so theres this guy. i like him and weve been texting for a while. He always texted me in the summer and stuff. and then this year we both came to the high school (the two middle schools combine, and we went to different middle schools) and so then whenever i see him in the halls, i give him a smile and he looks away. but after school we would always text. one day i asked him why he does that, he didnt respond. then i said it doesnt seem like you want to be friends. then i told my friend who gave me advice all the time because they were friends in camp. he said to try texting him and if he doesnt respond to ask him whats wrong that he kept doing that. so i did that and he never responded. so ive stopped trying to text him and now i always look away from him when i see him at school.
what else should i do? i really like him besides all of this.

Wow a knot of miscommunication via no-communication, been here oh too many times. It seems that ethir your friend is extremely shy when face-to-face or there is something more going on in relation to yall previous conversations.
Ethirway distance might be best for now and a simple hi every now and again will do. Hopefully he'll open up eventually.

There's a high chance he's shy. If you really like him drop the texting and walk up to him and talk to him about it (then he has to respond). If he does in fact try to escape on multiple occasions, I recommend leaving him. There's no way for a relationship to start or grow if one of the people doesn't communicate.

Well, I'm not amazing at these types of things. I'm not exactly a relationship "guru", but being a teensge guy, I might be able to help out. At least in my experiences, turning away and not talking means he's quite into you. He's just... well, that makes it hard to talk to you. Because he really kind of wants to say something, but when you know you really fancy someone, it's just kind of hard to make day-to-day small talk. I hope this helps!

I've been in this position on both sides and all I can say is that whether you like the person or like the person, if you guys dont share common friends it makes it hard to talk. Without meaning to, you think about what your friends would think and that affects you. But pushing this won't help either. It's a little annoying to have someone chasing you. I'd say let it sit for a while with simple hellos in the hallway. Make him know you aren't chasing him, but you are'nt pushing him away either.

thanks you guys, so i asked his friends and they all said he is shy. and so i havent texted him for a while and i saw him at a club today and it was alittle awkward because we didnt acknlodge each other but we both kept on glancing at each other, or i guess i was glancing at him. but afterwards a little later i texted him and he responded so i guess its all good now.
