I was hesitant at first to message him but decided to a few days later. He responded to me a week later and then I messaged him back right away, but he never responded to me again. I saw that he read my message though.
I went through his instagram and noticed he is actually a really busy person and it looks like he travels for work and had to travel last week, but I can see his activity status and that he is active on Instagram quite a bit. It also looks like he is single from his Instagram posts.
Is he just not interested in me or is he busy? It took him a week to respond the first time so maybe he is just super busy? I think he's cute and would really like to get to know him, but I don't want to be the one to pursue him. I'd rather wait and see if he'll respond and if not then I guess forget about it.
But just wondering if he could still be interested?

1-2 weeks? Almost certainly not interested, but it is possible if I had a death in the family or something similar, if I nearly died or am in the hospital, lost my phone, my phone died, lost my contacts etc. You need to understand that when a guy really likes a girl he always finds time to talk to her, even when he cannot actually spend time with her. I doubt he is very intererested. The fact that you wouldn't give him your number is likely the main reason. 95% of the time when a girl declines to give a phone number and gives out social media instead, this is the girl's polite way to decline and still maybe be friends. Sounds like he took what you did as a rejection (like most polite guys would) and thinks you only want to be friends with him. He is not going to respond super quick or often or put a huge effort into a conversayion for someone who he thinks friendzoned him. Doesn't mean he hates you, just means he wants to spend his freetime making plans with people and getting to girls he wants to date. If you seem like neither of those things, he is not going to talk to you much.

Okay, first off, there's absolutely nothing wrong with girls pursuing guys. So if you like him, don't hold back and wait for him. Make moves! What if he's shy? Then he'll never do it. Especially dince you had to initiate conversation upon your first meet.
Second, to attempt to answer your question, a week is an awful long time... I mean, if he waited a week to initiate conversation, thst'd be understandable and I'd have suggested the idea that he was nervous to talk to you and I'd have used personal experience to back it.
But it was YOU who initiated conversation, so I don't think it should have taken him a week to respond, especially if he left you on read.
So from that standpoint, I'm sorry to say, but unfortunately to me it seems that he is not interested in you...
