I really need advice on something. I like this person, but I don't know or think that they like me in return. They used to go to my college and we never really spoke back then but a few months ago I noticed them on facebook and added them and things went from there. At it stands, we talk here and there.. probably about once a week and only for about fifteen minutes at a time. He has huge delays in his replies and never starts the conversation, sometimes even ending the conversation randomly by just not replying anymore. So because of all that I get the distinct impression that he doesn't really care about my existence or notice me that much. I saw him face to face a week ago at a friends gathering and we exchanged a few words and he high fived me goodbye, but that's the extent of our face to face contact thus far. I know it sounds like he is not at all interested in me, but I keep reading people say things about never giving up too easily and I'm fairly certain that most of the doubts I have about his dislike for me may be in my head since I always tend to think the worst. I don't want to do what I always do when I like somebody -- shrug and walk away because of my severe low self-esteem, but at the same time I don't want to make a complete idiot out of myself. So what do I do? He is such a hard person to communicate with, online at least, and it's not like I ever really see him face to face that often (if at all really). My friend advised me to just keep talking to them until it gets to the point that we can be considered 'friends' and then think about approaching the subject of meeting up or something, but it's hard enough to keep him talking for longer than fifteen minutes as it is. I know it sounds like I should give up but that's what I always do and I really don't want to this time. I'm tired of letting things happen to me all of the time, I want to take control. TL;DR: I like this guy but he doesn't really take any notice of me and idk what to do.
