So you think he wouldn’t have replied back to me within 10 minutes three times after I’ve texted him first if he wasn’t interested?
Most likely not. Just check for common interests, topics to talk/write about or plan some activities together. Hard to tell how strong his commitment is only by texting unless you want to play games as I described in my answer.
If you was In his shoes would that indicate interest if you responded within 10 min to a girl’s message and that has happened more than once?
Yes. But on the other hand, if a girl is good-looking, there is no reason not to be interested. Even if in a relationship... some men do have plan-Bs, you know. Males are simple: stay on good terms with as many girls as you can handle...Try to actually commit some of his time. If he spends an entire afternoon with you and then another... that would be a good indicator, because he has opportunity costs (e. g. cannot date other girls while with you). Just texting is a weak indicator. If you are nice and pretty (and 99% of women below the age of 40 are pretty enough for most males, trust me) any mentally healthy hetero man will be interested enough to text/talk with you. When it comes to actually selecting a partner you need to check for actual commitment.Also reply times need not mean a lot. When I am busy working my phone is silent and I do not notice texts. If I do not reply for three hours I am not being rude, I just cannot affort too much distraction in my line of work. On the other hand if I am idle and relaxing (just as now), I will reply virtually instantly to anything. Even if the person texting me is a guy I do not like, I do not have anything better to do and have to reply eventually, so better get it done.A good indicator is the length of the text (takes time to write longer texts), if he double hits on you when initiating conversation (as described in my original reply) and sometimes a lot of emoticons, although I would not give too much about the latter.

The times I've initiated texts he’s responded within 10minutes. The thing is we talk rarely.
How fast he responds dont matter just shows he has his phone at the time and dont care to seem interested
What do u mean by don’t care to seem interested? So u think he is interested?
I said that in my first message to some degree clearly he is interested but I dont know how much
I don't know he rarely messages me first so I don't know.
We’ve talked very little so far lol...
Why do u think so?
Because he responded pretty fast. If he wasn't interested then he wouldn't reply that quickly.
So boredness doesn't explain that he’s responded to me quickly three times xD?
The problem is he doesn't really text me first. What should I do?
Just ask him why he doesn't, and make sure he knows how much you would like it.
You think shyness or fear of rejection prevents him from texting first?
Thats always possible, but ask him.
