So my guy friend always seems to shut me out when he's depressed or upset. Like he'll randomly send me a text but then when I say "whats wrong" or "what happened" he just say "nevermind" and tries changing the subject... me being worried/confused try and get him to tell me what's up but he just replies with "its fine" "i don't wanna go into it" or "i just can't say"... WHICH DRIVES ME MENTAL! Because I can tell he wants to tell me (cause otherwise he wouldn't have bought it up it you in the first place) but then doesn't, I kept asking and then he just stops relying =/ ... just wondering if all guys do this and why?

Just because he tells you about it doesn't have to mean that he wants to talk about it. It can also be because he wants you to understand if he behaves a little odd.
Many guys don't want to talk about things. Because just talking usually don't solve the problem and most guys only ask for advice or ask for help if it can help them solve the issue. They usually don't talk just for the sake of talking about it like many women can do.
What he probably is trying to communicate to you is that he is not feeling to good and he needs some space. That is why he goes quiet when you keep asking him to talk about it.2
