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 article 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 a while 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 want 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 gives 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 than 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 wants 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 hang out 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 set up 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 the 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 every day? 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

  • 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 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.

  • 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 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?

      So this guy who’s my current friend, said we was going to bed and I told him i’ll he up for a while. After about 20 minutes, he said he never went to sleep, and I just knew and he asked “how?” I said it was either because you needed a break from texting or me. And then.. he said “neither, I like both” and the after a minute of me sitting there flustered and confused he said “in a friendly way”

      This guy said that he was gonna watch this movie just because I liked it a lot. He even apologized the next day cause he hadn’t watched it. Then today he said he was watching the second movie, and that it reminded him of me, so he texted me. The text first started with “Abby!!!!!”

      Hey if this guy knows ur in a relationship and ignores the fact that you are in one. When ur with your boyfriend he tends to ignore him and only talks to you about things what does that mean? And if this guy works in an office and tells you to wait for his office manager but leaves alone for like 5 minutes then comes and checks on you and wants to talk to you about your personal life what does that mean? He calls me by my nickname and smiles really big when he is with me or sees me. He also says bye to me if he at his desk and then i go to leave what does that mean?? He txts me back when he sees i ask him about movies and things.

      One night, I went to two house parties and this guy that I like has been texting me the whole night. He knew I was out, having fun and he was at a basketball team party as well. I texted him that I already got home, but he pleaded all night that I should drive him home. I know for a fact that a lot of his friends can drive him. I even offered him a taxi and my friend who was with me, to drive him home. Instead, he kinda got mad when I talked to him on the phone numerous times and even after those calls he still pleaded that I drive him home. He also suggested that I should sneak out of the house just to get him a ride. We agreed that I should drive him the next day, early in the morning. Then I went on stalker mode to see what he's up to. He was having fun. I don't know if that was just an excuse to see me that night, but it felt like it was. Every day he'd text me if I'm coming to school or not and he would skip class if I didn't come. Mind you that he has a girlfriend and sometimes I'm kinda slow on flirting cues but he's a really touchy person. I can't ignore him cuz I actually like him and our families are close too. I am so lost.

      1997..more than 20yrs, ago,when i was 16yrs.old i met this guy who's 22yrs older than me.that time i already had a crush on him,which i tried not to be noticed.but one day he left.no one knows where he went.but my hope hasn't died that we might see each other one day,and i told myself if that day comes,i will confess to him doesn't matter where it will lead to as long as i can burst out the long kept secret feelings.

      2003,i received a letter coming from him for the first.i can't handle my emotions that time,as i 'm so excited to open the letter.at first it tickles me,thrills me the way he conveys to me and yet there were still a sweet words that maybe for him was just a polite words to say to someone like me but as for me it added to my feelings for him.but on the second paragraph it seems like a knife! he told me that he's already married.it left me wounded,truly,but life must go on.that was the last communication we had not until..

      2011..i looked for him on facebook,i found and sent him a friend request,he accepted and we chatted for a while.then no news about him again..but even though we don't have a proper communication,i'm still looking for a way that i can greet him on his birthday doesn't matter if he receive it or not.i just making myself satisfied by doing that.

      2012..later part,we have communication again,this time i told him that i'm getting married the next year and even invited him(but still he doesn't know my hidden feeling for him before).then,no communication again..

      2017..fast forward..October,i received a friend request from someone whom i never expected,it's him.at first i'm hesitant to accept because the physical features changed but after i looked carefully,i accepted him.this time our chats went from casual,to slightly deep until we became addicted to each others chat.and i thought that it's fine to confess my feelings before for him since we now both married,to make it short we becomes now a constant chat mate.he sends me a thoughtful,caring,and sweet words.day and night.and i also send him back.

      now what does it means..is he just doing that thing because he knew already what my feelings before and he just reciprocated it for owing someone's feelings or he just plainly likes me now??i know he tried to spend time with me even just a minute.

      please help me enlighten,i know it's not worth since we are both now married to someone else.i really just wanted to know.

      thank you so much

      I have been seeing a man for 3 years. He text me everyday and sees me about every 2 weeks. We are great friends and talk about spending the rest of our lives with one another. And how reply in Love we are. He always text he “I miss you”. We have the most amazing connection. However, he went back to his family because of the kids. It’s a long story. Kids are almost grown. He made a promise to his kids he wouldn’t leave again. Long story! Anyway. Do I wait? He wants me too? Do I believe he will leave her? Maybe in a year they ReKindle? He tells me there is Nothing between them. He loves her but he’s not In Love with her. Should I believe this guy? Or maybe I was the rebound chick? The ongoing 3 years of his undying love for me. We have this amazing connection. I believe it’s real. But have my doubts. Help Men. Do you go back because of kids even when u really aren’t necessarily in Love with wife? They have had numerous issues and sleeps on couch most nights. But they still sleep in bed. It’s just not a physical marriage.

      So I'm a guy and I went to this to see if somebody was gay for me, and I looked at comments, but I need to say something: Guys should be allowed to talk to girls! Most of my friends are female so I should be allowed to text them. I can text somebody without being interested in them. I mean like 80 percent of my close friends are girls so who am I supposed to text? Seriously guys can be friends with girls and not like them. Use your brain! No I'm not gay I'm straight. I also went to this to make sure I'm not sending the wrong signs to people. Btw I don't like somebody and most of these signs are things I do but I like somebody else. Maybe I'm just different from other guys, having my first friend's be girls, and growing up around girls. Hope some people are intelligent and agree with me.

      Hello there. I have a friend and he always initiates our conversations. Usually we start with "Heya" and "Heyo" then he asks "How are you doing". By reflex I always ask him back, them we would go to a different topic after. When it seems the conversation is about to break, he asks "What'cha doing?" if he still hasn't asked it, and by reflex I ask him back. Though they're just little texts, we somehow go from one topic to another. He also texts me almost everyday, the longest inteval we've had is 1 or 2 days.

      I don't really know if he likes me or is simply like that.

      Their is this guy I met a couple of months ago and we are good friends now. Well he's a sophomore in college and ever since he's left he literally texts me like 3 to even 4 times a week!!! One time a tornado touched down where I was at and he heard about it and I didn't have my phone with me and he texted me twice wondering if I was inside or not and I didnt text back in like 6 minutes and he went crazy. He said If you not answering me is funny...I'm not amused. So obviously it shows he cares he also has said ok whatever makes you happy which shows even more that my happiness is important to him Last month he invited me to go somewhere for his birthday and it's in May!! He invited me in September to go to party that's like many months away?!?! He's even planned things to do with me when I see him again and has asked when my birthday was? Out of suspicion I asked why and he said no reason with a emoji face with sunglasses. I think he's up to something but I don't know what. I like this guy alot and I keep getting on/off signs from him. My friends and family are kinda frustrated bc he does so many obvious things but he won't actually come out and tell me that he likes me!! Every time we go out he steps in and pays for me...not to mention he gave me a guitar before he left for college. What are your thoughts on this exactly? I need help..

      So im confused about this guy. I like him for 3 years back when i was 11-13 years old. It took me so long to get over him and after I tried to move on. I moved out and became inactive in the church for 5 years. so within those 5 years, we had never interact with each other nor had seen each other. so nothing between us. After 5 years, I decided to come back to the church because of difficulties that I had experience. Now coming back to the church, his sister told me that he became inactive after a year later when I got out of the church. I wasn't really surprised because I have him in fb and I do notice he been doing things that is not church related. Anyways, his sister decided to hook us up together. 2 weeks later, he texted me and asked me to go to statefair with him to be his date along with his two to other guy friends that had their dates. After statefair, many cute and cool things happened between us. Now, during statefair. He did told me upfront that he has these other girls that are texting him but say he is only talking to them as friends. But to me is that if he find interest in me than don't talk to other girls. When he say that to me, I just told him that "I understand that you are single and handsome so I know there will be a lot of girls that want to get to know you and will text you. Is okay. I understand" But deep inside it killed my mood. So now I don't know what we are. please help, I need help on what kind of situation Im in...

Been talking for many months now daily more or less.. We've never met in person only sent face pics and such, so just wish I knew what he meant really even if it's long distance I really like him alot.

      We text about work all of the time, even though we no longer work in the same place. When we happened to see each other in a work function not too long after we moved departments, he wanted to make sure that I texted him updates about my (professional, I am assuming) life (that was the last thing he said when he walked away, like "I almost forgot, don't forget" body language). I often start the convo. When he knows that I have a bad day, he often reminds me of my talents, etc. When we first started texting, we texted once or twice a week; now, almost every single day and late at night after work hours. We have not talked about personal life all that much because I wanted to keep this trend going; we do have mutual former co-worker/friends that we posted updates about and I purposely frame texts into questions and he often replies yes (or something similar) to give me the go-ahead to explain something (very polite). He is very open to dropping everything since we no longer work together. He is starting to open up with his chance of advancement or a career move. I know that he has a GF (and he always is in a relationship) and is about 15 years apart in age from me, so I think he might be friendly. Signs of anything? Could he just look up to me? People who we used to work with would say to me that he won't let anyone badmouth me (but he could be that protective over his friends - which I know he does text, but not as often we do each other).

      I've been texting this guy for awhile and we recently started ft. After we ft he always says that he liked talking to me and hopes that we could do it tomorrow. When we ft we'll joke around, laugh and talk about serious stuff. The other day he mentioned that he wanted a gf and he said the qualifications for one and then he said like me. And he's always offering to help me and asks if i'm not busy so we can ft.He compliments me sometimes after i do and when i don't.He also asked me to go see a movie with him but he said just as friends. But idk if he likes me as more than a friend or just a friend.

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?

      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?

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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'

      What do you think

      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.
