    I've been seeing one younger guy on a weekly basis since Valentine's, sonetimes twice a week early on and lastly for rhe weekend 2 thursdays ago.

    So I got butt dialed by him 2 nights ago and he was like "did you call or did I call you? Then was like "oh, I'll text you"

    Me: ok cya

    Then I got a pretty general vague response to what I heartedly texted him about earlier, being called a fag walking on campus.

    I agreed with his vague response saying
    "I don't understand either, would've been nice to talk"

    He tells me he can call me tomorrow. To my surprise he did call me right after his work. We chatted for 45 mins which some may say was too long but he vented about his work frustrations and I asked asked him about his history on getting his scars shich led into his sone of his relationship history/ideals.

    I was appreciative of him calling just like he was appreciative of me listening to him

    Last night after the phone call he sends me a genuine reply thanking me for listening to him talk about his "baggage"

    After work today I may have wanted to connect and send a signal I was aporeciefor him calling like he said he would.

    " it was nice talkin' to you last night icon_smile.gif"

    >Yeah!!! (1.5 hours later, he uses alot of exclamation marks regularly )

    That's like me responding to sonething one of you guys genuinely texts me with
    "Yeah"

    Or maybe it isn,t, getting a reply like this could mean anything including... I'm not interested in texting you right now, I agree, or I'm not that into you but my guilty conscience makes me feel obligated to respond to you.

    So I figure unless I get more input from other guys or him I can either
    1. Let it sit, end of conversation (difficult because I don't feel that confident to reinitiate again after beingshort texted
    2. Reply with "Yeah!" Because that's me trying to say I didn't want a meaningless reply from soneone who says "I love texting" to something I really meant

    We do have plans to do sonething next thursday because he said he had to schedule working on his normal days off this thurs/fri so he do some "family stuff" on the weekend.

    Yeah this is what happens when you only have one boy to text/talk to at a time and you deleted your dating/hookup apps because you felt thet are a crutch from meeting people in real life.

    That was not a one word response. That was a one LETTER response. Completely different. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Obviously, you're over-analyzing

    I'd like to think at the end of the day, there is no meaning to it but no, it could mean that they aren't that interested back but are just being polite. But the way your guy responded, it doesn't seem to be that. Maybe he means and just didn't know what to say at the time.

    Yes it is! and then he texts me at 1 am saying his car broke and the new computer system at work is crazy so he is so done(as in everything sucks right now).

    So when I call him to talk about it the next day, the conversation is decent considering I'm nervous to be talking to him. He says near the end "see you soon?"

    So that's super confusing

    And luckily I discovered turning off all text notifications feels really good and liberating. For now I'm done reading your text unless some actual business causes me to open up the texting app.

    I could see how someone would be shocked that you're 30 and asking questions like this.icon_idea.gif

    It's quite difficult to judge from the side. But in my opinion he is just not mentally open for it right now - as you are saying is he always working and having trouble with it. Are you the one who always trys to start a conversation or is it mutual? If it's mutual then as I said, he is just busy but he still tries. If he is not even trying then he is probably not that into you..

    Because us lowly people are aspiring to become the gay PUA that you most certainly are.
