I have known a guy for a few years, we joke around and get along very well. He has always told me and mutual friend how he likes me, wants to take me out and blah blah. I never took him seriously because he flirts with every girl. I always liked him back so I decided to try because besides the flirting he is a sweet guy.
We exchanged numbers and he finally called after four days. We talked and its clear there is something between us. Everything seemed to be going well then he starts acting bizarre. He never answers his phone when I call him, If he calls me now he always hangs up before I can even swipe the answer key on the phone. I don't bother to call him back anymore.
Yet at school he ALWAYS hangs around me, joking around flirting and being touchy feely. He's mentioned us going on a date and I agreed, but he never made anything official. I've mentioned us meeting outside of school and he doesn't respond. I don't want to be desperate and have to ask him. He makes our mutual friends and other people think something is going on between but honestly nothing is going on, he acts weird which makes me keep my distance from him.
I got tired of the way he acts with me so I started ignoring him. If he really liked me he wouldn't act the way he does. It makes me feel like I'm some toy to him. He does nothing just keeps staring at me, walking around with a sad face. Its annoying how our friends will ask him what's going on (because I'm ignoring him) and he'll say "I think she's mad at me...", "I don't know what's going on...", "Oh, well...". Then one of our friends tries to mend the situation.
I'm tired of trying and him rejecting but acting like I'm to blame. I really like him but he's making me hate him. I don't even like when he touches me now. If he really likes me why is he acting so indifferent?

I don't see it as rejection at all. He may just keep his emotions on a very short leash. And some guys (like me) don't chase women. It is kind of a defense mechanism. There are guys that waste all sorts of time chasing women that only have marginal or no attraction to them. A woman that has a decent level of attraction to you will show it by making her presence known and taking some risks. In time, once he sees you are really attracted to him, he will slowly start giving you more attention. But I wouldn't expect him to ever chase. So don't expect that to change. And remember the old saying, Still waters run deep.0
