Even if he doesn’t initiate texts (he responds fast though)
We don't initiate unless we feel confident that you like us... it's a defense mechanism. Once we feel more confident in reciprocated feelings, we start initiating texts.
by the way I wrote down below what he did. Tell me if he was trying to attention or not xD. I was on the bus. I stood up and was about to get off the bus when the bus arrived at the bus stop that I was suppose to get off. My crush was on the other hand getting on the bus. When he saw me from the window (i was back of the bus) he turned around and came to stand next to the door that I was coming out of. I walked right past him. Then he again changed the door that he would get on the bus ( He was walking behind me). Then he eventually went in from the door that he initially was heading to lol.
Get attention? I don't know. Make sure you saw him? Yes absolutely. You 2 seem to be playing this game of who makes the first move. He's not going to based on what I'm reading. You'll need to.
You think he’s interested if he’s doing all that?
Yes I do. I also think he's a bit immature if he's not saying anything to you... but that's my opinion.
He’s actually guy in his late 20s, maybe he’s too afraid to actually talk to me?
Could be fear, could be social anxiety, could be something else. Is he conversational when he's not with/around you? Do you know?
Tbh he’s kinda shy but he has many guy friends and is not that shy with them. One time he talked to me irl and he was nervous.
Could be that women intimidate him, or something similar. It could be a deal breaker for any relationship unless he gets professional help. He relies on text, maybe that's where he feels safest and that's where he'll remain. You can DM me if you want to get into it deeper, or continue.
Even on texts he doesn’t really initiate! So should I keep messaging him?
If it were me... knowing only what you have told me... no. I wouldn't. If you're doing all the work, then what are you getting out of it? Someone once said, if I have to chase you or fight for your attention, I will eventually lose interest. You're doing all of the work, including trying to figure him out... for what reason?
Tbh he’s texted me first 3 times I have 3 times so we’re even but the last two times I’ve initiated. I really like him.
Then ask him out. If he's not interested he'll tell you.

Have you experienced this same thing with a shy guy? :)
Yes but he soon overcomes it. I am outgoing though. xx
Did the shy guy initiated more texts eventually when u texted him more?
When we First were Online, Yes, He did. Problem later after Getting together with Him, He woud go off to Alexandria Egypt and not Tell Me... Once was because he thought I was Cheating and I think another was because he was just being Carefree. I finally later Dumped him because of That Bad habit. Quiet guys be careful. xx
