ok, heres my situation:
i met this guy like 6 months ago when he approached me randomly and invited me to hang out with him and his friends. After a while of hanging out with him and becoming really good friends with everyone, i started liking him romantically.
I sort of started complimenting him a little bit, being more affectionate, and it seemed like he was responding in kind? He ensists on walking with me between my classes (he waits outside the door to suprise me), hes explicitly stated how much he enjoys my company, says he thinks we are super similar, etc.
after a little of that, i invited him out for ice cream and we had a great time, we both had a ton of fun, felt like we had good chemistry.
few weeks later i invited him to a rodeo and we also had a great time.
its been a while since that and while i still see him once or twice a week when we're hanging out with the rest of the group or when he greets me outside my classes, but never invites me to anything? I felt like i was being too needy always being the one to ask him to things, especially being the girl, but after i stopped asking and constantly initiating text conversations they dried up.
Ive even given him things to invite me to or come w me to things like "hey im going to this concert by myself this weekend, tickets are going to sell out soon haha". but unless i explicitly ask him "do you want to do this thing with me" he wont ask to do it on his own.
he still texts me in the evenings every couple weeks and we talk for two or three hours each time, but idk
Is he only interested in me as a friend? or does he just not like me at all and is just to polite to turn me down when i ask directly?
I kind of assumed that he felt more than that based on the aformentioned things hes said to me, but the fact that i stopped always texting first and being the one to ask him to things and he basically stopped talking immidiately makes me feel like he just felt obligated to be nice to me
