I've been talking to this guy for a few weeks and he's only texted me first once, maybe twice. I'm pretty sure he likes me at least somewhat, because he asked me out (although a time/date was never set), and he always flirts and compliments me and stuff. He always replies when I text him, and even seems happy to do so. He's not always fast to reply, but he's busy working, and I'm busy too, so it works out, but it kind of bothers me that I always have to initiate. I haven't texted in three days to see if he says anything, but he hasn't yet. Should I keep waiting a few more days or just text him?

I tend to do the same, probably because if I inititate a chat, it's almost implied for her to respond, and I don't wanna expect that of her, especially when she's often busy or occupied. But I love getting one from her, though sometimes I don't see it for an hour or two. I'll try to respond even if I'm busy as hell.
I think it's probably a more common guy thing too. When I txt or message buddies, I don't expect anything: maybe they're there, maybe they're gone for a week. No sweat. But when there's any kind of relationship going on, to me, there's more commitment for each to respond as quickly as possible, or it's a disrespect.
So I guess I too initiate txts or IM's with guys more than girlfriends, and I too absolutely love receiving them from my girlfriend. Hope that helps from one guy's opinion.
