Why does he flirt one minute and practically ignore me the next?

This guy and I have been flirting for a long time. We'll have a series of flirty texts or emails, and then when I see him in person (especially if we are with a group of people) he'll walk into the room and barely make eye contact with me. He eventually recognizes that I'm there and he'll be nice, but no direct eye contact. What's up? I get all excited to see him and when he does this I feel almost defeated. Is he playing hard to get, is he trying to gauge my reaction? He's a friend, so I doubt he's messing with my head just for the heck of it. He is NOT a shy person, so that's not it.

It's the fact that boys say whatever they want over text and are complete cowards in person. I've had guys be so flirty with me over text, and in school they're like shy little boys I've hardly ever talked to. I always kind of hint at boys when they do that, I don't say: "why are you flirting with me over text and then act cowardly in person?" But I kind of nudge at them like: "Umm ok" never say anything to a boy you'd be embarrassed to say to their face.

He doesn't actually like you. From how you describe it, he's just playing you.

He's either playing you or he doesn't want his friends to notice he might like you.

He may not be a shy person but if he does like you he may be shy around you. Over text he can't see you and therefore you cant see him but face to face is different.

you could text him and be like how come we barely talk in person but over texts we talk all the talk all the time. if he does not text back hes not wroth it hes just using you so you should probably break it off and look for a new guy.! hope all goes well. good luck!!
