Do guys play hard to get by text messages?

I was just wondering because there's this guy I text he always texts me back fast like within a minute and what he says is like he's interested doesn't use like one word yes/no answers or if he does uses smileys at the end we talk for 2-3 hours he ends it nearly all the time. But other times he won't text back and ignores it he's done it twice. Is he playing hard to get? Or he's not interested? Or he's trying to keep me thinking? Or what?

I'm so confused

And he knows I like him I have to text him first.

Should I text him again?

  • man, I can kinda see why you'd be confused. I hate this too. here's a thought, why don't you try giving him a call sometime instead of just a text? do you talk to him in any other way other than texting? have you met him or hung out with him? I'm only asking because if you're trying to figure out if he's interested in you, it's not gonna happen through texts.

    so you've already noticed the times he doesn't reply and the times he does reply, now what you could do is only text him when you know he's going to answer, that way you won't have to worry when he doesnt, see? and who knows maybe you can text him in the evening and casually ask him "so what do you do all day?" or "what do you do during break?"

    and you say he never texts first, I feel your pain! lol when a guy pursues a girl it most likely means he's interested, but when the girl is constantly pursuing the guy he might have the tendency to run for the hills. I don't know they like a little chase, and I gotta say we girls do too (just not as much as them, it gets annoying! hah)

    so let him know you do like talking to him but also let him know that you can do just fine if he doesn't text you. wait for him to text you even if it's a couple days, that way he'll be like "hey, she hasn't text me lately, wonder what's she's up to" =o

    • Thanks your advice sounds really good :) he only doesn't reply at school

  • You make it very hard to read your post. Use some punctuation & stop using the "like" word.

    • Oh I didn't realise I used the like word that much

    • Show All
    • Don't sweat it then. He is on break between classes and wants to brag about you to his friends and show you off then he gets back to you after school :)

    • Ok thanks. But he never texts first

  • maybe he likes you but he feels like its not the right time

    for the relationship to start just give him sometime then text back

    "hey I didn't talk to you in so long"

  • You're getting worked up over text messages? Are you serious? Just call him or hang out.
