How do I build my friendship?
over the summer, we would text a bit, but I would always start a conversation, and he would just say things like "k..." or "yeah... sure" and yeah. When we got back to school, he never really talked to me, and when I did he would look at me like I was crazy all confused like. He never saw me as a friend, but I did. Eventually, as in a month ago I showed him that he can appreciate me by talking all smart like to him even though I had no idea what I was saying. Even to this day, he kind of treats me like his little kid. Right now we aren't talking, and I am not sure why and If I offended him in some way. He is really cool and he likes theatre and music and he is really nice, but he is also a genius. He is the smartest person I have met yet. His emotions are very interesting and he is not afraid to let them show. So what I really want to know is how to get him to like me more... one time he called us brothers and that made me feel very good. So how can we build up our friendship so that we can communicate and be closer emotionally as if we were brothers.
