bugging her and she isn't interested in me. I tried to just completely not text her and wait for her to text me but that led to 3 days of no contact at all. I haven't kissed her yet and I plan to on out next date, but these mixed messages are confusing me very much. In person she seems to have fun and really like me, but other than that she seems to almost hate me.

She is just being protective towards herself.
She do not want to be so lovey dovey or joyful over texts when she does not know how you feel about her - as that possibly could pulls you away from her.
If she knows you are interested too, possibly she sets the boundary that way until you show more.
And girls like the boys to initiate first, so maybe you shouldn't wait for her text - just text whenever you want to, after all you guys are best friend!
Also be careful if she is occupied with dating other guys as well - not to be seen as bad, but if she don't get good response from you, she possibly thinks she shouldn't wait. When she is occupied, that could lead to short, emotionless text - as she is entertaining other guys.
But still could be many reasons to that. My advice is for you to show that you do like her too so that she feels comfortable talking to you. :)1
