Why would someone text me first and not carry the conversation?

Anonymous
For context: there is a guy who I started talking to first and we had great conversations in the beginning, it felt like it was equally carried. Then he stopped carrying the conversation so I stopped initiating with him, but now every few days he will say "hi" and carry the conversation on with emojis. He tries to flirt with me by saying "you missed me?", "I want you" and "be careful you might fall for me". He even asked me if I was seeing our mutual friend and said if I was dating him he would of stopped messaging me

What is he trying to do?
