    While that does make sense, it is also 10x easier to be fake via text (so be wary young one). I was giving him the benefit of the doubt that he wasn't a total douche bag, but hey...I could be wrong.

I think I'm just going to keep talking to him to see what happens. Like you said, anything romantic/more than a fling is probably out of the question, but he's an interesting person and it would be nice to continue to talk to him/be around him. Thanks again for your response :)
    I doubt he ever cared at all. Texting you but ignoring you in person doesn't strike me as a loving relationship.

    He said "how much he cared about me." I sent back a question mark, and he replied "lots".
    Remember that some guys will say that just to get in your pants, it's a pretty old trick. "Love" at 16 / 17 doesn't require much more than that.

    As others have said, if you want a fling, go for it, but it'll never be more than that.

    Hm, yeah. I always got the sense that he was very genuine, and the sense that he wouldn't have put any effort whatsoever in if he wasn't interested, but there's a very good chance that's just my wishful thinking interfering with my perception. If I actually understood him I obviously wouldn't be posting about this :P So chances are you're probably right. Haha, thanks for the honesty :)

    This be the time my friend... This be the time. Lol.

    Man... It sounds so... bold and the beautiful meets 90210. Or just 9128363497827263928--

    Anywho! (Forgive me?) As a fellow ENFP, I would suggest as the wise ISTPs have stated and don't plunge in too deep with this one. Stick to being friends. I understand how you feel with the on off thing. We find it hard to let go and we always keep wondering with our "what ifs" and "what did I dos?", but hon, I think you should keep this as a friendship until you see and really feel like you can be you with this guy. It's not worth losing the essence that becomes you for the awkward shell you hide in when you struggle to keep things 'going'. We like interesting people, (oh yes we do!) but it won't be as interesting after a while if it gets too strenous a deal to communicate with this dude.

    With all due respect to the ISTPs out there -salutes- You guys are freaking awesome! You can drive your motorcycles off the roof of my mother's car any day! (long story with an ISTP cousin... XD)

    If my mother asks, I wasn't here. -poofs- *0*
