    Do guys never text a girl first or will they sometimes text her when they're friends?

    I have a guy friend who always replies to my text messages and will even continue the convo with questions when texting which is great but he will never text first to initiate the conversation. I wouldn't mind this but I'm not sure if he's only replying to my text messages as to not be rude or if he genuinely wants to reply and have a convo.

    I haven't text him in a week to see if he would start a convo but he hasn't :/ I'm not sure if I should text him again or just leave it but I genuinely like him (as a friend) and really don't want to lose that friendship but I don't know what to say. He told me his favorite club before so I was going to ask him if he wanted to go with me and a few friends but I don't know how to ask. Is it strange for a girl to ask a guy to go clubbing with her?

    Fact is, if he texted you first then you'd lose interest.

    This question would probably work if all guys were the same.

    So guys generally never text first? So if I text him again he won't think I'm annoying? Or will he 'lose interest' if I text first?

    I understand not everyone is the same but I'm just trying to get a general idea of what guys think

    My best friend is like this. I call him out on it all the time jokily and he apologies for not getting in contact. He says he's like this with all his other friends not just me. I've learned not to take it to heart because I know he is a genuine guy. I'm sure if someone doesn't want to talk to me they just won't make the effort to even respond to my messages.

    I typically only reply to texts. If I really need something then I'll either text first or phone call. Anyone in my life knows that that's just the way I am and not intended to cause offense. I will always reply back.

    If I'm in a relationship or care deeply enough for someone or just really curious about something... or simply feel that I can help, then I'll try to make an effort to call or message that someone occasionally.
