SMS stands for Short Message Service. It was used for the first time on 3 December 1992, when Neil Papworth, a 22-year-old test engineer for SEMA in the UK used a personal computer to send the message, "Merry Christmas." Since then, texting has become an integral part of human life.

Our texts can give clues about the nature of friendships, our habits, our love interests, and the places we frequent. Relationships are not determined by texting, but text messages can still be indicators of the level of interest two people have in each other.

Texting and Relationships

Texting can be a great, low key way to engage with someone you've got your eyes on. If you're needing some clarity in what's happening in a suspicious exchange of texts, look no further. This hub is here to help you sort out whether he leans more toward liking you.... or maybe something else.

Texting can be as revealing as body language. Here are some handy things to check in your text messages to garner a better idea of whether he just wants you for your body, if he genuinely likes you, or is just having some fun.

Have you ever felt like you could tell someone liked you through texting?

Subject: What Does He Text?

The first things you should ask when you get a text message: What is this guy saying? Why is he saying it?

Random Positive Messages

Lighthearted texts about anything and everything are always good, because they mean that this guy is looking for an excuse to get in touch. Here are some signs of positive, lighthearted messages you might receive from a guy who likes you.

  1. The conversations do not focus on everyday matters, but instead on humorous things that are inside jokes. Is there a consistent thread that refers back to a significant moment?
  2. He uses a pet name or nickname for you. He uses the same one consistently.
  3. Positivity is important. If you're bored enough, put your messages on an Excel sheet and decipher how many are positive to you vs. how many seem negative... or neutral.
  4. Notice if he always responds. Many people opt out of texting after awhile if it doesn't seem pertinent anymore. Our busy lives tend to take precedent over texts. Bonus points: he politely says when he has to leave a conversation.
  5. He sends you a text about a dream that he had... about you.
  6. He sends you random song lyrics.
  7. He sends you a joke.
  8. He comments on something extremely minuscule to see if you noticed too.
  9. He might refer to nostalgia, such as bringing up Pokémon, Final Fantasy, a Disney movie, etc.
  10. He doesn't refer to your hot friends. If he is referring to a hot friend of yours a lot, he may want help getting connected with her.
  11. His texts are not all business or school focused.
  12. He may send you a message to let you know something has reminded him of you.
  13. He sends you pictures to make you laugh -- like animals, things from movies, his shoes.

Serious Stuff

If a guy is talking to you about important or personal issues in his life, he clearly both values your opinion and trusts you enough that he can be honest and even emotional around you. Then again -- he could just be really weird. Take everything with a grain of salt. ;)

If a guy you like wants to have a serious conversation, even over text, that's a sign that he probably does like you or care about your opinions.

And if he is saying outright that he likes you or values your relationship, well, that's even better.

  1. Beware of sexting. It's a better sign if, instead of sexting, he texts you as though he respects you. If he sexts you, he may easily be doing this with others. And he could be sharing information or pictures that you send with his friends, so take caution. My own rule of thumb is if you wouldn't your grandmother to see it, then you probably don't want the whole Internet to see it -- send photos wisely.
  2. He uses positive affirmations rather than bringing you down. Does he compliment you for being punctual, friendly, patient, etc.? This might not mean he is head over heels for you, but he at least has a soft spot for you. (Aladdin complimented Jasmine on her punctuality.)
  3. He refers to something from a long time ago. Whatever it was... it's stuck with him.
  4. He says things like, "Thank you" or "I appreciate this." He says this often.
  5. He give unsolicited compliments on your looks, personality, brains, talents, etc.
  6. He says, "I miss you."
  7. He offers to help pay for something for you.
  8. If you need his assistance, he doesn't delay to offer help. He may immediately come to your rescue.
  9. He handles it well if you send him something completely strange.
  10. He overall seems to enjoy hearing from you and may even in person say that he likes having conversations with you. Could there be a greater sign then that?
  11. He lets you know of positive things that have happened in his life, whether over text or not, such as doing well on a test, a promotion, or having a new pet.
  12. His texts usually brighten your day.
  13. He may talk about personal details such as family, a job problem, etc.

Formatting and Length

After all, there’s more to texting than words. What about emoticons? What about length? This section will help you decipher your text message beyond the obvious...

Questions

Questions in a text message are a good sign because that means he is trying to continue the conversation. You've probably done this too: formatted a text in the form of a question, or adding a question at the end so that there's more guarantee of a response.

If he sends you questions, that's probably what he's doing: he want to hear from you. Here are some possible questions you might receive in a text from a guy who likes you.

  1. He asks you to hangout or do something. This could include: grabbing something to eat, going on a bike ride, going to the movies.
  2. He says things along the lines of, "Let me know if there's anything I can help with." Guys are programmed to fix things; it's a delicate part of their DNA. If you can figure out what he can fix and have him do it, you'll be able to create a connection.
  3. He asks if he may have accidentally spotted you, just to start a conversation. I got a call once that asked if I had stepped into a gray van in another state. Obviously, we both knew that was unlikely.
  4. He asks, "How are you?"
  5. He is concerned about your wellbeing and what you are doing with your life.
  6. He may ask for your help on something that he is not particularly skilled at handling. This is a great sign because it means he respects and trusts you.
  7. He might ask about some guy that he has seen you with (whether directly or indirectly).
  8. He does not refer to other girls. OR he asks your advice about them.
  9. He asks for something back that you may have borrowed: a book, movie, etc. He probably wants an excuse to chat about it with you. And to setup a time where he can see you.

Drunk texting means he probably likes you.
Drunk texting means he probably likes you.

Formatting

Here are some clues that might not seem obvious to you at first. Punctuation, length, even grammar can all be clues as to what your guy is thinking and how he feels about you.

  1. If he texts you back and engages in conversation this is positive, even if his messages are short with one or two words.
  2. He uses "Hahahaha." Or another text to indicate that he finds something funny.
  3. Exclamation marks! The more of them the higher likelihood he digs you. Also, guys don't use exclamation marks as much as girls. So if he is using them -- he probably means them.
  4. He contacts you in other forms whether phone calls, Facebook, in person, emails, letters, smoke signals, etc. My Facebook back-to-back feed with one guy in particular has YouTube videos, "likes" on statuses, little inside jokes here and there, and sometimes even conversations on other people's profiles. This can be a pretty fun way to maintain contact, if done right.
  5. He sends you texts frequently. Is he sending you texts everyday? Once a week? Once a year?
  6. He isn't playing mind games and has no problem sending two or more messages at once,
    rather than sending one at a time and waiting for your response. He's eager to talk to you and wants to make certain that you are informed.
  7. He uses proper grammar.
  8. He sends you a picture that reminds him of you.
  9. He refrains from using plain ole' "k."
  10. He refrains from using "LOL." It's weak, sister. REAL WEAK.
  11. He is comfortable with writing you a long text message that breaks into six sections. Not necessarily often, but he would do it.
  12. He avoids curse words or foul language. OR... he uses a lot of language... not all guys are the same.
  13. He texts you when he is clearly drunk.
  14. He may send a text in all caps with just your name and exclamation marks.

Timing: When Does He Text?

Sometimes the timing of a text contains more clues than a text itself. Here are some tips on deciphering the timing and frequency of messages.

Making arrangements to see you is always a good sign.
Making arrangements to see you is always a good sign.

Timing

This is a classic way to tell if someone likes you. If a guy you like texts you all the time, even if the messages don't seem to have much content, that's a big deal. And if he texts you during important moments in his life, or when he needs help, that's also a big deal. Here are some good signs related to timing.

  1. After seeing you he sends you a message that he had a good time. This is a polite affirmation of the time you spent together. This actually makes my day when anyone does this.
  2. He might not instantly text you back (we all have busy lives) but if he does seem to respond quickly, this is positive. If it takes him more than twenty four hours without reason, that is suspicious, but don't jump to conclusions. If he never answers at all that's almost always a bad sign. You could possibly have the wrong number or he changed his number. I will say though that one summer I texted a friend randomly when I thought of him and didn't know that he was on a giant road trip across the country without his phone. When he got back into town we met up later to discuss his whole trip. So at the end of the day... if you feel like texting, just do it.
  3. He texts you during the day rather than at night. 12:00AM-6:00AM is unusual, and more than likely a booty call.
  4. The two of you text one another more than you text others.
  5. He texts when you've just gotten back from a long trip, perhaps overseas where you don't have service.
  6. He attempts to get in touch between 9:00AM-5:00PM to make arrangements to see you. These are hours that show respect on his part.
  7. He sends you a long text about how wonderful you are when he knows you've had a terrible day.
  8. The conversation can go back and forth for hours, regardless of how many texts.
  9. He may consistently text you on a certain day of the week or hour as he may have figured out you were free at that time.
  10. He respects your time and doesn't eat it all up with texting. It's the right amount of speed for you.
  11. He isn't known for being a player and texting lots of girls.

Questions & Answers

  • If he texts me every day and is very funny and sometimes teases me, what does this mean?

    If anything it means he thinks of you in a positive way. Some guys are naturally funny, and they often like to tease the opposite sex. Is he making sure you in particular laugh, or is he trying to get a crowd to laugh? Is he playfully teasing or is he being mean? It's easier to tell if someone likes you by looking at the specifics, time of day, and how consistent they do these things. And consistency is king when it comes to flirting.

  • If he texts me everyday what does it mean?

    Consistency is king. If someone texts you every day, that means they think positively of you. Consistency is one of the biggest factors in being able to tell if someone likes you. They may be looking for an opportunity for a date.

  • What if we text each other every day? What does that mean?

    You have a healthy connection with each other. Keep talking and see where it goes.

  • If he sends me a "<3" at the end of a text, what does that mean?

    He probably likes you, is interested in you, or highly attracted to you.

  • What does it mean if he sits next to me?

    Literally, that could mean anything. In life, we are constantly sitting by people. Now, is he always making a point to sit by you? Is there anything else happening that makes you think he likes you?

      I'm really into a guy when i was studying abroad. I tried any ways in order to get his information or facebook account. Since studying abroad, I've never talk to him. But now, I have his facebook account. I tried to text him first, he did reply fast all of my texts, but he always end up the conversation with "hahahah"and "Ahh ok". He also texted me back by " Hahah ok"almost all the time. What does that mean?? Is he really into me? Or he just wants to be polite by responding my message by short text??

      A guy that I’ve noticed looking at me has said it was alright for me to get his number. So I started texting him, he says he’s not a phone person but sometimes doesn’t responds to my text. I’ve asked a few times if I was bothering him and he replies No, it’s ok. He also says that he’s not ready to hang out with someone yet. He’s recently divorced and so am I, but he often sends me pic of him and his kids. He also has opened up to me about some personal matters. He hasn’t made any flirty comments unlike myself. I’m so confused, is he interested or not?

      Do you know what his reasons were for having a break? Ask him if he still wants to be on a break. And what will change if you are no longer on a break.

      So he always calls me baby or other names like sweet, cute and adorable using exclamation marks. Whenever he feels I am upset he offers to help me, or he will let me text him at night till I sleep... we text everyday, but Idk if he is crushing or just being an overly nice friend.

      So I met him where I work at, he’s a costumer who comes once a month (exaggeration) before we started talking, one day he gave me his number and I never texted him thinking he’s just a player but then he keeps showing up to my work place and started flirting, he finally got my number and immediately started calling me “baby” both on text and on person. He sends messages like “I miss you” and comes to my work place and says the same thing. He does take long to respond, but every morning I get a “good morning baby” messages and a little talk then he doesn’t respond until the afternoon or night time when I’m off but when I have work he texts me how work is and comes around and still texts me while he’s standing in the front. Does he likes me (he did asked me on a date but I’m not sure if he’s really interested on me) or am I just wasting my time?

      I have had and denied having this crush on a guy since middle school. He and I became good friends when I reached out to him through social media. Whenever we talk, I usually start the convo. He responds to my replies as soon as I sent them. Recently I told him I miss him, not expecting anythin' in return. He said, "I miss you too."

      Any thoughts?

      It sounds like he is a friend. Is he attempting to pay for your drinks, movies, or dinner? This sounds like a nice guy to have as a friend. You may want to find a way to ask questions about his girlfriend, let him steer that conversation -- that will give you some clarity as to what is going on.

      Andrea Lawrence

      People have the right to answer and take to their text messages in any fashion that they want. Just because he is spending a lot of time on social media does not correlate to how much time and how quickly he is responding to you.

      The key here is how consistent and frequently is he talking directly to you. If he is talking to you daily, this is a good sign.

      People have lots of things they are doing, often cultivating a social profile is different than a text conversation.

      Try getting to a point in your text conversation where the two of you can see each other in person.

      A guy from work

      We work at different stores for the same company therefore never actually work together. We met at the work christmas party and really hit it off have loads in common, easy flowing conversation.

      Since then we have texted everyday and met up from time to time for drinks, cinema, dinner, etc.

      However!

      He has a girlfriend. He has never talked about her to me, but I know that he is in a relationship.

      His messages to me are always consistent, funny, slightly flirty, he asks lots of questions, makes lots of compliments, and makes plans to see me often. I think he likes me, but obviously has a girlfriend so I'm not sure!

      I met this guy in college and I could tell he was really interested in me. So after the semester ended I sent him a message. I didn’t hear anything for over 2 days so I assumed he wasn’t interested. But then he responded and said sorry and that he just now seen the message. (I am not sure I believe this since he made a post on his account the day before). Anyway, that night we texted quite a bit and things were good. We were asking each other questions and the conversation was flowing. The next day he messaged me about 4 times throughout the day. The day after he only sent one message and the day after that he didn’t say anything at all. Yesterday he sent one message which leads me to today.

      The thing is I don’t expect him to text me everyday or anything I understand we both have lives. I am just confused when I can see that he has been on social media but will take 12-24+ hours to respond. With that being said, his replies are always engaging, and he asks questions, uses emojis and exclamation marks.

      Looking at the messages he seems interested, but looking at how long it takes I feel like he might just be trying to be polite. I feel like I am getting mixed signals and I don’t want to bother him if he isn’t interested. What do you think?

      Fishy, yes. I think you should keep in contact with him and keep it light and cool. Keep looking for a way to make your schedules match. Try a few more times to see if he'll commit to an in-person meet. Then let it fizzle out if he never tries or keeps getting flaky.

      This is so true about the consistency. But I'm so confused.

      A guy I been texting for a couple of months now. We met twice, had a great time. We spent a lot of texts finding out a lot of common interests about each other.

      After the videos, pictures of things he would send of romantic songs, flirting and suggesting places to go. There would be times he was cool with me, calling me 'mate'. I thought it a bit strange

      He lets me know of being very busy in the week and free on the weekends. I suggest a place to go, he is all for it but then goes silent about it and kind of disappears. Yet we still text and sends me things and wants my opinion. Is he genuinely busy or just being hot and cold?

      I'm slightly afraid of being direct about this because I don't want to ruin the positive vibe.

      Hi

      I have been talking to this guy for about two months now. We talk a lot but most of the time, I am the one who starts the conversation. I met him on tinder and we have never met face to face before. The last time I tried to hang out with him, he was not able to make it because he had to see his parents. When I text him sometimes, he does not reply immediately but apologizes for the late reply. When he is not busy with work or school, we can talk for hours. I really like him a lot but I don't know if he feels the same. The texts he sends sometimes makes me think that he does, other times it doesn't. I would like to know if he does.

      he's my childhood friend, we used to play together when i am at his house. and it's been 9-10 since we saw each other and chatting face to face. it's not normal to set with a man in our culture. from one year i saw his snapchat account on his twitter and i was confused if i should add him or not then i decided to add he and he knows me even if i don't take selfies and he said because he saw my father when i snapped him and he told me about our memories. he asked me if i will join our family gathering or not for couples of time. he saw me accidentally when i snapped and after a while a saw him in an event but i was acting that i didn't see him. after i left the event he said that he saw me and i told him as well. one day he told me why i am not visiting his family house and he asked me to do it and i asked why didn't he come to my house. he loves my mom a lot and he respects her and when i went to his house he wasn't their and when i left he said that he is sad because he didn't see my mom. he forgot my birthday but i didn't forget his birthday and i didn't say happy birthday for him but i tried to show it. it feels weird how i care about him. last weekend he me joke and he said that i am a kid. I am 19 and he is 23. we 're not calling each other, just texting.

      Hi author,

      I have been texting with this guy for few weeks now and he has feeling over me and I also have the same. We both like each other but he wants to be in relationship with me. Problem is, he lives in another country and he is 2 years younger than me. Before he lied about where he was actually from which made me to trust him less. He text me everyday whenever he gets time and I do the same. I told him that I do like him but love and like has difference and that we sud give time to each other before jumping into this virtual relationship. We both share pics of ourselves and our surroundings, we sometimes do video calls on messenger.

      When I told asked him to let’s slow down a bit, he wants to end this relationship. I really like him but m having trust issues over him. Pls suggest me wat does this whole thing mean? he says, he will always Love me and now he breaks up with me.

      I have been talking to this guy for about a week now and he does some of the things you mentioned but not all of them. He apologizes whenever he replies late. We mostly talk about random things. Does that mean he likes me?

      This guy and I met on an app, talked consistently for a few days before he smoothly gave me his number and now we text and it is still consistent and usually initiated anytime before 4 pm. He uses ! marks frequently, emojis and text faces somewhat frequently, cares about how I am/feel and says that he is glad I haven't gotten sick of him yet haha

      Though we live a decent ways away from each other, he says we would get along and we talk about multiple things ranging from silly to serious and thought provoking yet still easy to text for hours on end. He calls me a friend and while I'm more than happy with remaining friends, I am simply curious on whether or not he is interested in me so I can let him know somehow about how I feel about just remaining friends although maybe those feelings might change someday. What are your thoughts on this?

      This guy acted like he felt neutral about me when hes been texting me over a few years that I worked with in the same office. At times he seemed to like me like when he would open up. He would joke with me and seemed like he cared. We played online games, and really bonded but he always played it cool so I never was sure if he liked me back. when it came time to be honest in person one lunch alone, he actually said "IF things really dont work out with your boyfriend, we can figure out something. But we have to play it by year. I want to take it slow."

      I know now your all booing probably lol but when you catch feelings you tell your guy- get to know the other guy. Honestly life is too short. if your bf is too stubborn to leave against your will thats his problem.

      unsure 

      9 months ago

      Even after reading this list I'm really unsure if he likes me or we are just friends. I don't think he's interested in me like that but the texting evidence leads to that conclusion. We text everyday, never about the anything particularly important, he usually texts first, uses lots of emojis, lots of teasing and banter + inside jokes. I'm so confused and I'm not of sure if I'm into him like that...

      His friends says that he likes me a lot and on summer holidays we were in touch and he did exactly what you said. I hope he doesn't share with me because I don't know how I would react to it since I almost exploded when my friend got asked on a date. I have once had a crush on him but I got over him but I still blush when i say his name. I think I also have ADHD because I find it I think my mum said that at the doctors and my friend says that I have it. I looked on a site and it says people with ADHD find it hard to get a relationship so I will just have to see what happens.

      Thanks for letting me share,

      Your viewer,

      Okay, you guys have only been talking for a very short while, and you added a ton of drama in that short span of time. I think your first priority is to chill out or you are going to push this guy away before you even realize what kind of person he is. Going on about a broken heart after 2-3 weeks of dating is really intense. Be chill, cool, and confident -- stop rushing things.

      He wants to keep things going, that's why he texted you. Yes, he likes you. But don't make a big deal about things. You are in the early stages where one of the big priorities is having fun. If it doesn't seem to be fun, he'll probably move on.

      Hello! I've been texting this guy for 2 weeks. Sometimes I was the one who iniates in asking questions about life, work etc... Sometimes he's response are long, sometimes short. But he immediately responds to my questions if he has time everyday. He told me that his sorry if he's response to my questions are short coz his lazy to text long messages and he hopes that I understand. What does this means? Does he see me only as a friend or his not interested at all?

      Another thing is because of language barrier. He lives in another continent. But he tries to respond to my questions in english.

      A group you call brothers and sisters? This sounds... kind of weird, to be honest. Why use those words? Since you are a married woman, you may want to address your marriage first before considering another option. He might be seeing you as more of a friend, considering he tells you about his rejection... and that he calls you a sister. That's not really a romantic word.

      I'm a married woman. I know this guy who's 9 years my jnr and we hang out with this group whom we call brothers and sisters.

      Somehow we hit off very well and he texts me daily throughout the day with breaks on bet but for sure first thing in the morning before he goes to work and always after work n we can text all night.

      He shows a lot of concern for me and will always want to sit beside me when we hang out with the group.

      But he told me about a lady he liked and also that he got rejected.

      We go out occasionally alone. Everytime we get much closer and more personal he'll address as 'sister'

      So I need advise even if the truth hurts. A guy and I have been friends for 3 1/2 years and I texted him randomly this week. The texts from him had a lot of the things you posted... but we were definitely flirting. Just as it was about to blow into more, he abruptly (feels like it to me) stopped texting me. After a week, he hasn't texted me back at all. I don't know what's going on through his head and I'm definitely not going to blow up his phone. A text with SOMETHING would've been better than nothing.

      Don't jump to conclusions. The two of them may just be friends. I don't think someone would tell you a person they are seeing likes you and try to be encouraging about that. This would conflict with their own goals if they had interest in the same person.

      Work on confidence here so you can send the right vibe. Make sure you trust your friend. Try reaching out to this guy more. Think of creative ways you can interact with him.

      I think everything is going to be okay. Give a moment to breathe. With that much talking between the two of you, he probably deep down expected this. I doubt it is a complete surprise to him, but maybe if it has been a long time since he's been single he somehow could be tone deaf here.

      I don't think you damaged the relationship at all. I doubt he would hate you, especially for sharing your feelings. I think it was a good thing that you put yourself out there, it is usually better to say those things in person or through a phone call rather than text. Then you can read facial cues or voice cues.

      If his wife left him in a bad emotional state, he may need therapy before getting into a relationship. He probably needs to build his self confidence up again, and get his feet wet. When you are emotionally low it can give you low faith in yourself and the world around you -- bad news is this lack of faith can lead to destructive behavior.

      He may honestly not be ready for a serious relationship, and that's not on you. You haven't done anything wrong. Leave him alone for about a week, then send him something that is friendly, warm, and possibly funny. Do that to break the ice a little and bring some positivity here. He might not give you a real response after that, but you'll get the wheels turning again to at least be conversating comfortably. He may take some time to process this, and that's okay. Some people know instantly what to do... others take months. (Most people are more sooner than later when it comes to this.) So be patient, don't worry that he hates you, and you are never too old for texting.

      So yes, give it a week. Then start friendly texting again. Don't approach the elephant in the room. He is aware. That's all you need to do at this point. ;) Let him know the option is open, get it off your chest, and then let whatever happens... happen. And you are in that last stage there.

      I am pretty sure you guys will at the very least be friends here. That's a good place to be.

      A couple of months ago a male friend and I started texting. Just random things at first, then more personal things about our lives. We are both in our 40s. He is divorced and I am legally separated. We both considered it a friendship at first, but our texts became more personal and at times casually flirty. We have talked on the phone twice for hours, but never gotten together to do anything, even just as friends, though we talk about doing so. He is a really really great guy. But his ex wife damaged him emotionally very deeply, so he considers himself completely damaged goods. I have recently developed feelings for him stronger than that of friendship. And because of our ages, rather than just ignore them, I felt it was only fair to tell him how I was feeling, through text of course. I told him I understood if he hated me now and never wanted to hear from me again. He responded by saying first of all he could never hate me, and that he very much enjoyed talking to me, and asked me to give him some time to process and respond to my text. It's been 2 days and no reaponse. I am so anxious now, feeling like I've completely ruined what was a great friendship. Should I just leave him alone now? Or go ahead and text him and ask what he's thinking? I'm too old for a texting relationship!

      First I posted with the username anonymous111 but I decided to create an account so it would be easier to access later on.

      So I met this guy at my cousins party, I didn't talk to him that day. But the next day since we had a little family get together again, basically an after party, I saw him again we didn't talk at all.

      But then later about 2 hours before I left, I talked to him nervously, and he kind of talked with few words.

      Then I asked him if he had Snapchat, he said no. Then I said if he had Instagram he said yeah so he gave it to me. But then he asked for my name on Facebook, I told him my name and everything, he added me and after I left I shakes his hand when I said goodbye.

      Then in the car I texted him hey and he replied with a Hey!

      Since the we been talking, it's been a week since we started talking. There's been two conversations that I've told him, Everytime I talk to him he makes me smile. He said that it makes him happy that his making someone smile.

      Then I told him that I taught I was boring too talk too, he then said no you always have something to say. And his always using emojis that are smiling and blushy face. His older than me by 2 years. Even if we leave a conversation at night we continue it the next day. Sometimes he falls asleep and tells me sorry if I didn't answer I fell asleep. I tell him no problem that Im usually sleep, but I won't be to just have an excuse to talk to him.

      I don't of his into me or not. But we've been playing 21 questions and I've learned a lot about him and his learned a lot about me, I found a lot of things we have in common.

      And recently he started liking my posts.

      There was one that said Everytime I talk to you I fall in love with your smile, so I said on the post before I posted it, or your eyes and the way you are. And he liked it.

      Please let me know if he likes before I get the wrong idea of him liking me. I got 30 things he does from this post.

      Sounds like he is interested and wants to see where it goes. He found the way you guys met intriguing, so he wants to see if that quirky connection would be like that in person. You piqued his interest and it seemed natural rather than forced.

      Okay, so. I'm sure he likes me, but I wanna make sure.

      So there's this popular guy at my school, right? Well, I got his number through prank calling. And my phone saved his number, so I left it at that, and didn't bother with it for a while. Until I was texting a friend named Hayden, about, well personal shit. I sent the message "Hey, dude, are thing better with your mom?" and apparently it was the wrong one. It was the popular kid. So he sent me the message "Lol, wrong number homie" and so I apologized multiple times, for being dumb and he just said "Its fine who are you btw" and I replied back with "Im Jasmine." and he replied with "Ok" and I left it at that, cause it would be creepy to send him anything else.

      Well a month later, I got a new message from him, (I thought he deleted my number, but I guess not)

      He was like, "Are you friends with Alyssa?" and after that we started talking from that, acting buddy on buddy, and let me say he was replying immediately, laughing at ever little story I told, and after a while, he said "pic?" and I was like "I don't feel comfortable.. my self esteem.. is not that high." and he replied back with "Don't worry, i'll give you esteem" and then he sent me a funny picture of himself, (i could tell he was shirt less because all it showed his shoulders with no sleeves expect bare skin), and then I sent a picture of myself, and he just said "oh yeah, ive seen you at school" and I agreed, and ended the conversation there. And then suddenly out of nowhere, he sent a message saying wyd, and started it up again. I talked to him more after that, and then I told him I really wanted to meet him for being so chill and he was "Sure. Yeah! Of course." and he seemed really up to it, and after that we talked so naturally to each other. But im not sure if hes being really nice or what?

      He might not be reading that you're interested in him. Sounds like he really enjoys you, mostly for friendship. I think you should be straight with him and ask him how he would feel if you took it romantic. That'll stop your own anxiety, you'll get an answer, and some direction here. If he is as good as a friend as you describe, he'll still be in the picture. You'll feel better if you stand up to your feelings. And having this conversation we only strengthen the two of you.

      So, there is this guy I know. We did a class together and later on we became friends. Over the ending of our class, that's when we really first started to talk to each, then over the ending of the summer we really connected and we'd talk daily. But I still can't figure him out. We once went on a group hang out, just three of us. I thought he liked my other friend, but that day he was always next to me, always only really talking to me and stuff. Then for the rest of the summer and the months that followed, we would speak every day. Sometimes he'd get strangely mean towards me. Then other times, he'd either share things about his past, share random lyrics from songs, even a few times he drunk texted me after being out with 'groupies' lol. Fast forward to now, we still talk pretty much everyday, he's never said to me verbatim that he's interested, so it's just sometimes what he does makes me wonder if he is, or not. I noticed he started saying good morning more often too and he says he really enjoys talking to me and our conversations are fun, he's complimented me before saying I am talented and such, but what throws me for a loop is that he now as of late seeks my advice on girls he's 'interested' in, or just people he think it could possibly work with. And then he insists on sometimes telling me about his dating ventures. How, in a case like that would I narrow down if he's interested in me or not? Especially since he's never said it.

      Hello everyone, i believe you are well and gearing up for the only the only day that has been dedicated to people who are in love. The 14th day of every February month is when we turn to our loved ones and shower them with gifts and praises just to show how great full we are that they are in our lives. I have decided to dedicate this year’s valentine day to the unsung heroes in lives and in my case it’s my MOTHER. I cannot help but wonder how these beautiful beings hold it together. Every time i look back and think of what can go wrong when you are young, am amazed beyond word at how mothers end up making us who we are at the end. Imagine the most powerful man in the world, the president of the United States was also once a baby hey! Am sure most of you and even himself cannot bring himself to think that right now. He had a mother who tended to his every need. It is for this small but important reason my friends that i for one will dedicate this year’s Valentine’s Day to my unsung hero my mother. May you be rewarded for everything little thing that you did for me MOTHER.

      It sounds like you two are just getting to know each other. And wouldn't put too much pressure on it or overthink it. Try hanging out with him, and if it seems good to you, keep at it. I think you have your own uncertainties to deal with first. I can't tell at this point if he is interested in you more than a friend.

      I been talking to this guy for almost a month.

      We exchanged numbers for academic purpose, but now been constantly texting each other. Hes in 2 of my classes, during which we exchange pleasant greetings. He notices when I walk in ( or maybe I look for him when I walk in).Past week he and his friends waited for me after class too, but I find it bit difficult to talk him face to face so I often say "I'm gonna get going'' and go off on my own. Yes we text, mainly because that's where I feel comfortable. I like him. He is a very jovial guy, friendly with everyone, which is why I can't understand his cues ( Is he like that with everyone?). We once talked about the vibes we send off and I told he seems bit flirty, to which he felt offended I assume, he justified saying he isn't a flirt, he just like to make people smile and hes very loyal and would never hurt anyone's feeling. He called me the reserved and the "family type" .

      I tried to take dig and asked " why are we talking so much" for it hes like " why aren't you having fun as well" . We been sharing our expectations of life partners, how we both wanted to get into a relationship . He even shared the name he wants to name his daughter lol. During our convo I said I enjoyed cooking and I wanted to feed my future husband well and he said " lucky guy, I hope I find a girl like that". Don't know what that meant. I been indirect with him saying he will meet "his girl soon" . I am trying to hold off bit, because I don't want to get hurt... Does he like me?

      Sorry for this long message, this comment could be confusing as my thoughts right now lol....so any feedback will be appreciated.

      Yeah definitely! I have a question.. so we haven't skyped or talked on the phone yet. Do I let him initiate that? It's only been 2 weeks so far. I know it's still early but my girl brain is like.. errrr just wait for him to say something about it? We did ask each other if we like to talk to the phone, we were mutual and left it at that. Also, thank you so much your advice again. I hope it works out with this person and will see where it goes.

      Sounds like things are going on the right track! I read recently that those first few dates are about having fun and figuring things out with our uncertainties. So I guess the most important thing right now is... start a fun, positive connection and see where it goes.

      Sorry. I forgot to mention that I live in Houston and he lives in Chicago. Thank you so much for your advice and thoughts! I will definitely keep that in mind. I'm at the phase where I'm getting to know him. We are actually meeting in gulf shore Alabama for a music festival in a couple of weeks so hopefully it works out.

      Thanks again!

      I think he is definitely interested. I would for sure keep the conversation going if you are interested. Maybe going to Chicago currently is too soon since you guys just met... I don't know what the distance is between you and him. I would keep texting, maybe also include Skype and Facetime. It sounds like you hit it off really well.

      Keep chatting and get to know him before traveling to meet him, especially if it requires a plane ticket. I think continuing the conversation will help you to figure out whether you trust him or getting out of uncertainty. Or if it's even something you really want.

      Long story short, I met this guy at a friend's wedding and there was an after party. We talked the whole night, drank shots together and he has initiated the text the whole time with positive messages. The only thing is he lives in Chicago, since then we've been texting. It's only been a week but I think this guy likes me? He keeps saying how he'll cook home made tacos for me when I come to Chicago or taking me to a beautiful scenic route.

      I mean.. if this guy wasn't interested, he would of left straight to Chicago without texting me/asking for my number.

      What are your thoughts?

      I wouldn't worry too much. High school relationships are very young... and generally don't pan out. Focus more on yourself at this point.

      High school boys don't usually talk a whole lot. Some people are not super interested in Facebook.

      If he is being nice / sweet to you on Facebook, that is a good sign. Look for how he communicates in person and not just through messages. That will be key.

      So... there's this guy I message, we've known each for a while now. We are in a relationship but .. he doesn't seem to be messaging me back often.. we are in high school btw but he lives in a different state so I don't know what he's doing. He doesn't tell me why he doesn't respond .. he's also not on fb alot, maybe he's busy with school? But when he is on , he's very sweet and tells me how much he loves me and all. But I don't know if his words are true.. I know it's bad to doubt, but I really want to know if they are true and what he is doing in his life that is so busy..

      I hope that things will get better. Sometimes they boomerang and come right back to you, so don't be surprised if that happens. I'd say go live your life to the fullest... and inevitably you'll find someone.

      I am sorry too, we have been friends for 30 years and together for the last 4 years. I really enjoyed our conversations and togetherness. I had better talks with him than I ever did with my ex husband. It hurts, I think I lost an old time friend. I have cut him off... :(

      So it's been 3 weeks since I last heard from him. As he usually gets in touch when he gets back from business or vacation. This time not a single word, so I guess like you say "he is just a weasel".

      If this is what he has chosen, He could of just spoke up.

      If he is happy, I am happy for him.

      Brit: Just tell him no need to impress , just to be himself.
