    Nothing, just wait it out. If they're interested they'll get back to you eventually.

    If you chase a cat that doesn't like you what does it do? It runs.

    How long does he take to get back to you? Minutes? Hours? Days?
    How long are the conversations? One line? Minutes? Hours?
    How much interest does he show?
    Does he compliment, double text, ask about you, reveal things about himself, actually make some sort of effort? Text randomly? Does he flirt?

    If you do none of these things as well he probably thinks the same about you.

    Maybe he just doesn't have anything to say? Speaking as a guy, sometimes I can carry conversation for hours and othertimes I struggle to think of anything, when that happens I usually just back off or something :lol: depends how busy I am etc, too many factors to consider really, but I think you can tell when someone is interested, I usually can anyway.

    but the thing is i don't even want him to be interested like no big deal but why isn't the convo flowing naturally like I'm trying to be a good friend but he's not into making friends??

    If it's just as a friend what does it matter? "hey, how are you? having a good week?" would be fine
    Nah this type of thing is bait and too clingy, no one in the normal world under the age of 25 will think you're chill if you message someone asking how their week is. Come on. Lets use our social skills.

    If you message 'Hi, how is your week going '
    They will respond with (most of the time) 'fine thanks you'
    Then you can either talk about yourself or say 'fine too'

    congrats on establishing yourself as a) boring af and b) a cling mf

    1) Always message with a purpose. If you have something to say then your first line will come naturally. For example, If you want to meet up; 'Hey, are you going out tonight, we're having pre drinks at mine', 'Have you checked out the knew ... film, man'. If you are just inquiring as to how they're doing it only works if its specific. E.g. 'Dude, that test is going to suck so hard tomorrow, you done much work for it?'

    2) I cannot stress how much you need to leave the cheese behind

    3) Stop bothering the person unless you want something or have something to say

    Blah Blah stop being silly
