I started talking to this guy in one of my classes, and he asked me out for a date a couple weeks ago. After that our communication sort of stalled, and I figured he wasn't interested anymore. But then we studied together for an exam, and I think it went well. He texted me a bit afterwards. Now, however, our conversation is short again, and it seems we're about on square one again.
I'm not looking for a relationship right now, but I do want to get to know him more and be friends. I think he would be fine with that, but I'm wondering if that would not be the right approach. (I am somewhat interested, but am not actively seeking a relationship. I would prefer to get to know him more casually before dating anymore.)
Part of the issue I think is that he's really busy, and I'm really shy. So I haven't initiated anything with him. It all comes from him. So he doesn't have the time to constantly try to do things with me or talk to me frequently, which I usually rely on to become friends with people. I'm guessing he might think that I'm not interested at all.
I know this seems a bit confusing and unorganized (which it is) but I'm basically just trying to figure out how to maintain a relationship with this guy who I might want to go out with again, but I'm also not sure if he's still interested. He may have given up on me by now.
I was thinking of getting some people to go see a movie and inviting him along. Do you think that's a good idea?
