Friend often ignores my texts and calls

We are both guys. Whenever he texts me I usually respond back as soon as I see it. I always got my phone with me so I text him back quickly.
But whenever I text him, I have to wait quite a while for a response. I'm not talking just a few hours either. Sometimes I have to wait a full 24 hours to get a response to my "hey". A few times he didn't respond back to me in three days. What kind of bullshit is this? Another thing, if I start texting him with anything other than a greeting I will straight up get no response. I could show him a picture, no response. I could ask him a question, no response. He is super standoffish with texting but we are really close in real life. It makes absolutely no sense. Can anyone make sense of this?

I only call him like once a month. I'll call him, he won't pick up, I'll try calling a few hours later, he doesn't pick up. So he ignores my calls too

This is what I do when I'm trying to end a friendship without completely burning any bridges.

But we hang out in real life and always have a good time. He lives far away from me so it's not like we just run into each other.

Well I'll admit I'm kinda like your friend, I often ignore txt messages. I only respond to important ones.

I just don't like texting. Face to face communication is teh shit.

The part about ignoring calls is a little worrying tho.

Well, two days ago I said "hey". He responded back with "hey" yesterday. I asked him if he wanted to come by my house and chill this weekend and he said "maybe" and then a minute later said "or you can come here" implying I could come to his house. So today I text him at 10AM, no reply. I call him at 11:30. And then I called him again at 2:30. He didn't pick up either time and hasn't responded to my text yet. What's his deal?

I have those exact behaviours, ive been depressed and find a debilitating level of anxiety whenever the phone calls

perhaps he has those problems
because folks tend to like me in person and we get along just fine but i dont respond to texts and barely answer calls unless i know thenumber and its for something like regarding my tenancy or something.
>>
yo wtf OP I have the same problem with my friend

SAME

like we chill irl and everything is alright but he treats me like some bitch he's trynna fuck playing hard to get and all that when we communicate over text/facebook

Imma go to his house today and ask him why he does that so I might offer you the response of why some people do that, if he tells me

Cuddle with him after so there's no hard feelings.

>>16583263
alright (;

>>16583245
I highly doubt thats the case lol
>>16583254
He just lies to me and tells me that he must've been "busy" but I know its a fucking lie. You're so busy that you can't reply to a text until three days later. Right.

He texts like a girl who I'm trying to bang: terse, not often, and not long.

I found out from his mom (lol) that he didn't even mention it to her.

I've straight up told this guy that ignoring my texts makes me feel like shit and he continues doing it

Take a hint. He doesn't want to be your friend for whatever reason.

Well then it sounds like he's not interested in you anymore. Call me bitter but in my experience most "friends" only interact with you when it suits them, and as soon as they get something new to distract themselves (gf, other friends) they'll go off and do that.

Alternatively, can you think of anything you may have said or done to piss him off? Just because he acts nice irl doesn't mean that's what he's really thinking.

Finally, he might be developing some sort of anxiety and is finding it difficult to talk to anyone, let alone you.

Personally I'm so over sitting and messaging my friends over skype/texts/whatever about nothing important, I just find it frustrating as hell that I can't watch a movie or read a book or work in the shop without getting constantly disturbed by some bored asshole who's too lazy to just come over.
Why do people wanna text anyways when it's approx. 10 times faster to communicate using your speech? just call up, say what you want, we talk a little and we're done, 5 minutes tops. That way I don't have to think about constantly coming up with witty banter stretched out over 3 hours, which is just plain frustrating.

You guys are saying that he's not interested in me as a person, but it's not really making sense to me. He still invites me over to his place, I sleep over and we have a great time smoking weed, drinking etc. If he wanted to break off the friendship, then he wouldn't just stop texting me, he'd stop seeing me irl. Its not like I run into him on the street, we live way too far apart for that to happen. Why would he spend time with me when he's trying to break out the friendship? If he was trying to let me go as a friend, then why does he still invite me to do stuff with him?
