I went out with a guy once, but we will be apart for a while so we're texting each other to keep in touch and maybe slowly getting to know each other as well. Due to work and time difference we don't really get to text that much, but still it's hard finding something good to talk about.
Lately, or the last few messages, I've been feeling like I'm the only one asking questions, so naturally the conversation reaches a dead-end... this only happened twice, but it's like whenever I give up and just make some comment which doesn't even need a reply from him anymore ( the perfect chance for him to run away from a boring conversation, right? No need of being polite) he manages to find a reply to that and asks me something else! That means the ball is again in my court and the conversation keeps going because I wouldn't ignore a question!
I don't understand why he would do that since he was the one who seemingly didn't wanna talk with me anymore? It's so confusing.
I should add that we're having regular conversations, no flirting texts and stuff like that.
Did you ever feel obliged to continue a conversation with someone like this?
Like I said 2 days ago, he asked my opinion on something that I actually understand pretty well. As this is texting, I tried to keep it short and funny and asked about other stuff of his. A day later, he basically replies that he thinks it will be a good experience for him either way and a smiley. No answer to my questions.
Tbh, I don't know what he wants. Why ask if my opinion isn't valid and you intend to end the convo anyway?
It leaves me with 3 choices I guess:
1. I just ignore it and don't reply at all
2. I reply acknowledging his text, but very shortly, almost just polite
3. I continue trying to make conversation.
I'm obviously torn between one and 2, but help me getting a different pov? I just don't get why he keeps on texting, but maybe just for a social contact?
