    I used to be really good friends with this boy, like I genuinely saw him as being a really good friend but now he only texts me when he wants to know gossip. It's like he wants to hear the bad stuff going on in my life and gloat about all the good stuff happening to him. I find this really weird considering he's a guy and I'm a girl? I don't get why he cares so much and comes across as competitive? Can anyone explain? I've stopped replying, but I don't know whether to actually say something to him?

    Thanks

    You don't know why he does this, but expect strangers to know.

    The logic is mind blowing.

    Maybe he's just awkward at chatting to girls, and maybe likes you.. but doesn't know how to show it properly.

    Many examples of this such as guys insulting girls too much, being too touchy etc, cuz they don't know how to act around girls they like.

    Just a thought :rolleyes:
