This new guy made it obvious he was interested in me. He gave me compliments, seemed to enjoy texting, hinted at a potential hangout, and looked at me in a way that made it clear he liked me. Now, he still stares from across the room, smiles if I smile at him, but he does not text me. He didn’t ghost on me thankfully. I do remember one day when he said he’d talk to me later, and I said u 2. When he didn’t text me, I didn’t want to text him. I was confused. The next time I saw him in person, we talked and it was nice. We said we would text each other again and he said “hopefully this time” (with a smile). That day, we did text and it was fun once again. I ended the conversation first since it was getting late and he replied. Then I gave his message a thumbs up. From that day, which was the beginning of last week, he just stares at me in class from a distance. He hasn’t texted me, but he did talk to me once after class (2 days ago) and smiled today when I smiled at him. I think* I seem interested in him from the outside, but maybe he thinks I’m not since I haven’t complimented him. I don't know. He seems like a genuinely nice guy, but he is very handsome, stylish, and athletic, so maybe he’s used to girls complimenting him when they’re interested, so I seem uninterested? I don't know. Guys who like girls to text first? Why? Is he just not a texter? What do you think is going through his mind right now?
