I would respond to any kind of text including super boring ones if I'm interested in that person either in a platonic way or romantic way so I'm just curious. I asked this guy if he's interested in hanging out with me (as a FRIEND) and he didn'r respond. He just got a new job and is pretty busy but he usually does respond to my text (I sometimes double text). We just met about a month ago and I just wanted to know him better and now I'm a bit upset now because I expected I'd at least get some response. just fyi he asked me for my number first.
